The 10 Most Expensive Homes Sold in Houston — See the River Oaks, Sugar Land and Woodlands Stunners

New October Stats Reveal Some House Truths

BY // 11.15.20

So what’s the criteria for selling at the top of the totem pole in Houston’s single family real estate market? We surveyed the leading luxury home sales for October as recorded by HAR and have found several constants in terms of square footage, number of bedrooms and baths, and neighborhood.

It’s no surprise that bigger commands a higher price. But size isn’t everything. Consider that the highest priced home sale in October was that of the graceful River Oaks dwelling at 3950 Inverness with a gentle architectural nod to the Mediterranean. Although the property measures in at a mere 9,640 square feet, not so big compared to the largest house in the October field, it topped the listing prices at $7.5 million. River Oaks clearly has its cachet.

The largest house among the leading sellers was 7 Paradise Point in Sugar Land which measures 13,467 square feet. The list price belied the vastness at a “mere” $5.2 million.

For each of the most expensive homes sold in October, the norm was no less than five bedrooms but most boast six bedrooms with six full baths and two half baths. These are the 10 most expensive homes sold in Houston for the month:
