UPDATED June 23, 2002, 11:25 a.m.: A 19,000-square-foot Dallas home built in affluent Preston Hollow to resemble a French chateau is headed for the auction block.
The home overlooks Bachman Branch, a tributary of the Trinity River, and bidding starts at $19 million on July 14, according to the website of Sotheby’s Concierge Auctions. The seven-bedroom home has 10 full bathrooms and four half-baths and is close to shopping and dining in downtown Dallas as well as the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.
Located at 9727 and 9715 Audubon Place, it was designed by Robbie Fusch to showcase a French châteaux-inspired exterior, according to Hannah Serwatka of Sotheby’s Concierge Auctions. The property was built in 2000 and renovated in 2019 with additional square footage, and is for sale with an adjacent lot.
It has marble and hardwood floors, an elevator, billiard room, a bar, media room, climate-controlled vehicle showroom, an infinity pool, spa, outdoor kitchen, outdoor fireplaces and a tasting room with a wine cooler storage for 1,000 bottles.
The auction willow allow access to international buyers, “allow the property to be sold at an accelerated timeline, and offer a roughly 30-day contingency-free closing following the sale date,” Serwatka said.
