Imagine the most idyllic villa perched upon a Tuscany hill. But there’s no need to dream or journey afar. Located in Preston Hollow, this amazingly spectacular palazzo’s grounds boast a courtyard with an elevated terrace and a fireplace overlooking a landscaped oasis with a fountain, a heated pool and a spa for entertaining. On the other side of the residence, with its red-tile roof and wrought-iron balconies, is a spacious serenity garden surrounded by towering trees and shrubbery.
The Mediterranean influence flows throughout the entire two-story residence, thanks to its design supported by its stone and hardwood floors, remarkable ceiling treatments, columns, stucco and stone walls, three interior fireplaces, multiple staircases and countless arched windows and doors that allow light and breezes to flow throughout.
On the ground level, the central hallway separates the study, the formal living room and dining room from the dramatic two-story great room. Centrally placed along the hallway is a wet bar with a temperature-controlled wine room that can store 1,000 bottles.
Adjacent to the dining room and great room is the culinary center equipped with a Wolf gas range, a Bosch dishwasher, Thermador ovens, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, warming drawer, an island with prep sink, a silver closet, breakfast nook, walk-in pantry and a fully equipped butler’s pantry.
Along a side hallway leading to the three-car garage are the house manager’s office, a full-service laundry room and an ensuite guestroom.
In another wing of the home is the fabulous master suite highlighted by a sitting room, his-and-hers closets and a luxurious bathroom with a tiled alcove with a Zuma tub and a shower with multiple showerheads. It even has a private access to the courtyard.
The wonders only continue on the upper level with four more oversized ensuite guestrooms, a sitting room with a balcony, a game room with wet bar, a media room, a wrapping room and a gym.
