Houston’s 10 Priciest Homes — More Real Estate Records Fall With Woodlands Mansions Leading the Way

Luxury Houses Keep Selling in Record Time

BY // 09.09.21

Amid Houston’s rollicking real estate market, luxury home sales — those priced from $750,000 and above — saw a 30.5 percent year-over-year jump in sales in August. Overall, according to the Houston Association of Realtors (HAR) August 2021 Market Update, single-family homes sales rose 8.5 percent versus last August, with 9,890 units sold overall.

But the most expensive seemed to be flying off the shelf with three of the Top 10 Most Expensive Homes Sold in Houston selling in less than a month.

Take a look below at the 10 most expensive Houston area homes sold in August of 2021, according to HAR. The top sellers range from a massive 20,00 square foot mansion in Stablewood to a lock-and-leave penthouse in The Sophie on Memorial Drive.

99 Grand Regency Circle

99 Grand Regency Circle in The Woodlands tallied in as the priciest home sale in the area for the month of August. Posted list price was $7.5 million.

Tagged as Villa Pineta, this gilded behemoth in The Woodlands with three dwellings measuring in total at 14,299 square feet commanded the highest sale price in the month of August with a list price of $7.5 million. We bet no small part of that covered the lazy river pool and spa and the wealth of baroque decorative touches that are ingeniously enveloped in a structure of rustic overhead beams.

Somebody was quickly enamored of the splendiferous dwelling as it was on the market for a mere 28 days. Villa Pineta by the numbers: seven bedrooms total, seven full and three half baths, and a 6,000 square foot carriage house and a six-bay garage.

8823 Harness Creek Lane

The HAR listing describes this 20,157 square foot residence, dubbed La Perse (translates to “the Persian”), in the gated Stablewood Community off of Memorial Drive as offering “three levels of uninhibited luxury.” Indeed, the grand foyer reminds of the Bristol Hotel in Paris. The ornate finishes recall The Ritz in Paris.

Seven bedrooms, seven full and three half baths, four fireplaces and a posh media room add up to excellence that commanded a $5 million list price.

27 Grand Regency Circle

27 Grand Regency Circle in the Carlton Woods enclave in The Woodlands sold in 35 days with a list price of $5.1 million.

Even larger than the top selling mansion, this neighbor in The Woodlands village of Carlton Woods measuring in at 14,811 square feet was listed at a modest (by comparison) $5.1 million. Six bedrooms, seven full and three half baths (the primary bath large enough for a cocktail party), two ground floor home offices/studies, four fireplaces, a five-car attached garage and the requisite swimming pool are included in the vast space.

This new construction in Tanglewood was on the market for a mere 25 days before a buyer snatched it up. List price $4.750 million.

Practically before the paint dried on this Sims Luxury Builders’ English-inspired dwelling in Tanglewood, it was sold. In a mere 25 days with a list price of $4,750,000. This three-story home by the numbers: four bedrooms, four full and three half baths, two fireplaces, four massive so-called extra rooms or gathering rooms, two separate study/library rooms to double as home offices, two stairways and elevator.
