Though you're on your private estate on a gated island in an already-gated community and seem a million miles away, the tranquility is here when you want it yet you're only about a half hour from all the dining, shopping and world-class medical facility amenities of The Woodlands. You're also only an hour from Houston International Airport with quick and easy access to the rest of the world. But, then, why would you ever want to leave here? Hmmm.
Though you're on your private estate on a gated island in an already-gated community and seem a million miles away, the tranquility is here when you want it yet you're only about a half hour from all the dining, shopping and world-class medical facility amenities of The Woodlands.  You're also only an hour from Houston International Airport with quick and easy access to the rest of the world.  But, then, why would you ever want to leave here?  Hmmm. Located on the gated island of Benthaven Isle which is within the gated country club community of Bentwater on Lake Conroe, this Spanish style mansion enjoys spectacular 270 degree open water views.  Let's take an aerial view to allow you to see how the home sits on a bit of a point which provides great privacy on either side. As you walk out on the lawn from the summer kitchen, this is the view back to the pool deck. As we begin to lift off, you can see how the circular drive feeds the entry into the motor courtyard.  At the very left is a one-car garage with covered walkway into the home.  This garage can actually accommodate two cars or one car and a golf cart.  Further into the courtyard is another two-car garage with direct access into the home. As we get higher, you can see the "point" described earlier and truly get an appreciation for the sprawling open water views.  The pool also begins to be visible.  So, let's take a look from the lake looking back. You've just come through the front door and are in the entry foyer.  Note how the arches in the design feed right in to the groin ceiling, a feature you'll see elsewhere in this home.  Directly behind you is additional entry space that leads you to the family room. But, as you turn around, your eye is immediately drawn through the family room to the open waters of Lake Conroe. You're literally standing in one of the two double doors that opens from the family room onto this elegant entertainment space and the pool beyond...and the lake beyond the pool.  One of a kind setting... Before exploring the interior, here's a quick look at your lakeside pool.  At approximately 50 feet in length and 20 feet in width, your saltwater oasis features a spa at the far end and an infinity edge facing Lake Conroe.  We'll be back to later.  Let's go see what's inside. We're back at the circular drive and approaching the front entry vestibule.  The artistry of the front door begins to give you a hint of what you'll see inside. As you walk back through that same double door, your family room opens before you.  The 15 foot ceilings somewhat hide the size of this room.  Notice that there's a baby grand piano at the far end.  The kitchen is to the right and the formal dining area is at the far end.  We'll see those up close shortly. As we begin to enter the family room, the scale of the home is beginning to become more apparent. The arched doorway in the background is where you went outside earlier.  The smaller arched entry to the right of that exterior door leads to the master suite.  The larger arched entry to the right leads to your study, an additional first floor suite, and an elegant powder room. Turn around and you're looking into the formal dining area.  Notice the architectural consistency of the arches and the groin ceiling. The doors to the right open to reveal your spacious, climate-controlled wine room. Your climate-controlled wine room will accommodate approximately 40 cases of your favorite vino, and it's all steps away from the dining table to easily serve your guests...and, of course, yourself. We're now in the master suite which features a spacious seating area overlooking the pool deck in one direction and Lake Conroe in the other.  The double doors lead to your master bath. As we step toward the entry to the master bath, which is not directly behind you, the views become obvious. As we look back toward the entry to the master suite, pay particular attention to the vaulted ceiling and the beams that carry through from the family room. Turn around and take a few steps, and you're now in the master bath area, and it is an area that's approximately 40 feet long not including the closed which is through the door seen here at the end. From the other end of the master bath, you're looking back toward the walk-in shower which is of a "snail" design which offers exceptional space and complete privacy.  It's a feature you'll see throughout the home in other baths. Turn around and you're now in the master closet which has two separate aisles for hanging clothes separated by elaborate built-ins. You've now moved to the other end of the family room, somewhat adjacent to the entry foyer.  