Preston Hollow Mediterranean

If you fancy a discreet neighborhood, one that the Perots, Troutts, and Nowitskis are happy to call home, you are in luck. If you’d like an elegant Preston Hollow Mediterranean estate for entertaining, this is it. If you want one of the most secure homes on the market with not only a lookout tower but also a bomb shelter, our Monday Morning Millionaire fits the bill beautifully. If you have kids and proximity to great private schools is a necessity, there is no better location than 4626 Dorset Road.

We see a lot of gorgeous luxury homes at CandysDirt.com — on a daily basis. Saying we are hard to impress is putting it mildly. Let me just say … we are impressed. This is hands down, one of the most extraordinary estates in Dallas. (more…)

1955 Fallout Shelter

This is just the kind of cool feature that sets older homes apart. Word comes from Rachel Stone of the Oak Cliff Advocate that Don Sanders’ Cold War-era atomic bomb shelter in the backyard of his Kessler Park home will be on this year’s Old Oak Cliff Conservation League Fall Home Tour.

I am so fascinated by fallout shelters, especially those that have the eerie feel that Sanders’ does. You are seriously doing yourself a disservice by not checking out the slideshow from the March issue of the Advocate, all photographed at night by Danny Fulgencio.
