Champ D’Or. If you have lived in Dallas for at least three years, you know all about the Turbeville Road mansion up in Hickory Creek, near Denton. It’s a 35,000 square foot, French baroque castle meets Plano McMansion dream chateau. This spread has been priced from $72 million to $35 million, and on the market since the day it was completed in 2002, pricing depending on the land tossed into the deal, the market, or the owners’ whim. You could open a boutique agency with all the agents who have listed (and marketed!) Champ, the latest being Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s Joan Eleazer. The owners of the property are Alan and Shirley Goldfield, he the cellphone mogul, she the one who re-created Chanel’s Paris boutique in her master closet: it is outfitted with 18K gold doorknobs, a vanity with an antique chair purchased in France, a $30K custom gold chandelier, made in Florence, a custom iron railing modeled after the famed mirrored one in the Chanel store on Rue de Cambon in Paris, and a $10K custom area rug with the brand’s intersecting-C logo.
