This privately gated villa set far west in the hilly expanse of the Seven Oaks neighborhood, 9120 Brookhurst Cove is a villa that will whisk you away to European paradise without ever having to leave the Lone Star State.
Full of lavish finishes and curved iron accents, the custom-built, five-bedroom, five-bathrooms and three half bathrooms home is spread across 6,867 square feet. The privately gated dream could be yours for a listing price of $4.5 million.
The front door will bring you to a grand entrance that leads into the formal living room, connected to an open-plan kitchen and dining rooms—one inside, one outside overlooking the greenery.
An entertainer's dream, the kitchen juxtaposes light wood on the dual marble islands—one for prep, one can be used as a nook—with the dark cabinetry and adjacent window panes. Just steps away is a wet bar, complete with a wine fridge and rack, with easy access to the dining terrace.
When the party moves outside, guests can lounge by the pool and spa, one of the many fire pits, become a grillmaster in the outdoor kitchen or shoot some hoops at the private court.
The magic of the villa doesn't end there—going up the cascading staircase will lead you to a catwalk and family room that overlook your metaphorical castle. Another wet bar, nook and wine room await upstairs, acting as your personal concession stand for the movie theater next door.
When it's time to finally hit the hay, the master suite's opulent chandelier will welcome you to the spa-style bathroom just steps away. Double sinks bookend the free-standing claw foot tub and steam shower and back in the bedroom, the floor to ceiling windows will lull you to sleep and gently awaken you.
The grind never stops though, so there is also a home gym and office for those work-from-home days.The listing is held by agent Dara Allen with Compass.

An Austin-based firm that’s established itself as one of the top Bitcoin miners in North America is set to go public.
On Thursday, the company, known as Core Scientific Inc., announced it’s now trading on Nasdaq as $CORZ. The stock opened at $9.74 per share then peaked at $10.48. The company was assigned a $414 million market cap.
"As one of the largest publicly-traded blockchain infrastructure providers and digital asset miners in North America, we are focused on growing our capacity, defending and securing the blockchain ecosystem and building long-term shareholder value," CEO Mike Levitt said.
As reported by Yahoo News, investors approved a plan for a public debut through a $4.3 billion merger with special purpose acquisition company Power & Digital Infrastructure Acquisition Corp. The deal arrives as Austin sees its crypto scene soar, with increased activity in the NFT economy and groups pooling their money together through DAOs.
Core Scientific was established in 2017 and relocated its headquarters from Seattle to Austin last year. It has a site in Downtown Austin on 106 E. 6th St. and data centers in Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina and North Dakota. More than 100 full-time employees are in the U.S., but it's unclear how many are in Austin.
Now, they say they are the biggest Bitcoin miners based on processing power, with claims that the combined mining capacity on the Bitcoin network exceeds that of competitors. And SEC filings from earlier this month show it's in the process of acquiring Blockcap, Inc., which moved to Austin last year.
The company describes itself as a leader in high-performance, carbon-neutral blockchain infrastructure in an industry that catches flak for its energy use.
Aside from mining, the company provides internet hosting services for other large-scale miners. In fact, it derives about half its revenue by helping big customers mine, a quality seen in what’s often referred to as an “institutional-grade” miner.
Looking ahead, Core Scientific seems optimistic about the year ahead even as Bitcoin falls from its all-time high.
“We’ve worked hard to lay the groundwork that will enable us to achieve our 2022 projections,” Levitt told Yahoo News. “Our objective is to be the best. Being the best means doing all that we can for our business, the industry in which we participate and for the Bitcoin network.”
