A nearly 20,000-square-foot castle-like mansion in Texas, complete with 12 turrets and hidden rooms, hit the market this week for $5 million.
Located in Southlake, Texas, about 30 miles northwest of Dallas, the residence boasts a flowing open floor plan, a 1,300-square-foot space to display cars and another room of the same size that could serve an office for a home-based business or a fitness center, according to listing agent Roxann Taylor of Engel & Völkers Dallas Southlake.
“The first floor has an open floor plan where all the rooms open to each other,” she said. “It flows so well and makes it very light and bright.”
Built in 2007, the home boasts eight bedrooms and eight full bathrooms, as well as details such as coffered ceilings, cathedral windows, custom cabinetry, hand-carved moldings and ornate fireplaces, according to the listing. The main level has an eat-in kitchen with a separate pantry and several reception areas.
Upstairs, the primary bedroom suite features a sitting area, two showers and two water closets on either side of a soaking tub, plus “insane” walk-in closets, Ms. Taylor noted.
