The new owners of this 9,200-square-foot home won’t just be living in a Tudor mansion. They’ll also get to sip their morning coffee in a place featured on the cover of Robb Report magazine.

The house, built in 1926 for Arthur Kramer, features eight bedrooms and eight and a half bathrooms on a 1.2-acre property. It was designed by English architect Alfred Bossom, who is also credited with designing Dallas’ first skyscraper, the Magnolia Building.

After designing many notable structures throughout the United States, such as the Great Southwest Building (formerly Petroleum Building) in Houston, Bossom returned to England and in 1931 became a Member of Parliament.

A sum of $6.5 million will buy the house at 6835 Westlake Ave., its furnishings and antiques and a rug rumored to once have been placed at the White House. The Tudor also has a basement and a pool.
