This serene and utterly stunning home is found on a heavily wooded acre-plus lot in one of Preston Hollow’s most discreet, prestigious areas. The unique combination of architectural features and materials was inspired by the southern Spanish region of Andalusia and creates an ambience rarely found. Inspired by the many decorative influences of this area so rich in trade and cultural exchange, the home quietly and elegantly displays some of the best of these. One feels the cross pollination of centuries of ideas in features such as the carved paneled beams, numerous stone screened openings (or “jalis”), hand hewn decorative doors, unexpected tiled exterior walls, and gorgeous wood and stone fireplace surrounds. Knit together by a discerning eye while traveling the world, these elements were combined into a whole as if through history, to create a magnificent dwelling. A romance of the ages exudes a warmth and welcome that pervades the home. Beautiful proportions combined with the permanence of the clean stucco surfaces create a fascinating balance. Enter into the limestone floored foyer with its deep-set sills and jalis. The two story beamed living room centers around the intricately carved stone fireplace. Decorative roof finials project from the upstairs gallery. Massive wooden doors open to the expansive library anchored by another extraordinary fireplace with wood and ivory surround. The family room with its decorative leaded windows, fireplace, and expansive bookshelves is a special retreat. A private guest suite is found off its own first floor hallway. The dining room, kitchen and morning room all open to the balmy covered porch overlooking the pool and gardens. Two staircases access the second floor. The luxurious primary suite overlooks the rear grounds and pool from its porch and has yet another fireplace as well as his/her closets and a sumptuous bath. Two additional bedrooms with connecting bath, and the gallery with seating area complete the second floor. A tiled fountain gurgles in the side courtyard. A wall of antique tile soars in the outdoor living area. Follow the exterior stucco staircase to yet another spacious guest suite perched above the three-car garage and wisteria covered arbor. Poolside, enjoy the wood-fired oven, bar with cooking area, and pool bath. This home is a totally unique and very special expression---a rare and artful combination of historical elements within its elegant yet simple architectural backdrop. One only needs to enter the front door to be transported to a different world.
