Listing Remarks

WELCOME TO THE BEACONSFIELD!!! Built in 1911, located in Downtown Houston, the Beaconsfield has stood the test of time as Houston’s oldest-surviving, high-rise residential building. The historical preservation and value of this only-of-its-kind, structure is so highly regarded that it is nationally recognized and protected by the U.S. National Registry of Historic Places. Glancing through the main entrance into a quaint Old-World setting lobby, it's easily to see how this Houston landmark was said to be the "Beacon that attracts many prominent tenants to plush, elegant decor” and was a sanctuary to Houston’s most successful and prosperous elite - Howard Hughes family, one of many. Luxurious unit on the 6th floor - one of only 16 residential units - offers spacious layout, impressive beamed ceilings, fireplace, updated bathrooms and kitchen, unbelievable ambience and iconic Downtown skyline views. What a historic place to make it your home. Schedule your private showing today!

Photo #1 Built in 1911 and located in Downtown Houston, the Beaconsfield has stood the test of time as the city of Houston’s oldest-surviving, high-rise residential condominium building. In 1911, it was considered to be modern itself — celebrated as one of the Houston’s first sky-scrapers.

Photo #3 Pause to take a closer look at many fine architectural and distinctive details — "a dark red rusticated base and contrasting buff terra cotta shaft and crown,
Photo #4 Anyone, glancing through the main entrance French doors and into a quaint Old-World setting lobby, can easily see how this Houston landmark was said to be the "Beacon that attracts many prominent tenants to plush, elegant decor.”
Photo #5 Another view of the lobby. "In the early days at the Beaconsfield, each morning, the staff would roll out a white linen runner to the front curb where drivers would pick up tenants for the short journey into town. In the evenings, a fresh runner would be rolled out, welcoming residents home."
Photo #6 From here there is access to storage units, a laundry, a convenient freight elevator and a second entrance, connected to the parking lot. Both original 100 year old elevators were manually operated by concierge until 2006! Now modernized - and still very unique - passenger and freight elevators provide access to the main entrance of each unit (two per floor) and to the kitchen in the back.
Photo #7 Off-shoulder the lobby and main elevator, a cozy hall gives the impressions of a luxurious hotel with its vintage wall sconce light radiating a warm and welcoming glow, decorative carpeting, and stunning wood paneling.
Photo #8 Back view of the building.
Photo #9 Upon entrance to the spacious 6B unit (only two units per floor), you’re welcomed into a large living room, graced with impressive coffered ceilings — an architectural feature classic to the building and marble gas fireplace (non-functioning - gas connection available). The living space is open to the dining room to the left side and library/den to the right. It features large windows on opposite sides of the room providing natural light and downtown views to enjoy.
Photo #10 Virtually staged photo.
Photo #11 Remodeled with today’s resident in mind, this unit features many original details preserving its history and a century old luxurious charm.
Photo #12 Another view of the dining area.
