Got a spare $3.5 million lying around? You can buy the home of Beyoncé's mom, Tina Knowles, and still have a dollar left for a McDonald's breakfast!
The 8,850-square-foot mansion is near the Kinkaid School by San Felipe and Voss. According to its official listing, it:
unfolds on 2.6 acres of rolling lawns, island pool features, ravine views, and a backdrop of natural woodland. A perfect venue for entertaining, the open floorplan includes an enormous great room with soaring ceilings; island chef's kitchen with designer finishes; lavish master suite with fireplace, study, coffee bar, marble-clad, mirrored dual baths; 4 ultra-luxurious bedroom suites; game and media rooms; gym; and guest/pool house.
It sorta says "upscale resort" to us more than it says "home," but we're not experienced in the bootylicious-financed lifestyle.
We're sure it's very nice, and if we didn't think we'd have trouble unloading our current home for $3.5 million, we'd be all over it.
