Architectural Significance in Preston Hollow

Your hunt for a modern estate in the heart of Dallas ends at 5221 Walnut Hill Lane, Dallas' first Gold LEED® Certified home that is equal parts formal and family friendly.

Find sustainability and serenity in the heart of a great city thanks to this home's gated 1.3-acre lot dotted with majestic live oak trees and bordered by lush foliage and a babbling creek. Guests enter and exit through a double security gate connected by a pea-gravel covered circular drive in the front; a second access gate is located for your choice of entry and exit. Once inside, you enjoy complete privacy from passers-by and neighbors.

The outside of the home is a timeless Marfa-style modern ranch, clad in a combination of metal, brick and wood for a warm, modern look. Let your gaze follow the brick hardscape up to the front entrance, or trace a path down onto the expansive backyard patio and gorgeous backyard. All whose eyes rest upon it are pleased by the symmetrical architecture and tasteful plantings that fit the natural landscape.

But look closer and you'll notice the environmentally conscious touches that make this home extra special. These include things such as a 16,000-gallon rainwater collection system that nourishes the landscape and cuts city water consumption, and special fixtures that reduce energy usage by automatically turning off lights when you leave a room. Even the newly installed metal and composite roof is energy efficient and can be recycled when the time comes.

Inside, the home is an art collector's paradise. High ceilings, natural light and smooth walls provide the perfect backdrop for displaying fresh work from your favorite artists as well as sculptures and your treasured collections. Customizable art lighting illuminates each piece, and ample wall space and large rooms make both the living and the art appreciating easy.

Invite friends over to admire your art collection and say your hellos in the generously sized foyer. They are greeted by neutral hardwood flooring and a line of sight thru the kitchen, dining, and two-story windows to the incredible trees in the back yard. There is a handsome powder bath off of the front foyer with silk wallpaper, impressive textures and colors to impress all visitors.

Once they've taken their seats under the soaring living room ceilings accented by exposed iron beams, they'll feel warm and comfortable by the fireplace. Those who want to chat quietly or sit close can find a spot in the adjoining family room, which is near enough to stay in the mix of things but separate enough to not be disturbed. A built-in dry bar and wine fridge is close at hand, as well.

When hunger strikes, head to the beautiful-yet-functional kitchen energized by a fiery tile backsplash and sleek European-style bulthaup® cabinets. It's lined with drawers and nooks so you can enjoy a sleek, minimal aesthetic every day and still have everything you need to cook a full-course meal within easy reach. With two sinks, a professional six-burner Wolf® range and a separate prep and laundry area, your guests will take the ample space as an invitation to roll up their sleeves and help.

Once everyone has had his or her fill in the casual dining area next to a toasty fire, take the party outside to the fire pit or relax on the recently updated and beautifully maintained deck while the grown-ups talk and the kids enjoy the playhouse. Need a sec to respond to an email? Duck inside, head past the second powder bath with eye-catching terrazzo tile and pop into the home office to type your reply. You'll be back outside and enjoying the party before anyone even knows you were gone.

When the evening winds down, invite your guests to spend the night by offering them either the two-bedroom suite with an adjoining living area and two en suite baths, or set up their accommodations in the separate quarters behind the main house. It's ready to go as a functional guesthouse with a well-appointed full bath and beverage bar, or use it as a garage, home gym or storage area.

Once your guests are settled in, call it a night and head to the primary suite. Enjoy a moment of quiet on the attached balcony overlooking the infinity pool. Or sink into the soaker tub in the master bath done in dazzling green terrazzo tile. Its dual vanity and double closet setup make sharing the space a breeze, and the walk-in shower stall with a frosted window lets you bathe in natural light.

When it's time to head out, the location of this home makes leaving as easy as coming home. Enjoy urban conveniences like fast access to top schools, the Dallas North Tollway and other major highways, restaurants and more without sacrificing a pastoral feel with plenty of space for animals and your garden. In fact, city and country life blend so well in this sustainable home, you might call it an art.
