5038 Deloache longshotDo you think they just want to be near Yu Darvish? Pro baseball infielder Michael Young — former, that is, I think — and his wife, Christina Barbosa, have purchased a massive, stately grand house on the fabulous street of Deloache, the same street as Mark Cuban’s humble abode. Yes, THAT Deloache,  in Sunnybrook Estates, Preston Hollow.Michael Young

This is a definite home run for Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s Jeanne Shelton, wowzers! She listed the 5876 square foot home on 1.6 acres, and Lilli Young of Allie Beth represented the Youngs. Selling price was a tad under $2 million ostensibly for the dirt.

5038 Deloache CU frontI have to confess that I have drooled and continue to drool over most of the homes on Deloache — they are grand, stately, and very mansion-esque estates. There is a flurry of uber high net worth building going on over there, with Bella’s new $12 million spec and the recent sale ($6.2 million) of Richard Frank’s house. Of course, the epitome is what Rachel Dedman has created on the 4.12 acres at the corner of Park and Sunnybrook, a stunning 18,392 square foot estate that I think is the most beautiful in Dallas.

This red-brick babe is a traditional, 5,876 square foot, ivy-covered manor marketed as a lot:  “Coveted neighborhood, fabulous 1.6 Acres with Preston Hollow location in Sunny Brook Estates. Wonderful mature oak trees and beautiful grounds. Existing stately home and tennis courts ready for remodel or a rare opportunity to build and be surrounded by premier properties.”

The home has, or soon we will say, had,  formals, five bedrooms, four and a half baths, a study, breakfast room, greenhouse and a tennis court. No pool, as of yet. She was built in 1950.

Looks like the Youngs are coming out of a 7761 square foot house house on Bryn Mawr built in 2006. Might that be going on the market soon? Only their agent, Lillie Young of Allie Beth Allman, knows for sure.5038 Deloache windows
