Mediterranean Spanish Revival

This Mediterranean Spanish revival in Old Preston Hollow is a just-completed custom home with grand spaces and luxe amenities.

You’ll find something new in Old Preston Hollow with a freshly completed Mediterranean Spanish revival with a posh address.

Just completed in December 2016, the sprawling home at 5326 Edlen Dr. is one surprising space after another in its 13,000 square feet. Sitting on just over one acre with dual gated entries, it was designed by architect Lloyd Lumpkins, who has a reputation for unsurpassed quality and echoes of eclectic European architecture in his work.

Located near Walnut Hill Lane and Inwood Road, it’s in a coveted part of Old Preston Hollow, an area named for its wooded areas with creeks and hollows. Today, arching shade trees and proximity to the Bachman Branch creek keeps that sense of natural beauty.

This manse has six bedrooms, two of which are dual masters; eight full bathrooms; three half baths; and a library.

“This extraordinary residence offers a two-piece clay-tile roof with copper flashing, a flexible floorplan, premium finishes throughout, a first-floor master suite, five fireplaces, an elevator, a seven-car garage, and a one-car lift,” said listing agent Patricia Stampley with Ebby Halliday Realtors. “Featuring quality construction and exceptional attention to detail, this property is ideal for everyday living and for entertaining on a grand scale.”

Don’t miss the open house this Sunday, April 2, from 2-4 p.m. Here’s a sneak peek!

What does a million dollars buy you in Dallas? A whole heck of a lot if you look south of the Trinity. This Hewitt & Habgood listing is at 1029 Lausanne, not too  far from where former Mayor Laura Miller and hubby Steve Wolens used to live, before they packed up and moved off to some fancier digs in Preston Hollow.

Not only is this place a keeper, but it will satisfy your million-dollar-house urges for $15,000 less. Asking:  $985,000. How can you go wrong? You get four bedrooms, four and one-half baths in an original, 4136 square foot Tudor with three living areas. The home feels as if you are dining at the Captain’s table every night. Expansive formals, and exceptional finishes throughout. Built in 1928, this house has all the goodies of yesteryear: plaster walls and ceilings, classic archways, gleaming hardwood floors, art lighting and niches … niches everywhere. Sweeping staircase with stained glass and picture windows, Rookwood fireplace, custom whole-house sound system, a Viking in the kitchen—the stove, not the man. The huge lot has lush Kessler Park landscaping front and back, electric gate, iron and wood fencing, tree moonlighting, mosquito system, front fish pond with 19th century fountain, multiple covered decks, outdoor entertaining, beautiful guest house and a two-car garage could be expanded to three-car.

I mean, don’t tell the rest of the world that you can live like darn tootin’ royalty here in Dallas for less than a million bucks.
