Cutouts, diagonals, and other woodworking flourishes on the inside bring a contemporary zip to this stone-faced 2002 custom home located on an island within Lake Conroe’s Bentwater. The waterfront property landed on to the market last weekend with a $1.875 million asking price. The gleaming tawny trim sets up a mod nautical vibe:
Make way for a gangplank-like staircase in the rounded foyer . . .
and some super-sized, super-stylized rigging zig-zagging up one of the many picture windows by the water, facing east:
Artsy portholes ring the balcony above the main living area, which features a stone smokestack:
Columns trimmed top and bottom encircle a step-down space that could be a dining room. Currently, it’s used for billiards:
The home has 2 master suites. Here’s the waterview one downstairs, which has a fish tank mounted over its fireplace:
One of the secondary bedrooms is also on the first floor:
Upstairs, there’s a media room:
A section of the ceiling is vaulted in the upstairs master suite, which has a private balcony:
The 5,871-sq.-ft. home has a total of 5 or 6 bedrooms, depending how you’re furnishing. Each of these samples
has doors to a private balcony:
One of the 5 full bathrooms looks like this:
Viewed from water, the home’s back elevation is symmetrical:
A hot tub anchors one end of the patio that runs the full width of the home . . .
and it incorporates a waterfall that cascades a level down, where there’s an extensive deck:
Curving steps also flow to the deck from the other end of the patio:
Center stage is filled with tiers of landscaping:
Down by water so friendly it waves, the dock accommodates boat and jet-ski lifts, a fish-sink . . .
and steps into the water.
Access to the property is from a private road that rings the gated island, located south of FM 1097 and west of I-45 several miles beyond Conroe.
The golf club community’s annual maintenance fee is $1,950.
