You’ll find privacy, exclusivity, designer touches and a whole lot of space at this Preston Hollow home. Designed by architect Scott Lyons and built in 1985, the home has clean lines, large windows and is surrounded by greenery.
The estate at 10240 Gaywood Road is 2.63 acres, with a main house, a guest house, a pool and a six-foot wall along the street.
Listing agent Faisal Halum said the property is unique because of its location. It backs up to the 16-acre estate that once belonged to Gene Phillips.
“That setting is just special,” Halum said of the home, noting its privacy and its views of a spring-fed creek.
The main house is 9,741 square feet, with five bedrooms, eight bathrooms and three half-bathrooms. The guest house is an additional 3,800 square feet with a two-car garage.
While Halum said the house isn’t technically mid-century modern (it was built in the ’80s), he thinks the design would function well for a buyer who wanted to incorporate those mid-century elements into the home.
The home’s great room features a fireplace and has tall ceilings and brick accents It leads to another sitting area with a wet bar. The great room has an abundance of windows on one end, with access to a patio. There’s a study, a dining room, another living room and a kitchen on the first floor, as well. The kitchen has a connected breakfast room, with access to a patio, a walk-in pantry and a butler’s pantry. The second living room has another wet bar, as well.
The primary suite has a spacious bedroom with a fireplace and room for a sitting area, and the suite has his-and-her style bathrooms and two closets. Two other bedrooms sit on the first floor with the primary suite, and two more guest bedrooms are on the second floor.
The guest house is spacious, with two bedrooms, four bathrooms, one half-bathroom and the two-car garage. It has a separate entrance with plenty
of living space, and the rooms have big windows and natural light.
The expansive property allows for multiple outdoor living areas and space for entertaining.
The home is on the market for the newly-reduced price of $8,500,000 with Faisal Halum of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.
