For those of you following our coverage on The Brownstones in the Garden District at Southlake Town Square, we have news! One of these babies just hit the market for $1.595 million, and we went straight to the source for all the dirt.

Let me just put it this way — out here, 8,000 square feet is considered an average-sized home.

There are 8,882 square feet of glorious living space, from mega formals (including four living areas, to a hearth room and loft in the library, a card room and housekeeper’s living quarters over the garage), outdoor patio, kitchen and bar, pool (natch), a ten acre lot with koi pond and stocked tank, pasture, enough room for horses and even a barn, and automatic gates around the whole thing.
