Most Expensive Listing
The state's most expensive home for sale is right here in North Texas
Start saving your pennies: The most expensive home listing in all of the Lone Star State happens to be located in North Texas.
Trulia recently picked out the priciest listing on the site in each state, and coming as a surprise to no one, 5950 Deloache Ave. is located in ritzy Dallas neighborhood Preston Hollow. Your neighbors could be former President George W. Bush, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, and business tycoon Ross Perot — if you have $28.5 million, that is.
The "pied-á-terre," as Trulia quaintly calls the 15,254-square-foot mansion, was designed by legendary architect Robert A.M. Stern and constructed in 1997 by John Sebastian. It was first listed at $37.5 million in 2014, so this price drop could almost be called a deal.
Four bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms are part of the main structure, but spread out over the 9-acre estate you'll also find a lake, several terraces, gardens, a tennis court, pool, and two-story guest house.
Inside the three-story main house there's a spa, library, leather-walled billiard room, master suite complex (because a suite itself simply isn't enough), and a natatorium for all your indoor swimming needs.
A five-car garage, elevator, basement, and oodles of marble, ornate plaster work, and soaring ceilings complete the home, which is listed with Erin Mathews at Allie Beth Allman.
Trulia estimates your monthly mortgage to be around $160,000. If that makes your heart stop, focus instead on the number $1,868, which is the estimated cost per square foot.
