The old saying goes, “Everything is Bigger in Texas.” The opulence and luxury you’ll find in some of Houston’s finest homes give clear evidence of the truth behind the slogan. These multi-million-dollar mansions have some of the finest amenities available for their super-rich owners, from full-size basketball courts to thousand-gallon aquariums.
A sprawling home in Montgomery County holds a king-sized aquarium that links the den and the formal dining room. The Mediterranean-style mansion in Magnolia also custom woodwork and built-in appliances on the inside, along with beautiful gardens, an outdoor kitchen, and a spa that can hold ten adults around the four-acre lot.
For those who love the water, an opulent residence in Kingwood features views of a serene lake from nearly every window. A large pool and outdoor fountains add comfort, style, and tranquility to the grounds. The home also features an exercise room, a tennis court, and an indoor full-size basketball court.
Another stylish mansion, this one in the Piney Point neighborhood in West Houston, also has some eye-catching water-themed amenities. The resort-style pool has waterfalls and features a winding water slide. The French-style mansion covers nearly two acres and is conveniently located, with the Katy Freeway to the north, the West Belt to the west, the Westpark Tollway to the south, and the West Loop to the east.
The southwest suburbs are home to this sprawling Sugar Land mansion. This 7,500-square-foot palace boasts four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a large pool, and an internal elevator.
One of the most notable features of this Kemah mansion is its views of Galveston Bay. All four bedrooms and the kitchen offer views of the bay. Boat owners can also plan for a boathouse on the property so that they can enjoy the bay firsthand.
