THE WOODLANDS, TX – (June 12, 2008) – Sales to date this year are brisk in the premier, gated community of Carlton Woods in The Woodlands, according to Andrew Whitacre, managing partner/broker of Carlton Woods Properties. A total of 23 homes have sold in the past six months, at an average sales price of $1.5 million, compared to a total of 29 sold in all of 2007. Eight homesites, at an average price of $475,000, have sold in the past three months, according to Whitacre.
“The economic factors that are impacting buyers in other markets and price points are not impacting our buyers,” Whitacre said. “Most of our buyers have been able to sell their homes in other states, so they have the capital to reinvest when they move to Carlton Woods. We are seeing an influx of buyers with extended families who are building ‘family clubhouses’ – large estate homes with custom amenities like swimming pools, electronic game rooms, and open floor plans that flow from indoors to outdoors - that bring the generations together. Combined with the country club lifestyle available to members of The Club at Carlton Woods, this creates a quality of life that is unparalleled in Texas.”
Carlton Woods is one of only two private clubs in the country to feature a Signature golf course by Jack Nicklaus and a championship course designed by Tom Fazio. Carlton Woods consists of two gated communities – the 827-acre Carlton Woods surrounding the Nicklaus course, and the 500-acre community of Carlton Woods Creekside where the Fazio course is located.
The 53,000-square-foot Nicklaus clubhouse, featuring Italianate architecture, offers a mixed grill and fine dining restaurants, wine room with cigar terrace and private dining rooms. Other amenities include fully appointed men’s, women’s and junior locker rooms with club storage, plus a 5,000-square-foot health and fitness center. A separate fitness/tennis center, swimming pool and state-of-the-art golf house are also located at Carlton Woods.
The 13,500-square-foot clubhouse at Carlton Woods Creekside includes a 6,000-square-foot cart barn arranged around a Village Square on a hillcrest overlooking the Fazio golf course. With a more rustic Tuscan ambiance, the Fazio clubhouse features dining, a fitness facility, golf shop, and men’s and ladies’ locker rooms. A back patio with waterfalls, a firepit and a fireplace overlooks the finishing hole of the Fazio course.
