The 11 Most Expensive Houses Sold in Houston — Another Record Month Sees Some Big Money Stunners Change Hands

Your Inside Look at the Homes That Buyers Craved

BY // 07.14.21

Houstonians continue to snap up single family homes at an unprecedented rate as noted in the Houston Association of Realtors’ latest monthly report, which was released Wednesday. In June, single family home sales moved 13.9 percent ahead of sales from June 2020. Homes priced from $750,000 and more dominated in sales volume with a 136.5 percent year-over-year increase.

Cost appeared to be no object for some buyers dealing with limited supply and embracing low interest rates. Among the 9,702 houses sold in Houston last month, a significant number were in the multi-million dollar range. For more details on the 11 most expensive homes sold in the Houston area during the month of June, read on.

1). 3839 Inverness

The priciest sale of the month took place only five days after the home at 3839 Inverness in River Oaks went on the market. We are surprised as the 6,532 square foot dwelling, built in 1952, is one of the smallest and certainly the oldest on the roundup of top sellers.

With a mere four bedrooms, four full baths and two half baths, the house was listed for $5,950,000 with Laura Sweeney of Compass. Another top-producing agent, Walter Bering of Martha Turner Sotheby’s International Realty, brought the buyer. The house sits on more than half an acre of park-like grounds and offers a prestigious pedigree with the original design coming from acclaimed architecture firm Staub Rather and a revitalization courtesy of the craftsmanship of Costa Custom Homes with the selections by Cathy Chapman
