The European villa is on the market for $4.5 million. (Compass)

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.
