There is nowhere else in the world like Texas.
I love our no-holds-barred attitude when it comes to luxury home construction. If you want detail, high-end finish out, and the perfect combination of luxury and comfort, I can’t think of a better home than this magnificent Prestons Hollow French country estate.
Boots and Bling
Think John Wayne meets Marie Antoinette, boots under your ballgown, and diamonds with your Wranglers. This is one of those jaw-dropping estates that has something unexpected around every corner. If you are moving to Texas and have that mental image of how Hollywood sees us, this 1.26 acre Preston Hollow French country estate will meet every one of your expectations.
Whether you live here already, or can’t wait to get here, it only takes a handful of calls to know what neighborhood you need. One of those calls should always be to the listing agent for this home, Compass Real Estate’s Jonathan Rosen. He always has his finger on the pulse of luxury real estate, so it’s not surprising he was the listing agent for the home when it sold to the present owners.
It was a lovely home when they purchased it back in 2012, but you know how it goes. It’s never really home until you put your stamp on it. And what a stamp we have on this 9,943-square-foot beauty with five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and two powder baths.
“Everything was done to scale.”
“The owners spent a year working on it,” Rosen said. “They gutted it, and even ripped out the old pool and installed a new one. I hadn’t seen the house since they purchased it and had no idea the level to which they would take it. There is an elegant yet comfortable feel and you are not overwhelmed because everything was done to scale.”
Think about that for a moment. Rosen deals in uber-luxury properties every dang day, and even he is impressed!
A Master Suite Fantasyland
The Marie Antoinette-worthy master bedroom is every little girl’s dream. That second set of boots in the family will just have to deal with it, because master bedrooms should be a fantasyland and this one meets every expectation.
If you think it can’t get better, hold on to your Stetson. Look at that master bathroom. Don’t you deserve a fireplace across from your tub and a shower large enough to wash your favorite Palomino pony? I know I do!
Yes, Virginia, that is a two-story party closet with a parlor salon. I have not seen anything like it since the famous Chanel closet at Champ d’Or. Right outside there is a private courtyard spa for girlfriend gatherings. Swoon.
Ample Guest House to Leave You Untrampled
The house is spectacular, but what about guests? Well, how about a two-story, 2,784-square-foot guest house? Not only are there two guest suites and a full kitchen, but there is also a full gym with a steam room.
The outdoor living in this Preston Hollow French country estate is unparalleled. The pool anchors the grounds with a sunken fire pit at one end and a Jacuzzi spa at the other. There is also plenty of outdoor play space for the kids.
“It’s the definition of indoor-outdoor living in Dallas,” Rosen said. “It’s how you want to live.”
This is Texas, folks. When you go big, you know you’re home!
