Description

This is not just an estate. No, this is a labor of love spanning nearly eight years from initial concept design to final completion. The owners’ goal was to create a property which provides modern comfortable living, while expressing the European luxury influence that is evidenced throughout the gated compound. Even a basement wine cellar and storm shelter with 10 inch thick cement walls was envisioned, and executed with the exacting standards set forth for the entire construction. The owners’ careful supervision of the property can be observed at every view – lovingly cared for and protected mature towering trees, stunning landscaped grounds, tower lookout, outdoor lighting, reinforced hardscape, real clay tile roof, concrete block exterior clad in 3-layer real stucco, crushed granite driveways and walkways, pavestone motor court, sun-stroked sparkling pool, immaculate and professionally decorated interior, high ceilings, streaming natural light, custom-made fireplace mantels, mahogany windows and doors, elegant and decorative chandeliers, extensive art lighting, high-end hardware, a large outdoor living area with fireplace overlooking the rear grounds, and an elaborate 40-zone security protection system are just a sampling of the home’s many offerings. Authenticity was emphasized, and manifested in the use of materials such as solid oak, long-leaf pine and Doug Fir beams, and solid carved limestone columns, lintels and window sills. Wood floors are predominantly 150-200 year old long-leaf pine, while the travertine floors on the main level are 1 ¼ inches thick. Antique tile floors reclaimed from Europe, and the use of arches, groin vaults and other ceiling treatments add to the authentic sensibility of this extraordinary residence. Located in the tranquil Strait Lane Estates area of Old Preston Hollow, the neighborhood is comprised of both old and new estates resting on large lots of an acre or more on country lanes with no curbs. Situated on 1.2 acres and completed in 2009, 4626 Dorset Road has 11,150 square feet of air-conditioned living space with 6 bedrooms, 6 full and 2 half baths, formal living room, formal dining room, butler’s pantry, chef’s kitchen, conservatory/family room, game and media room with wet bar, library/study, wine cellar, underground grotto, exercise room, and a safe room. There are also 5 wood-burning fireplaces, 3 stairways, attached upstairs quarters, and 4-car attached garages. Immediately open and airy upon entry, the grand foyer has 32’ ceilings crowned with light from the tower top windows directly above, and a gently rising stairway with iron balustrade ascending to the second level. Opening from the foyer to the right is the inviting west wing with elegant and stylish formal living and dining rooms, adorned by vaulted beamed ceilings, fireplaces with custom mantels, art lighting, and an elegant chandelier. These rooms have 5 sets of French doors opening to and overlooking the extensive outdoor loggia with fireplace. Beyond the formals are the cheerful breakfast room, conservatory/ family room with fireplace, and chef’s kitchen with granite and stainless steel counters, stainless steel appliances, a butcher’s block counter, pot filler, plenty of cabinet and counter space, and a walk-in food pantry. Walls of glass in this generously-sized informal living space provide soothing views of the surrounding outdoor nature. Nearby is a butler’s pantry and breezeway leading to a mud room, laundry room, and the 4-car garages. The east wing contains a handsome game and media room with theatrical stage and wet bar, and the library/study with large picture windows, 2 sets of French doors, walls of built-in shelves, and a built-in desk. Beyond the library is a spacious and comfortable guest room with sitting area, an accessible full bathroom, and a convenience bar. Located on the second floor is the master suite. Truly a retreat, this generous space features a large sitting area with fireplace and a separate bed chamber. Windows lining both sides of the suite create an ethereal and peaceful feeling, with the rooms seemingly floating in the air. The owner’s sanctuary also has a balcony overlooking the pool, and a spacious bath with dual vanities, soaking tub, steam shower, private water closet, and a large walk-in closet with built-ins and vanity. Located also on the second floor, along a light-filled gallery, are three additional bedrooms suites with private baths and walk-in closets. Refined living continues outdoors on the large covered loggia with fireplace, meandering walkways, park-like grounds, a sports court, and a 56,000 gallon saltwater pool with soothing fountains. Lush landscaping surrounds this idyllic property, providing depth and color, while awe-inspiring towering trees silently preside over this impressive and secluded homestead.
