If you want luxury new construction, it’s simple — you move to Dallas. This luxury mansion is precisely what you imagine. Big, bold, and beautiful. It’s a dream home.
You can’t find what Dallas offers in luxury construction anywhere in the world. Our Monday Morning Millionaire is a case in point. Where can you walk into 15,530 square feet, five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and five powder baths on over an acre with enough room to easily park 25 cars? Preston Hollow.
The Celebrity Hot Spot
If you live outside of Texas, well, we feel bad for you because everything really is bigger and better here, especially luxury mansions. But, I digress. Google “Preston Hollow” you’ll get the Wikipedia entry. I love that it is categorized as an “Affluent Neighborhood.” I’m not sure if my editors will let me get away with an “LOL,” but seriously LOL! (Editor’s Note: We let her get away with it.)
Preston Hollow is where former President George W. Bush lives, along with our favorite shark, Mark Cuban. And the fabulous Crespi Estate, just purchased by the Cox family, is here. Enough said. If you have the money, honey, you want to live in Preston Hollow.
And you want to live in this luxury mansion at 5400 Edlen Drive.
Luxury Finishes Everywhere
“You have to see it to believe it,” Allie Beth Allman agent Steven Rosenthal told me. Rosenthal and Allman have this beauty listed for $6.945 million. If you know what property goes for in California, this would be easily $25 million there. The price on this Preston Hollow luxury mansion is what draws not just California buyers, but also global buyers. Edlen is only two blocks long, and every luxury home on the street is on at least an acre. “The drive-up appeal is amazing,” Rosenthal said. “I call it the little Versailles.”
The 2018 build has everything you expect to see in a home of this caliber. From the sweeping, grand entry staircase to the carved limestone fireplaces and groin-vaulted corridors, you will find gorgeous finish-out everywhere. There are double kitchen islands, a man cave, a home theater, and an exercise room just to hit the highlights.
Staged to Perfection
The size of this luxury mansion and the scale of the rooms called for staging. “Most people have no vision whatsoever,” Rosenthal said. “We did not want people to feel lost in it. The dining room, for instance, had to have two dining tables put together because it’s enormous.”
Allman and Rosenthal called in George Bass Stage & Design.
“As stagers, we don’t always have the luxury of time on our side,” Bass said. “In a perfect world, we would order custom furniture appropriate to the scale of the rooms for a home like this. However, we must compensate for time and present a good look, on a scale to make the human factor come alive in the space. The house has a beautiful serene style inside, but the scale felt large without furniture. Staging the home made it more approachable. It’s a Dallas dream home on a beautiful quiet street.”
Now, whose dream home will it be?
