Original Preston Hollow Estate – Sold by Douglas Newby

When we think about the graciousness of Preston Hollow, we picture an original estate home built on many acres in the 1930s. This Desco Estate quickly became a landmark in El Parado, the earliest addition of Preston Hollow. This 1936 neoclassical estate home, perfectly placed on its present two acres with mature trees arching over its graceful and stately architecture, remains a Preston Hollow landmark.

You will enjoy the expansive veranda before you proceed through the deep arched entrance to the formal hall. From here you will find the large, classically proportioned spaces of the living room, dining room, butler’s pantry, library, and sunroom that you would anticipate in a historic home. Sympathetically added is a large family room, an attached cabana and a separate guest house. On the second floor you will find four bedrooms, including an elaborate master bedroom suite.

The approximately 6,000 square foot home has an attached four car garage and separate covered parking for the guest house with a bedroom, living room and kitchen. The cabana living space opens onto a terrace covered by a trellis, overlooking the substantial rectangular pool. You have the luxury of enjoying this beautiful estate home on its entire 1.87 acres.

It is exciting when an important and beautifully maintained Preston Hollow estate such as this comes on the market for the first time in 30 years. This opportunity allows a new family to enjoy the architectural legacy of a historic and architecturally significant home.
