About 1558 Kirby Drive

Set behind private gates within a handsome garden and backing to Lazy Lane, 1558 Kirby Drive is a classic English manor house overlooking a half-acre-plus landscape with expansive terraces, swimming pool and even a delightful playhouse for the kids. It is an exceptional example of early River Oaks design and demonstrates the aspiration to put craftsmanship on show and display the quality of functional design and materials. It has had just two owners. Clad in white-washed red brick with a roof of wallaba wood shingles, the home’s first floor has been designed to provide useful and beautiful rooms, including the recently remodeled kitchen, breakfast room and family room, cypress-paneled study with wet bar, formals, sunroom and even a delicious little music room with velvet-covered walls. All the principal bedrooms are located on the second floor, along with two extra rooms. There is a good-size cellar with plenty of storage and a roomy apartment over the three-car garage.

School information is generated by the most current available data we have. However, as school boundary maps can change, and schools can get too crowded (whereby students zoned to a school may not be able to attend in a given year if they are not registered in time), you need to independently verify and confirm enrollment and all related information directly with the school.
