Preston Hollow is home to some of Dallas’ most architecturally distinctive residences. It is a treasure trove of landmark homes designed by architectural greats like Richard Meyer, Philip Johnson, Frank Lloyd Wright and Larrabee Barnes. The home at 5943 Walnut Hill Lane is no exception. French country architecture by Sam Elchami creates the incredible curb appeal that sets the tone for this estate.
French provincial gates lead to a courtyard adorned with fountains. Inside, an Italian marble entryway and dual grand staircase welcome guests to more than 9,700 square feet of luxurious living space.
Formal living and dining rooms beckon guests to gather. Walnut hardwoods glisten and three Swarovski chandeliers float elegantly above. In the formal living area, a marble fireplace adds warmth. Large windows flood the spaces with natural light.
A gourmet kitchen offers the finest tools of the trade. The rare Ilve gas range and dual ovens are authentic European luxury appliances. Glistening hardwood floors, custom cabinetry, a breakfast bar and marble countertops create a chef’s paradise. A cherry wood wine room offers the perfect place to unwind.
The main floor master suite is exceptionally spacious. French doors lead from the bedroom to the poolside outdoor terrace. The master bath offers his and hers walk-in closets, walk-around shower and extraordinary ceiling detail above the large tub.
Outdoor entertaining areas are exquisite. A resort-style pool sparkles, surrounded by an outdoor kitchen, three lounge areas and fire pit.
Upstairs, four bedrooms each have their own bath and generous storage. A two-story mahogany library features a hand-carved fireplace and spiral staircase. A state-of-the-art home theatre offers an excellent viewing experience. Listed for $3,450,000.
