It seemed as if, during the turn of the 21st Century, every builder under the sun wanted to try their hand at designing a Mediterranean. What we ended up with was a bunch of half-done, mish-mash homes that all sort of look the same. It gave the style a bad name, that’s for sure.
But this Mediterranean is helping win people back to the style, with its unique facade and fabulous interiors. Perfect for today’s luxury homebuyers, this stunning example of Mediterranean done right at 5350 Falls Road in Old Preston Hollow is listed with Patricia Stampley of Ebby Halliday Realtors for $5.25 million. You can see all of the details that make this home the perfect warm embrace to the end of your day at her open house on Sunday, April 24, from 2 to 5 p.m.
Of course, I got an advance tour with Patricia herself!

Situated on a spacious gated lot, the home features six bedrooms, seven baths, five half-baths, six expansive living areas, a pool, large outdoor entertaining areas, plentiful green space, and a four-car garage.
“This extraordinary, 2016-built residence offers a flexible floor plan, pier-and-beam foundation, premium finishes, walls of floor-to-ceiling glass windows, exquisite marble, millwork, and endless amenities,” Stampley said. She’s no stranger to luxury listings, offering thousands of properties to buyers over the last three decades. “Offering quality construction and exceptional attention to detail, this property is ideal for everyday living and for entertaining on a grand scale.”
The 10-foot iron front doors open to a foyer with extensive Carrera marble, a sweeping spiral staircase and a hand-laid Carrera marble dome ceiling.
The great room features herringbone oak flooring, a floor-to-ceiling cast-stone wall and fireplace, a 24-foot ceiling, and floor-to-ceiling arched windows overlooking the pool and backyard. The dining room offers herringbone oak flooring, a wall of windows, a hand-forged custom chandelier with crystals, a butler’s pantry and a circular, climate-controlled wine room.
The spacious chef’s kitchen features Taj Mahal quartzite countertops, inlaid Calcutta herringbone backsplash, a commercial Wolf gas range with pot filler, two ASKO dishwashers, two built-in ovens, and a side-by-side SubZero refrigerator and freezer. It’s one of the most amazing kitchens I’ve ever seen!
The library offers Alder wood paneling and beams, a cast-stone fireplace, hand-scraped oak flooring, Rainforest marble and two walls of Alder wood bookcases. The chandelier, though, makes a tremendous visual impact. It’s one of the many designer light fixtures painstakingly selected to fit in this tremendous home.
“The exquisite, approximately 2,000-square-foot master suite includes two separate sitting areas, spacious dual baths, a cast-stone fireplace with hand-cut inlaid marble surround, a large master closet with island, a coffee/wine bar, and beautiful views of the pool and fountain,” Stampley said.
That closet is just perfect, and will add a touch of glamour to your everyday ritual thanks to the chandelier. No detail was overlooked in this stunning master suite. I also love the mirrored cabinetry in the “hers” side of the master bath. What a fabulous detail!
The backyard features a covered cast-stone patio, two large play areas and a heated pool with spa and lion’s head fountain.
Just a few of this exceptional Old Preston Hollow estate home’s additional amenities include dual gated entries, a media room, a craft/workout room, detailed millwork, and museum-quality finishes throughout.
