2 Electra Circle, The Woodlands, was one of the most expensive homes selling in the Houston area during the month of July, according to the Houston Association of Realtors.
Continuing on a climb that somewhat inexplicably gained momentum during the pandemic, Houston homes priced from $750,000 and above led the way in sales volume in July with a 36.7 percent year-over-year increase, according to the Houston Association of Realtors. These are Houston’s most expensive home sales from July (the latest month figures are available from):
3024 Del Monte
The top seller was in the buyer’s hands almost before the paint dried on the new construction, which was listed at $9.5 million. With design by Robert Dame, interiors from Contour Design (aka Nina Magon Design) and construction by Fifty Seventh + 7th, the 10,340 square foot, six bedroom mansion was a non-too-difficult sell.
Four fireplaces, a wine room, catering kitchen, pool, spa and summer kitchen contribute to the allure of the Parisian-inspired dwelling.
This new construction in River Oaks was on the market for less than three months before it was scooped up with a list price of $5,785,000. At 7,185 square foot, the house has five bedrooms, five full baths, five half baths, four fireplaces, a wine room, game room swimming pool and summer kitchen.
Secluded on a 1.3-acre lot, this 14,000 square foot custom compound with a list price of $5,750,000 ranked third on the list of top sellers. With seven bedrooms, eight full baths and three half baths, a wine room, game room, library, family room and all the requisite other rooms, there is clearly a need for the extensive staff accommodations in the detached garage apartment.
Add the home generator, garage space for six vehicles, swimming pool and owner’s suite with private terrace and it feels that this might have been a bargain.
