New construction just keeps getting better. The Metroplex has some of the best home building talent in the nation and this stunning Preston Hollow custom home is a perfect example of the caliber of that expertise. Douglas M. Jones Custom Homes has created a magnificent transitional mansion at 4309 Woodfin Drive in the Rockbrook Estates neighborhood of Old Preston Hollow, one of the most coveted areas of Dallas.
If you’re new to Dallas, this part of Preston Hollow consists of 19 small neighborhoods, bounded by Midway Road, Walnut Hill Lane, Northwest Highway, and Preston Road. It’s been prime territory for some of the best architects and builders in the country. To give you an idea, Frank Lloyd Wright designed a home on Rockbrook, Max Levy on Glenleigh Court and, of course, Richard Meier on Preston Road. This is where you want to live if a substantial home with fantastic grounds and easy access to downtown are on your top 10 list. And it is on the top 10 list of some notable politicians and sports figures.
This fabulous mansion is listed by luxury specialists Mark Cain and Stan Williams of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate for $2.995 million. The 7,509-square-foot home has four living areas, three fireplaces, five bedrooms, five bathrooms, three powder baths, a game room, media room, study, and a temperature controlled wine storage room. Whew, what more could you need?
This house has you at the curb. “It’s on a gorgeous lot, set back from the street creating a magnificent drive-up,” Cain said. “The floor plan is open, airy, and makes sense. You can just see a large family here celebrating holidays.”
We love the vaulted and beamed family room, open to the second floor. A large double window is set high into the ceiling of this room allowing for a generous flow of light throughout the area and into the kitchen. A wall of glass doors overlooks the backyard creating great flow for entertaining.The kitchen is what all serious cooks crave. A Sub-Zero refrigerator, six-burner Wolf cooktop with griddle, a double oven, a warming drawer, and two Asko dishwashers. The countertops are quartzite with a Carrara marble backsplash. The open floor plan means you can easily keep watch on kids or which party guest needs a refill from the wine room.
Another great feature is the home office center, cleverly placed adjacent to the kitchen. It’s essential to have the office and family command posts next to each other.The first-floor master suite has a limestone fireplace and opens to the back porch. What you don’t see are his-and-hers walk-in closets and a cedar closet.
The remaining four bedrooms and large game room with surround sound are on the second level. Considering there’s a wet bar with a Sub-Zero under-counter refrigerator here, you may seldom see the kids.
You could be celebrating the New Year in this magnificent home. Have a sneak peek on Sunday from 2-4 p.m.
