Are you looking for a massive estate in Houston with a pool complex that will make you stop visiting Vegas, the Caribbean, and any other tropical resort you’ve been to over the last decade? Retired NFL defensive end Mario Williams has just the place you’re looking for, and it’ll cost just $8,450,000.
If you have the money to plunk down on this 13,000 sq. ft. house, there’s a very good chance you’ll be able to do it up right and hire cocktail waitresses, chefs, and support staff to make this place your new vacation destination. Look at that yard. Show me a better pool complex in Houston. Good luck.
From Mario’s realtor Krista Mcgowen with Nextgen Real Estate Properties:
Own a piece of NFL history right here in the heart of Memorial! This resplendent mansion has been home to Mario Williams since he was drafted to the Texans in 2006. Even without its celebrity claim-to-fame, this princely estate would stand out for its incomparable size, elegance and exclusivity.
Sweeping staircases, vaulted ceilings and a palatial floorplan make this a property fit for football royalty, or a family looking for the ultimate in lock-and-leave luxury. Old World charm meets modern convenience: this home comes with top-of-the-line appliances, climate-controlled wine room, 9-car garage and cinema with stadium seating. The Primary retreat includes a 360 dressing room and his/hers custom closets.
Host to many a star-studded party, the stand-out feature is the resort pool complete with swim-up bar, cascading waterfalls, jacuzzi, slide and fire features. A 3rd story flex-space and a self-contained guest apartment offer additional opportunities for work or play.
One thing that’s concerning is the size of that billiards room. Seems a little tight. I’d probably look at blowing out that wall into the theater area that has too much light and creating one massive billiards and party room. The room also needs much more zoned modern LED lighting.
As for the main living area, there are multiple rooms I’d never walk into, but the pool area more than makes up for all the unused space. That said, if I had the money, I wouldn’t turn down Mario’s pad.
Starbucks is just 2.4 miles down the road. Whole Foods is 3.2 miles. Houston Country Club is three miles and Chick fil A is like .9 miles away. In other words, Mario’s going to get his price here. This place is perfectly positioned in the heart of it all.
Mortgage: $29,000 or so a month before you hire crews to take care of the pool and grounds of this hog of a house.
