It had previously been on the market as much as $29,500,000 in 2012 and more recently for $17,500,000. Built c.1929, the historic residence is said to have had only two owners in the past six decades, including oil tycoon H.L. Hunt in the 1930s and the current owners, John and Teresa Amend, who embarked on a lengthly renovation and restoration of the property. According to the listing, many of the original details remain, including wood floors, doors and panelling, foot-thick concrete walls, marble fireplaces and hearths and a remarkable Spirit of America mural. In total there is a little over 10,500 square feet of space with five bedrooms and eight bathrooms on a 10 acre estate overlooking White Rock Lake. More recent additions to the property include a two storey guest house, a professionally quipped bowling centre with four lanes and a for the auto enthusiasts, a substantial 4,800 square foot showroom garage with capacity for sixteen vehicles or seated dining for 300 guests. This is a very special property with a long history in Dallas. It’s on the market for $14,900,000 with Allie Beth Allman.
