Comfort, privacy, and natural beauty come together in one magnificent package at this significant Preston Hollow estate. Designed by the prominent modernist architect Scott Lyons, the 1985-built house was masterfully updated in 2010 and sits on 2.63 idyllic acres with 600 feet of frontage in Mayflower Estates, one of the most prestigious and exclusive sections of Preston Hollow. The gated property, which also includes a two-bedroom, 4.1 bath, 3,800-square-foot guest house with a separate entrance designed by architect Nick Glazbrook, backs up to a spring-fed creek, offering a feeling of seclusion even though it’s just minutes from some of the city’s most popular shopping and dining destinations.
Set back from the street, the five-bedroom main house is tucked behind mature trees and a wide circle driveway and features a quiet brick facade paired with an energy-efficient standing-seam copper roof. The minimal yet warm style of the exterior continues on the inside, where tall ceilings combine with extensive windows, white oak-paneled walls, and brick accents, creating a sense of understated elegance throughout the home’s 9,741 square feet.
Just inside the entry, a gorgeous formal living room is the ultimate entertaining spot, featuring a fireplace, a wet bar, multiple sitting areas, and a wall of glass with sliding doors that lead to a white gravel patio bordered by lush greenery. The adjacent dining room, which is wrapped in panels of white oak and offers access to a covered balcony, also has plenty of room for guests. One of the home’s most notable updates is the contemporary Bulthaup kitchen, where a large island offers bar seating and a roomy breakfast area opens onto the patio and sparkling pool. The sleek kitchen also features a walk-in pantry and butler’s pantry and accesses a separate deck overlooking the landscaped grounds and the grand space before the creek. The home’s private spaces include a generous and serene primary suite. With a fireplace, a sitting area, and sliding doors leading to a private balcony, the tranquil space is a haven for homeowners. It also features luxurious bathrooms and huge walk-in closets. Other highlights include a cozy study with built-in bookshelves, an exercise room, a spacious family room with built-ins and a wet bar, and an attached three-car garage. The property also has a pump-fed irrigation system and a two-car garage for the guest house, as well as a six-foot-high security wall constructed with hand-cut bricks. The wall spans more than 600 feet of street frontage, providing the estate an extra layer of safety and privacy.
From its architectural pedigree and light-filled interiors to its multiple outdoor living areas and expansive lot (including room to add a tennis court), this exceptional property offers a rare chance to own a piece of modern Texas history.
