Every room with a view of Lake Conroe, that’s what we’re talking about. An 8,705 square foot stone and timbered dwelling on a waterfront peninsula at Willis delivers that and more. The custom home at 9144 Escondido Drive — designed by architect Mark Todd and built from a hand hewn Dutch barn, circa 1810 — is on the greater Houston market with a list price of $4,750,000.

Mixed hardwood flooring with knotty alder trim, doors and cabinets and rough hewn beam details combined with rough stone give the home a romantic rustic feel. But there is nothing rustic about the amenities.

Consider the two generators, a bar with wine cellar, a safe room, a salt water infinity pool and hot tub, and a chef’s kitchen outfitted with Wolf appliances.

This Lake Conroe retreat is a family home built for entertaining with an open floor plan featuring a large game room downstairs with expansive views of the lake and another on the second floor. The waterfront diversions are plentiful starting with the previously mentioned infinity pool overlooking the lake. The spacious summer kitchen and outdoor entertainment area comes complete with a fireplace and a cooking area with its own grill and a bar. Big Ass fans are employed to keep it cool.

For true water enthusiasts, this Lake Conroe retreat includes a covered boat dock with the design based on that of an English barn making it quite picturesque. The dock has two boat slips and slips for a pair of jet skis.
