Exquisite Chateau Du Lac Mansion Will Host Next CandysDirt.com Staff Party

Share News:

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! 

Walk to Grapevine Lake from this property.
The drive-up appeal will impress guests and there is ample space for valet parking.
This house offers privacy and seclusion, as well as many lifestyle options for homeowners, from horses to a helipad.
The feel is tranquil and serene in the exterior spaces.
The outdoor kitchen and fireplace includes a negative edge pool and spa, as well as fire pit and multiple seating areas.
The 8.34 acres of this property are lush and heavily treed, giving a sense of respite from city life.
The spring-fed pond has a mill and well house, a one-of-a-kind feature in North Texas.

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.

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.

Like the first, the second kitchen features commercial-grade appliances.
It’s not often one sees a coffered ceiling in a kitchen, let alone a second one.

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.

The master bedroom has one of six custom fireplaces as well as room for a sitting area.
