Across the Dallas North Tollway from Tom Hicks’ sprawling estate sits 5818 Lakehurst Ave. in Dallas, Texas. This newly listed palatial French manor boasts extensive features including a corner lot on a quiet street, incredible construction, and top of the line amenities. Key features of the home include 5 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms with 8,034 sq. feet of living space. A wondrous double staircase stands in the grand foyer of the home leading to the second floor. More indoor amenities include a game room, home theater, exercise room, library, living rooms, exquisite interior design, and much more. The outdoor features a less than desirable 0.43 lot size, but a pool and cabana that will enhance every party.

    Why is it I like the cheaper homes in Texas than the more expensive ones? This one is not bad at all. Exterior is quite nice, and the master bedroom looks very well done. I guess it is cheap because it’s 200 feet away from a 6-lane highway…

    Find me a palace that’s only 8,000 sq ft and I’ll be satisfied with the “palatial” adjective. This is not palatial.

    Exterior ain’t bad, outdoor pool area nice too. Interior doesn’t do anything that hasn’t been done before a million and a half times, so it comes across as sort of average. And isn’t it time for the whole “blue sky with clouds” ceiling murals to go out of style? The amount of space between the two curved staircases is awkwardly narrow too.

    That price seems suspiciously low for Dallas, but this is still a “meh” for me.

      It’s considered a small palace, although it was built as a “hunting lodge” on the grounds of a much larger palace. It’s probably about 8,000 square feet, if not a little smaller: http://www.schloss-nymphenburg.de/englisch/p-palaces/amalien.htm

      Still, I get your point!

    Sheesh…why do so many new larger houses need to have horseshoe staircases, even when there’s not room in the entrance foyer for it? Are the builders/owners so desperate to impress any guests they feel compelled to put these into so many houses? They rarely work, and this one is a particularly bad example.

    The exterior isn’t bad at all, at least in the front. But, the interior is filled with average to cheap-looking pseudo-French furniture and cabinetry. The house is far too big for the lot, and the location near the freeway is unfortunate.

      I agree. The room is way to small for two staircases.
      I used to love them, but nowadays I’m more a person who likes a single staircase on the side, with more quality and less quantity.

      The rest is fine, but again; Texas, not my place…

    I think some of the furniture looks quite nice.
