NEIGHBORHOOD: Preston Hollow
BUILT: 2005
BUILDER: Rosewood Homes
SQUARE FOOTAGE: 11,697 STATS: 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 1 half bath
WHY WE CHOSE IT: Maybe it’s the ivy—how in the world did they get it to grow that fast? Perhaps it’s the trees—so mature. Whatever the case, this house has some East Coast gravitas. We half expected to see the Kennedys out front playing flag football.

WHY WE CHOSE IT: Welcome to California. Okay, not really. This Santa Barbara-style house does have lake views. Even better, it is perfectly situated on its lot. Thanks to the owners for breaking the tradition of using every single square inch of land. We will gladly toast you if you invite us over for drinks on your amazing patio.

WHY WE CHOSE IT: People kept telling us to check out this house, and we kept driving by thinking,“Stupid people, we need new construction.” Turns out, we’re the dummies. In a sea of faux French manses, the people here have managed to create a classic-looking Colonial Revival. When it comes to this house, it’s all about the columns.

ARCHITECT: Michael Malone
SQUARE FOOTAGE: 7,662
STATS: 5 bedrooms, 2 full baths, 2 half baths
WHY WE CHOSE IT: After checking out so much new construction, we wonder how on earth there are any quarries left. Still, this residence appeals to us. Here, Hill Country meets modern. There’s something almost industrial about it—is that a smokestack? And we love the windows.

WHY WE CHOSE IT: Our creative director loves this house. “It looks like it’s been there since the 1950s,” he says. At more than 4,000 square feet, it’s “huge” for West Kessler, he says, yet still tasteful. And let’s face it: you can’t beat the red door and the Stevens Park Golf Course location.

WHY WE CHOSE IT: With the fully grown trees, the amazing gardens, and the dignified digs, we nominate this estate for the next Merchant Ivory film. Let’s just hope Helena Bonham Carter and Emma Thompson will be mindful of the landscape during the croquet scenes.
