Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

Luxurious lakehouse retreat located on Lake Conroe in the popular Walden on Lake Conroe subdivision. Relax and enjoy life in the privacy of a luxurious custom built Mediterranean home with plastered walls and wrought iron accents, privately situated on the end of a cove on Lake Conroe. This home has a new 15' x 27' water deck, 2 boat slips, and a cabana equipped with stereo and lights situated on the lake, a lanai the width of the house with 16 foot table and 8 piece sectional, 2 wood burning fireplaces, a downstairs family room, a media room upstairs (both with flatscreen TVs equipped with DirectTV's NFL Ticket), karaoke with lyric screen and two microphones and foosball, a 'secret, hidden' children's room equipped with additional tv and toys, gas grill located under the lanai, an upper balcony the width of the house and a private gate access to a large green space for enjoying a friendly game of football.

Surrounding the home, and available to you free of charge at the Walden Yacht Club are two gorgeous pools and a playground for the kids, a convenient snack bar cabana for food and drinks, an elegant dining room for dinner and brunch with gorgeous views of Lake Conroe. There is also a third walk-to pool from the house, Walden Racquet Club with top rated tennis courts and Pros for lessons which include covered courts and Walden Fitness Center for your fitness needs.

This home is located across from Walden's private boat launch and a perfect place for a great family vacation or special gathering with family and friends.

Rent a boat or jet ski from nearby or bring your own boat, fish off of the water deck, play a friendly game of football on the green space next to the house, volleyball or corn toss in the backyard or relax and enjoy the many varieties of wildlife. You will surely witness a variety of wildlife visible from the rear of the home while still having a beautiful view and access to the lake. You or your family and friends can safely swim 400 feet without the danger of an out of control jet ski or speeding boat.

We allow our responsible adults to use the four seater golf cart to get around Walden on Lake Conroe and enjoy the amenities at a leisurely pace or just drive to see the many deer throughout the neighborhood.

This home is close to a large variety of restaurants and shops, many accessible by water, and only 15 miles north of The Woodlands.

We will not consider weddings, receptions, bachelor parties or prom events.

We also offer a 2 night minimum WEEKDAY ONLY Peak Season

Texas Renaissance Festival is a short drive.

Why Denise Senules chose Walden on Lake Conroe

We bought this property in 2008 when we learned that the house we admired while playing a family game of football on the green space next to the house had become available. The home had such great curb appeal. Someone had spent a lot of time and money showcasing it with the grand fountain, circular drive and lush landscaping with imported stones.

We were delighted when we discovered the home has an underground wine cellar, which we use as a wine tasting room, stone arched accent walls that match the stones used in the landscaping and the general quality of construction.

The setting looked idyllic for undisturbed fishing off the water deck and the unusually large backyard with cabana and lanai for large gatherings with family and friends.

We bought the property for getaways, so upkeep was an issue, and were delighted when learned of an additional smaller pool than the Yacht Club was only a few houses down the street and only available for our section of Walden on Lake Conroe.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefits of this lake house is the beautiful architecture and idyllic location.

The home is very welcoming with its terra-cotta roof tiles and large trickling fountain with circular drive upon arrival. No need to use a photo of the outdoors for the thumbprint because of embarrassing curb appeal.

The home has a downstairs family room which opens to the large lanai and the dining room has an adjoining gathering room for relaxing and visiting in cushy chairs after dinner. The upstairs has both a media room with surround sound, foosball and karaoke for the bigger kids and adults and an additional "secret hidden" kid's room with tv, games, dress up and chalkboard with a sofa for the kid's. It's a big hit for an extra sleeping area for the little ones and teen agers.

The house has a large green space which we use for a friendly game of football on one side and an empty tree shaded lot on the other side.

The home is at the end of a cove, which looks idyllic and is across the water from a private boat launch. Because watercraft is launched before reaching our property, guests can swim 400 down the lake without worrying about a speeding and out of control boat or jet ski running you over. Great fishing off of the very large water deck with beautiful views of the lake. There are two boat slips to dock a boat or jet ski. View constant wildlife such as deer, blue herons, eagles and ducks.

The backyard is very large for a waterfront property. We take advantage of this with a game of volleyball, corn toss and setting up a waterslide for the kiddos while we relax and grill under the large lanai and cabana.

This property is privy to an additional pool which is about five houses down the street if you wanted to take a quick dip instead of visiting the Yacht Club pools. It's the best of both worlds and we hope you enjoy it as much as our family and friends have enjoyed it over the past ten years.

Good getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The location is pretty good, water front and quiet neighborhood. You can do all kinds of activities there. Good for families gathering or getaway. This property has plenty of space that two or even three families can stay comfortably. The property owner is an honest and kind person. She sent our Nikon camera package back by FedEx after I forgot and left it there for two weeks!

Property has a lot of potential, yet not maintained very well

  • 2 of 5

Good location on the lake & enough space for the entire family. Lots of little things can be done to make this property great again. Replace burned out lights, replace/fix bikes for use in garage, replace golf cart batteries so it can be used for more than a few minutes, clean out shed by the lake & items for use in it (appears that it flooded & inside was moldy & dirty), clean off porch & remove items for fishing that are no longer viable, remove/reduce clutter in the garage, check/update heat pump, remove/reduce clutter in kitchen draws, update activity/information book in house (last updated in 2008), disclose that swimming pool for use is under repair & not able to use it during our stay.

Owner's Response: I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the house and its location. We believe the house is very well maintained and have strived to make it a five star experience for ten years. Please understand, we leave extra supplies like fishing poles, five beach cruiser bikes, golf cart, etc. at the house to make your stay an even more fun-filled experience. We leave a tackle box, battery charger, air pump, etc. at the house for your convenience and believe guests understand that it is not feasible for us to hire someone to hook the fishing poles, check the air in the tires, etc. after each guest. You never mentioned a pool closure to me and am unaware of any. It was probably a very short term event. There are two locations for pools available to you for this property and I would have been happy to remind you of this had you contacted me.
