    Not crazy about the townhouse (a 21K sq. ft. townhouse sounds a bit outrageous), but I wonder if the Bugatti is genuine.

      A gentleman by the name of John Ridings Lee owns the cars I think and you can assume that they are all genuine.

        The cars are beautiful. The ribbons on the wall made me believe they were genuine.

          If those are all genuine, then they’re collectively worth multiples of the asking price of this house. VERY impressive, and all very beautiful.

        Paul,

        I’m guessing Mr Lee owns the property too? Doesn’t he live in one of the LA suburbs these days with his film and television company? Both the cars and the home must be beautifully restored if he had anything to do with them. The man is a perfectionist . . .

          I am not sure about the current ownership of the property. John Ridings Lee Jr. is the one with the film/television company. John Ridings Lee Sr. is the vintage car collector/ralliest.

            Thank you for the clarification. Fine taste must run in the family. Love the cars and the house.

    I looked this place up on Google Maps (streetview), and this is definitely NOT a place I would spend 10 million on…

    To bad, the house itself really isn’t bad. It’s pretty good to be honest.

    I would not pay $10,000,000 to live next to a Cost Plus (or any strip mall for that matter). The location is an insurmountable problem. Yes, it’s on the edge of Highland Park, but it’s smack dab in the middle of a commercial district. It’s too bad, because I really like the house; it’s an interesting conversion from old commercial building into modern house. The townhouse idea would work much better in New York, San Francisco, or London, but in Dallas I’d want lots of land.

    10 million to live next to cost plus?, would you pay $50 million to live next to times square! even though its NY that is still a little to costly for me,

    Im pretty sure there is some important history attached to that place for them to want that much.

    While its quite lovely, I’d rather go for an actual mansion on an acre or two in Highland Park or Preston Hollow for the same price, but yet then again $10 million for 21k square feet in Dallas isn’t bad.

    I like this a fair amount, more than I expected to. The location, unfortunately, is an absolute deal-breaker. It’s a shame.

    The cars are quite impressive. The Alfa, which is a 1930 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Zagato, which is genuine, is a 7-figure car by itself. Same for the blue Bugatti.

    Wow the location does sound like a downer.

    Very sophisticated and well done house though. I love all the glazing, greenery and restrained materials chosen.

    This location would probably suit an older couple/semi retired? want to be walking distance to all the action (presuming its good) instead of driving ages to go out etc.

    Like instead of downsizing to a penthouse/apartment, you’d live here.

    But agreed not for everyone and more suited to dense cities like Grrrowler says.

    Awesome cars though. Very very beautiful.
