The house which was located at 1400 Copper Point Drive, off Preston Road in Prosper, North Texas, was a sight to behold. It featured 10 bedrooms and 10 full bathrooms,  a full indoor basketball court with a scoreboard and sound system, a football field and tennis court, three pools – two indoor, one outdoor and a 12-acre lake.

It also had a gym, barbershop, arcade, bowling alley, a guest house, a theatre with a stage and a sauna. Inside the house was also an awards gallery, a commercial-standard kitchen, a locker room, a yoga studio and a two-story foyer.

The master closet which measures a whopping 3,000 square feet had a sunken sauna tub in the master bath and a turn-table floor in the foyer to the master bedroom.

Outside the house lies an 8-acre lake with a central fountain and private dock, backyard and gardens styles like a resort and cabana which features an outdoor kitchen.

Also, a part of the mansion was a 14-bay garage, with two bays sized to accommodate a boat or RV. In 2014 however, this palatial mansion was put up for sale.
