A Mediterranean-style mansion in Highland Park took the title of Texas’ most expensive home listed last month.

The 16,000-square-foot estate at 3509 Euclid Avenue hit the market at $28 million, $1,750 per square foot, the Dallas Morning News reported. Compass agent Jonathan Rosen is the listing agent.

The Dallas area produced six of Texas’ top 10 priciest home listings last month, according to the Houston Association of Realtors, which used local listing services throughout the state

Sitting on nearly an acre, the home has six bedrooms and six full bathrooms. It features a home theater, a 10-car garage and a temperature-controlled wine grotto that can store 1,000 bottles. 

The kitchen opens to an outdoor patio, and the primary suite includes another patio and a gym with a dry sauna and massage room.

“The owner did a really big remodel and brought it a little more up to date,” Rosen said. “It’s got a great California vibe to it.”

The mansion is owned by a trust affiliated with the Herd family, known for their oil-and-gas wealth, according to public records. Billionaire Alex Davis, CEO of Austin-based Disputive Acquisition Corporation, moved into the estate in August 2023, D Magazine reported. It was previously owned by Wade Barker, a bariatric surgeon who pleaded guilty and was sentenced to federal prison time in a $200 million health care fraud case in 2018.

Two homes in Dallas’ Preston Hollow cracked the top five most-expensive listings last month: an 11,500-square-foot mansion at 10006 Hollow Way Road, priced at $14.9 million, and 12,900-square-foot home at 4625 Walnut Hill Lane, priced at $12.5 million. 

The three other homes, located in Preston Hollow, Highland Park and University Park, hit the market at $12.45 million, $11.75 million and $9 million, respectively.

Highland Park yielded another eye-popping listing in early April, when the 11,300-square-foot mansion at 3612 Crescent Avenue went up for sale at nearly $20 million. Rosen is representing that property, as well. 

Eight figure home sales are becoming more common in Texas. There was one in Dallas-Fort Worth in 2022, and there were three in the first half of last year.
