“Estate” is a word we don’t toss around lightly. It conjures up those venerable English country homes that stand for centuries and are passed on from generation to generation. So when we tell you this is a Preston Hollow estate — it’s exactly that. And any Brit who’s inherited a stately pile, as they call it, would be green with envy over this classic European three-story, 12,976-square-foot estate at 5414 Falls Road. It has all the privacy and beauty of any bucolic mansion with the benefit of a perfectly placed location, minutes from the best private schools as well as the Dallas Arts District via the Dallas North Tollway.

It also has none of the issues that are part and parcel of those inherited halls, chateaux, and manor houses.

“It’s built like a commercial office building,” listing agent Molly Malone with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, said. “The overall quality of construction and finish is impeccable. It’s one of the best built houses I’ve ever seen, and I’ve been in real estate over 30 years.”


Contemporary Meadow

Smart, sophisticated and stylish — sounds like the perfect date doesn’t it? If this house were a woman, it would be a Texas girl of course, chic and sleek, outdoorsy and unfussy, and loads of fun. This contemporary gal is located at 6110 Meadow Road in the heart of Preston Hollow and is one of the sharpest designs we’ve seen in ages. Architect Christy Blumenfeld of Blume Architecture is responsible for the clean lines and incredibly innovative use of light.


 Developing. I’m told this is effective today. Ellen Terry, whose high end boutique real estate company was just merged into the rapidly expanding Dave Perry Miller luxury real estate brand at Ebby Halliday, on October 24, actually, has left Ebby to join Briggs Freeman Sothebys. Still sorting details and trying to obtain quotes. Stay very tuned.
