If you have always wanted to see an estate built without regard to budget, I mean truly no expense spared, oh boy we have one for you: 3509 Euclid, listed with Vicki White of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty
And with $22 million poured into it, this mansion is now the biggest bargain in Texas with its new, “sell me, sell me!” listing price.
Consider: more than 18,000 square feet. Underground parking for at least 10 (which makes valet car retrieval very easy in case of a storm). Seven to nine bedrooms, a master suite that is larger than most homes at 2638 square feet, putting green, golf simulator, outdoor kitchen, the most perfect pool environment, and the most sought after location in Highland Park.

There is even a remote back entry gate (with separate remote exit gate) leading to a large motor court that could double as a sports court: summer camp right in your backyard.

Beautifully positioned on close to an acre in the most prestigious corner of Highland Park, the owners of this meticulously crafted estate commissioned three of the most esteemed professionals in Texas to make it a home nirvana: Architect Robbie Fusch (need we say more?), master builder John Sebastian, and our very own landscape guru Harold Leidner created a landscape plan that rivals the most beautiful resort landscaping you have ever seen.
Who was the owner? Wade Neal Barker, a Mesquite bariatric surgeon who pleaded guilty to his role in a $200 million health care fraud deal involving the now defunct Forest Park Medical Center on North Central just north of Forest Lane, of which he was a co-founder.
