There's no good frontal picture of this place since it's surrounded by a 12 foot wall, but here's the link to the overhead shot.

This is generally regarded as the most expensive house in Fort Worth, and rumor has it that they're into it for over $75 million. The gardens certainly are impressive. It's on 20 acres in the middle of town and the house is just under 20k square feet.

I live only about a mile from here, but my entire lot could fit in their reflecting pool.

There was once a cover story in the local monthly Fort Worth Texas magazine of the most expensive houses in town, and this was #1 on the list. Shortly after the magazine came out (and was the best selling issue of that magazing to date), the article was pulled from their website. The owner later told me that it's worth his while never to run another similar article.

It works for me... Here's probably the most baller in my area. I can't say for certain it is, but I imagine Les Wexner is the richest man in Columbus.

Works for me...not sure what the issue is.

You can also just type: "4850 crestline road, 76107" into google maps and it will come right up.

This one is right near me. It belongs to the wife of Bill Davidson (billionaire owner of the Pistons and Guardian Industries who died a couple of years ago): http://www.bing.com/maps/?v=2&cp=r2w...63970825&sty=b I remember looking at some public information a few years ago and this particular house had the highest assessment of any residential property in the County. I don't really know what the house looks like besides from the air because I cannot see anything from the road when I drive/run past. But if it's anything like 80% of the rest of the houses right there (especially slightly to the east), it's probably pretty darn nice.

Is that a hockey rink?

What do people do with houses this big, seriously? Unless all of their extended family lives in the house and they have like 20 kids, what's the point? I'm sure they don't go in certain rooms for years at a time...

Yes, during the winter it's a hockey rink; the summertime, it's a tennis court.

He also has quite an extensive art collection, including Kooning, Pollock, Warhol, and Picasso.
