Complete with Trophy Room and Indoor Basketball Court, Kingwood Manse Hits the Market

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.

Dana Olejniczak of Martha Turner Sotheby's International Realty has the listing.

And although all of the cocktails on the refreshingly low alcohol content menu are spirit-free — think cocktails crafted from fortified wines, aperitifs and exotic beers instead of the usual, throw-your-afternoon-off-track fare — the spirited menu is bold in both vision and flavor.
