Oooh, this one is different. Today’s Saturday Eight Hundred is far more ornate than my usual picks, and it just barely makes it into the $800,000 block. But I dig it in its crazy ornate madness. There’s so much for my imagination to run wild with! With Swarovski crystal chandeliers aplenty and gleaming marble floors, 17183 Club Hill Drive definitely brings the bling. And this French Normandy-inspired home backs up to Bent Tree Golf Course, so the views aren’t half bad, either.

With three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms in nearly 5,500 square feet, this Far North Dallas home is also roomy, to say the least. It’s downright enormous. Speaking of, have you seen your family this week? No worries. Your spouse is hanging out in the wine cellar and the kids are in the pool. You might as well fix yourself a snack in the gourmet kitchen and run a hot bath in the jetted tub. The others can fend for themselves. This week’s pick is listed by Re/Max’s Michael Gaule for $899,500. Join us after the jump for some soaring ceilings and a whole lot of crystal.
