There is one bedroom on the first floor that is NOT the MASTER. This is the full bath attached to that bedroom. The vanity area is separate from the tub/shower and toilet room. Doubles as the POWDER BATH.
The first floor BEDROOM (11 x 11) is currently used as a STUDY. The reach in closet is out of view . Note the HUGE BACKYARD that has a low maintenance ground cover. Plenty of room for swing set or fort, but FIRE TRUCK PARK is blocks away!
The staircase is adjacent to the art niche and storage closet just off the main GALLERY surrounding the FAMILY ROOM. This floor plan is functional and beautiful.
The MASTER BEDROOM (18 x 15) is located on the second floor and opens to a "room size" balcony and the loft that overlooks the Family Room below. There is a fireplace with brick wall and wooden mantle. Cathedral ceiling and 2 walk in closets too!
The BALCONY off the MASTER BEDROOM is quite large and provides an additional outdoor living space. The pool and gardens are just below the balcony. Great space for a cup of coffee and newspaper in the morning or a good book in the evening.
The MASTER BATH boasts double marble vanity with integral make up knee space, separate shower, jacuzzi tub and private water closet with toilet and bidet. Spa time!
The large walk in marble shower with frameless glass enclosure is adjacent to the jacuzzi tub and the double vanity. Lots of cabinets and storage drawers below the marble vanity.

Another secondary bedroom on the second floor with en suite bath boasts cathedral ceiling too!
Just to the left at the top of the landing on the second floor is the GAME ROOM and LAUNDRY ROOM. Wonderful folding bar and hanging rod to hang up freshly laundered clothes.
One of the secondary en suite baths! Every bedroom at 3704 Carlon boasts an en suite bath! Incredible location just minutes from the Texas Medical Center, Downtown, Greenway Plaze and the Galleria!
