If you like to host big Fourth of July parties — and I mean big — this Preston Hollow luxury transitional is the house of your star-spangled dreams. Imagine watching fireworks from a water slide!
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a home that was more suited to entertainment. However, if you’re a homebody, you won’t ever want to leave, because this house has it all.
Allie Beth Allman listing agent Alex Perry must have felt like Bill Hader’s Stephon character on Saturday Night Live describing the latest hot nightclub as he told me about the amenities in this home.
“You don’t often find a three-acre estate in Preston Hollow with a creek in front, that is new construction, has a tennis court, theme park water slide, indoor basketball court, and a two-story garage,” Perry said. And yes, it’s tall enough to put in car lifts if you need them.
There are 15,584 square feet to celebrate in, and five huge bedrooms for recovery. We know how important bathrooms are when you have kids or a big party. This Preston Hollow luxury transitional has seven bathrooms and a powder bath!
Of course, there are elegant formal areas, but let’s get serious about where the fun is going to happen. The open-plan family area is enormous. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors allow for some serious indoor-outdoor living. Those doors open to a substantial screened porch with heaters for year-round enjoyment.
And the kitchen is perfection. It’s what I imagine is the dream kitchen for a celebrity chef that enjoys demonstrating their latest dish to pals!
The master bedroom is on the first floor with his-and-hers private steam showers, walk-in closets, and individual studies. More floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors open onto a covered porch overlooking the gorgeous backyard. Be sure to look up at the incredible barrel-vaulted ceiling. In fact, look up in the master bath ceiling as well because the detail is extraordinary. The chandelier and view aren’t bad either! But the steam room takes the cake. I’m a bit worried I’d over steam laying in that Tropitone lounger!
Let’s get back to why this is such a great place for a party. There’s a wine room, tasting room, and a home theater. That two-story garage doubles as an indoor basketball court, an absolutely genius idea.
We all covet privacy, and this Preston Hollow luxury transitional has it in spades. You could entertain the most prominent celebrity or politician here, and your neighbors would never have a clue. The home backs up on two sides to Ursuline Academy. If you have a school-age kiddo, they can just hop the fence, or you can install a lovely concealed door in the hedge!
“The detail in this home is incredible,” Perry said. “The finish out is top of the line. They’ve thought of everything.”
Perry has this incredible Preston Hollow luxury transitional at 9807 Inwood Road listed for $8.25 million.
