We love the House of Tudor. You've passed by this house a hundred times on Preston Road in Old Preston Hollow, just north of Walnut Hill Lane.

In a sea of newly constructed, ginormous mansions and mini mansions sits a stately, romantic Tudor home on 1.6 wooded acres. It's been there for 80 years, and it will be there for at least 80 more.

 The home was built in 1930, on what was once a huge farm. In 2002, well-known Dallas architect Richard Drummond Davis handled the remodel.

The home was built in 1930, one of the original Preston Hollow cottages on what was once a huge farm. In 2002, well-known Dallas architect Richard Drummond Davis handled the remodel of this rambling country home filled with exqusite finishes, craftsmanship and old-world beauty. The original slate tile floors remain.

You get sooo much: 7,534 square feet, four bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, formals, music room, study, billiard room, guesthouse, pool, and four-car garage with a porte-cochère. The landscaping is magnificent — old, lush and totally filled in as only 80 years can fill. 

The best part? This home, listed with Kimberlee Gromatzky over at Dave Perry Miller, is a steal: It was $3,695,000, then it was reduced to $2,999,999, and now it's listed at  $2,795,000. The price reduction is almost as big as the house!
