If the opulence of Versailles makes your heart aflutter, then catch an eyeful of this magnificent French-inspired estate on Lake Ray Hubbard in Heath, Texas. Seated on 2.5-lushly-landscaped-acres, with 440-feet of westward facing lakefront, it’s a palatial gem and one of the most desirable homes on the lake.
Listing agent Carla Perez of the Carla Perez Group at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty tells us: “The only limit to the property is your imagination. Helicopter pad, anyone? Here you have County Club amenities without having to pay membership dues. It has a pool, tennis courts, complete workout facilities, guest quarters – the equivalent of prime Dallas oceanfront property.”
To sweeten the deal, it’s also an original homeowner listing, which was custom built from the ground up with the highest attention to detail. This includes hand-selected finishes from around the world, such as imported limestone and centuries-old French doors.
“There is a Zen-like tranquility where one can shutout the outside world to reconnect and recharge,” says Perez. “This is perfect for the boating enthusiast who wants to tie their boat on their own property or a newly retired executive who recently cashed out of the corporate rat race.”
And the 8,119-square-foot chateau exudes craftsmanship and luxury at every turn. Interiors are dripping with designer detail. From intricate moldings and scrolled iron railings to sleek tile floors and walls of picture windows, it’s a veritable feast for the senses.
Towering columns, soaring ceilings, custom millwork, a gourmet kitchen, game room, and elegant master are among the highlights. Impressive amenities range from a 50-foot saltwater pool with Pennsylvania bluestone decking to a richly appointed guest house and 1,200-bottle underground wine cellar.
“This chateau combines Old World elegance and modern luxury in a one-of-a-kind property less than 30-minutes from Downtown Dallas,” Perez adds. “Property values are still appreciating and for one seeking a sound investment and for an iconic home that still represents an investment, this is your ticket.”
