A Lot More in Atascocita Shores

A little subdividing might still be ahead for this biggest-in-the neighborhood property in Atascocita Shores. An older listing tried to sell off only the 2-lot portion containing the builder-owned 1990 home and fronting a secluded cul-de-sac near-but-not-on Lake Houston. The re-listing earlier this month, however, includes the entire acre-and-a-quarter, which also backs up to a stretch of the neighborhood’s namesake roadway. That 2-sided access might be handy since the 2 routes to the site from a fork in the road have similar names (Atascocita Point Dr. and Atascocita Place Dr.).


Wainscot panels make several appearances throughout the home, starting in the heavy columns of the front hall (above) and adjacent living room:

The double-sided fireplace has kept its marbles for the formal dining room (above). The flip side is in the den, where the surround is more casual:

The 3,951-sq.-ft. home’s first floor has 5 or 6 bedrooms, including this master suite, found in mint condition:

Part of the floor plan gets tagged as an in-law apartment with outdoor access (at right), a sitting room, and a bedroom with bath:

In what is described as the “apartment-game room” (above), a plaid crash pad carves out an alcove (at right). Window placement suggests the space is upstairs. There’s also a media room somewhere in the house. Meanwhile, in a room of its own overlooking a patio and some of the tree-studded yard, a 3-lane pool provides some protected shoreline:

Parking around the property includes space for 6 vehicles (and boat storage). There’s also a garage apartment:

Back in November of 2011, the original listing sought $675,000 for the home-half of the property. That asking price had dropped to $420,000 by February 2013. In a separate listing added this month, the entire 55,546 sq. ft. of property is included in the $649,000 asking price. There’s also a $1,425 annual maintenance fee.
