I Want This House in Forth Worth, With Indoor Basketball, Golf Course View, $5.2M
But what makes this house in the Mira Vista neighborhood stand out is the location atop a hill overlooking a golf course, and extras such as an indoor basketball court and its covered patio cantina bar for rooftop entertaining.
The 11,000-square-foot home at 6721 Foxpoint Road overlooks the fairways of the Mira Vista Country Club with breathtaking views of Forth Worth, the greenbelt throughout the golf course, and beautiful Benbrook Lake. Finding this type of lot with everything the home has to offer would be difficult to match.
The home, named "Oasis," has a Mediterranean feel throughout. It was built in 1998 and can be seen from the golf club as a landmark. The home has been featured on the TV programs "Designing Texas" and "Designing America" on ABC.
Besides the basketball court (left), it has enough extras to keep its owners and guests busy: An outdoor bar with fireplace, TV, keg bar, media room, wine cellar, gym, rockscape diving pool with waterfall, and a dining room.
Finding comparable homes of this size is difficult, but a 12,070-square-foot home on Bella Terra Drive, about four miles away, is for sale for $4.1 million.
The Foxpointe Road home is in the Mira Vista neighborhood, a gated community with 24 hour security. All of the luxury homes in the area are large, although this one is one of the largest.
I think it would be great to live in a house overlooking such a beautiful golf course, along with all that Fort Worth and the Dallas-Arlington area has to offer. If you get tired of golf, the Texas Rangers play baseball in nearby Arlington -- only a 30-minute drive.
