Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest French-inspired home of them all? In Dallas, it’s this Preston Hollow stunner. Looking at this fabulous abode, it seems like horses and carriages should be lining up to drop off guests in sparkly dresses and penguin suits. The romantic architecture and immaculately landscaped shrubbery transport you to Paris or Provence, minus the smell of fresh baguettes, but a quick drive to Central Market will surely take care of that.


Clocking in at 7,990-square-feet, no lavish detail is too small at this chateau. Its stately rock and stone façade was designed to impress, and certainly succeeds in that. Right inside, a 20-foot marble foyer and curved staircase make you feel as if you’ve stepped into Gatsby’s mansion.

ebby halliday home tour

The home at 4626 Dorset Rd. is one of 11 marvelous properties on the Ebby Halliday Home Tour this Sunday. This home is open from 2-4 p.m.

In the pantheon of tony Dallas neighborhoods, Preston Hollow stands out as one of the most beloved. It features tree-lined streets, a variety of architecturally significant homes, and easy access to well-known public and private schools. In addition, Preston Hollow is only minutes from both the central business and arts districts.

Many famous Dallasites make their homes here, such as President George W. Bush, Mark Cuban, Andy Beal, and former mayor Laura Miller.

“Part of the draw is the stunning collection of properties in Preston Hollow, from ultra-luxury Mediterraneans to chic clean-lined contemporary homes,” said Keith Newman, sales manager at Ebby Halliday’s Little White House. “Buyers have such a range of options here, and they’re high-end properties with a lot of stand-out amenities.”

Ebby Halliday Realtors is pleased to have the opportunity to show 11 incredible Preston Hollow homes on the market now. To showcase these standout properties, the Preston Center office and Ebby’s Little White House have created a home tour Sunday for the public.

“Ebby Halliday knows Preston Hollow and we’ve collaborated for decades with homeowners there to feature their properties in the best light and bring in lots of interested buyers,” said Ginger Gill, sales manager for Ebby’s Preston Center Office. “For buyers, our associates offer extensive expertise of the neighborhood—they know Preston Hollow intimately and can share that knowledge with them.”

Home tour times are staggered between 1 and 5 p.m. so buyers have the most time to visit these stunning properties.

6414 Deloache Front

Father’s Day is Sunday, and if you’re looking for a special way to surprise Dad and house hunting at the same time, this home will make any father flip his lid!

This Southern Traditional at 6414 Deloache — one of the most coveted streets in Preston Hollow — has a private study full of rich wood paneling and cabinetry, perfect for hanging trophies and memorabilia, with French doors leading to a private porch which has the most perfect little putting green! What father wouldn’t want to come home to this spot for a bit of unwinding before family dinners?

6414 Deloache Study 6414 Deloache Putting Green

A private listing from Dave Perry-Miller agent Clarke Landry, this beautiful home is marketed for almost $1.7 million and has five bedrooms, five full and two half baths, a master wing and guest suite on the first floor, and more than 6,200 square feet of custom-built luxury. Every detail has been seen to, especially with the amazing backyard that is just excellent for entertaining with an instant-heat saltwater pool and a deliriously beautiful deck that has outdoor acces to the wet bar — a genius idea if I’ve ever seen one!

The kitchen is spot on with a huge island and built-in appliances and a professional gas range with double ovens, all stainless, of course. The breakfast bar is excellent, a way to maintain cabinet space while still keeping the connection between living and kitchen spaces — a feature that families are demanding more and more these days.

In the master suite there is plenty of room for a sitting area, making this a great room for a weekend sequester from responsibilities. The bedroom is a perfect example of the designer paint and wide-fashioned trim throughout the home — a great detail that makes ordinary layouts pop! I also love that there are tons of ceiling fans in this home.

I am a huge proponent of ceiling fans not just to lower cooling costs, but also because I am Southern and I can’t stand to have still air in the house. However, I have rarely seen a ceiling fan in a bathroom, which isn’t a bad thing, but different. When I stayed at an old manor house in Key West there were ceiling fans in the bathrooms, which wasn’t altogether unpleasant!

Still, I am in love with this house, right down to the mouldings and brick and gorgeous fireplaces. Especially the backyard with its amazing pool and huge deck. I just know the right buyer will come along and get bowled over by all of the details, especially that study — a total win for Dad!
