The Most Expensive Home For Sale In Texas

This listing was found on a real estate listing site called Zillow in September of 2022.

$43 Million buys you this unbelievable 6-bedroom home not far from downtown Dallas. If that seems a bit pricey, think in terms of imported Bulgarian limestone, custom iron doors, black and white panda marble, bright-white columned archways, gourmet kitchen, custom cabinetry, countertops of Azul Macaubus, blue-hued quartzite, and African mahogany in the library/study. Plus the wine room, theater, yoga and exercise room, sauna, spa, and safe room. Out of 8 full baths and 3 half baths, no two bathrooms are alike.

Then there's the massive garage with 7 or 10 parking bays with electric charging stations. Geo heating/cooling, solar panels, and groundwater tank.

Is this the place for you?

Cross of Our Lord Ministries

If you look up Route 66 destinations, this is definitely one of them. As to your desire to stop and see it, that may be up to your religious beliefs, but as a Christian, it was a great destination for me. You might say, I most highly recommend it.
