The Most Expensive Home For Sale In Texas

This listing was found on a real estate listing site called Zillow in September of 2022.

$43 Million buys you this unbelievable 6-bedroom home not far from downtown Dallas. If that seems a bit pricey, think in terms of imported Bulgarian limestone, custom iron doors, black and white panda marble, bright-white columned archways, gourmet kitchen, custom cabinetry, countertops of Azul Macaubus, blue-hued quartzite, and African mahogany in the library/study. Plus the wine room, theater, yoga and exercise room, sauna, spa, and safe room. Out of 8 full baths and 3 half baths, no two bathrooms are alike.

Then there's the massive garage with 7 or 10 parking bays with electric charging stations. Geo heating/cooling, solar panels, and groundwater tank.
