The long-standing real estate adage that the kitchen and bathrooms sell a property has never been more true than in these three DFW luxury homes represented by Ebby Halliday Realtors. I’ve found three standout houses across DFW that impress with amazing kitchens, luxe bathrooms, and high-end finishes in every room. You have to see this amazing custom work to believe it!
MODERN, ELEGANT PRESTON HOLLOW CUSTOM BUILD BY SCOTT BRIGGS
Sitting on two thirds of an acre on a Preston Hollow lakefront lot, the newly constructed Scott Briggs Custom home at 11133 Eastview Cir. is an elegant transitional property. It has five bedrooms, six full bathrooms, one half bath, two living areas, two dining areas, and 6,374 square feet on two stories, completed in 2017.
The oversized family room opens to a modern marvel of a kitchen with Thermador appliances and enormous island fashioned from beautiful soapstone. Kitchen equipment includes a built-in ice maker, built-in refrigerator-freezer, commercial grade range, double ovens, dual dishwashers, and a warmer oven drawer. Love that floating light fixture above the island and the unusual tile backsplash. So pretty! A nearby butler’s pantry offers additional storage and functionality.
I love the master ensuite bathroom with its herringbone floor tile treatment, dual floating vanities, contemporary soaker tub, huge frameless glass shower with body sprays, and dual custom walk-in closets.
This home was listed July 18 by Dennis Hammett and Terri Briggs with Ebby Halliday Realtors for $2.695 million. For more information or to schedule a showing, call Dennis at 214-641-9815 or Terri at 214-578-5578.
PLANO CUSTOM BY SHARIF-MUNIR IN GUARD-GATED NORMANDY ESTATES
Normandy Estates is an exclusive gated community with a guard, located near West Spring Creek and Tennyson parkways in Plano. The home at 6816 Dupont Dr., a Sharif-Munir custom build completed in 2016, is all about clean line and high-end finishes. It has four bedrooms, five full bathrooms, one half bath, four living areas, two dining areas, and 6,736 square feet on two stories.
A huge chef’s kitchen features professional-grade appliances, including a built-in ice maker, built-in refrigerator-freezer, double dishwashers, an indoor grill, and double ovens, and a Wolf six-burner gas cooktop. There are granite countertops and custom cabinets, as well as a beamed ceiling that reflects the design of the family room, which the kitchen opens to with clean lines of sight. A nearby butler’s pantry adds functionality and even more storage to this fantastic room.
The bathrooms are everything you’d expect in a luxury Plano home, plus some! The downstairs master’s ensuite is a dream with marble inlaid floors, a contemporary soaker tub, walk-in shower, dual vanities, and wonderful storage options. Other bathrooms are also dreamy with beautiful features.

NEWLY LISTED BLUFFVIEW BEAUTY WITH SLEEK, CONTEMPORARY LOOKS
If a contemporary custom build is on your wish list for a luxury home, then feast your eyes on the Phillip Jennings Custom Homes property at 4430 Taos Rd. Located in Bluffview Estates, this beauty was completed last month and offers exquisite details, exceptional amenities, and one-of-a-kind finish-outs. This home has five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, one half bath, three living areas, three dining areas, and 6,601 square feet on two stories.
The dining and living rooms share one grand space with the kitchen, which has views of the backyard through a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows. Gorgeous quartzite countertops impress, as do the luxe amenities, like double ovens, dual dishwashers, high-end gas cooktop, built-in ice maker, and built-in refrigerator-freezer. That island is massive and fabulous! Nearby is a passthrough butler’s pantry accessible from the dining and living rooms.
