This gated estate situated on one of the most quiet and sought-after Old Preston Hollow locations, features a superb country French residence set amongst mature trees. Through a large arched doorway, one is immediately struck by the sweeping staircase and views of the rear grounds through a handsome, wood paneled study with herringbone hardwood floors. Flanking the entry is a formal living area featuring vaulted ceilings with wood trestle beams and a stone fireplace. Beyond the main staircase is a large dining room with Venetian plaster walls. The architect allocated a space for an elevator off the main hallway that is noted on the floor plan. A center hall opens to the family room that offers exposed wood beams, wood paneled built-ins, stone fireplace and wall-to-wall views of the covered outdoor living area, pool and grounds. The family room opens to a keeping room with an impressive fireplace and chef’s kitchen with top of the line appliances, plentiful counter and storage space. Off the kitchen, a butler’s pantry and wet bar area connects back to the dining room, and a mud room leads to an office area and one of four garage bays. The spacious master suite has a fireplace and attached sitting area. The master bath has two large walk-in closets, tub and shower. An adjacent sitting room off the master is perfect for a nursery, reading/living room or could be a future separate bathroom or additional closet. Opposite the master wing is a guest suite, downstairs utility, access to the two-car garage and staircase leading to live-in quarters.
Upstairs are three more bedrooms that all have loft spaces and built-in desk areas, three full baths, a centrally-located game room, second utility room, office with built-ins, and state of the art media room with adjacent wet bar area. From the game room and rear bedroom, one can access a huge covered balcony that overlooks the pool and back yard.
Outside there is a beautiful pool with attached spa, grassy area and guest quarters that has a bedroom, full bath, living area and separate fitness room. A motor court connects the four garage bays and provides a gated, hard surface play area.
