Live Like a Royal: Take a Peek Inside This Historic Dallas Castle
Who says the Brits have the market cornered on royalty? In the midst of the excitement surrounding the new royal baby and the upcoming royal wedding, we were thrilled to see a bit of homegrown royal glamour pop up stateside.
The historic Chateau des Grotteaux, which means “House of the Caves,” on Dallas’ desirable Gaston Avenue, recently hit the market for a regal $2,895,000.
The five-bedroom, 4,364-square-foot house modeled after a French castle was originally built for oilman Ed Cox in 1929, and served as the primary residence of Dallas mayor R.L. Thornton and his family until the 1970s.
"Its history is rich, the grounds are impeccable, the privacy is unrivaled and the potential for customization is unlimited," Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate listing agent DeCarla Anderson said in a statement, per Dallas Morning News. "Anyone who values those four things will want to take a look."
