It was love at first sight for us when we glanced upon this incredible contemporary home designed by Vernon Berry and built by the incomparable craftspeople at Sharif Munir. Every single detail was hand-selected and every idea brought to fruition by some of the absolute best in the business. Of course, the seller chose one of the best Realtors in the business to represent this bright and beautiful jewel box of a contemporary home — Becky Frey. This legendary Realtor with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty put this property on the market just 6 days ago and I am sure there have been people lining up to view this gem like it was the ticket office before a Britney Spears farewell tour.

This home was built to be what a model is for clothing: It looks fabulous draped with the finest things, and shows off your collections with aplomb. Indirect light and frosted glass not only illuminates your paintings, prints, and sculptures, but it also makes the smooth museum-finish walls glow, bringing in a warmth that many contemporary homes lack.
There are views to the backyard throughout the home, which sits on an enviably sized .372 acre lot in one of the most sought-after areas of Preston Hollow. This home has three bedrooms with three full and two half baths. There’s a downstairs master suite living rooms both upstairs and downstairs, and two dining rooms. The floating staircase is a fantastic architectural feature that gives this two-story home some terrific eye candy. With 5,620 square feet, it’s listed for $2,395,000, which comes out to more than $426 per square foot.
The hardwood floors throughout the first floor are beautiful and ethereal feeling. It’s a perfect match for the contemporary decor, which leans Asian with Chinoiserie dressers and tables, and a stone Buddha figure in an unexpected niche. In the kitchen you’ll find white oak cabinetry that is a perfect match for the floors. You’ll find subtle continuity like this throughout the home, which emphasizes style and privacy.
You’ll appreciate the abundance of light that filters in from the outdoor entertaining area through the floor-to-ceiling windows in the downstairs living room. The breakfast area glows thanks to several skylights and a modern pendant light. As for the kitchen itself, you’ll want for nothing with a six-burner stainless steel cooktop, double ovens, built-in microwave and warming oven, dual dishwashers, dual sinks, a wine cooler, a built-in refrigerator and freezer, plus a spacious walk-in pantry. The backsplash is a warm bisque glass mosaic tile that looks perfect with the quartz counters.
The master suite, which is on the first floor, is so beautifully appointed I can’t imagine leaving. You not only have a huge 22 x 15 footprint, but you have amazing views to the backyard through the floor-to-ceiling windows, and access through a sliding glass door. The master bath has two immense vanities on opposite sides of the room – a feature that saves marriages every day. There’s an oversized jetted tub where you can wash away your worries and an adjacent full-sized shower with frameless frosted glass surround. We have to admit that we love the frosted glass in this application. Not only do you not have to worry about spots and film, but you can feel less like you’re in a fishbowl while you’re enjoying the steam.
The grand staircase leads to the upstairs, where you’ll find a wet bar and a second living area. This is a perfect scheme for a family room, where you can kick back and grab a Pellegrino and watch the latest “Game of Thrones” without having to worry about annoying houseguests. It’s from up here that you can also admire the beautiful skylight that runs the length of the home. It’s a fantastic and brilliant design feature to the home, one that really elevates the design. Just off the upstairs living area is a balcony where you can enjoy views of the pool and backyard. Truly, this home is perfect for entertaining and showcasing your collections. You could host parties of all sizes here, and still feel like you are genuinely at home. What do you love most about this stunning Sharif Munir-built home in Preston Hollow?
