Safari-themed Houston home lists for $350K; furniture and decor is up for grabs

A unique, safari-themed home recently hit the market in the Cypress area with four bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, a two-car garage, a pool, an elaborate outdoor kitchen, and a personality like no other.

A large mural of a safari scene with a big leopard covers one of its upper walls, an indoor koi pond is tucked underneath the staircase, and its living room and indoor bar space is filled with animal decor, from monkeys to giraffes, elephants, birds and more. 

The home touted on HAR.com as a “one of a kind tropical oasis” is located at 11907 Fawnview Drive in the Lakewood Forest community and sits on a spacious 9,828 square foot lot. It’s listed for $350,000.

When realtor Don Hulen listed the property, he almost considered having the owner paint over the mural and scale back the decor, but decided to leave it because of its uniqueness. 

“Granted it’s not everybody’s taste,” he said. “We’re hoping maybe she finds the perfect buyer with the same interests as her.” 

If so, all the furnishing and decor is negotiable, and the owner is willing to leave everything “if the price is right,” Hulen said. If not, they are open and prepared to take everything out so the buyer can start a fresh slate. 

Another one of those “interests” is Houston sports. One of the bedrooms is decked out in Texans and Astros gear, with a custom-made Texans couch, curtains, and murals of the Astros’ Jose Altuve and former Texan J.J.Watt covering the wall.

“This house (is) an entertainer’s dream,” Hulen said. “Someone who wants to have people over, relax by the pool, somebody who wants a really big master bedroom.”

The owner is very meticulous about her home and has taken great care of it, he said, pouring more than $100,000 into the outdoor kitchen.

The outdoor kitchen features a stove top, double sink, refrigerator, Weber grill, gas lamps, and a brick oven, according to the listing, and is surrounded by a hot tub and pool with the furniture in it.

“People like to lounge on those hot Houston days,” Hulen said. 

“Why sit by the pool when you can sit in the pool. Stay cool in the pool.”

Although Hulen describes this home as “one of a kind,” he said custom-made homes are common in this neighborhood. 

“No two homes are alike,” he said. “It’s not your standard subdivision like these new houses that all have the same floor plan. (There’s) not a lot of flavor. This neighborhood has a lot of character because it’s an established neighborhood.”
