Crafted by a trio of notable design professionals, this $8,795,000 chateau's pastoral trappings are deceptive: The 10,806 square-foot residence is actually set in Dallas' posh Preston Hollow neighborhood.

The grounds -- which offer a stunning vista through its iron gates -- are the work of reputed landscaper Harold Leidner, while the intricacies of its stone, wood and marble interior are by well-known designer Richard Trimble.

Built by the Sebastian Construction Group, the property has a cobblestone driveway, seven-car garage, pool, balcony, covered porches and patio.