You cross a wide vestibule and enter your study. Another angle of the study.  Through the door on the left is a workspace that houses your printer, files and books. And this angle shows you the proximity to the family room as seen through the vestibule.  Notice the continuation of the arched design, even in the woodwork.  As you exit the study and turn right, you enter the powder room. ...and here is a close-up of that powder room, complete with hand painted mural walls. On the other side of the study is the first floor guest suite with windows overlooking the fountain in the middle of the circular drive. The first floor guest suite bath continues the old-world look and feel with with hand-painted sinks.  This completes the tour of this wing of the home. Now let's go explore the kitchen area. Artisan tile flooring continues throughout, as do the arched entryways. Brilliant lighting over the cooktop highlights the intricate tile work of the backsplash.  Six burner stove complete with pot-filler water source. Step in a little further and you can see how the kitchen opens to the family room, though it does so without being part of the family room.  Elegant design. The chef's perspective is exceptional. Now from the far end of the kitchen looking back at the informal dining area.  Notice the under-counter stools that allow the island to also serve as a breakfast bar or, perhaps better yet, a great place to hang out with a glass of wine and keep the chef company. A closer look at the informal dining area reveals direct access to the pool deck and impressive open water views of Lake Conroe beyond.  Let's now turn left and proceed down the corridor to the first-floor game room/media room. As you first enter the media area of the game room, you have a wet bar to your right and then you move to the far end where you have a full size pool table and a card/game table. Ample space for multiple activities all at once.  Directly behind you is access to the pool deck and, to your right, is an outdoor dining area with the summer kitchen beyond. As you look back toward the entry, the tile work of the wet bar captures your attention.  Artisan craftsmanship runs throughout this home, and this is yet another example of the exquisite finishes you'll enjoy. Just outside the game room is another full bath which also has direct access to the pool deck. Here again, notice the incredible tile work and artisan finishes.  Okay, we've spent a lot of time downstairs, and there's lots to also explore upstairs.  Let's take a look... The first guest suite upstairs overlooks the pool deck and Lake Conroe, has a full bath and, as you can see, is large enough to accommodate two queen size beds with room to spare.  And this room has a very special space accessible through a short passageway, which is behind you to the right. If you've always wanted your own production stage, here it is complete with lights, riser and curtains.  Full size mirrors cover one wall to help you practice your dance steps. As you can see in the reflection, there's even a hanging bar for wardrobe changes.  Not into acting and dancing?  This space would also make an exceptional media room.  It's good to have choices... Upper guest suite number two also features a private bath and, no surprise, also overlooks the pool and Lake Conroe. The third upper guest bedroom (and fifth over all) is configured to sleep six.  Whether pretending you're traveling on the Orient Express or the catching a little sleep in the bunkhouse before heading out on the range, this unique space awaits your imagination. Just down from the "bunk" room is your fully-equipped workout room, complete with dry sauna.  Directly behind you is a large window overlooking Lake Conroe. You've been in a sauna before so you know what this is looks like.  We just wanted to prove we weren't kidding. After your workout, a little sunbathing on the upper deck might be in order.  Or, there's a stairway directly behind you that leads to the pool.  More choices...and spectacular views. ...and when the sun begins to set, those spectacular views only get better. At the far end of the pool, the chimney in the background is on that deck where you just were.  This is also a great look at the infinity edge of your pool. Your spa is directly to your left.  The family room is through the double arches. Once again, when the sun begins to set everything takes on a more mellow feel.  Obviously, this pool deck will serve you well morning, noon and night.  At the far end past the white chaise lounges is the outside dining area and the summer kitchen. Yes, even the summer kitchen has spectacular open water views. We're now behind the home hovering over the open waters of Lake Conroe.  To begin to give you some perspective, the master bedroom is to the farthest left in this picture.   We'll get a close up look at that in just a moment.  But, first, let's go inside. For the few who have earned this lifestyle, welcome home.
