Fabled Fortress
6941 Gaston ave. $965,000.

Chateau des Grotteaux, or “House of Caves,” was built in 1929 when Lakewood was a new development on the outskirts of town (weekend cottages still surrounded White Rock Lake). Originally built for Ed Cox, the house was purchased by developer R.L. Thornton, and, during his tenure as mayor, rumors proliferated about a cave to White Rock Lake from which whiskey (then illegal) could be brought to the house for city leaders’ power meetings. The 4,364-square-foot house includes four bedrooms, three baths, billiards room, two fireplaces (including a mantel rumored to have belonged to Paul McCartney), turret rooms, beams, leaded glass windows, round dining room, and pool.
