House of the Day: A Splash of Color in the Heart of Dallas



It may boast 14,670 square feet of living space and a $12.5 million price tag, but this isn't your typical Dallas estate.

For one thing, the eight-bedroom, eight-bathroom property is mighty quirky. With its bold design (an eclectic mixture of Italian and Southwestern architecture), hand-painted wooden ceilings, limestone fireplaces and kaleidoscopic details, it's been called one of the most "riotously colorful luxury homes around."


But wait, there's more! Beyond the rich color and custom decor, you get an incredible, state-of-the-art chef's kitchen (unsurprising, considering the last reported owner of the property is restaurateur Phil Romano, of Romano's Macaroni Grill fame) featuring banks of Traulsen refrigerators and freezers, a Vulcan oven and stove, stainless steel cabinets and a huge walk-in pantry. When you're finished whipping up your gourmet meal, you can stroll casually around your sprawling, 4.7-acre grounds, and perhaps nap by your private lake complete with fountains and waterfalls.

Claire Dewar from Sotheby's International Realty has the listing.
