London, Jan 22 (ANI): Beyonce Knowles is said to be splashing out 5.9 million dollars on a palatial Houston home for her mother Tina.

The 31-year-old singer, who was brought up in the Texan city, is reported to be close to finalising a deal on the six bedroom, 16 bathroom mansion, the Daily Mail reported.

Located in the prestigious Piney Point village, the home is reported to have been reduced from an asking price of 20 million dollars just three years ago.

The 25,000 square ft house sits on two acres of land and features a games room, two jacuzzis, and a pool.

It also boasts a private screening room for Tina to watch all her daughter's movies and music videos on leather couches with suede upholstered walls and black out curtains.

A listing on HoustonMansion.com describes the third floor games room as being equipped with a pool table, gaming tables and a hidden television.

Judging by interior shots of the mansion, the design has been heavily influenced by French and Italian architecture, with ornate murals on the walls and intricate carved murals.
