If you’re like me, you enjoy peeking into the homes of those who would qualify for the old Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous television series — champagne wishes, caviar dreams, and gobs of excess. So it is with a certain curiosity that I’m delighted to have this opportunity: to have you join me in perusing the storied Woodlands home of Theresa Roemer.
The contemporary mass of extravagance has been on and off the market for more than five years, and at last it has a buyer.
Attention on the 17,350-square-foot dwelling and on the blonde bombshell chatelaine, dubbed by Texas Monthly “the ultimate real housewife,” spread wildly soon after a Neiman Marcus blog post reported on Roemer’s 3,000-square-foot, $500,000 closet with its own champagne bar. Surely that’s a selling point for a multimillionaire with a taste for extravagance.
After having been on and off the market for more than five years, the residence at 47 Grand Regency Circle in the posh gated community of Carlton Woods is at last under contract. In 2014, the mansion was listed at $12.9 million; later, the asking price dropped to $7 million. In the latest HAR listing, handled by Nancy Almodovar with Nan & Company Properties/Christie’s International Real Estate, the asking price was $6,499,000. This time around, the mansion was on the market for only 50 days before Almodovar welcomed a buyer to the table. It’s expected to close at the beginning of October.
Mum’s the word on who is buying and what they’re paying.
Theresa and Lamar Roemer, a former tennis pro who did very well in the oil fields, have shared the home with their combined families of five children. Since those chicks have long left the nest, the couple is looking to downsize.
The new owners will have plenty of space to move around and to entertain. The Roemers have held charity events for as many as 500, with a Saks Fifth Avenue fashion show taking place on a platform raised above the swimming pool à la the River Oaks Country Club tennis tournament luncheon.
