It’s not every day that little pieces of paradise hit the real estate market, so when they do, you better believe we come running.
The latest property to get our hearts racing is a Mediterranean-inspired estate in Aledo, Texas— an upscale town located about 25 minutes west of Fort Worth. The 19,265-square-foot mansion at 107 Nueces Trail is situated on more than 100 acres, and it’s the biggest residential property to hit the market in that area in almost three decades. The best part? It can be yours for just $9,995,000.
"It's the biggest residential estate in Parker County that I can remember in the last 25 years," John Zimmerman, the listing agent with Briggs Freeman Sotheby's International Realty told Dallas Morning News. "It's like a five-star hotel. It's like you're going to the JW Marriott in San Antonio."
He’s not joking. The home has seven bedrooms, six full bathrooms, six half-bathrooms and a seven-car garage. Thanks to a commercial-grade kitchen, a wet bar near the home theater, a stunning resort-style pool, and a 1,000-bottle wine cellar, it’s also an entertainer’s dream—that is, if you can get your guests to take their eyes off the frescoed coffered ceiling in the bar. And don’t even get us started on the luxurious master suite and its palatial closet.
"I've had more inquiries about this than any other property," Zimmerman revealed to the Morning News. "This seems to be resonating unbelievably in the marketplace."
The home was built in 2014 by philanthropist George Mercer, who reportedly died earlier this year following a bout with cancer. It is scheduled to be sold at auction, via a phone app, at 4 p.m. Central time on Sept. 21.
