People in Houston are quick to point out that that this area used to be Spain. What they fail to remember is that this area also used to be France. This home tucked into a hidden drive in the Memorial area is a wonderful nod to the motherland. It is a full French château just a few minutes from Interstate 10. It was built at considerable expense using limestone quarried in France and shipped over for this home. Neighbors say the cost of building the immense home actually contributed to the financial demise of its original owner, but that has not been substantiated.
