Beyonce is known to sing the praises of her hometown of Houston, Texas. Her self-titled fifth studio album is littered with references to “H-Town,” from her pageant contestant character Miss Third Ward to a sampled acceptance speech during “Haunted,” in which she declares, “I love you Houston!”
If Queen Bey is looking to purchase a prime piece of real estate in Texas’ largest metropolis, the members of the Beyhive at BuzzBuzzHome suggest she check out Arábella, a 34-story luxury condominium with fritted glass and a thread of blue LED light that runs vertically up the building.
The jaw-dropping Park Avenue Penthouse boasts three bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, maid’s quarters, study and a playroom (you know, for Blue Ivy). The kitchen is open-concept, with plenty of counter space and bar seating off the island. There’s a separate dining room for hosting formal get-togethers and each bedroom has its own full bathroom. The ensuite features a soaker tub and separate walk-in shower, not to mention the television and heated tile floors.
There are two outdoor terraces, one of which has a private swimming pool with views of the Houston skyline and Memorial Park. Next time BK is “out that H-town / Coming, coming down” so to speak, she should make time to tour this palatial penthouse.
