Welcome to the Emerald Lake Estate. This beautiful 185-acre private and gated estate is located in Magnolia, Texas, approximately 40 miles northwest of Houston. It is the largest tract of land inside the upscale 3,500-acre High Meadow Ranch (HMR) subdivision which is home to an exclusive golfing and equestrian community. This uniquely developed estate includes the centerpiece 25-acre Emerald Lake, a 9-acre Japanese garden, a 7-acre botanical (azalea) garden with over 5,000 azaleas, as well as an estate house, guest house, boat house, multiple gazebos, 21 bridges in all shapes and sizes and miles of walking trails!
Over the past 15 years, David and Rondi Weber have taken this pristine wooded landscape and sculpted it into one of the most unique properties in all of Texas! There’s absolutely nothing like it ANYWHERE in the Houston, Dallas or San Antonio markets. Boating, fishing, golfing, camping, hiking, horseback riding, nature watching, gardening and much more…it’s all here… in your own backyard!
With the planting of over 20,000 trees, shrubs and flowers through the years, they have transformed the property into a veritable paradise with a resort-like ambience. In fact, each spring the Weber’s open their gates for the annual “Azalea Walk” event to the local community and numerous garden clubs. Guests can walk the mile long trail and view this eclectic mix of exotic flora brought in from all over the United States. The colors in the spring are absolutely breathtaking!
Privacy has always been an objective and only about 90 acres have been fully developed, including the lake and various gardens, leaving most of the perimeter in its natural forested state. And, there’s still an abundance of space in its natural state for developing new areas.
“The canvas is still large enough to paint your own picture,” says owner David Weber, “And even though Rondi and I have decided it’s time to downsize and simplify our lives, there’s still a lot of opportunity to take things to the next level. I’m excited for the new owners to have their own once-in-a-lifetime experience.”
If you can envision yourself living on one of the most exclusive and unequaled pieces of property in the southern United States, we invite you to experience this little piece of paradise right here in Magnolia, Texas. It just may surpass your wildest dreams!
