The growing city of Mansfield, Texas in southern Tarrant county is known for its country like atmosphere away from the big cities – or in other “real estate” words, where elaborate and private estates are built with acreage. This residence in Mansfield is both elaborate and very private: elaborate interior within the gates of Hidden Valley Estates.

From the front gates of the very private residence, the full essence of the home is captured – a wondrous home perfectly situated amongst green pastures and wooded acres. The driveway forms a square-ish, if you will, parking center in front of the entrance stairs; the drive then veers around to the right, parts slightly to wind under the porte cochere, which leads to the motor court and 4 car garage, and then continues to the very back grounds of the residence where a large concrete slab sits – a great place for a basketball court. A play ground is also back by the court. The tranquil pool setting is established by crape myrtles and wooded backgrounds. The grounds total 2.66 acres.

The elaborate interior boasts 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and 7,188 sq. feet. The arched front entrance opens to a masterpiece foyer complete with an iron-weaved staircase, large and colorful paintings, and exquisite wood work. Two overlooking areas are situated onto the 2nd floor and look down onto the foyer. The elaborate wood work can be seen through the whole residence – from the dining room to the resting area under the turret. More interior amenities include a game room, media room, mud room, wine cellar, library, and exercise room.

This elaborate Mansfield residence is generously listed for $1,350,000 and can be found at 5312 Hidden Valley Court.

    I don’t like the angled walls in the living room (family room?) area or in the master bedroom. Or the cream color in every room. But that can be fixed easily.

    It seams to be a great deal for the price.

    I thought this was a superb interior job until I noticed the out of scale ceilings and windows

    1.3M? That’s an awesome price! Not my style, but wow…talk about a bargain! Must be poorly located.

      I just checked it up. Mansfield is a suburb of Fort Worth (i.e. Dallas – Fort Worth) and was in fact ranked as one of the best places to live in America (nr. 24) by CNN/Money Magazine in 2009.
      Amazing price, great home, and the location is good too

    Yeh I agree the price is simply phenomenal. I like the house, it’s airy and nice – and for that price – simply a steal

    To much ornaments but the basic structure is fine. This place would cost about 4-7 times as much down here…

    I don’t think you could replicate this house in S. Florida for the price. Makes me question the quality of the materials used.

    The exterior is pretty ugly. The interior is better, but as mentioned, has some weird design details. The 2-story living room (photo 7) is terrible; the fireplace and window arrangement are beyond funky. The library (photo 6?) is way overdone. The den (photo 5) is probably my favorite room, minus the crown molding. The entry foyer is nice as well.

    I’m a sucker for balconies inside the house, like those in the third picture. The front of the lot looks a little barren, which I’m sure will improve when the landscaping matures.

    Overall, the style is a bit ornate for me, but I understand the appeal and see this as a fairly nicely decorated home. The pool area especially looks welcoming on a sultry Texas afternoon. Not bad.

    Dare I say cheap, bargain?
    Not bad at all.
