Contemporary Gated Estate
From the front gated entry to the backyard’s lush and sprawling grounds, this 2.79-acre estate is a magnificent example of blending contemporary architecture with the beauty of its natural environment. Designed by Mark Hoesterey, the two-story main house and its guest house were specifically created to complement the serene landscape and towering trees. To achieve this goal and create a luxurious home, oversized covered terraces, beautiful wood decks, fountains, and a swimming pool were incorporated, as were mammoth windows, glass doors, stone and hardwood floors, three fireplaces and two stairways.
Thanks to a practical floorplan, the home is ideal for raising a family, entertaining corporate executives, displaying a priceless art collection, or all three. If the occasion calls for entertaining, this home was tailormade for any get-together, from a seated dinner to a reception. To accommodate the gourmet cook or caterer, the kitchen with its marble island, soapstone countertops, Bosch dishwashers, Miele refrigerator/freezer and Viking double oven is supported by a butler’s pantry and a temperature-controlled, walk-in wine room that can easily store hundreds of bottles of vino.
Just down the corridor in a separate wing of the home is the master suite that incorporates the beauty of the outdoors. With a dramatic vaulted ceiling, the bedroom not only has its own fireplace, it also has private access to the backyard. The master bathroom has all the perks of a spa including a soaking tub with a flawless view of the suite’s secret garden as well as a state-of-the-art shower, marble floors and a built-in makeup vanity. The his-and-her closets feature wood-and-glass doors, cabinets and shoe racks. The suite even has its own washing machine and dryer.
The living quarters on the upper level features four unique ensuite guestrooms with walk-in closets and covered balconies overlooking the grounds, plus a full-service utility room, and a game room.
Easily connected is the private guest house with all the comforts of the main house plus an exercise room and its own gated entrance.
Stunning outdoor living areas and the expansive backyard create wonderful spaces for family gatherings. The thoughtful design throughout both the interior and exterior makes this residence a unique opportunity.
The Neighborhood: Preston Hollow
You don't expect to find a "hollow" positioned squarely in the middle of a large metropolitan city proper. Which is exactly why Preston Hollow is such a delightful surprise to all who happen upon this North Dallas treasure for the first time.
Like a hollow's definition suggests, this roughly three-square-mile neighborhood actually does contain a "heavily wooded area" punctuated with rambling tributaries (from Bachman Creek) and gently rolling hills. No wonder so many of Dallas' oldest and most notable families settled here. They understood what prime real estate it was – and would be for decades to come. Local lore holds (and some city records confirm) that in its earliest days, this former Texas town was the site of cotton fields, dairy farms and even buffalo hunting. It was annexed by Dallas in 1945 to take advantage of much-needed city services, but has retained many of its original town-like qualities despite the meteoric rise of North Dallas around it.
A drive down any street in Preston Hollow offers newcomers an instant glimpse into its unique makeup. Before you even meet a resident, the variety of architectural styles gives you much of the information you need to know about the kinds of people that call this esteemed North Dallas neighborhood home. Sprawling 1950s ranch-style homes dwell side by side with recently constructed modern marvels and more traditional mansions that can't be seen from the road. As you meander the often curbless streets, passing young families out riding bikes and empty nesters walking dogs, the vision starts to become more clear. And you picture yourself living your new life here.
Many of these current residents were drawn to Preston Hollow homes for the same reasons you will be:
- The location is unbeatable. It's essentially bounded by Northwest Highway, Inwood, Hillcrest and Royal, and split by Preston Road. The Dallas North Tollway and US-75 (Central Expressway) are easily accessible. And shopping centers Preston Center and Preston Royal, along with the Southwest's most renowned mall, NorthPark, are less than 10 minutes from anywhere, making "quick trips" truly quick.
- Generously sized lots with mature, well-cared-for landscapes provide endless hide-and-seek and exploration opportunities that stick with young minds well into adulthood. A smattering of city parks indulges any other needs for recreational outlets.
- Local public schools, including the highly-ranked Preston Hollow Elementary, and an abundance of nearby private schools give additional options for building a solid educational foundation.
There is also a palpable pride of ownership that entices future residents to consider Preston Hollow real estate. Living among like-minded homeowners means the traditions of excellence started by Preston Hollow's founders so many generations ago, will be passed on to the many generations to come.
