ONE OF THE most opulent homes in Kingwood just hit the market this afternoon, and we've got the pics!


The three-story spread at 8 Deer Ridge Estates Boulevard is listed for $5.5 million. Boasting more than 17,000 square feet, the palatial house was completed in 2005 after a four-year build based on architect John Henry's designs. It sits on a four-acre hillside lot said to be the highest point in the suburb.

The house has an indoor half basketball court, a lighted tennis court, a two-tiered trophy room, two offices, a library, game room, media room, seven fireplaces and seven custom chandeliers imported from Prague. Outside there's a waterfall pool, lighted tennis courts and sprawling grounds set with fruit trees.
