I almost spit out my wine when I saw this Millennium Mansion in Colleyville.
It was a eureka moment as I am continually hunting for perfect suburban luxury homes, and it’s not easy. When I scour the Internet for estates, manors, and mansions that will captivate our readers, the suburbs consistently fail to deliver. I always see what I refer to as 3-D homes. Dark, dated, and depressing. But lo and behold I bring you an absolute knockout Millennium Mansion this week, in Colleyville!
It’s the antithesis of the 3-D home.
Of course, it’s been thoughtfully updated, and the brilliant owners have done what every stager in the world advises—painting the heavy dark woodwork white. This house now looks like a big bowl of Blue Bell Vanilla with lashings of whipped cream on top. It’s simply delicious.
Although paint goes a very long way in making a home fresh again, it must also hit the mark on finish out, fixtures, and furnishings. This cosmetic remodel is exquisite.
“No stone was left unturned on this update,” Keller Williams listing agent Barbara Pantuso said. “The present owners did everything right. From the moment you walk in the front door, this home takes your breath away.”
This Colleyville Millennium Mansion was built by Paul Kramer, owner of Castlegate Custom Homes. If you read CandysDirt.com regularly, you know we always say, if you can buy a home built by a builder for his family, call the Realtor, grab your checkbook, and move quickly.
Sitting on 8.48 acres, with 14,591-square-feet, seven bedrooms, 13 bathrooms (nine full, and four half-baths), an exercise room, media room, study, separate guest quarters, tennis courts, a pool, a pond, and a barn, this estate is the perfect place to raise a family. If you’ve ever wondered why people move to the suburbs, this home provides the perfect answer: privacy and proximity. Where else will find this amount of land, complete luxury, and the ability to get to DFW Airport as well as NRH2O Family Water Park, Parr Park Sprayground in a few minutes?
Pantuso has this stunning Colleyville Millennium Mansion at 312 White Drive mansion listed for $8.99 million.
