Listing her home caps a whirlwind 5 months for Theresa Roemer. Back in June, The Woodlands socialite threw open the doors to her 3-story, 3,000-sq.-ft., $500k “she-cave” to a blogger from Neiman-Marcus, a move that would eventually attract both scorn and “You go, girl!” sentiments from around the world.
A burglar struck soon thereafter, and then attempted to blackmail her by threatening to tell the world that at least some of the haul of allegedly designer goods from her opulent trove were mere fakes, a threat the as-yet-unapprehended thief eventually carried out.
Around the same time, Roemer sued her estranged stepson for defamation of character. That matter has since settled, but the upheaval isn’t over: Roemer is now selling her home in the Carlton Woods subdivision of The Woodlands.
And when we say Roemer is selling her house, we mean just that: she is the listing agent for the 17,315 sq.-ft., 9-10 bedroom, 10 full and three half-bath, one 3-story closet manse at 47 Grand Regency Dr. The asking price: $12.9 million.
You’ve seen the pics on teevee, Culturemap and on newspapers from around the world. Here are real-live listing pics, and not just of the closet, but the whole house!
Here we are peering down the floating staircase towards a lower level of the closet, basking in the warm glow of a Swarovski crystal chandelier…
“Glamor abounds” around the second-level wet bar in Roemer’s sanctum sanctorum. Roemer has said she has hosted many a fund-raiser in her closet. (Indeed, she has said that charity is the main reason it exists.)
But it’s not all champers and canapes; the closet is eminently functional, warmly-lit and offering an abundance of storage space and a dressing station.
The his closet is no slouch. Feast your eyes on that natural lighting!
Tearing ourselves away from the she-cave, we approach the grand entryway, illuminated by a chandelier hand-made by Egyptian craftsmen:
