Real Estate in Dallas You Will (Probably) Never Own
Becoming a millionaire is a short-lived fantasy for a journalist. But that doesn't mean I can't drool over fancy MLS listings. It would probably take multiple winning lottery tickets to move me and my 29-inch television into one of these houses, but that won't squelch my fantasy. According to Zillow.com, these are the four most expensive houses on the market in Dallas today.
Do you remember when your friend's dad bought a projector, a few recliners and put up a blackout curtain in the room that was probably meant to be a home office? Well, this house makes him look like a cheapskate. It has a rinky-dink media room, as well as an in-house movie theater, complete with a candy display and popcorn machine. I wonder if they hire help for Oscar season. This could all be yours for just $19.5 mil.

For a mere $19 mil, White Rock Lake would be a water feature in your backyard. This five-bedroom, 10-bathroom estate comes complete with a putting green, a pool, a detached garage for your 25 vintage cars and a four-lane bowling alley. That's right, your house could have a freaking BOWLING ALLEY. All of this and so much more could be yours with a mortgage of just $74,171 per month. Maybe your pockets are deep enough to carry your bowling balls as well.
I guess you're paying for the neighborhood with this one; compared with the expansive wonderland of the above WRL castle, $15.9 mil seems like a rip-off for just 3 bedrooms. I suppose if owning a Mediterranean villa in Texas is your thing and you don't want to move to Plano, this could be the place for you. Plus, you're just a few blocks from Mi Cocina so you don't have to try any exotic foods.
What's $14 mil anyway?
Five acres near Bachman Creek? Yes, please. I'll just build a tiny home on the lawn, if that's OK with whoever buys this thing. I'll wander over for breakfast in the mornings and provide you with great company over a bottle of wine at night. We'll have a great little life; you in your $14 mil estate, me in my tiny house on your lawn. Not creepy at all.
OK, that's all we've got in today's edition of Dallas Real Estate You Will (probably) Never Own.
