Local real estate: What $4 million gets you in The Woodlands vs. Crestwood


HOUSTON – Here, we compare two Houston-area homes with the same price tag — one in the Houston city limits and one outside.

This go-around, we pit a contemporary Crestwood home in Houston against a golf course-adjacent traditional in The Woodlands. Each offer up luxury living, and only ask $3,995,000 for the trouble.

One option offers a refined escape from the hustle and bustle of city living. The other offers a prime patch of modern real estate minutes from downtown Houston. What home is worth the price to you?
