When you think about what makes a house a home, what are some details that come to mind? Homes are so much more than four walls and a roof, especially when it comes to the everyday life of a family. Thoughtful touches, grand spaces, and awe-inspiring rooms are the backdrop to our memories, and smart, creative design can make or break them. So when we ran across this inspiring Preston Hollow transitional, we couldn’t contain ourselves.

Not only is this beautiful Preston Hollow transitional — our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week — a brand new build, but its stunning spaces feature the deft hand of award-winning designer Traci Connell, notes Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Lisa Marcus Schlachter. Reason enough to fall in love at first sight, and we know you (and your future guests) will!

We love Traci Connell because she took an unusual path to a successful career in interior design and has made a name for herself in a very competitive industry.

Plus, she has an eye for pattern and color that creates unusual, eye-catching spaces that offer so many “wow” moments!

You can walk inside this light-filled home with high ceilings and embrace the warmth, says Schlachter of the spacious two-story Preston Hollow transitional. The first floor is completely open and perfect for entertaining with a large living space, a beautiful fireplace surrounded by warm wood accents, and a gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances and beautiful custom cabinetry. There’s a perfectly designed mudroom just off of the living room, too, which can store your kids shoes, backpacks, and gear without bringing clutter into the main house.

As you can see, Connell put an emphasis on adding patterns, color, and shapes in interesting places with designer tile and wallpaper. And while we love the drama of all-white kitchens and rooms, the addition of wood grain in the fireplace surround, on the beautiful hardwood floors, and with the custom base cabinetry throughout, adds a welcome amount of warmth to the 4,381-square-foot Preston Hollow transitional. 

The master suite is on the first floor and features a spa bath with tons of storage, a gorgeous Critten window shower with dual heads, and sexy copper and oiled brass hardware that add an unconventional foil to the room. Again, the addition of beautiful wood cabinetry adds even more warmth to the space. Connell is a genius, that’s for sure. There are three additional bedrooms upstairs, as well as a family space, which could be a fourth bedroom. And Schlachter notes that there’s an additional 336-square-foot back house above the detached garage that can be used as a bedroom or gym, and is secured by a gated entrance. 

With four bedrooms, five full baths, and a beautifully landscaped backyard and all the smart home bells and whistles you could desire, this Preston Hollow transitional has everything you could want or need, all in an exceptionally stylish package thanks to Connell. As Schlachter said, this home is “a new build like no other.”
