Kohler Exterior 1

Last night, my head was filled to capacity at the Kohler showroom grand opening do — invite-only ‘natch. Our own Leah Shafer scored me tix after she alerted us of the impending opening.

First, the Kohler companies — Kohler, Ann Sacks, Kallista, and Roburn — filled my eyes and brain with ideas galore.  Then La Duni filled my taste buds with treats as I walked around the joint. Thankfully, I ran into Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate gal pal Sharon Quist or I’d have been faucet-fondling all on my own, and probably on a watch-list by now. As it was I got to meet design power couple Sherry Hayslip and architect-husband Cole Smith.

french transitional

Oh boy! I’ve got a very first look for you at a French Transitional spec home in the heart of Preston Hollow.

Located at 6019 Prestonshire Rd., this beauty is designed by Richard Drummond Davis and built by Colby Craig, a talented young builder creating dynamic homes in the area. Colby is a third-generation builder with Created by CASON. The attention to detail throughout this property is just amazing.

In fact, I could just move right in!

The home is 7,596 square feet, but it doesn’t feel huge — it feels just right for family, entertaining and making truly beautiful memories. The exterior is pure Austin stone with large windows on a hefty 100-by-188 lot near Walnut Hill Lane and Preston Road. There are five spacious bedrooms, six full bathrooms, two half bathrooms, a media room with kitchen, elevator, three-car garage, and a huge covered patio with fireplace and kitchen, perfect for outdoor living. Really, what else can you possibly need? There are flex spaces and formals and more storage than an airport hanger.

It just was completed in June and is listed by Kay Weeks and Danielle Brasher with Ebby Halliday Realtors for $2.495 million.

“It’s a gorgeous home,” said Weeks. “I’ve represented Colby for about three years now and he is appealing to today’s buyer, using the finest materials and creating open floor plans, nice outdoor living areas, huge closets, wonderful millwork and perfect spaces for entertaining. You really have to see this French Transitional home to believe it — it’s just marvelous.”

I got an advance tour with Colby and Danielle I can’t wait to share with you! Come look at 6019 Prestonshire, and I will point out all the thoughtful details that make this home so very unique like … one for red, one for white, and one for champagne … ha ha come see:

Our Inwood House of the Week from Inwood National Bank is exactly the sort of home Neiman Marcus seeks out as a location for their furniture and linen catalogs. I know because in another life I used to scout for homes exactly like this one. With their ordered facades, perfect proportions and simple elegance of design, Georgian homes have always stood for stability and prestige. This Highland Park Georgian gem at 4529 North Versailles Avenue is a shining example of that traditional, classic look that has such a universal appeal.
