16,000 Sq. Ft. Dallas White House Reduced to $15-Million (PHOTOS & VIDEO)
10777 Strait Lane, Dallas, Texas, United States, 75229
A palatial 16,000 square foot Dallas manor modelled after Washington’s landmark White House has been reduced to $15-million. The strikingly similar residence originally came on the market in mid-2014 for $19.5-million before dropping to $15-million on December 30, 2015. Lincoln hasn’t slept here, there’s no oval office, and you can bet Trump won’t be living here, but from the exterior this exquisite manor shares many architectural details with the Presidential home. It was built in 1996 and was purchased by the current owners in 2001, who spent two years on an extensive renovation incorporating antiques, custom finishes, and hand-crafted cabinetry. Inside you’ll find an impressive formal entry with a staircase that was patterned after one in a Paris museum, a living room with walls of windows overlooking the lush landscape, multiple antique fireplaces, and custom finishes including Garbled marble flooring, walnut walls, and custom burled walnut ceilings. The residence sits on a 3.2-acre estate along Strait Lane in Dallas’ affluent Preston Hollow neighbourhood, and is landscaped with a swimming pool, koi pond, tennis court, and over 200 trees. Other features include an elevator, an impressive theatre that seats 24, a custom bar, and a total of 4 bedrooms & 5 bathrooms. The actual White House on Pennsylvania Avenue spans approximately 55,000 square feet with 132 rooms, including 16 family rooms, 1 main kitchen, 1 diet kitchen, 1 family kitchen, and a whopping 35 bathrooms. If you don’t plan on campaigning for President but you want a glimpse of what life would be like in the White House then consider this 16,000 square foot gem for $15-million. It’s listed with Sotheby’s International Realty.
