Monday Morning Millionaire: Modern Mansion on Ash Bluff is Priced to Move!

Share News:

This home really made me do a double-take. I was scrolling through the pictures and I asked myself, “Self, if you had enough moolah to buy this incredible 6,000-plus-square-foot home, how much do you think it would run?”

I was tossing a few numbers around in my head — maybe $3 million, give or take $25K. And then I saw the asking price. Ho-ly cow! $1,999,000? Really? This isn’t a home, it’s more of a compound! AND IT’S PRICED LESS THAN ITS DCAD VALUE!

I was shocked. I couldn’t believe that a home with not just one amazing kitchen with commercial appliances and built-ins out the wazoo, but a caterer’s kitchen too, could be priced at less than $2 million.

There are amazing floor-to-ceiling windows everywhere, huge wood-burning fireplaces, a bazillion rooms, a long hallway that reminds me of the Dallas Museum of Art, and amazing exposed steel and wood ceilings.

The bathrooms are works of art in their own right. The freestanding tub that is so insane it has to be custom, and there’s a sitting area just a few feet from it. Remember how we thought it was cool to have a peek-a-boo shower window to the commode in the master bath? In this one, would you be busy lathering up in the middle of the bathroom just feet from your friends and family carrying on a conversation? Crazy.

Also on the secluded 1.5-acre lot is a carriage house with a first-floor solarium and living quarters on the second floor. This house would be perfect for guests or even a live-in nanny (hey, a girl can dream, right?).

Ugh. This house is so beautiful and priced so ridiculously low that I feel spoiled after just looking at it.

It has left me wondering, though, if there aren’t other insane deals out there in the $1 million-plus range …
