Ebby Halliday, Realtors is proud to announce that Ebby agent Mary Poss, the former acting mayor of the city of Dallas, has listed the home of the city s former mayor, Tom Leppert, and his wife, Laura.

The estate home at 9525 Alva Court is another jewel in the portfolio of Dallas homes designed by the incomparable Robbie Fusch, Ms. Poss says. It is the fusion of grand elegance with extreme functionality. No detail has been overlooked in this 10,800-square-foot masterpiece built in 2002 in the heart of Old Preston Hollow.

This stunning property features a slate roof, a stone exterior, an electric gate, a circular driveway and manicured landscaping.

Inside, massive timbers in the living and keeping areas set in 11-foot ceilings accentuate these spacious rooms and add to the comfortable and relaxed atmosphere of the home.

Designer appliances in the spacious kitchen make cooking for one or for a crowd easy, Ms. Poss says. Massive granite countertops highlight this natural gathering place. Two large dining areas are located at opposite ends of the kitchen. The extensive butler s pantry and storage areas provide plenty of preparation and staging space.

Beyond the confluence of the downstairs living areas are the master suite, a guest suite and two offices. Adjacent to the large master bedroom is a multipurpose room that may be used as an exercise room, a reading room or however the new owners choose. Marble abounds in the master bath, which is accented by an overhead stained-glass window above the luxurious tub. A steam shower and two large designer closets complete this well-appointed bath.

The first-floor guest suite occupies its own wing for privacy and comfort. One of the twin offices features rich, wood-paneled walls; the other is conveniently located by the kitchen and offers significant storage space.

Views of the pool and the cabana are available from almost all of the home s living areas, the master suite and the kitchen.

A state-of-the-art media room is on the second floor, along with a library, a game room and a second laundry facility. A large, covered deck overlooks the backyard. Three bedrooms, each with its own bath and loft, offer plenty of private living space.

For outside entertaining, a beautiful cabana with separate living quarters offers the perfect backdrop to the gorgeous pool and outdoor kitchen, all of which is surrounded by lush landscaping, Ms. Poss says. Four garages, a porte-cochere, a motor court and a circular drive provide ample parking for any number of vehicles on the property.
