A mere $17,500,000, yes that is an eight digit figure for this estate/compund, any takers...? You would be neighbors with some of Fortune 500's list makers, Ross Perot Jr., for one. I would be so skinny as I am always forgetting something in one room to the next and can you image how much walking in a house like that is, I'm tired already!
I do like this "simple" English Country look, the lots are so large in Preston Hollow, you really do not think you are minutes from the Tollway and everything in Dallas. It's the best of both worlds, country charm with winding tree lined roads and big city convenience - at a price.
This home was featured as Luxe magazine's 2008 showhome, I will have to post further about this with interior photos. The interior is quite modern considering the facade, which I wasn't too crazy about - it's looks to me like it is trying to be a Tuscan Colonial/Georgian style home, it looks confused. And has an asking price of $15,000,000 - in this economy - are you kidding? All it takes is one buyer, though, I guess they are banking on that.
Now this home does not look confused, it looks like it decided it wanted to be an Italian villa and it suceeded. It looks romantic and makes you curious about what lies beyond the courtyard, I love homes that slowly reveal themselves and play hard to get so to say, instead of laying it all out in the open...we all like a little mystery.
And lastly is a Mid-Century Modern concept home, I love the unexpected look of this home in Preston Hollow, gives the eye some visual interest and gives all those nosy neighbors something to talk about...
