About the property

4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath Home With Pool, Boat Docks, Lots Of Parking

Whether seeking a respite from the hectic pace of city life or busy job; looking for a family friendly gathering place for a long weekend or week; girls trip to catch up or guy's/couples golf outing, this is the home for you.

The home has spectacular views of the lake from any room and offers both indoor and outdoor living.

As you pull up to the house and into the large driveway for multi car parking, you will immediately transition to the casual and relaxed environment that the lake provides. Enter through the front stairs to a split staircase leading to the upper living areas or the lower bedrooms. New tile has been installed throughout the house and showers remodeled with new tile and fixtures. In November 2014, all the windows in the house were replaced to provide better energy efficiency and allow windows to open to enjoy the breeze in spring and fall while maintaining the spectacular views. In 2017, all the wood was removed and replaced on the exterior, and a new upper deck, railings and staircase were added for outdoor entertainment.

The upstairs has a fully equipped kitchen to allow for cooking meals if not enjoying one of the fun restaurants around the lake. Included are service for 12, beverage glasses, microwave, coffee maker, oven, cooking utensils and cookware, granite counters and a large storage pantry to help manage space. First aid kit and fire extinguishers and provided to ensure a safe stay for our guests. Sit at the bar adjoining the kitchen to keep each other company while preparing meals, snacks and beverages.

Adjoining the kitchen is a dining area with table for 10, buffet . The dining room opens to the living area complete with leather sofas, club chairs and flat screen TV with cable access to your favorite sports programs, movies, news and regular programming. The wall of windows offer constant views of the lake. Exit the door to enjoy the upper deck with two tables and chairs for 10, plus a club chair and ottoman to curl up with your book. The new gas grill offers alternatives to indoor cooking....did you say hamburgers, steak or grilled fish?

In the corner of the upstairs is the master bedroom and bath. Again, the wall of windows provides breathtaking views from the queen size bed. A TV hidden in the wall of storage cabinets also houses extra essentials of blankets, pillows, etc. The master bath is newly remodeled with new tile shower and new fixtures.

A half bath is located at the top of the stairs for convenience and accessibility to guests on the upper floors.

Heading downstairs offers 3 bedrooms with lots of sleeping space for many. Separate into families, kids vs. adults or any configuration that meets your needs. Regardless of which room you select, each has a wall of windows overlooking the pool and private door to the outdoors so no need to interrupt sleeping friends.

Just outside the first bedroom is a full bath with shower / tub combination and fresh new towels. A full washer and dryer are also available downstairs for guest use.

The bedroom to the left offers a queen bed and twin bunk beds, all with fresh new bedding and linens. Built in cabinets offer plenty of storage.

The middle bedroom offers a queen size bed plus a small sleeper sofa and ottoman, along with plenty of built in cabinets. Again, all new bedding makes for a fresh and restful environment.

The third and largest room downstairs serves both as a bedroom and a gathering / game room, complete with a full / twin bunk bed combination and a Lazy Boy Sleep Aire Queen Sofa bed. A lounge chair and ottoman offer a quiet reading spot. The large round game table and chairs are perfect for a friendly game of cards, putting together a weekend puzzle or enjoying board games. A TV with Cable is located in the large wall of cabinet storage. A separate bathroom and shower room are located within this bedroom.

Step out from any downstairs bedroom or come down the stairs from the top deck to enjoy the lower deck with seating, lounging and of course the pool with a basketball goal for entertaining games. The pool is a game pool depth of 4 feet with stair entrance from both ends. The spa adjoins the pool for cooler nights entertainment.

Just beyond the pool is a large 2 slip boat dock for boats and jet skis, swim platform with steps and ladders into the lake. Perfect for floating in the water, tubing, waterskiing, paddle boarding, canoeing and of course fishing. Enjoy the decking for watching the spectacular sunsets, late night story telling or sleep under the stars!

Amenities at Walden include the fitness center with its daily classes for every fitness level, friendly tennis games on the Walden courts. Golf at Walden Golf Course just a short 3 miles from the house. Although there is the pool at the house, you can also try the large pool at Walden's Yacht Club complete with kiddie pool and cabanas that offer a different view of the lake. Walden Yacht Club offers casual dining, a special wine room, and pool side snacks / meals.

Spring, summer, fall or winter, the lake is a perfect place to be. Even sitting on the deck in a rain shower can be perfect. If you find you want to explore beyond the lake, there are many activities in the surrounding communities. Montgomery offers antiques, wineries, exploring history while Conroe and The Woodlands offer a wide variety of well know stores and restaurants along with the Woodlands Waterway and concerts at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion.

About Rick and Jane Jones

Rick and Jane Jones are not strangers to Lake Conroe. Before purchasing another home that they have enjoyed since 2002, they boated in the area for years before that. Rick opened Dockside Marine dealership on Hwy. 105 and subsequently sold in 2008. With 30 years in the boating industry, Rick is extensively educated about the water, boats, jet skis and lake living. Jane retired in 2012 from a large corporation and decided a great project would be the addition of a new property to help others experience the wonders of living on the lake.

Rick and Jane Jones purchased this house in 2013

Why Rick and Jane Jones chose Walden on Lake Conroe

This property was a perfect addition for us because it belonged to our neighbors of 11 years. When they first considered selling the property, there were 8 calls the first day! The owners wanted us to buy knowing the care we would give the property and the enhancements we would make to it. They were right; we have enhanced the property which will make your stay more enjoyable. We are frequently next door so any issues can be addressed quickly and to your satisfaction.

What makes this house unique

As we have prepared to have guests, we would sit on the upper deck to experience the views, cooked in the kitchen to ensure all essentials were provided, slept on the beds to ensure they were comfortable and yes....enjoyed the pool. In addition to the all new tile and new paint, we had new insulation blown into the attic to ensure comfort regardless of the outside weather.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

It was a hot but beautiful weekend so the pool kept us refreshed. We rented jet skis at the very close marina and that was fun for everybody! This part of the lake is pretty quiet and not many water vehicles, even for a Saturday, which was nice. The house layout was perfect for our family. Everyone had their own bedroom and bathroom. Loved the master suite and hopefully, we can make this our annual family summer getaway!

Our returning guests are our favorites and we try to have new improvements annually to upgrade the house to make it perfect for a relaxing time away. Hope to see you again!
