Here’s one of the most beautiful and luxurious estates from deep Texas. Found at 12780 Hilltop Road, in Argyle, this wonderful Equestrian Country Estate is flanked by two sets of private security gates and built among 50 exquisite acres of entirely fenced land and sandy loams, oak forests and plain green pastures.
The main residence boasts with soaring high ceilings, a stunningly warm interior design with Venetian elements like plaster walls and heavy dark wood trim. Furthermore, in order to make the best out of this exquisite construction, its owners have travelled far and wide in order to bring foreign features into it.
They consist of antiques, artworks, rare pieces and one off architectural elements. Anyway, this magnificent home has been created under the strict supervision of the acclaimed top designer Mr. Kelly O’Neal, whose impressive expertise is, in a pretty obvious manner, visible throughout.
What’s the most interesting feature of this property? Everywhere you look, everywhere you go, within each room, you’ll definitely find unique designs and arrangements. What we can say is that this is an absolute heaven for the lovers of Texas designs alongside influences from France, Italy, Santa Barbara, Napa and Santa Fe.
Overall, the estate includes an attached guest apartment and studio, a separate three bedroom guest house, manager’s home, two horse barns, an extravagantly rustic main residence, in excess of 20 acres of coastal pastures and a wonderful 160 ft x 205 ft Kiser riding arena.
Out of all these, 12,205 square feet are represented by luxurious air conditioned living spaces, while the total of 15,722 square feet of roofed interior space also include a large screened in living area, a massive car garage and covered balconies. Serving as home to more than 4,000 bottles of wine, a massive climate control wine cellar and dining room also comes with the price, alongside other inclusions – dumbwaiter, dishwasher, additional closet/panic room, a separate wine refrigerator and a dining table which can accommodate up to 10 people.
Heading upstairs, curious ones will stumble upon a state of the art entertainment venue with antique coin-op machines, poker tables able to accommodate up to 32 people (!!!), theater, cigar closet, model trains, bar, a wonderful games’ room and many more.
Furthermore, the outer space is dominated by an amazing saltwater pool with additional water features, a recirculating separate stream, spa, infinity edge and wonderful views towards the green pastures and the stocked lake. There are also other interesting features for entertainment and relaxation like a jungle zoo, tree house for both adults and kids, professional Zip Line and a gorgeous trolley car whose purposes are dining and playing.
And it’s the price that has staggered us the most. Even though this awkwardly magnificent and extravagant houses so many features, its listing price is amazingly low – a mere $11 million. We’ve seen cars and useless jewels more expensive than this! Absolutely wonderful!
