Strait Lane is one of the most fabulous and famous streets in Dallas. It’s home to a veritable Who’s Who of residents, from Margot and Ross Perot to Jessica and Dirk Nowitzki. They live in some of the city’s most impressive and esteemed estates. Buy a home on Strait Lane and not only have you arrived, you’ve probably arrived in a Learjet.
I’ve found three extraordinary Strait Lane residences represented by Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. They’re within a half mile of each other on the most exclusive stretch of the street in Old Preston Hollow.
Conveniently located only 15 minutes from downtown Dallas, this close-in arrangement is why some of the city’s most distinguished residents make Strait Lane their chosen address.
“Some of Dallas’ top-rated private schools, shopping, and dining are within minutes of Strait Lane and it has estates ranging from 1 to 25 acres — you have a country-like setting in this location,” said Realtor Ryan Streiff with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. “The homes are deeply set back and those on the east side have beautiful creek views. There’s also an off-duty Dallas police officer patrolling these gated properties, offering a very secure setting.”
EXQUISITE ITALIAN VILLA WITH INCREDIBLE DRIVE-UP ON 4 ACRES
Imagine yourself under an Italian sun at 10620 Strait Ln., an exquisite Mediterranean abode sitting on 3.96 acres on Bachman Creek. Designed by sought-after architect Richard Drummond Davis, it offers an expansive floorplan for sophisticated entertaining or expansive family living. This estate has five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, three half baths, six living areas, two dining areas, and 12,984 square feet on two stories, built in 2001.
The deeply sited home creates a dramatic approach — drive through tall iron gates and over a flowing creek to a large stone motor court area where a set of 30-foot double wood doors opens to reveal a temperature-controlled eight-car garage with custom wood sliding doors. This is a fantastic area for hosting guests. The generously proportioned living areas have views out to covered terraces, a large pool, organic gardens, and Texas-sized green spaces. A well-equipped kitchen with refrigerated pantry is adjacent to the great room, formal dining, butlers pantry, and breakfast area. The downstairs master wing has dual baths, closets, and bedrooms. Upstairs are three more ensuite bedrooms, a second study, game room, and exercise room. The dual suite guest home has a private gated entrance off Manson Court and has two additional garage bays.
