The Pearl of Preston Hollow: Grounds, Guest House, Glamour, Gorgeous!

Share News:

The Crespi/Hicks/Beal estate may be on 25 plus acres down the road, but I can offer you the Pearl of Preston Hollow: almost two acres, 7485 square feet, a pool, tennis court, and full guest house for far less than the $36.2 million Mehrdad Moayedi paid for Walnut Place.

Try 4665 Meadowood Road, a circular road unlike any other in Preston Hollow, that comes out of a Robert Frost poem. The road runs south of Walnut Hill, just west of the Dallas North Tollway. Here you will find a who’s who of neighbors (including TWO famous plastic surgeons!) and one of the most graceful homes in Dallas.

And the home is listed with Irmgard Arthur of Allie Beth Allman & Associates for $4,750,000.

This is a home of sheer elegance, of good stock. In fact, if a home could wear pearls, this home would be drenched in Mikimoto’s.

From the exterior, the classic Williamsburg red brick is timeless and easy on the eyes. And don’t get me started on columns: I simply love them. Nothing, nothing spells “gracious southern living” like four symmetrical columns. And you might think the interior of the home would match the Williamsburg exterior? Truth is, the bones in this home are so fine that it adjusts to any design style,  from the most conservative traditional to screaming modern.

And the drive-up appeal is storybook — just part of the total elegant package.

The interiors have been completely updated in transitional contemporary lines, yet every aspect of traditional charm was retained. Large windows that are original to the 1951 dynasty of the home are huge, spanning and double paned. They afford stunning views of the treed, wooded and flowered property from every angle, in every room.

The foyer is classic with elegant staircase up, and a hall leading to the kitchen and family room, formals to the left, dining to the right. The kitchen is enormous with a huge center island, several stations, and loaded with top of the line appliances like Miele, Wolf & Sub-Zero. Classic counters are marble & Stile Quartz. There are not two dishwashers but THREE, not one stove but TWO. There is a large breakfast room with more storage and stations. The formal living room leads to an elegant Round Room with full bar and glass overlooking the gorgeous grounds, perfect for entertaining. The gentleman’s redwood study is nearby, private yet accessible, with enough shelves for a law library.

Off the kitchen is a huge family room with it’s own powder room and another eating area. This room leads up to the secondary stairway to a media room/gameroom with magnificent property views, Direct TV, state of the art sound and fastest internet access.

The upstairs master suite, like every room in the house, has been updated with massive closet space and a stunning his and her bath, each spa quality, enough room for a massage table or two. The four other private bedrooms are all en suite, all updated.

The home boasts a graceful guest house behind the sparkling lap pool that is 1008 square feet and complete with updated kitchen and bath. Located at the end of the property, it does not cut into the sprawling 1.78 acre grounds.

The tennis court is regulation sized and equipped with lights for night time playing.

And you can enjoy this magnificent property this Thursday at an exclusive Staff Meeting event. Join us as we explore every nook and cranny of 4665 Meadowood Road in the heart of Old Preston Hollow. 4:30 to 7:30 pm. Space is limited — RSVP now

And maybe, yes, wear your pearls!
