Location: Celina, Texas
The Skinny: This 314-acre property, located 45 minutes outside Dallas, can only be described as an equestrian amusement park: there's not one but two arenas (one competition-size), a ranch manager's home, a stall barn, an equipment barn, and a mare motel. Then there's the 15,000-square-foot brick-and-stone main house, built in 1995, with its seven-car garage, wine cellar, and truly extraordinary living room decked with more than 40 mounted busts. One finds throughout the house the expected quantity of wood-beamed ceilings, stone hearths, imposing leather armchairs, and Native American-inspired fabrics and furnishings (that dining room set is the true pièce de résistance.), and taxidermied animal statues (like the two black bears presiding over the master bedroom). Also on the grounds? A heated, lagoon-like pool and three stock ponds: just perfect for lazy-Sunday gone-fishin' types with $15M lying around.
