The largest residential sale in the Dallas area in 2019 was developer Mehrdad Moayedi’s purchase of a 4.3-acre Strait Lane estate that was once listed for sale at $32 million, according to a survey from the Texas Realtors association. D-FW leads Texas in $1 million-plus home sales, according to Steve Brown, real estate editor at the Dallas Morning News. The 37,000-square-foot estate has 10 bedrooms, 22 bathrooms, a 10-car garage, two basketball courts and a $10 million water park. The house was built starting in 2003 by Dr. Richard Malouf. Moayedi’s Crescent Estates Custom Homes bought the home. The developer plans to update the home and resell it in the spring.
