Magnificent French Estate On Private Lake

Offered For $27,500,000

This luxurious French Renaissance-style estate sits on one of the most coveted parcels in Preston Hollow, with dramatic vistas of its private lake and park-like grounds. A leafy allée of Holly trees perfectly frames the imposing façade and hints at the grandeur within.

Expertly constructed in 1999 with interiors by A-list interior designer Peter Marino, this home is a masterpiece of elegant classical and authentic period details, from the soaring antique French slate roof to the subterranean pool and natatorium.

Guests make a grand entrance in the foyer with its black and white limestone floors and carved 18th century French marble fireplace—the first of 14 in the home. Off the foyer in its own room is a shimmering three-story serpentine staircase with hand-painted Gracie wallcovering bathed in light from above.

These kinds of obsessive details define the property. Here, every surface, every texture, is expertly considered and flawlessly executed. Walls are painted in a faux patina, hidden panels and doors seem to disappear, creating formal vestibules that separate spaces and create an almost palatial sense of luxury and privacy.

A trio of floor-to-ceiling French doors dominate the formal living room, which also features antique French oak floors, carved marble fireplace and detailed paneling and plasterwork. Meanwhile, in its visual counterpoint next door, a dark-paneled gentleman’s study offers stunning lake views and an adjoining solarium overlooking the expansive east lawn.

    The home includes two separate dining rooms. The first is a tour-de force of French formality with gorgeous silk wallpapers, carved fireplace and luxe window treatments. Meanwhile, the more relaxed family dining room serves up a classic French style with an 18th century European fireplace and limestone terracotta floors. An additional “Valentino” family room pays faithful homage to the master of red checkerboard.

    At the heart of this grand estate is a fabulous French country kitchen with the perfect mix of classic and rustic touches. The glass fronted limed oak cabinets are backed with pleated curtains in blue checkerboard in a subtle Delft blue hue. Top-of–the-line commercial appliances to please a 5-star chef are right at your fingertips and a nearby staff/catering kitchen makes entertaining easy.

    Upstairs, the master suite of six separate rooms offers a peaceful haven for living and sleeping. It includes a huge bedroom with gorgeous lake views, plus a library/sitting room and separate his and hers dressing rooms and sumptuous baths. His features a masculine mix of matched Honduran mahogany, while delicate plasterwork and sensuous curves adorn her cabinetry and antique soaking tub.

    There is one additional bedroom suite on the second floor with an adjoining nursery. The spacious third floor offers a huge workout room, full sized office and two bedroom suites, one of which has a crow’s nest view to the lake.

    Topping it all off, a staff wing is accessed by a separate staircase and includes two bedrooms, full kitchen and living room designed with a feel that one is in a treehouse. This space could easily be used as a grandchildren’s suite as well.

    And there’s more. The guest house on this property is every bit as lovely as the main residence. It features a large living room with floor-to-celling lake views, along with a full kitchen and luxurious bedroom suite. There’s also an oversized screened porch overlooking the sparkling outdoor swimming pool and private west lawn.

    Don’t miss your chance to see this breathtaking estate in its idyllic lakeside setting.
