A French-inspired estate on Lakehurst Ave. in the tony Preston Hollow neighborhood of Dallas, Texas will be sold at auction with no reserve on Saturday, July 20th.
The four-bedroom home offers four full bathrooms and three half bathrooms. Built in 2002, it is 7,990 total square feet in size. Masterfully designed by architect Don Caperton and built by Oscar Ponder of Encore Homes, the home took two years to build. It is located in the middle of the block between Preston Rd. and Hillcrest, on a corner lot.
The home consists of complete stone construction and features many details, including copper gutters over-layed with aluminum, gas lanterns at the entrance, a seven foot Schonbek crystal chandelier with a gold-leaf dome and a custom-designed floating iron staircase.
It has double-sided fireplaces made of limestone and offers herringbone wood flooring and beaded molding around the door casings.
The expansive master bedroom, which is located on the first floor, has built-in cabinetry and two oversized walk-in closets.
The master bathroom features a silver leaf dome ceiling and an Italian marble slab bath and shower.
There are three additional bedrooms each with its own bathroom. Two bedrooms are located on the second floor and one is located on the first floor of the home. There is a large “bonus” room that can easily serve as a fifth bedroom.
