Iconic Preston Hollow Estate
The Southwest’s premier estate that has hosted presidents, world-acclaimed celebrities and international decision makers on its palatial grounds is the result of legendary architect Robert A.M. Stern’s mastery and constructed by John Sebastian. “Architectural Digest” described it as Stern’s “finest pied-à-terre.”
Within Dallas’ prestigious Preston Hollow neighborhood, the beautifully landscaped nine acres, with its electric gate opening to a driveway and a paved auto courtyard, are simply magnificent with a private lake, an abundance of terraces and gardens, a tennis court with a shaded viewing area and a two-story guest house with its own two car-garage and porte-cochère.
The main house, an “English Regency sifted through American Federal” mansion epitomizes the craftsmanship and materials found only in Europe’s most fabulous palaces.
From the perfection of the wool and silk carpeting on the second level’s living quarters to a breathtaking cantilevered staircase in the black-and-white marble entry hall, every aspect of the property is the stuff of which legends are made. Even the powder room adjoining the conservatory (aka “the Sunday Times reading room”) dazzles with floor-to-ceiling walls of tiny seashells.
The dramatic natatorium opens to the glorious outdoor pool and terrace surrounded by beautifully manicured hedges. Adjacent to the indoor pool is a lavish spa, with steam sauna and two dressing rooms with full bathrooms.
In addition to the professional gym on the third level with its own beauty salon, the main house also includes a stunning five-room master bedroom suite, two ensuite bedrooms, a library with fireplace, a leather-walled billiard room, two loggias, his-and-hers powder rooms, an over-the-top culinary center, a full-service catering kitchen, a cylindrical tempietto breakfast room, four wet bars, four fireplaces, a formal living room, an elegant dining room for twenty guests, and so very much more.
