Some homes are built for luxury. Fresh off its most recent gig as a venue for the release of the latest Porsche 911, this stately Dallas home also is neighbor to a former president and a jewel in the portfolio of a celebrated architect.
Redesigned by Robbie Fusch in 1993, the heirloom estate at 5656 Meaders Circle has transitioned over many years from a one-story ranch to its current state of grace. Now with two levels and just under 8,500 square feet, the French Country-style home includes six bedrooms, seven bathrooms (five full), and separate guest quarters, making it the perfect place to entertain. Bay windows allow light into multiple living spaces, and the roomy kitchen is ideal for holiday celebrations.
It's easy to see why someone would choose this grand home as a backdrop for a luxury event. With elegant vines meandering along limestone walls and the poetry of the oak trees arching over the entrance, this is a nice home to drive up to.
Guests are able to move freely about the house and into the breathtaking outdoor spaces. The home is one of two in a heavily treed cul de sac, unbeatable for privacy and exclusive views of the creek running alongside the property.
A designated outdoor entertainment area complements the pool, situated beneath a canopy of heritage oak trees. Even on the hottest days, the shade over the pool keeps the water at a refreshing temperature.
And that famous neighbor? He comes with a couple of chief executive perks: a no fly zone and the ever-vigilant Secret Service. As part of the community, friendly neighbor George W. Bush himself signed off on the city variance for the home's privacy gate.
The home is represented by Yana Landman, Dallas' superstar broker for Highland Park, University Park, Uptown, and now Preston Hollow. For those seeking an even more private atmosphere, Landman can possibly negotiate an additional purchase of the only other home on the cul de sac, adding on to a truly private oasis within Dallas city limits.
Given the prices of homes recently sold in the area, this Preston Hollow gem, currently listed for $3.3 million, likely won't be on the market long. For a virtual tour, check out this video:
