    Realtor.com has the house at $27,500,000.00. For the heck of it I did a little calculation, there were 67 houses for sale in Turtle Creek Texas, this one at $27.5 mil and the 66 other single family houses for under $16,820,000.00 total, for all 66. An average of under $255,000.

      Same here! I think it’s awesome that they’re doing that. Most mega-mansion homeowners like to keep private. I just wish it wasn’t 1,500 miles from where I live =(

    To answer your question, When will it ever sell? Never ever will it ever! Hickory Creek? I can only see this being used as some cult headquarters a la David Koresh/Marshall Applewhite.

    I would be surprised if this house is ever used as a private house. As others are saying, anyone who can afford to pay $27 million for a house doesn’t want to live in that area. Wealthy people like being around other wealthy people, and this area has nothing even close to the size/cost of this house. Nearby there are industrial complexes and subdivisions with tract houses. It’s really just a monument to bad planning, large egos, and bad taste.

    That being said, it would be fascinating to tour it, but I wouldn’t pay $75 to do so.

    I think this is a perfect idea from some of these extremely large homes that can’t sell.
    I am surprised more people don’t do this.

    I dont see why anyone would pay that much… maybe a lil but that much to tour some random ugly big house.

    It’s of no importance or significance. Stupid.

    There is a LOT about this home that I LOVE but also a lot I don’t care for. I would basically take this design and use it as a reference, along with certain other home designs, for creating my own dream home. That big dome on top would be PERFECT for mounting a huge professional-grade telescope for astronomy I think 😀

    One thing the home is missing it seems that I would want in mine are some rooms designed in French Baroque, Louis XIV style. I see some Louis XIV or XV furniture, but no room designed in that style.

    This home was listed at about $60 million, so for $27,500,000, I’d say it’s a steal if one likes it!

    The home really isn’t half price. The current offering includes only about half the land, etc that the $60 million offering had. Both offerings include the monstrosity. It was for shock value more than anything to make the public think it was half price, when really it was just half the offering at half the price.

    The style isn’t French, it’s Texan White Trash.

    To all those who criticize the location, I’ll repeat the words of Darth Vader
    towards a person with a negative attitude … ” I find your lack of faith disturbing”.
    Any location on the planet can be changed for the better. Hickory Creek can be converted into a beautiful area. This is true.
    Many lower class areas in many towns and cities around the world are being improved significantly. Have some vision, people!
    As John F Kennedy once said, “We do things not because they are easy, but because they are hard”.
