About Prosper, Texas: Where The Home is Located
They say the town is named Prosper for a reason: because this 10-bedroom, 10 bath house is one of the Texas town’s most high-end home listings. With an eight-acre lake housing a fountain and private dock, this house leaves little to the imagination.
An extravagant open entrance with soaring two-story ceilings, exquisite architectural detail in mirroring winding stairs, marble flooring, and marvelous views channel an exuberant vibe.
Exquisite & Entertaining Amenities
Apart from the 10 bedrooms, 10 full and 3 half baths, the property features a dedicated entertainment wing that has a bowling alley, indoor basketball court, indoor football field, 3 swimming pools(lagoon-style, regular, and indoor), a theater, a barbershop, and a billiard room, an awards gallery, and custom trophy case.
Have You Seen The Kitchen?
Chateau Montclair also has a commercial-grade kitchen. One of the many highlights is the opulence master suite, which has a kitchenette, a huge 3,000 -square-foot custom closet, a fireplace and the master bath features a sink in sauna jacuzzi,
Not to mention the floor in the foyer to the master bedroom, that we hear is covered with beautiful carpet.
Vehicle Storage Galore & Housekeepers Quarters
There’s also a sprawling 14-car motor court and additional bays that can accommodate a boat. Of course, a huge house needs upkeep and this one features housekeepers quarters and much more.
The interior design, lawns, gardens, and external features of the property are nothing short of palatial.
Why Hasn’t The Home Sold Yet?
For a home that’s this size, it has had its share of market challenges. Sanders listed the property for $21 million and sold the chateau in 2014, a real estate agent sued “Prime Time” Claiming he’d withheld $1 million from the sale which was a reported $15 million.
Public records indicate it sold again in 2016. Later in 2014 it almost sold for $4 when it was put on sale at an auction where there were eight registered bidders.
But the house did not sell, and a private sale deal was made later, It was then listed, removed, and listed again before going back on the market for $12.75 million.
Neon Deion’s property was picked up in a deal arranged by a Dallas developer Don Silverman. They planned to develop most of the land into upscale homes.
The original plot was divided into many lots and is now an upscale residential enclave called Montclair with a shopping center, and Prosper’s first Kroger, at the intersection of Preston Road and Prosper Trail Road.
This leaves the original Chateau Montclair, the once blue, now sand-pink stucco mansion about six acres of land.
Back on The Market
Regardless of its color or past troubles with selling, this impressive mansion is still a sizable private estate. It saw a spate of price reductions during its for-sale time. Now the Dallas Cowboys star’s onetime Texas mansion is back on the market, in January 2020, it was marked down further by $1.8 million.
Its current list price is a mere $5.75 million. Once the mansion was all you could see driving up to it however now the new owners are going to have some new neighbors, the mansion now has an entire posh community of 25 high-end homes built around it.
