Editor's Note: Houston, the surrounding areas and beyond 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.

With an expected 10,000 new employees moving to the major Exxon Mobil corporate campus near The Woodlands in 2015, a little gem of a house with a backyard oasis is sure to go fast — especially at the listing price of $300,000.

Walk through

The quaint single-family house sits at the end of a cul-de-sac on a one-block street, affording owners peace and quiet under towering pine trees. The back of the property is just across Lake Woodlands Drive from the award-winning Palmer Course of The Woodlands Country Club.

Enter into the large, open main room with hardwood floors and center contemporary fireplace serving as an architecturally interesting divider between the living area and dining room. The kitchen features an artisan backsplash, under counter lighting, pass-through snack bar and moveable island in the middle.

The breakfast nook at the end of the kitchen takes in views of the backyard via oversized windows. In fact, the backyard is visible from the kitchen, living and dining rooms and all three bedrooms in the house, thanks to multiple double-paned windows.

Hardwood floors continue into the master bedroom and lead to French doors taking owners to a private deck. Double sinks and a huge double shower with bench are highlights of the master bath. The other two bedrooms, each with walk-in closets, share a second bath with clawfoot tub and vessel sink.

Step outside
The backyard is truly a retreat with natural-style swimming pool, hot tub and spa, waterfalls, bridge to a garden escape and sandy beach. A path off the patio takes you into a wooded wonderland with four-hole putting green, sand trap and chipping area. Outdoor seating is spread throughout the yard, offering a new owner many places to enjoy the outdoors.

The brick-and-wood house comes with a two-car attached garage on the 15,240-square-foot lot.

Square footage: 1,800

Asking price: $300,000
