Looking for a little taste of Europe in Big D?
This house, designed to look like a French country home, sits on just more than eight-tenths of an acre north of downtown Dallas. Built in 2003, it has wide-plank oak floors, 11-foot ceilings and six fireplaces, says Mary Poss, sales associate with Ebby Halliday Realtors.
Even with six bedrooms, six bathrooms, two powder rooms and more than 10,000 square feet, "it's very warm and comfortable," she says. "The layout is terrific."
The castle-size kitchen has wood-beam ceilings, stone floors and granite counters with an oversized range and two side-by-side ovens.
The master suite has a glassed-in sitting area and an adjoining room for a library or nursery, she says. The master bathroom, which has a steam shower and marble tub, features a stained-glass window.
The home is also built for fun. It has two game rooms, a movie theater and a butler's pantry with a full wet bar, Poss says. A covered terrace overlooks a backyard with gardens, plus a pool with a cabana that includes a separate apartment, exercise room and party room, she says.
The gated home also has a four-car garage.
