Mediterranean Spanish Revival

This Mediterranean Spanish revival in Old Preston Hollow is a just-completed custom home with grand spaces and luxe amenities.

You’ll find something new in Old Preston Hollow with a freshly completed Mediterranean Spanish revival with a posh address.

Just completed in December 2016, the sprawling home at 5326 Edlen Dr. is one surprising space after another in its 13,000 square feet. Sitting on just over one acre with dual gated entries, it was designed by architect Lloyd Lumpkins, who has a reputation for unsurpassed quality and echoes of eclectic European architecture in his work.

Located near Walnut Hill Lane and Inwood Road, it’s in a coveted part of Old Preston Hollow, an area named for its wooded areas with creeks and hollows. Today, arching shade trees and proximity to the Bachman Branch creek keeps that sense of natural beauty.

This manse has six bedrooms, two of which are dual masters; eight full bathrooms; three half baths; and a library.

“This extraordinary residence offers a two-piece clay-tile roof with copper flashing, a flexible floorplan, premium finishes throughout, a first-floor master suite, five fireplaces, an elevator, a seven-car garage, and a one-car lift,” said listing agent Patricia Stampley with Ebby Halliday Realtors. “Featuring quality construction and exceptional attention to detail, this property is ideal for everyday living and for entertaining on a grand scale.”

Don’t miss the open house this Sunday, April 2, from 2-4 p.m. Here’s a sneak peek!

4005 Gillon a

Deep in the heart of Highland Park near Beverly and Lakeside drives, I’ve found an incredible home, being offered for a steal,  on almost half an acre of prime real estate. This is the best part of Highland Park, and this home doesn’t disappoint.

The Greek Revival masterpiece at 4005 Gillon Ave. has Georgian Colonial influences in its stately architecture. Built in 1973, the house is a three-quarters replica of an 1853 mansion the owner grew up loving in Canton, Miss. The façade conveys a grandeur that continues inside.

This home has three bedrooms, thee full bathrooms, one half bath, four living areas, and 7,292 square feet on two stories.

“The space is there for anyone who might want to update it, but the home is perfect for those who appreciate the finer features of a bygone era,” said David Sparling with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, who is listing the house. “This property is two doors down from Lakeside Drive and in the best part of Old Highland Park.”

4005 Gillon was built as an homage to that American era which is crystallized in our identity by Southern Belles attending elaborate balls. It was in the spirit of that gilded age that this home was conceived and built.

This is a home that was made to impress, both inside and out, where you could host just a few friends for an intimate dinner or half of the town for a black-tie affair, without missing a step. It imposes unto its guests an air of sophistication and grace.

5347 Montrose IHOTW

This is exactly how we imagine Kate and William living in Anmer Hall, the young royals’ country house. They’ve undoubtedly created a traditional, timeless, warm, and tasteful home — just like this charming cottage in Greenway Parks. It has that classic European style passed down from generation to generation. And it’s so refreshing to see a home that actually looks like a home, with nooks and crannies, detailing, color, and pattern. (more…)
