If you are looking to buy a full-blown estate in which you may or may not ever need to leave home in order to enjoy all of life's luxuries, here it is. This home has 7 bedrooms, 7 full bathrooms, and measures in at 17,902 sq. ft. And while that might seem way too big, it takes a lot of space to house a movie theater, workout center, gourmet kitchen, game room, and multiple offices. A private elevator whisks its inhabitants from floor to floor. As if anyone who lives in a house like this would ever dream of having it any other way? This home is for the lover of an opulent abode rid of modern touches and flushed with fabulous collectibles from past and present. Some of the extravagant extras found at this property include splashing fountains modeled after the pastoral French countryside and Paris, a 30--foot ceiling with a hand-blown Venetian chandelier, and a hand-painted mural by Dallas artist Penny Graham. The extreme elegance spills out onto the outdoor living area which has a sparkling, saltwater diving pool and spa. There is a cabana with a wood-burning fireplace, built--in grill, refrigerator, and sink to prepare and host any meal outdoors. The Wall Street Journal named it one of their prestigious "Homes of the Year" and we can't help but think the lush gardens, peaceful courtyards, and pristine landscaping had something to do with putting this palace on that list. This home is located just 15 minutes from DFW Airport, 30 minutes from downtown Fort Worth, and 40 minutes from downtown Dallas. If you are in the market for an extremely luxurious property with literally every bell and whistle under the sun, welcome to your new Colleyville chateau.
