I have been watching this home for three weeks, wondering when a hungry buyer would gobble it up. Builder Marc Marion transformed what was once a plain Jane 1948 North Dallas ranch into a minimalist’s dream smack dab in the center of Preston Hollow.
At 6255 Park Ln., you get 2,509 square feet plus all your heart desires on a half-acre lot. That’s three bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, two living areas, two-car garage and everything imaginable (and then some) within the thick, Austin-stone clad walls.
Several years ago, building experts and appraisers told me about homes like this: leaner, less than 3,000 square feet, and just what the 2013 buyer wants. This house may be lean, but inside it is mean and as loaded as a 767.
The kitchen is sleekly outfitted with stainless appliances upgraded so high they might actually take off.
This home has the original hardwoods polished to a gleam, which really warms the interior, plus quartz counters and glass, glass, glass everywhere. The kitchen is sleekly outfitted with stainless appliances upgraded so high they might actually take off.
I love the two living areas with mosaic-tiled fireplaces, but the master suite in this home is what really turns me on. Check out the extra-long his-and-hers sink in the luxurious master bath. It may be longest sink in the state of Texas. The soaking tub is extra deep, and the car-wash shower features multiple heads so you can literally blast yourself clean.
As if everything were not already perfect, the oasis of a backyard boasts a clean-lined rectangular pool and circular sun deck set against a backdrop of lush, mature greenery. Although the yard is large enough to add a guest house, it is not overwhelming; smart landscaping has kept maintenance and watering way down on the list of honey-do chores.
Location is triple-A. Need I point out the proximity to NorthPark Center, Preston Center or the Dallas North Tollway? The price for this slice of Park Lane paradise listed with Clay Stapp of Clay Stapp + Co: $1,279,000.
