Carlton Woods Residence on 1.5-Acre Lot Selling Without Reserve
An impressive residence in the upscale Carlton Woodscommunity within The Woodlands, TX has been scheduled for sale via luxury auction® on August 18th. Recently asking $6.75 million, the property is now being auctioned without reserve, meaning that the highest bidder will become the new homeowner regardless of the bid amount. Luxury real estate auction house Platinum Luxury Auctions, which previously produced the Woodlands’ record sale of $7.1 million in 2016, is working in cooperation with veteran listing agent and top-producer Beth Ferester of Beth Ferester and Company for the transaction.
The homeowners relied heavily on Ferester’s input when electing to auction the home. According to Ferester, Platinum’s intensive deal management and focused service model were decisive factors in selecting the Miami-based firm. “Like Platinum, it is quality rather than quantity that is the base of our business model, and it has worked well for us over the past 36 years,” she stated.
“Beth is a proven force in the luxury real estate industry, and has probably already forgotten more about selling Texas property than most of us will ever learn,” noted Trayor Lesnock, Platinum’s president and founder. “We’re excited to work together on a home that is sure to impress even the most particular luxury homebuyer.”
According to Lesnock, the hardly two-year-old residence is fit for a showroom. “What is perhaps most impressive is that the home is in ‘camera-ready’ condition even while serving as a primary residence for a growing family,” he added. “It’s an excellent sign of pride of ownership.”
The home was designed by Sullivan, Henry, Oggero & Associates and newly completed in 2016 by Matt Powers Custom Homes. Built in accord with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards, it offers 11,150 interior square feet throughout two living levels, with 5 bedrooms, 8 full and 2 half baths. A “bonus” room can be used as a sixth bedroom.
All bedrooms are quite spacious and include en-suite baths. Custom built-ins in the children’s rooms offer ample work-study and storage space. A sumptuous master suite on the upper level features a private vestibule entrance and his-and-hers bathrooms, while a “junior master” suite on the entry level is perfect for guests or live-in staff.
Additional interior features include an elevator, grand salon, gourmet kitchen with oversized island, upper and lower entertainment lounges, and a gentlemen’s “sports cave” offering 3 wall-mounted televisions for the avid sports enthusiast. Fine finishes are located throughout the residence, and include bespoke molding, hand-beveled and scraped French oak floors, and wood-paneled walls.
Outdoor amenities are also sure to impress. The neatly manicured grounds were created with the help of Moss Landscaping, and include an English-style garden, firepit with seating area, and an in-ground trampoline offering fun for all ages.
The home’s outdoor living area – located just off the lower-level family room and entertainment area – features a covered lounge with a fireplace, television, built-in audio/video system, and an adjacent summer kitchen with a Wolf grill. A custom pool and spa surrounded by a paved pool deck are just steps away from the lounge.
Carlton Woods requires that property previews are conducted by appointment.
