House of the Day: Royal Treatment in Texas

There's something distinctly regal about this massive Dallas mansion: It's sprawling, has spires and looms over what looks like a moat (really, it's just a private lake). And, at the price of $12.5 million, you need a royal purse to buy it.

Amenities offered by the castle-like home are also quite courtly. The home's gated 4.6 acres encompass a glass-tiled pool, spa, lakeside tennis court, four-car garage and jogging track. Inside its stucco exterior -- and topped by a metal roof -- are eight bedrooms, nine bathrooms, five fireplaces, an enormous living room and an even more enormous kitchen.
