M Mansion Heading to Auction

5540-north-forty-place-dallas-texas-1M Mansion Heading to Auction

5540 N 40 Place N, Dallas, Texas, United States, 75252

Inspired by the classic design of a historic French Chateau, this unparalleled Dallas estate is more than a simple place to reside, it is a one-of-a-kind sanctuary for the senses. Meticulously constructed over seven years by Ventura Custom Homes, no opportunities for enhancing comfort have been overlooked.


The 3.29-acre lot is one of few in the exclusive North Dallas Forty enclave of private estates, protected by a gate with security code access. The heavily wooded landscape and thick, rich foliage work in tandem with the mansion’s French motif to evoke a timeless, ethereal atmosphere.




Even summa cum laudes of Le Cordon Bleu® would be thrilled to show off their skills in this breathtaking yet functional chef’s kitchen.


Custom wood cabinetry, stone countertops and mosaic tile backsplash are second only to the utmost in high-end appliances: gas Wolf range with carved stone vent hood, two wall ovens, vegetable sink, pasta faucet and more. Hand-scraped wood floors and an impressive arched ceiling anchor the space.



Impressive stone masonry, custom stained glass, hand-carved woodwork, imported doors, and intricate iron railings and hardware enhance the home’s unique character.  Other luxury amenities include five fireplaces, an elevator, theater room, wine cellar, game room, separate office quarters, private guest quarters and five garage spaces.



From initial entry through imported dual wood doors, the massive master bedroom is both impressive and warm. Stone Corinthian columns separate the sleeping area from a large living room. Intricate stone tilework and stained glass windows add grandeur to the master bath, enhanced by the crystal chandelier that drips from above. A private balcony offers a peaceful respite.
