No this is not a joke, this is The Crespi-Hicks estate, on 25 bucolic acres just five minutes from downtown Dallas. It recently became the most expensive single-family home for sale in America at a price of $135 million

It has more than 40,000 square feet of living space, including a five-story main house, two guesthouses and a pool house, according to Forbes, and was built for the magnificently named Italian Count Pio Crespi in 1939. The main house is 29,000 square feet of opulence, our friends at Curbed report. And other folks in the neighborhood include business and civic leaders, not least among them former President George W. Bush.

If you’re in the market for buying a new home or just want to see what all the fuss is about you can take a tour of the grounds with listing agent Douglas Newby in the video below.

Feast your eyes, then tell us what you think in the comments. Is this Beauty or shear Folly?
