The Crespi Estate, on Walnut Hill near the Tollway, has a 28,000-square-foot limestone mansion designed in 1938 by world-renowned architect Maurice Fatio. The home, commissioned by Italian Count Pio Crespi who had been sent to Texas to oversee his family’s cotton empire, has a storied past to match its architectural significance.

Mehrdad Moayedi, the CEO of Cen- turion American, which completed the $250 million renovation of the mid-century modern Statler Hotel in Downtown Dallas, bought the 25-acre property for $36.2 million in a December 2017 auction. Previous owner billionaire banker Andy Beal purchased the property for $100 million in 2016.

Here is some of what Maleri McHam reported on the mansion for Radio Texas, Live!:

New homes come up on the market every day, meaning there is often a new most expensive home listed. Today, we’ll be taking a look at the current most expensive Texas mansion in Dallas, listed on Zillow.

How Much is the most expensive home in Texas?

As of the writing of this story, Texas’ most expensive home is listed at $47 million. I can’t even imagine what the monthly pay would be for that, let alone the full price…

This mansion — reminiscent of a castle in style — was built in 1938 and is 27,093 square feet with 10 beds and 17 baths. So you’d certainly have plenty of room for entertaining family and friends. If that’s not enough space, there is also a 3,000-square-foot guesthouse.
There are some great features in the home

The house boasts an entire wine cellar with tasting areas to enjoy; outdoor seating; a fantastic pool; a helipad, and so much more to enjoy. But if I had to pick, I’d say my favorite aspect is the greenscaping and nature surrounding the home. While this Is a very large home, I think it’s balanced out nicely with nature.
