Editor's Note: Houston and the surrounding areas are loaded with must-have houses for sale in all shapes, sizes and price ranges. In this continuing series, CultureMap snoops through some of the best and gives you the lowdown on what's hot on the market.

A former NBA star has put his stunning waterfront mansion on Lake Conroe up for sale. It's located an hour away from the night lights and daytime attractions of Houston — in a world of its own.

The owner of this grand residence — the No. 2 overall pick in an NBA Draft — is much like his secluded home: He prefers to remain private.

Walk Through

Nestled between the lush Sam Houston National Forest and Lake Conroe in the exclusive gated Bentwater subdivision, the Mediterranean-style getaway of stucco and stone construction and tiled roof offers five to six bedrooms, five full baths and four half-baths. The grand entryway welcomes all to a two-story-tall first floor with formal living room and dining room on imported stone flooring. The well-appointed study also features a ceiling two stories high. All these rooms bask in natural light— and scenic vistas — via oversized windows.

The master bedroom and bath sit on the first floor, with upstairs bedrooms complete with hardwood floors, built-ins and private balcony access. A state-of-the-art media room with surround sound, a game room and second family room with large windows framing the lush surroundings outdoors are at your beck and call. 

Entertaining is a snap in the chef-quality kitchen with open den arrangement. Deck entrances are readily at hand on both floors. Outside leisure and activities await with the innumerable luxury amenities available.

Step Outside
The large outdoor living area is perfect for gatherings with its wood-paneled ceiling, fireplace and summer kitchen with al fresco dining. A hot tub and infinity pool invitingly beckon with the lake and forest panorama beyond. Hidden automatic screens secure the space. Below at lake level, another massive deck creates more lounging opportunities.

A boat house and with dock and lift make water sports an easy lifestyle. In addition to the boating options, Grand Pines Golf Course memberships are available to the owners. 

Square footage: 8,581 square feet on a 13,856 lot

Asking price: $2.275 million

Listing agent: Tim Surratt, Greenwood King Properties
