It takes a lot to turn our heads in Dallas, but this Preston Hollow custom contemporary will have yours spinning.
Completed this year, it’s the perfect home for the way we currently live. By that I mean today’s reality is a deep desire to cocoon with our families in a home that is not only comfortable, spacious, and beautiful, but also has every bell and whistle you can dream up.
Many of us are moving college kids back home. Grandparents are tired of missing everyone, so they are coming for extended visits. The need for a home that serves these multi-generational needs is high on the lists of buyers today.
This Preston Hollow custom contemporary has it all, and is sleek and sexy to boot!
Built by Eed Inc. in collaboration with a Parisian architect, it’s not surprising this home has cutting-edge style. Multiple living areas — I counted five — mean a family can spread out. The design allows for great flow and excellent sightlines within the home and to the enormous resort-style pool.
As for sleek and sexy, there are dual staircases, soaring balconies, and high ceilings. A dramatic black Italian marble fireplace separates the formal living and dining rooms. It was positioned to give a small reveal from one room to the other, like a game of architectural peek-a-boo!
Form, Function, and Fluidity
In terms of livability, the design allows you to have separations in the home while still being able to keep eyes on what everyone is doing.
Allie Beth Allman listing agent Steven Rosenthal put it best. “It’s the fluidity of the architecture, that works so well.”
Getting back to sleek and sexy, the walls are museum-finished, the doors are the latest designs imported from Turkey, and there’s an elevator. Frankly today, every two-story home needs an elevator. It’s practical. Who wants to haul luggage or skis up and down the stairs?
An important feature of this home is the two-kitchen concept, one behind the other. This is something we see more and more often in new construction. It serves everyone well, especially serious cooks and those that have religious customs dictating separate kitchens.
Luxe Bedrooms and Sexy Baths
This sleek Preston Hollow custom contemporary home has six bedrooms, six bathrooms, and three powder baths. The principal suite is downstairs, and the adjoining bathroom, my dears, is a trend-starter.
In Europe the two-tub idea is hot. This is largely due to the fact Europeans embrace a calmer and slower pace and because kids always end up in their parents’ bathtubs.
What was done so well in this home is dividing the space upstairs into an east and west wing. Each wing has a dedicated living area. Again, this is down to how well this Preston Hollow custom contemporary serves multi-generational lifestyles.
Staging a Luxury Home is No Longer Optional
Kudos to Rosenthal, an agent with a wealth of experience, for having this home staged.
“Geoge Bass Stage & Design did an unbelievable job staging the house,” Rosenthal said. “He had tremendous input and ordered specific pieces for this house.”
Staging a home in any price range is important, but staging a multi-million-dollar property is essential.
“We had Uphold Designs create some of the custom pieces for this home,” Bass said. “The art, by Keith Johnson, was chosen to add the right touch of drama. We tried to give the home an identity we think most people are looking for in large property like this. There is so much living space and it flows so well. It was a joy to stage.”
If you are looking for a contemporary home that seriously has it all, look no further. Give Rosenthal a call. He has this beauty at 5959 Colhurst Street listed for $3.85 million.
Open House: Sunday, July 26, from 3 to 5 p.m.
