This place was built to be shown off. If you need convincing of this fact, I point you to the unbelievable second-floor bar and billiard at 12780 Hilltop in Argyle. It’s like Boston’s famous Bull and Finch Pub (Cheers, if you watch the TV show) without the weird smell and surly barmaids.
This incredible home, marketed by none other than Vanessa Andrews of Hoffman International, this Napa-inspired chateau is on the market for $11 million. The property includes 50 sandy loam acres in the Denton County suburb of Argyle. Just 20 minutes away from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, this estate is both secluded and accessible, thanks to the oak trees that buffer the main house from the rest of the world.
The estate includes a private lake, a wonderful barn, an arena, and a detached garage that has room enough for all your motors with a second floor conference area. Designed by architect John Hall, this amazing estate was completed in 2009 by Kindred-Pecchi builders. The main house totals 12,205 square feet, which includes the guest apartment that is big enough to host an overnight guest or two quite comfortably.
I love all of the warm materials used on this home. The exterior features a Samaca slate roof and brown Ozark dry-stack stone with gorgeous climbing vines. Inside you’ll find Venetian plaster, soft wood trim, tin tile ceiling in the “man cave,” and beautiful honey-colored hardwood floors.
The backyard is just as amazing, with an infinity-edge saltwater pool with views of the private lake, the pastures, and beyond. Come summer, I’m sure this area gets mighty crowded. There’s plenty of room to entertain guests, too, considering the oversized patio and enclosed loggia.
And if you own horses, this property has both an amazing barn and arena. I love how this estate has brought the outdoors in and the comforts of indoors to the outside. What do you love most about this incredible home?
