Listing of the week – 49,000 Square Feet for Cool $35 Mil

1851 Turbeville Rd, Hickory Creek, TX 75065

You know the song…”The sun goes Up!  The sun goes down.  bum bum bum bum. DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS! Well, this Texas home is so big, it has it’s own sunrises and sunsets!

And bowling alley, and full stage theater, and hair salon in the master bathroom, racquetball courts and more.  Check out the listing written by Erica Riggs of Zillo.

Owners Alan and Shirley Goldfield spent five years and $46 million constructing Champ d’Or — French for “field of gold.” But, — surprise! — when it came time to move in, the two decided that the 49,000-square-foot home was too big.

Before the exterior scaffolding was even removed, the property was placed on the Hickory Creek real estate market for a whopping $45 million.

For the past eight years, the home has been for sale with prices ranging from $72 million to its current price of $35 million. Now, however, with the owners eager to move the process along, an auction has been set for March 30 — a growing trend among sellers of high-end properties.

“You could get lost in there,” she said.

While the home has six bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, it’s the other amenities that put the home in a category all its own:

  • Veranda with seating for 450 people.
  • Ionized lap pool off the master suite.
  • Master suite that includes a breakfast bar, steam room with room for 2 and a two-story Chanel-styled closet.
  • Soundproof-theater room with adjacent lobby.
  • Three kitchens: private, catering and staff.
  • Third-floor private suite with its own dining room, living room and two bathrooms.
  • Bowling alley.
  • Wine room.
  • Full-sized ballroom.
  • Gift wrap room.
  • Commercial-sized laundry room with sheet press
