If you're in the market for a completely furnished mansion overlooking one of the area's most prestigious golf courses and complete with an Enron-style boardroom, then this compound is for you. The manse at 15 Grand Regency Circle in The Woodlands is now listed at a cool $14 million.
The 17,000-square-foot estate is known as The Wing Mansion, named after its last owner John Wing, who managed the former Teesside Power Station in England, one of many profitable deals he handled for Enron during his time with the infamous company from the early 1980s to 1991.
The two-story Mediterranean-style residence sits on an 82,373-square-foot lot just off the ninth hole of the Carlton Woods’ Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course and also has views of the 18th hole. The stunning home offers the amenities of a fine resort, including a guest house, golf house and more than 3,000 square feet of comfortable and manicured outdoor living spaces. Formals inside are luxuriously appointed, and six bedrooms as well as nine full and three half-baths also await.
