This stunning custom gated English Normandy home is situated on a rare 100x200 lot in Preston Hollow. Built by Hawkins-Welwood and designed by Robbie Fusch, there is 7,103 square feet (per appraisal) of comfortable living space with six bedrooms (master plus guest down), five full and one-half baths, four living areas, and a three-car attached garage. The professional landscaping, pool and spa were designed by Harold Leidner, while the driveway entry gates are by Lynn Watkins. A fabulous open floor-plan with high ceilings, thick crown moldings, a large island kitchen, plenty of storage, abundant natural light, and quality fixtures and hardware set the stage for this impressive residence.
The formal 2-story entry highlights a sweeping staircase and opens to the large light-filled formal living room with fireplace and to the elegant formal dining room with adjacent bar area. The center of the home is the fully-appointed island kitchen with steeply-pitched wood-beamed ceilings, custom-cabinetry, granite & Walker Zanger tile countertops, high-end appliances, a wine refrigerator, dual dishwashers, and a large walk-in pantry. Opening from the kitchen is a cheerful breakfast room with fireplace, and a spacious family room with beamed ceilings and built-ins. Walls of windows and four sets of French doors serve this informal area and provide soothing views of the outdoor living area, sparkling pool & spa and professionally landscaped grounds. The master suite is truly a retreat with high ceilings and cove lighting, a sitting area, and a sumptuous bath with dual vanities, separate shower and jetted tub, private water closet, and two ample walk-in closets. Also located on the first level are a guest bedroom with full bath and a large laundry room with plenty of cabinet and counter space. The second level features four additional bedrooms, three full-baths, and a large game/media room.
