Cliff Hanging Luxury Lakeside Home Demolished

Posted: Updated:

Lake Whitney, TX- A luxury lakeside home in Texas was hanging off a cliff and about to fall into the water earlier this week.

That house was demolished by a controlled fire Friday afternoon.

The house had been dangling over Lake Whitney, just south of Fort Worth, for several days.

Thursday's emergency meeting determined the fire was the best way to get rid of the crumbling home.

Part of the home had collapsed earlier this week after the limestone supporting it gave way to erosion.

There appeared to be a large crack in the cliff the home was built on, with one section already giving way.

Luckily, no one was currently living in the house.

The home, built in 2007 is about 40,000 square ft., and worth $800,000.

The homeowners were financially responsible for the home's firey demolition.
