Do you like buttresses and Corinthian columns? What do you think of classical statues in the kitchen? What about multiple kitchens?
Could you use more space? How about a 15-seat movie theater, arcade room, and DJ station? Do you even have a disco room for that DJ station?
Is your imagination fired? I hope so because all this luxury is on the market at 6509 Sudbury Road in Plano, listed by Victor Vo of RE/MAX DFW Associates.
The 2015-built estate is a marvel of all-inclusiveness in residential property, and even in the rainforest diversity of Dallas luxury real estate, it stands out.
To riff on a famous quotation — if this didn’t exist, it would be necessary to invent it. Or if you build it they will come. Or let them eat cake. You can say tons of stuff.
Let’s start with the hard facts. It’s listed for $7,199,990. It has six bedrooms, six bathrooms, and three half baths. It spans 12,889 square feet.
It’s part of the Kings Gate guarded subdivision, whose slightly higher elevation makes for striking views. Stand by the designer pool in the yard of this palace, and Dallas sprawls across your view like a Mediterranean vista.
And that’s before you walk inside.
“The house was built by someone in the hotel business, and they aimed for actual luxury hotel features,” says Victor Vo. “It’s like a Ritz-Carlton.”
Let’s take an example. Some homes have foyers. This one has a foyer that serves as a lobby — a lobby with double staircases, colonnades, and a lounge area.
Bringing things down to earth, Victor points out perhaps the home’s greatest potential: entertaining a large family. In that sense it’s a shame Thanksgiving 2020 is generally sidelined.
In a parallel universe, this is the place you fed, housed, and entertained multiple generations of your family tree. Imagine a mob of young cousins streaming into the arcade. And then, the movie theater, with chairs that shake along to the movie action. And then, the disco room is perfect for your family’s annual talent show. You could hire an MC!
The next morning, moms and dads enjoying some quiet could settle into the sauna after a workout in the home gym.
The kitchens, both of them, stand up to large catering jobs, with premium finish-out, room for roller carts, and broad cooktops.
Each bedroom has a master bathroom layout. And the bathrooms are marble.
Here’s hoping the next owner of 6509 Sudbury appreciates its beauty. In other words, let’s hope they have great ambitions to share it. It’s hard to admire anything on this scale when there’s nobody to turn to in astonishment.
