Huge fan of Selena Gomez? Bought all the albums, have a poster on your wall, her face as your screensaver? Well how about living in her house?
Gomez, it’s important to clarify, won’t be living there too – she’ll be somewhere else. But she has certainly lived there in the past, and may yet live there again in the future (although probably only after you’ve moved out). You’ll be close to her in spirit, if not physical proximity, and more to the point, it’s a very nice house.
Ten-thousand square-foot of house to be exact, with an extra 1.5 acres of prime Texas land thrown in. You’ll be enclosed in the very exclusive Montserrat enclave on the west side of Fort Worth (gated, naturally), and we’d hazard that at least one or two of your neighbours might have recognisable faces.
What do you get for the $2.7m asking price? According to the good people at Christie’s International Real Estate the house is designed to replicate the great châteaux of southern France.
Typically we’d edit the press release down, pick out the salient points, but if you’re reading this then you probably want the whole thing. Here goes:
“The home is built entirely of stone in hues of gray and blue, and is flanked by pillars opening to a paver-tiled drive and European motor court. A meandering path from the motor court leads to a courtyard front entry, appointed with a cascading fountain. Upon entering the home, an oversized iron and glass entry door and a magnificent staircase with wrought-iron railings make an immediate statement. Just past the entrance, an airy, light-filled interior awaits. The open flow of the public spaces is masterfully executed with lovely columns linked by archways and groin vaults. Impressive beams highlight vaulted ceilings, further accentuating soaring ceiling heights and a unique architectural design.”

“Other interior features include an elegant formal dining room, perfect for entertaining, accented by a custom mantel framing an oversized fireplace, centered between bookshelves of soothing sea green. A sunken formal living room is graced with travertine floors. The kitchen, an epicurean dream [our italics], provides work space and appliances for the most discerning of cooks. There is also a study/music room, an eight-seat movie theater with candy bar, and a home gym. The game room with bar provides ample space for billiards, poker, and shuffleboard. Completing the main residence is a five-star master suite and bath with enormous walk-in closet, a luxurious guest suite, a crafts room, a gift-wrapping room, and three well-placed laundry rooms.”
TLDR: it’s a nice pad. You should buy it.
