The Property

RECENTLY OFFERED FOR $6.1 MILLION. NOW SELLING AT OR ABOVE ONLY $2 MILLION! This expansive estate combines elegant living quarters with 5 private acres of beautifully manicured grounds. Built in 1994, the stately home is rich in details, from the impressive arrival with two-story porte-cochère, to the sweeping double staircase in the grand foyer and the barrel ceilings embellished with custom murals by celebrated New York artist Tim Martin.

The Property’s main residence offers 5 bedrooms, 5 full and 4 half baths, with approx. 12,275 sf of living space distributed throughout three living levels. Prominent features include a gourmet kitchen with butler’s pantry, fitness center, elevator serving all levels, a two-story executive office with handsome wood finishes throughout, home theater (completed with a half bath and kitchenette), and a private wine room.

In addition to the main residence, the Property also includes a guesthouse (adding 1 bed, 1 bath and 575 sf of living space) and a charming pool house (adding 300 sf and 1 full bathroom with a steam shower and sauna).

Beautifully manicured and lushly landscaped grounds compliment the estate’s plush interiors. Its fully gated 5-acre parcel offers features such as gently winding walking paths, elegant fountains, wrought-iron gazebos, and an elevated trellis and greenhouse, which in total create an “enchanted gardens” atmosphere of privacy and serenity.

The grounds also feature a vast outdoor living area with features such as a large, heated infinity pool with waterfall and spa (designed by Robert E. Forsythe), a covered outdoor kitchen with grill, smoker, and ice machine, and a sprawling pool deck for plenty of poolside fun.

Given the Property’s ample space – both inside and outdoors – it’s no surprise that in addition to serving as a family home, the estate has played host to literally hundreds of social gatherings and society events throughout the years (some events boasting as many as several hundred guests), due to the owners’ involvement in the area’s political and social networks.

The Community

VILLAGE OF GROGAN’S MILL | THE WOODLANDS, TX. Grogan’s Mill, Texas is celebrated as the first village in The Woodlands (and is in fact known as “The Gateway to the Woodlands”). The community, named after the lumber company that previously occupied the land, began in 1974 as a small outpost comprised of a few families, a country club, and a handful of model homes. Today, it boasts more than 5,100 homes and 13,000-plus residents.

As the village has grown, the residents of Grogan’s Mill still find themselves in the center of it all: the area is only minutes from the best in shopping, dining and entertainment The Woodlands has to offer. Sharing a border with  The Woodlands Town Center, Grogan’s Mill is next door to the most desirable places in the community, including The Woodlands Mall, The Woodlands WaterwayMarket Street and Hughes Landing.

In addition to its commercial areas, Grogan’s Mill has twelve parks, which offer a collection of pavilions, gazebos, fishing ponds, tennis courts, jogging trails, and kayak and paddleboard rentals. Truly a welcoming community for family and friends!

The Location

THE WOODLANDS, TX. The Woodlands is considered one of the most successful master-planned communities in the United States. Located 28 miles north of Houston, the community occupies nearly 44 square miles of largely flat land. It is the result of the vision of oil industry investor George P. Mitchell, whose success in the fields of oil, gas, and real estate swelled his net worth to nearly $2 billion at the time of his death in 2013 at the age of 94. The Woodlands received a Special Award for Excellence from the Urban Land Institute in 1994.

The Woodlands is so large and replete with amenities, attractions and commerce that it feels more like a complete “ecosystem” than just another upscale Texas community. In addition to the various residential subdivisions within The Woodlands (referred to as “villages,” some being further divided into neighborhoods within each village), there is also a very robust business environment; in fact, its various corporate campuses are home to industry titans such as ExxonMobil, Hunstman Corporation, Chevron Phillips, Maersk Line, and GeoSouthern Energy.

Entertainment options and lifestyle amenities within The Woodlands are vast. There are more than 150 restaurants, 2 movie theaters, premier music venues such as the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion (the summer home to the Houston Symphony, and ranked the #1 outdoor amphitheater in the world by ticket sales in 2016), and sprawling retail and dining centers such as Market Street and The Woodlands Mall.

Those interested in a more active use of their spare time will enjoy the community’s 7 golf courses (offering a total of 135 holes), 200 acres of lakes, 128 parks (5 of which are dog parks), 200 miles of paths and trails and 6,800 acres of green space. There are also 14 pools and aquatic facilities in The Woodlands, in addition to a large roster of fitness centers, athletic clubs, and smaller studios specializing in yoga and Pilates. Families with younger children will benefit from the highly-ranked Conroe Independent School District, which is available to The Woodlands’ residents.
