9,828 square feet (main house), 5/5 full baths, 2 half baths/guest house/4-car garage. What makes this home so wonderful is not only its location "in that honeypot of Preston Hollow"but also the expansive 4.3 acre grounds and traditional Southern mansion charm. Built in 1980 by the chief executive of Centex homes (for his family), this spread screams Tara, with its solid red-brick construction (before everyone and their dog had to have stone) and ladylike white pillars. A guest garage apartment sits over the four-car garage and is outdone only by the separate guest house. Other features include a tennis court, pool, cabana, solarium aviary, 35-foot-long-entrance gallery, library, and two morning rooms. A mammoth master with his-and-her dressing rooms and bath, sitting room, and four more huge bedrooms round out this home.
