All the Ways to Check Out at this Elsewhere-Inspired Villa in the Woodlands

18 Maymont Way, Carlton Way, Woodlands, 77382

Don’t forget your towel or your clubs when visiting this Carlton Woods Estates home, priced at $3.188 million (brought down last week from the $3.388 million August asking price). This 5-bedroom, 5-full-bath, 3-half-bath villa wraps around a central courtyard and pool, and is itself nestled between fairways of the Jack Niklaus Signature Golf Course. The 2-story dwelling clocks in at 9,476 sq ft. and provides plenty of opportunities to get away from it all from the comfort of home.

The third-story cupola offers scenic views of the nearby greens, as well as visitors as they enter the courtyard:

Out back, a water feature and fire pit provide more diversions next to the private putting green:

And opposite the casita at the back of the property sits the 4-car garage:

  • I’m convinced men build these monsters so they never have to see their wife and kids

  • I actually personally knew the guy that built this house (not the current owner) and he had a saying “Marry your second wife first”. Don’t forget the garage is actually air conditioned and the inner courtyard pool area is also conditioned with hidden drip chillers.

  • That’s a pretty sweet little crib from which to run a cocaine empire. Honestly though I really like it. May be a little on the small side for what they are trying to accomplish though (seems like the rooms are all a little on the thin side, but it’s really hard to tell with all the fisheye shots).
