Listing of the Day
Where: El Campo, Texas
Price: $3.5 million
Even if you’re not prone to cliche, you’ll probably buy into the one about everything being bigger in Texas after getting a look at this 40-acre spread that includes the world’s largest residential swimming pool—600,000 gallons, to be exact—according to the property listing. And that’s just one of the perks.
One presumably young-at-heart buyer has the chance to own this sprawling property—built in 2005 and bordered by country roads on two sides—that also comes with a 500-foot lazy river, a 21-foot slide, six waterfalls, and two spas.
If you’re thinking it sounds like paradise, listing agent Sara St. Marceaux agrees, calling it “a true slice of heaven.”
It’s “a place where you can entertain family and friends, or just relax, kick back, and enjoy life,” she said. “The pool area is like nothing you’ve ever seen—absolutely spectacular and perfect for barbecues and parties for people of all ages.”
Inside, you’ll find a gourmet kitchen outfitted with top-of-the-line appliances, granite counters and a butler’s pantry, as well as a movie room, a game room (bar included, for the adults!), and an outdoor kitchen.
All well and good, but the property also has some less obvious gems, including hand-crafted bronze stars made by owner Mike Mobley and his son, as well as a private, 3,300 square-foot guest house on the opposite side of the land.
While Mr. Mobley said he’s unloading because his kids are grown and he’s remarried, he will miss a few key things about the home. Namely? “The family room. We used to sit around in there and watch football, games, and movies, while burning a fire in the fireplace.”
The 7,312-square-foot main house includes five bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, and beach entry. There’s also a 10,000-square-foot storage barn large enough to house a 30-foot boat, a full-size RV, and several cars and bikes. The second floor houses two one-bedroom apartments, each with kitchenettes and bathrooms. The guest house clocks in at 3,300 square feet.
In addition to the eye-popping pool area, a buyer will get an elevator, six fireplaces, as well as Thermador and Viking appliances.
The property feels blissfully removed, but it’s located mere miles from town, and a buyer can helicopter in and out from a nearby airport and land right onto the extended driveway behind the home.
Listing agent: Sara St. Marceaux, President of Houston Portfolio Real Estate for the Lokin Group.
