Just last week, news of another Southlake castle hitting the market dropped, and gained some traction thousands of miles away. Vox Media's Curbed.com featured the $4,990,000 gem last Wednesday. Then, the Houston Chronicle followed up, highlighting the 12,531-square-foot beast.
According to the Realtor.com listing...
"Castle-style w-ornate wooden craftsmanship. Iron doors lead into spacious entry w-curved stairways & elegant dome ceiling. Open floor plan w-multiple living areas, media room, oversized 4-car garage w- full kitchen & outdoor areas. Gourmet kitchen w-full amenities & walk-in prep pantry. Lavish bedrooms & opulent master w- attached sitting room & bath containing his and her space, grand shower w-turret-style ceiling & centralized jetted tub."
The European-inspired mansion features 6 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms, 2 partial baths, and was built in 2007. The building sits on a 7.93-acre lot within Carroll ISD.
If you can afford to put down 20 percent on the house (just under $1 million), then your 30-year mortgage at today's going rate of 3.95 percent would average a bill of almost $32,000 per month.
Comments were not favorable between the two articles featuring the listing, with a few of the complaints mentioning the property's lack of a pool.
