House of the Day: Romantic Castle in the Heart of Texas

Like a castle out of a fairy tale, this ethereal "Richardsonian Romanesque" home sits on one of the largest lots in Dallas County's Highland Park. Made mostly of granite, with exquisite porcelain interior detailing, and with lush views over a scenic greenbelt, the $6.95 million residence known as Coram Deo (Latin for "before God"), boasts seven bedrooms and 9½ baths.

The sprawling, three-story mansion in suburban Dallas includes all the design features and amenities of a modern domicile, as well as plenty of natural light. The interiors are opulently appointed, with marble fixtures and ornate woodwork. Outside, the property features a sweeping patio and a two-level pool with a magnificent, cascading waterfall.
