Stunning, New Orleans-like Woodlands mansion listed at $3.2 million

With a back courtyard that looks like something out of the French Quarter, this Woodlands mansion for sale can easily make its owners forget they're in the heart of suburbia.

A large, covered patio space wraps around a pair of fountains, and the second-floor balconies of this double-gallery home offer an alternative view. And, if that's not enough space to entertain, the home also has a swimming pool overlooking the Carlton Woods Tom Fazio golf course.

This home was built in 2010, and the neighborhood has a maintenance fee of $4,350 annually, according to the listing.
