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:

It seemed as if, during the turn of the 21st Century, every builder under the sun wanted to try their hand at designing a Mediterranean. What we ended up with was a bunch of half-done, mish-mash homes that all sort of look the same. It gave the style a bad name, that’s for sure.

But this Mediterranean is helping win people back to the style, with its unique facade and fabulous interiors. Perfect for today’s luxury homebuyers, this stunning example of Mediterranean done right at 5350 Falls Road in Old Preston Hollow is listed with Patricia Stampley of Ebby Halliday Realtors for $5.25 million. You can see all of the details that make this home the perfect warm embrace to the end of your day at her open house on Sunday, April 24, from 2 to 5 p.m.

Of course, I got an advance tour with Patricia herself!
