Luxury Home Builder Resurrects River Oaks Project

by Houston Agent

Winfield Gate, seen here in an artist's rendering, will begin construction in 2012 after a four-year delay.

Rohe & Wright Builders, a luxury home builder, is reviving Winfield Gate, a gated development of 21 town homes that was shelved in late 2008.

Inspired by Winfield House, a mansion in London of Georgian influences that houses the U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom, the project’s resurgence is a strong sign of the upward trends in Houston’s housing sector.

“The market’s been very good in the last almost year,” Andy Suman, a partner with Rohe & Wright, told the Houston Chronicle.

The homes, which will be named after U.S. Ambassadors, will have a litany of features, such as elevators, wine vaults, rooftop terraces and a high level security system similar to that of the Federal Reserve Building. Some will be as large as 6,000 square feet and cost as much as $2 million.

Demolition has begun on the existing properties, and construction is due to begin late next year.
