Collin County Homes : Texas-sized Mansion to hit the auction blocks
One of the most valuable homes in all of North Texas is set to hit the auction blocks late this month. The “Champs D’oR” looks like it could be found in the French countryside as opposed to sitting off Tubberville Road in Hickory Creek, close to Denton. This 48,000 behemoth of a house has been on the market since its completion in 2002, priced ranging from $72 million to $35 million depending on the land included with the sale. The owners of the home are Alan and Shirley Goldfield.
