Chateau Des Grotteaux is one of the most beloved and iconic estates in Lakewood. On nearly one acre, R.L. Thornton purchased the unfinished home in 1929 and completed construction. The home was designed after a chateau in Normandy, France. The current owner has worked extensively on the estate's exterior features, while maintaining the continuity of the period the home was constructed. Updates include a privacy wall, custom roof, the second oldest residential pool in Dallas was resurfaced and is now a heated saltwater pool. Other features include sprinkler and mosquito misting systems, numerous statues and sculptures, which all but two will remain with the property. Buyer may update the interior space as desired.
