RECENTLY $6.75 MILLION. NOW SELLING WITHOUT RESERVE! This “showroom-caliber” estate occupies 1.5 acres within the exclusive Carlton Woods community in The Woodlands. Located on a cul-de-sac and adjacent to the 12th and 13th holes of the community’s acclaimed Nicklaus course, the Property offers added peace and privacy. An 11,000-interior includes 5 bedrooms, 8 full and 2 half baths, with a “bonus room” suitable for conversion to a 6th bedroom or fitness center. The Property was designed by Sullivan, Henry, Oggero & Associates and newly completed in 2016 by Matt Powers Custom Homes.
The approach to the home is enhanced by a motor court of patterned stone, while the Property’s dual, two-car garages are located on the side of the residence. Beautiful grounds planned by Moss Landscaping include manicured lawns and a charming English-style garden surrounded by a pathway of limestone laid in a herringbone pattern. The limestone path connects the garden to a gorgeous custom pool with infinity spa designed by Texas Pools, and an adjacent fire pit is flanked by the same large limestone paving stones that surround the pool. A large, outdoor pavilion with wood-burning fireplace, A/V system, and lounge area also offers a well-appointed summer kitchen complete with small beverage cooler, ice maker and built-in Wolf grill with an additional cooktop burner. There is also an in-ground trampoline with an AstroTurf apron for kids of all ages!
Spacious rooms outfitted in elegant woodwork and fine finishes characterize this lovely Property, while custom-made doors, bespoke molding, and hand-beveled and scraped French oak floors create an atmosphere of approachable elegance. Upon entry, a grand foyer offers vaulted ceilings and views of the open-plan living and dining rooms flanked by exquisitely trimmed columns and archways.
A fireplace warms the living room, and beautiful built-in cabinets with glass doors showcase objects d’art and collectibles. Directly adjacent to the foyer, an intimate study features built-in bookcases and rich, wood-paneled walls. A gourmet kitchen with an enormous, marble-topped center island, top-of-the-line appliances and built-in buffet is connected to the dining room by a butler’s pantry, and an adjacent breakfast/family room opens to both the outdoors and a large entertainment lounge with an adjacent, multi-screen media room.
Bedrooms are spacious, and the home offers two master suites: the upper-level suite is sumptuous, with a private vestibule entrance and completely separate his-and-hers bathrooms, while the main-level, “junior master” suite is perfect for guests, with its fantastic views of the backyard and golf course. The balance of the bedrooms each have en-suite baths and custom built-ins.
Lofted ceilings with intricate woodworking and trim, custom window coverings, and a Crestron home automation system complement the beautiful architecture and finishes of this estate, which was also built to LEED standards and practices.

CARLTON WOODS, TX. Often referred to as the “Beverly Hills of Texas,” Carlton Woods is the premier gated community in The Woodlands, and is home to a collection of impressive, single-family estates. The entry point for home ownership in Carlton Woods is approximately $1 million, with a select number of homes reaching prices up to $20 million. Residents enjoy twenty-four-hour security behind manned guard gates.
There are two sections that comprise Carlton Woods: the 500-acre Carlton Woods Creekside community, and the 827-acre Carlton Woods Sterling Ridge (the latter being where the Property is located). The Sterling Ridge community is home to the 7,402-yard, par 72 Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, and is also located within Montgomery County, offering a lower tax rate than neighboring Harris County (where the Creekside portion of the community, featuring its own Tom Fazio Championship Course, is located).
All Carlton Woods residents have access to the highly acclaimed Club at Carlton Woods,* which in addition to its two golf courses offers two, award-winning clubhouses that are each loaded with an array of upscale amenities including a 7,000-sf club house with state-of-the-art fitness center, tennis complex and aquatic center, in addition to dining options including the exclusive Nicklaus Grille.
*Note: The Club at Carlton Woods is a private membership club. Homeowners within Carlton Woods are not required to be members of the Club, and Club membership is obtained separately from homeownership
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 Devon 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 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.
