Built in 2003 and redesigned in 2008, the French chateau at 5828 Woodland Drive (5828woodland.daveperrymiller.com) features many unique details that you won’t find at other Preston Hollow estates. Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Christine McKenny and Megan Stern are marketing the 0.87-acre property for $5,700,000.
This home is perfect for entertaining. After they take in the oversized entry’s impressive staircase and stately marble flooring, guests will naturally transition down an angled hallway toward the kitchen. But before they get there, there will be an opportunity to pick up cocktails and hors d’oeuvres from the butler’s pantry’s expansive bar window.
The kitchen and breakfast room are an open space linked by gorgeous hardwood beams in the ceiling. The amount of counter space in this kitchen — including the island, bar top, and cabinets along two walls — is unbelievable. A dramatic brick archway frames the commercial-grade Wolf ovens and ranges. The humongous Sub-Zero refrigerator is complemented by numerous wine and beverage fridges.
Just beyond the breakfast room’s fireplace — one of six — is the family room. Redesigned and modernized in 2008, it features a sleek barrel ceiling that’s reminiscent of a gallery, so it’s the perfect room for displaying art.
The family room and breakfast room provide access to the fully screened porch, which was added in the 2008 remodel. With a fireplace, a built-in Maytag grill, and a pleasing swing, this attractive space is timeless.
The guest suite and master suite are on opposite ends of the first floor. The entire master suite is wired for audio. The bedroom features an Italian marble fireplace, an exterior door, and a coffee bar with a small fridge. There are two walk-in closets, and “hers” is truly a showpiece.
The tub, rain shower, and counters in the master bath are finished in circular Sicis mosaic tiles imported from Italy. When the light is right — and it often is, given the windows that offer views of both yards — the tiles shimmer in a rainbow of colors. The bathroom’s centerpiece is a domed ceiling over a marble floor. It also includes a pair of private commodes.
The second floor features two bedroom suites with ample closets, a playroom with a kitchenette, a gym with a full bathroom, a media room, a unique crafting room, and separate attics for storage.
