Texas mansion with hidden waterslide, 2 pools asks $19.99M


This home has its own pool chute speakeasy of sorts. 

A souped-up estate 25 minutes outside Dallas is set to hit the market for $19.99 million on Thursday. 

Located in Southlake, Texas, this property is custom-constructed for fun, serving as both a house and an entertainment venue between its opulent living set up, water park-worthy outdoor features — with a secret waterslide being the cherry on top of two, yes two, pools — and a commercial-grade game room. 

“Our clients poured their heart and soul into this home, which is evident in the materials they used,” Douglas Elliman agents Tracy Tutor and Breah Brown, who hold the listing, told The Post. “The backyard is a playground for everyone to enjoy, with two pools separated by a bridge with a waterfall, and a gorgeous outdoor kitchen for entertaining, all sitting on over 3.6 flat acres.”

The sellers built the space from the ground-up, putting a great deal of energy into ensuring its sprawling 31,000 square feet were laid out to be livable for a family and not overwhelming. With that in mind, the 10,000 square-foot first floor is entirely devoted to hosting groups, be they child or adult, and can be completely closed off from the rest of the house to maintain privacy.

An enormous game room has an enviable array of amusements for all ages, including a foosball table, an indoor glass-enclosed trampoline, a bowling alley, a full-size basketball court, a batting cage and a golf simulator. 

The resort-like grounds also offer a covered terrace and outdoor living room, a jumping rock accenting the pools, a heated 15-foot deep end and that hidden waterslide (take the stairs up inside the circular structure, cross the bridge and voila — slide on down). 

In terms of more mature amenities, there’s also a yoga room, a beauty room and a wine room. 

There are also eight bedrooms — all with ensuite bathrooms — a chef’s kitchen, a separate downstairs prep kitchen, an elevator and three floors of smart home technology.
