- 3710 Purdue St. [HAR]
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.
COMMENT OF THE DAY: THE GROHE IN THE SHOWER, THE CHICKEN ON THE FLOOR, THE ‘CAUFFERED’ CEILING, AND OTHER TALES OF CAREFULLY OBSERVED RENOVATION “So yeah, I didn’t know this site existed until my realtor pointed out that my shower head was on here — and of course he told me not to comment, but who am I to listen? I am a woman. For the record, all of the electrical, plumbing and insulation has been replaced or is new, and we actually fired two contractors because we felt like their quality wasn’t up to par with our expectations or something that we would be proud to sell, but after working with them, I can see why @commonsense would feel that way . . . we felt the same, but I promise ALL corners weren’t cut, just the ones that no one would notice. :) I’m kidding — honestly, it is costing us a little more because of it, but I am a Grohe and Hansgrohe girl, and no one could tell me that we were using any other shower faucets and fixtures. Thanks for complimenting the paint color, it is Repose Gray from Sherwin Williams, freaking goes with everything. @Lykos, my realtor swears it was a mistake, but I told him to leave “shower heard” because I thought your comment was hilarious. But then I thought, “shower hear” might be funnier because of the play on “here” and “hear”. Also, I think he was drinking with the ‘cauffered’ thing while listing this. He is correcting that, and we appreciate your pointing it out. Please keep thinking we’re funny. @Texmex01: Right? I would have thought the same thing, but location, and who am I to judge? @Gisgo: Again, market. I actually prefer that the kitchen be separate, so that if I accidentally drop someone’s chicken on the floor and have to put it back on a plate, no one knows but me. This whole open concept thing means I’d be cooking another chicken breast. @Toby, you’re welcome to come take more professional shots, the wide angle seems to drain the battery so the flash wasn’t working at that point if I remember correctly. Regardless of all of that, we had a party there with some investor friends and there is leftover beer and wine, so if you did want to see it in person, I’d be happy to meet you there. :) Oh, and @Benjy, this is for you: https://mubi.com/films/plan-9-from-outer-space” [Kile, commenting on Houston Home Listing Photo of the Day: It Came to Me in the Shower].
