“Really, this is one of the prettiest lots in Preston Hollow, if not Dallas. Great neighbors across the street, and then one house — excuse me, mansion — down is former Mayor Laura Miller and her husband, Steve Wolens’ spread. I mean, this is COVETED property because it doesn’t get more lush: You can see manicured landscaping, huge trees, creeks, and charming bridges from every room. There is a private, gated drive that leads to the dramatic front entry and motor court that can house a number of autos. The garage is a four-car.)
“The foyer is stunning and dramatic, with a sitting area and limestone flooring with diamond accents. The huge crystal chandeliers are a fortune in themselves. On the right is a spacious formal living room. Yes, the ceilings are quite tall, 24 feet in fact, in this room but that’s the way they take in the full breadth of the giant trees outside. Looking out that living room window, I dare anyone to say that is not a more beautiful view than a painting. It’s all nature!
“On the left, there is a large dining room that can seat 10 or more. The flooring is herringbone wood, and the antique fireplace has a double marble mantle. Across from the living room is a library with full mahogany paneling, many built-ins and full bar adjacent to the living room.
“Down the hallway is the glorious master bedroom that enjoys the same beauteous view as the formal living room — smart architectural design was highly customized to this lot. The master, measuring 33 by 20 feet, has a sitting area, fireplace, massive master bath, massive closets, a breakfast bar and an adjacent exercise room. All of these suites have million-dollar plus views of the grounds.”
