Luxury estates in Texas are getting the auction treatment. The latest is a luxury estate in Collevyville, along with one in Strawn that will sell without reserve to the highest bidder.
The Colleyville estate, at 5102 Montclair Drive is a 16,132-square-foot neoclassic estate with seven bedrooms, seven full-bathrooms and four half-bathrooms.

A gourmet kitchen has Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, including three convection ovens and a six-burner gas stove. A retractable wall also conceals an additional cooking and storage area, while a large center island offers additional counter space, a sink and a built-in microwave.
The master suite has a wood burning fireplace, an elevated four-poster canopy bed, two walk-in closets, a private exercise room and a bathroom with barrel-vaulted ceilings, a free-standing Jacuzzi tub, an oversized shower, and his and hers vanity sinks.
Another notable feature of the estate is a long corridor with a double barrel vaulted ceiling that leads to entertaining and leisure rooms, including a screening room with theater-style seating for 12 and a game room with a billiards table, full kitchen and wet bar.
Also on the property is a one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest house with a full kitchen; a swimming pool with two attached inlaid stone spas; a seven-car garage; and a regulation size tennis court that sits adjacent to the main home.
