Press Release - August 20, 2019

Impeccable Dallas-Area French Tudor Estate will be Sold at Auction

Rare opportunity: Estate never before offered is presented without reserve

DALLAS, Texas (August 20, 2019) — Demonstrating once again that luxury home auctions are an increasingly popular method of selling homes, a showcase Cedar Hill home will be available through Heritage Auctions this August.

The custom French Tudor-style estate was constructed by a local builder for his personal residence and is packed with extra features and amenities. Currently arranged with 4 beds/3.2 baths/2 living areas/2 offices/2 workshops on more than two and a half acres. Never before listed for sale, this luxurious property is offered without reserve.

"The traditional model of buying and selling real estate is being pressured on all fronts by innovation. Increasingly, sellers are looking for a faster, more streamlined and predictable approach,” says Nate Schar, Director of Luxury Real Estate for Heritage Auctions. "An auction provides a predictable sale date and creates excitement in the market. The property in Cedar Hill is a great example of a custom home with broad appeal. It should do very well at auction.”

The stunning house has plenty of curb appeal, but the real showstopper is the incredible back yard. A complete outdoor kitchen is only the beginning. An 88,000-gallon diving pool with waterfall and spa beckons visitors. Nearby, a pool cabana fireplace offers a place to relax in all seasons. The expansive property is bisected by a creek, and is heavily wooded behind the lawn.

Inside, coffered ceilings, plaster walls, arched doorways and extensive custom woodwork set a comfortably elegant mood. The home features everything one would expect from a home of this caliber: a gourmet kitchen, comfortable living areas, impressive fireplaces and built in storage throughout. The generously proportioned office is perfect for a home-based business: it has two storage rooms and private garage access. A second office could be an additional bedroom, fitness center or studio.

Hobbyists will appreciate the 977-square-foot workshop with attached tandem garage, HVAC, laundry, kitchenette and half bath. The workshop could easily be converted into a cottage for multi-generational living or guests, thanks to its thoughtful construction.

Built with an eye toward the weather, the home also features an interior storm shelter and extra bracketing for resistance to wind shear.

Bidding for the house, which has never been listed for sale, will take place online Aug. 27 via Heritage's Luxury Real Estate Auction platform. The property will be sold without reserve. Bidders are required to register prior to the sale at
