You can live here
Do you feel lucky? How would you like to have your bedroom designed by Mary Lou Retton or your media room designed by Rockets forward Chuck Hayes? There’s only one place where this sort of miracle can happen. It’s in Sienna Plantation at the Meritage Homes All-Star Miracle Home.
Meritage Homes, one of Houston’s largest production builders, has made a pledge to the children of Houston; specifically, the kids of the Children’s Miracle Network. By purchasing a $100 entry, you can win this home and make miracles happen for children in your community. Your eyes are not deceiving you, you read correctly: Meritage Homes is giving away a fully furnished, luxurious home valued at $500,000. This 4,191-square-foot home in Missouri City has upgraded interior features, a deluxe pool, professional landscaping and is valued at $500,000!
The rotunda entrance sets the tone for this upscale address as a beautiful spiral staircase leads you up to the game room, media room and bedrooms. To the left of the entrance, just off of the formal dining area, is a world-class kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances and granite countertops. A breakfast nook and formal living area both look out to the fully landscaped backyard and a deluxe pool provided by Anthony and Sylvan Pools. On the way to the two-car detached garage (complete with a GarageTek storage system) is a must for every south Texas home: a covered patio! The master bedroom and bath are true gems with a stunning four-poster bed taking center stage. The bed, along with every piece of furniture and accessory in the entire home, has been provided by Hilton Furniture.
If you’ve been hearing a lot about this house, it’s because Mary Lou Retton and Tracy McGrady, two of Houston’s most celebrated sports figures, are serving as celebrity spokespeople. This community fund-raiser, aiming to raise $2 million for Children’s Miracle Network of the Greater Houston area and the Houston Rockets’ Clutch City Foundation, is off to a gold-medal beginning. “Mary Lou Retton and Tracy McGrady are all stars in everyone’s opinion, and we are proud to have them supporting this very worthy cause,” says Michael J. Pizzitola Jr., president of the south Texas region for Meritage Homes. “When we decided to launch the All-Star Miracle Home in Houston, we knew it would instantly appeal to this very giving community and its leaders.”
Along with the home, anyone who enters by purchasing a $100 entry is automatically entered to win a variety of early-bird or runner-up prizes, including a trip, jewelry, shopping sprees, a road trip with the Houston Rockets and much more. Only 20,000 entries are available for the All-Star Miracle Home, and the home will be given away in February 2007.
“What makes the All-Star Miracle Home so unique is that everyone involved in this community fundraiser has donated their materials, time, money and so much more,” said John Scales, senior vice president of the Children’s Miracle Network of the greater Houston area. “This way, all the money we raise will go directly to sick and injured kids in Houston who really need our help.”
Children’s Miracle Network of the greater Houston area provides financial relief to families who are unable to pay their child’s medical costs. Funds will also go to the Clutch City Foundation. The home is located in Sienna Plantation’s Spice Ridge neighborhood at 10506 Shipman’s Landing, Missouri City, Texas 77459. RE/MAX of Texas is hosting the home, and it is now open to the public for daily tours.
