Combine a renowned architect with a sought-after address and homeowners who’ve assembled a noted art collection, and the result is a modern masterpiece that exemplifies a well-curated life.
Bud Oglesby, the 20th century architect credited with crafting exquisite dwellings that flow seamlessly from room to room and across spacious terraces, designed the Preston Hollow estate at 10300 Strait Lane to meet his highest standards. Sited on 3.5 acres of lush and landscaped grounds, the home truly embraces a very special life.
From the private setting at the end of a long drive to the open spaces that create a backdrop for elegant entertaining and comfortable family gatherings, this five-bedroom home built around a central courtyard is a study in proportion and forward-thinking design.
The entire home is light-filled and open, thanks to large windows that frame the nature preserve-like setting and Oglesby’s signature, clear story windows that draw light from above. The long galleries lining each of the home’s three wings are flooded with light, creating the perfect canvas for displaying treasured collections. And in the master bed/sitting room, a floor-to-ceiling window overlooks a small pond that is home to a family of colorful mallards.
Oglesby’s expert hand also includes functional spaces that assist with comfortable living—a generous butler’s pantry, spacious laundry room and separate quarters for staff or guests.
And outside, the wooded grounds include a pool, tennis court and expansive terraces that open to this serene, one-of-a-kind setting.
This modern work of art is listed for $7,490,000.
