Among all the magnificent showplaces in Preston Hollow, this much-sought-after estate is truly exceptional for its expansive design, its loving detail, and its European flair. Situated on four acres of exquisitely manicured grounds, gardens, and charming walkways, the 12,984-square-foot, tile-roofed Mediterranean-style villa was designed by the legendary Richard Drummond Davis with the highest regard for authenticity and craftsmanship.
That regard is evident immediately upon arriving at the five-bedroom, five-bathroom home—via a secured front gate and bridge leading to the grand entry motor court, of course—guiding your travels to the custom, hand-carved, arched-top mahogany front doors. The first in a long series of statement features, Ssuch detail is a hallmark of the two-story residence—from the entryway's winding staircase, travertine floors, Pecky Cypress ceilings, and custom-made candlelight sconces to the Cut Stone veneer walls, oak hand-scraped oak floors, and multiple carved stone fireplaces found throughout the mansion.
The first floor's magnificent formal dining and living rooms—the latter distinguished by a tall wooden ceiling with hand-painted purlin beams—give way to two spacious adjoining master bedroom suites befitting a queen and her king. Each sports an oversized California closet, five-inch oak flooring, a full bath with heated floor, and—as in all the home's rooms—stunning views of the outdoor verandas and the lush greenery beyond. The first story continues with a family room (its high ceiling is hewn from exposed rustic North Carolina tobacco-barn beams); a study; a secured, temperature-controlled wine room capable of presenting 2,000 bottles; and a state-of-the-art chef's kitchen with refrigerated pantry, Miele appliances, oversized mobile island, and Subzero refrigerators.
