The vision was to create a Texas-sized getaway in which to entertain friends and relax. The setting was 117 lush acres in Grayson County next to the Tanglewood Country Club. From the start, it was a perfect recipe for fashionable sporty elegance. Endowed with a voluminous 14,000 square feet, the generous three-story mansion takes you from the formal grandeur of a 26-foot-tall entrance hall with barrel ceiling and Tuscan sunset murals at each end to a natatorium featuring a 55,000-gallon indoor heated pool suspended on 21 piers. In between are the grand firelit living room—one of six—a banquet hall, four kitchens, a richly upholstered media center, nine baths, and six bedrooms crowned by the divine master suite with fireplace and spa bath.
