    if you have that kind of money, buy yourself a real fucking castle in europe, don't build yourself a disney-fied version in fucking texas.

    Why do uber rich people never have comfortable looking furniture?

    It is way too big. It reminds me of a documentary I watched recently called The Queen of Versailles. Anyone else ever see it? Now they were a hot mess!

    A little too marble but overall very nice.I think I could spend days in the library. The grounds are heavenly.

    I didn't watch the whole thing, but I saw a clip or preview of it. That place was insane and tacky as hell!

    About as homey as a hotel, but not gonna lie, I'd happily take it off their hands. I'd love to walk out the door to that beautiful private pond in my backyard.

    For $135 million you could live anywhere in the world, or even buy your own damned country.
    Why the hell would somebody with that kind of money live in Dallas?

    Yeah, that place is going to sit on the market for a loooong time.

    Because people who are that rich and live in Texas *like* living in Texas.

    It reminded me of the Dallas set, the show I mean.

    I love the grounds, particularly the waterfall but the interior needs gutting and the silver/green room with the bar in it needs torching.

    See, I kind of found the silver and green wet bar kind of interesting. It reminds me of the hidden prohibition-era wet bars they used to build in houses, but this house was built two decades past that, so I'm not sure what the thinking was on that.

    Looking at these again, I still think the only really nice parts are the grounds and the blinds in the sun room. And I like the dining room chairs, but the rest is pretty McMansionish.

    There are more billionaires living within the Dallas city limits than any other city in the world. Not counting the few in the Ft Worth area.


    Edit: Never mind, looks like that statistic is no longer accurate. Looks like 8th in the world. Still a good number. Actually, I was probably thinking most in TX. Lol time for bed I think.

    I LOVE the amount of light it lets in, but why for the love of God does anyone need that much house???

    Ok my eyeball is twitching looking at that library. I realise that the books have been "artistically arranged" to make things look lived in but really want to get in there and straighten the books up. The grounds are beautiful and the mansion isn't as tacky as I thought it would be. I would love to stay there for a week or so but I doubt that I could ever live in such a large place. It just seems so impersonal and lonely.
