What a dang deal for this stunning property! 8501 Cross Timbers Road has been listed for sale a while now and you can tell the seller is wanting, possibly needing, it to sell. Why? Recently listed at $1.9 million, which is still a generous listing offer for this estate, the price has been drastically reduced nearly $300,000 to $1.6 million dollars.
The estate has an incredibly interesting build, just take a glance at the pictures. The guest house attaches to the main 3 story house by a porte cochere. The porte cochere then leads to a motor court and 4 car garage! The home has two circle drives: one oval drive in front of the main living house and another circular drive/turn around area near the back of the estate on the other side of the porte cochere – a walking trail leads off into the woods from this drive. A pristine traditional style establishes its ranch background. Surrounded by wooded areas, the home actually sits on Grapevine Lake. The lake is only visible from the 3 story balcony. The estate is gated with many private ponds – since you can never have too much water on property.
The open floor plan of the home enables large windows to let in natural sunlight throughout the whole house. The main house boasts 7,795 sq. feet of living space decorated with 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, and a 3 car garage. The guesthouse includes 2 dining areas, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 1 car. The 1,884 sq. foot secondary living quarters includes 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms; this estate could literally be called a resort! An exercise room, game room, study, gourmet kitchen, and basement also accompany the main living house. A walk out basement enjoys amenities such as a spa, wet bar and sauna. And would you believe the estate even comes with a helipad? Not just one, but three helipads! O yes, and can’t forget about the sport court!
In all, the total square footage under roof is 12,050 sq. feet. The listing says it best – this estate enjoys “true country living with city convenience.”
