The 10 Biggest Homes For Sale In Houston Right Now

Feeling a little cramped these days? Sure you are, what with all the stocking up whenever Costco has a sale on baked beans and rice.

Well, an economic downturn is the perfect time to move on up in the real estate world. People who have overextended themselves -- or maybe have become empty-nesters in their 20-room houses -- are eager to sell.

What are the 10 biggest homes available in the Houston area right now? These. (We're not used to browsing the Houston Association of Realtors website for opulent homes -- for any homes, for that matter -- so forgive us if there are bigger manses out there.)

10. 99 Grand Regency Circle, the Woodlands


Bedrooms: Five
Bathrooms: Only five, but three half-baths
Square feet: 13,800
Price: $8.6 million
Sure, this 2009 home is not exactly huge, per se -- Reliant Stadium is much bigger, for instance -- but think of all the enjoyable hours you can spend looking at these drapes while working out.

9. 11095 Memorial Drive, Piney Point Village


Bedrooms: Eight
Bathrooms: Seven and two half-baths
Square footage: 14,006
Price: $5,399,000
See over there? That's where Jeff Bagwell parked one into the upper level! Who says the Dome isn't being used?

8. 1700 Parkwood Avenue, Friendswood

Bedrooms: Five
Bathrooms: Five and four half-baths
Square footage: 15,038
Price:$3,495,000
This little shed is called the White House Ranch, but don't worry -- We're sure there aren't any socialist Muslims in this exclusive neighborhood!

7. 5110 Newpoint Drive, Fresno

Bedrooms: Seven
Bathrooms: Eight and three half-baths
Indoor basketball courts: Just the one, we're afraid
Square footage: 15,446
Price: $3.2 million
What, your home doesn't have an air-conditioned indoor basketball court? Times are tough, we guess.

6. 1315 Moody Ave (21st St) Galveston

Bedrooms: Five
Bathrooms: Seven
Square footage: 15,696
Price: $1,479,500
Over 100 years old, zoned for residential or commercial use. Sounds like it might be a long walk to a bathroom from some places, though. Best feature, according to the listing: "Very minor damage during IKE."

5. 19544 Sandcastle, Spicewood

Bedrooms: Seven
Bathrooms: Nine and five half-baths
Square footage: 16,173
Price: $12,750,00
Handyman's Special!!

4. 3102 Noble Lakes Lane, Houston

Bedrooms: Five
Bathrooms: Six and four half-baths
Square footage: 16, 801 (Note: includes bowling lanes)
Price: $4,150,000
If you have trouble with the mortgage, you can always jack up the price for shoe rental.

3. 21 Grand Manor, Sugar Land

Bedrooms: Six
Bathrooms: Eight and two half-baths
Square footage: 18,094
Price: $11 million
We think the address is 21 Grand Manor, because apparently $11 mil doesn't buy you vowels -- the listing has it as "21 Grand Mnr." All we can say is at last we are over the 18,000 -square foot mark. Now we've got some room to stretch out. On very ugly bar chairs.

2. 31 W. Rivercrest, Houston


Bedrooms:

Eight


Bathrooms:

Nine and two half-baths


Square footage:

23,090


Price:

$3.5 million


That may look like just any other library, but take a gander at the all-caps description from the listing: "2 STORY LIBRARY DONE IN MAGHONEY AND THIS IS THE FIRST FLOOR." You can't get maghoney like this just anywhere.



1. 11682 Arrowhead Circle, Houston

Bedrooms: Eight
Bathrooms: 10 and three half-baths
Square footage: 26,214
Price: $7.989,500
The thing is, this photo shows the Little Kid's Table. We don't have room to show where the Big Kids eat.
