closet (and home) for sale
Texas women — and indeed, the country — have gone wild over the closet that is nestled in a Houston-area mansion — a three-level affair, complete with a bar in the sitting area and space for hundreds of designer shoes and a Birkin bag collection. Oh, and it even boasts a spiral staircase.
It is a closet of such opulence, rapper Gucci Maine shot his video for “Nonchalant” in the massive estate. The home received more national attention when burglars made off with nearly $1 million worth of expensive goods.
Now, however, socialite Theresa Roemer (who calls the closet her “she-cave”) and her oil executive husband, Lamar, have their Carlton Woods manse on the market. The 17,315-foot home is a stunning declaration of elegance, with a sweeping front lawn, resort-style views, and over-the-top details.
“It’s a gorgeous open floor plan,” gushes Claudia Fathivand, a real estate agent with Nan & Company Properties/Christie's International Real Estate, which is handling the sale. “It’s very modern. I really see this as a family house. I really see it as a house with a closet and not a closet with a house.”
Sprawling across two great, green acres overlooking the Nicklaus Course and the Bear Branch Reserve, the home boasts seven bedrooms (with two other rooms that can pull bedroom duty), 10 full and three half baths, a second-floor media room, a ground-level wine room with storage for 250 bottles — and seating to sit and sip them — and an elevator. The massive kitchen with updated appliances is a gathering space, while the butler’s pantry and catering kitchen provide space for party staff to work. “It’s just made for entertaining,” says Fathivand.
Listed at $7 million and completely remodeled in 2013, adopting clean lines and bright neutral tones, 47 Grand Regency Cir. in The Woodlands is a home that screams to be noticed. (This is not the first time the home has hit the market.)
Its rooms meander seamlessly into each other, beginning in the three-story foyer with its $60,000 custom Egyptian crystal chandelier, and brilliantly lit with 25-foot, floor-to-ceiling windows. The master retreat includes a huge seating area and views of the wooded reserve, an indulgent master bath with white tile and a soaking tub — and that closet.
Outside, a lap pool augments the indoor gym to keep you fit, and the multi-level veranda provides lounging space, a fire pit, and a glorious outdoor kitchen.
“There’s such a positive energy to this home,” says Fathivand. “When you step inside, you see that sweeping staircase, you’re surrounded by light and those panoramic views — this is a special place. I can really see a family that loves to entertain or a couple with an extended family loving this space. “
And of course, that closet.
