Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Multi Million-Dollar Listings — Fit for a King and Queen
Everyone is buzzing about the royal wedding – it’s hard not to miss all the news and rumors circulating around Kate Middleton and Prince William’s nuptials today. According to a recent report, the royal couple will also be residing at Clarence House, where Harry lives, after returning from their honeymoon, because they haven’t yet decided where they want to settle. As a real estate company, the first thing that springs to our mind is, let’s find this couple a home! Even if they don’t choose to live in the U.S., Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage has plenty of listings fit for royalty — perhaps a perfect vacation home for the newlyweds with guest quarters for Harry, so the couple can pay back the favor.
Currently there are 37 homes on the market in Dallas that are listed between $5 million and $10 million and nine residences that are listed at $10 million and up. In Mclendon Chisholm, the glamorous couple looking for a get-a-way from the chaos could buy a great vacation home at this young and contemporary, Texas castle-style home. Listed with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s, Vicky Chesna, for $1.995 million, 5-bedroom, 7,925-square-foot Energy Star certified residence is designed and decorated with the most exquisite finishes throughout. It is very private, with oversized iron entry doors, a library, media room with concession area, 6-car garage and enviable master suite with large custom walk-in closets (perfect for all Kate’s clothes). The estimated monthly payment is suited for a royal budget at $10,194 per month with $199,500 down.
If 7,925-square-feet of luxury in Texas won’t do, the exquisite $100 million, Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate listing in Windermere, FL, listed by The Lorraine Barrett Team, could be another option for the future king and queen. This estate named Versailles has been described as “the largest modern day palace under construction in America.” Designed to mimic the royal residence of Louis XIV of the 17th century, the 90,000-square-foot palace, located on 10+ acres, features a large boat house, formal gardens, a gatehouse, two tennis courts, 10 satellite kitchens (perfect for Kate who enjoys cooking), a 2-story wine cellar and a fitness center with spa facilities. In addition, the residence has plenty of sporting activities to keep William busy, a two lane bowling alley, an indoor roller rink, a video arcade and a baseball field. The estate also has a children’s wing, a movie theatre, an activity and game room and a 12-foot, two-sided aquarium — talk about a home fit for a king and queen!
Middleton, a British “commoner,” could be living it up. According to Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate’s home listing website, FloridaMoves.com, if the couple put down 20% on the $100 million dollar home, with a 30-year mortgage and an interest rate of 6.5% the monthly payment would be $511,106 per month. Not too shabby for a commoner.
Kate and William won’t have a problem making friends from their native land if they move to the U.S., according to the National Association of Realtors of Florida’s foreign homebuyers, 15% are from the United Kingdom.
For all romantics who still haven’t found their prince or palace, don’t worry, there are still four single princes on the market: Prince Andrea of Monaco, Prince Harry of Wales, Prince Carl Philip of Sweden and Price Wenzeslaus of Liechtenstein. There are also plenty of estates of royal caliber on the market too. So, even if you don’t marry a prince your dreams of owning a palace fit for a King or Queen can still come true.
