If you’re ready to have your jaw hit the floor, make plans for our next CandysDirt.com Staff Party on July 14. It will be a progressive affair looking at two exquisite properties and today, I want to show you the first, a massive Chateau Du Lac mansion in Flower Mound.
Located at 5905 Giverny, this 14,906-square-foot manse sits on 8.34 acres, walking distance to Grapevine Lake. The gated homesite offers the utmost privacy and security while also affording the homeowner multiple lifestyle and entertainment options, including the ability to have both a helipad and horses!
Some of the features — and I could go on and on — include a ten-car garage, eight beautifully appointed bedrooms, a wine cellar that doubles as safe room, two full kitchens, a dining hall that can accommodate 28, and a pond with a well house and mill.
Our staff party will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 14, and you can RSVP here. I’ll have another post on the second property later this week. In the meantime, you’ve got to see this one!
This is a gated home within the guard-gated community of Chateau Du Lac, one of the most exclusive communities in DFW. With the backdrop of the lake and a heavily treed and lushly landscaped lot, this estate affords homeowners the opportunity to escape the congestion, noise, and stress of urban life in a matter of minutes. Here, they can relax and recharge each evening, enjoying the sight of grazing deer and the sound of water features. Yet this is just ten minutes to DFW airport and 25 minutes to downtown Dallas. Hard to believe.
The interior delights with marble flooring, hand-scraped hardwood floors, floating staircases, six custom fireplaces, and cathedral ceilings with exposed beams. Six living areas, wet bar, and balcony with a ground-level veranda are just the beginning for the entertainment options.
Both the main kitchen and entertaining hall kitchen have top-of-the-line, commercial-grade appliances that would thrill any caterer. Both include granite countertops, custom cabinets, islands, and pot fillers.
The breakfast area off the kitchen overlooks the backyard.
With 14,906 square feet on two stories, this manse was built with every imaginable specialized space. It’s a thrill to walk through the one room after another, each more elegantly appointed and perfectly executed than the last.
The attention to detail and fine craftsmanship is particularly evident in the wood-paneled study with a spiral staircase and balcony overlooking the main level of the room. In the library/media room, a wood world map has been inlaid in the floor by hand.
An incredible dining hall accommodates a seated dinner party for 28 guests under its vaulted, beamed ceiling. It’s one of the areas that most recommends this property as an exceptional location for entertaining.
The wine cellar features a tasting room, perfect for an intimate evening. The wine cellar itself doubles as a safe room, complete with a Murphy bed, television, and, of course, plenty of wine to keep the occupant entertained!
The master suite is a lovely respite from the world with a fireplace, sitting areas, hardwood floors, and a custom ceiling treatment. The ensuite bathroom offers a jetted tub, separate shower, dual vanities, and walk-in closets, of course. Like the rest of the house, it’s the whole package.
This incredible Chateau Du Lac estate will be auctioned without reserve by Elite Auctions on Saturday, July 21 at 11 a.m. on-site. The preview schedule includes a viewing Sunday, July 15, from 1 to 4 p.m. and Friday, July 20, from 1 to 4 p.m. Please call 214-326-1875 or email Alicia@EliteAuctions.com to schedule your appointment time — you must be scheduled to view the property.
