Welcome to Regency Woods, a stunning Mediterranean style estate located north of Houston in The Woodlands. Enter through the iron gates and curve around the cobblestone circular driveway to arrive in paradise; where Knotty Alder French doors greet and invite you into the refinement that awaits within. Clearly, no expense was spared in the details, those of rich wood and travertine flooring, arched walkways, and expansive windows. Regency Woods is the ultimate entertainer’s home, as well as your own private oasis; the best of both worlds!
The grand foyers’ curved staircase with scrolled iron balusters wraps around a crystal chandelier. A striking formal living room with exposed beam ceilings and stone fireplace, plus an adjacent wet bar, are the perfect place for cocktails and conversation. For less formal gatherings, the family room offers an elegant fireplace, a brick-detailed groin ceiling, and a built-in rich wood media center.
The beautifully designed main chef’s kitchen features custom knotty alder cabinetry, an expansive granite-topped eat-in island, copper farmer’s sink, and top-of-the-line appliances. In addition to the main kitchen is a catering kitchen and butler’s pantry which make culinary creation for both small parties and huge galas convenient and streamlined. Guests can enjoy meals while admiring the grounds from the formal dining room, which boasts soaring, arched windows on three sides.
Entertaining is never a problem at Regency Woods. A built-in media center dominates the game room, while a recessed box beam ceiling, cathedral doors, and theater lighting offer classically beautiful ambiance and abundant space.
Everyone needs a retreat at the end of the day, and at Regency Woods the master suite is precisely that. The soaring ceiling echoes the arched cathedral French doors and features an elegant chandelier, while the beamed cornices frame views of the courtyard and pool beyond. The master bath features his and her marble topped vanities and closets with a jewelry armoire and dressing valet for ultimate luxury. Relish mornings in the spacious walk-through shower with multiple showerheads or take a relaxing soak in the jetted spa tub at the end of a long day.
The first floor offers a second bedroom suite, while four additional en-suite bedrooms each boast private vestibule entries from both the first and second floors. The refined upper study offers a quiet retreat, while working out in the climate-controlled exercise room is the perfect way to stay fit.
With so many wonders to be discovered inside the home, many more awaits outdoors. The stunning, two-tiered courtyard is the true heart of the residence. Relax beneath the wrap-around covered lanai or enjoy views of the sparkling pool from the balconies above. A separate, raised spa is both elegant and soothing, while the elaborate and stunning water feature offers tranquility and beauty. Pure white curtains dance in the breeze around the outdoor covered patio with its own alfresco fireplace.
Beyond the courtyard walls lies an outdoor terrace that would rival any 5-star resort. It is accessible through an ornate gated archway, as well as a series of French doors from various other entertaining spaces throughout the home. Mature palm trees and other flora grace the grounds. Columns with sleek sconces support an expansive veranda with everything you need for outside entertaining including a full black granite-topped bar that comfortably seats eight guests. Gleaming travertine tile steps down into a spacious sitting area beneath a fleet of fans that offer cool, comfortable enjoyment, while water features create a fresh, relaxing ambiance. An outdoor summer kitchen completes the terrace, while stone walkways wind through grassy lawns and lush greenery.
