Wow! I had absolutely no idea!
That’s what listing agents Ira Archer and Irmgard Arthur hear when people visit 4665 Meadowood Rd., also known as the Pearl of Preston Hollow.
So what’s the amazement about? How about a 7,485-square-foot, five-bedroom mansion with immaculate style on 1.78 acres with a dramatic drive up, tennis court, swimming pool, guest house, and four-car garage? And all of that in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Dallas.
“This house is the whole package on almost two acres in Old Preston Hollow,” said Irmgard’s assistant Ira Archer. “The owners renovated everything in mansion with an eye for soft contemporary elegance and style that’s light and bright.”
To top it all off, they’ve reduced the price to $4.550 million (let’s compare that to the $36.2 million Mehrdad Moayedi paid for nearby Walnut Place recently and tell me this isn’t the deal of the decade!).
At a recent open house, brokers showed big interest in this one-of-a-kind property. And of course we had a StaffParty there last month. Let’s take a look around, shall we?
I just love the classic Williamsburg style of this architecture. It’s easy on the eyes and those four symmetrical columns exude gracious southern living after a drive up that measures 446 front feet though a gated entrance with the same red brick as the house.
Now, as lovely as the exterior is, it doesn’t prepare you for the stunningly renovated interior. I see a lot of gorgeous houses and this one truly impresses with five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, two half baths, four living areas, three dining areas, three fireplaces, and gourmet kitchen, all redesigned with clean lines and a modern feel.
“Large windows give beautiful views of trees, birds, and lush landscaping from many of the spacious rooms, making it a relaxing family home,” said Arthur. “That is coupled with its size and the flow of the floorplan, creating fantastic entertaining possibilities inside the home and outside, too.”
The kitchen is certainly the heart of a home, whether you’re staying in for a quiet evening or hosting a festive fête for fifty and it doesn’t disappoint! The kitchen is enormous with a center island, breakfast bar, dual sinks, several stations, butler’s pantry, two pantries, Silestone quartz and marble countertops, three dishwashers, and two stoves. Of course, appliances are all top-of-the-line, like Miele, Wolf, Subzero. A nearby breakfast room offers more storage and stations.
The formal living room leads to an elegant round room with full bar and glass overlooking the manicured grounds – I would love to drink a glass of wine in here and relax! The gentleman’s redwood study is nearby, private yet accessible, with enough shelves for a law library.
Off the kitchen is an oversized family room with its own powder room and another dining area. This room leads up to the secondary stairway to a media room/game room with magnificent property views, DirectTV, state-of-the-art sound system, and fast internet access.
The spacious upstairs master suite is big enough to offer a sitting area with great views of the property, as well as a cozy fireplace and a massive renovated bathroom with dual everything. You could get lost in the walk-in closets and there’s an oversized frameless glass shower, dual sinks, jetted tub, and tons of storage. The four other private bedrooms are all ensuite, all updated, perfect for kids to have their own space. The upstairs media room is a perfect area for the whole family to congregate and enjoy each other’s company.
So that’s the inside of the mansion, enough to make you whip out your cell phone and speed dial your Realtor. But we haven’t seen the lush backyard with a newly resurfaced swimming pool, professional, lighted tennis court, and 1,008-square-foot guest house. That party house is a one-one with a front porch, kitchenette, dining area, and climate-controlled wine closet.
