Tucked behind the guarded gates of Chateau Du Lac in Flower Mound, this pristine abode radiates grandeur and elegance from the moment you pull into the driveway. Let the maze-like gardens before the front door transport you to the lavish French countryside, where the smell of lavender always lingers. With a few trips to the market, your new home can be known for this enchanting aroma, too, which is highly appropriate since you’ll be living in lovely Flower Mound.

To let you in on a little secret, Flower Mound is the new “it” spot everyone is house hunting in, and this property is the ultimate gem. Voted the Safest Texas City with a Population over 50,000, Flower Mound is a beautiful place to live with tons to do. People are gravitating to the area for its idyllic landscape and easy commute to both Dallas and Fort Worth, and chic restaurants and stores are pouring in, too.

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

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!
