In 1951, when Dallas was still learning to embrace the midcentury modern design movement, oilman Grady Vaughn, Jr. commissioned architect Robert Goodwin of Goodwin & Cavitt to design his waterfront dream home in what we now call the honeypot of Preston Hollow. The home is 9,500 square feet with six bedrooms, seven and a half baths, several living areas on one of the most heavily treed lots in this majestic part of town. The acreage is unbelievable: 1.36 acres that include a serene swimming pool and a large private pond.

5350 South Dentwood was designed to serpentine throughout the lush property, meandering alongside the pond on the Straight Branch tributary, weaving through and around original trees. Buildings developed for their sites have an inherent connection, and you feel it intensely walking around the Vaughn House setting.

The home briefly came to market in the spring when it first became available.  Now, it is back, offered for $5,500,000 from the original list price of $6,900,000, with some very serious sellers behind it.

Mrs Texas UA

Not only is Amy Hillock the “First Lady of Little Elm” — she’s married to the Mayor of Little Elm, David Hillock  — she is a real estate agent with United Realty and now, a beauty queen!

Amy was just crowned Mrs. Texas United America! Never heard of it? Me neither, but it sure looks like a great group of beautiful women and a lot of fun. So if you need a darling young gal with a sweet smile at your next event who can also sell a crib or two with her bare hands, call Amy:

 As Mrs. Texas UA I need to make appearances, volunteer, and attend charitable functions throughout the state over the next year.  I thought I would send you my press release, appearance request form, and photo for you to use and pass along to organizations you know who are hosting events and functions over the next 12 months.  I am available for golf tournaments, awards ceremonies, charitable events, volunteering events, walks for cures, just about anything.  I would love to help promote and make your event sparkle with a crowned Queen in attendance.
