The mansion is located in Pilot Point (Texas) and was listed before at $5.95 million.  The property offers 10 acres of land, a home with 6 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, 4 half bathrooms, a game room and theatre, and the property also has a private guest house and equestrian facilities.

It is not a surprise that Chinese buyers are being targeted; there is a new billionaire being created in China every other day.
