Location: Houston, Texas
The Skinny: Houston is no stranger to strong foreign influences—remember that outrageous Moroccan spread last week? Well today we're taking a look at another Texas native with a foreign twist, this time by way of France. This 14,400-square-foot Norman-style mansion was built in 1935 by architect John F. Staub and recently expanded. Now the house contains six bedrooms, eight baths, and a three-car garage to complement the 18th-century paneling and old-world details. The outsized house and its opulent details come at a seriously steep price: $17.5M.
