Hot Property: A Rom-Com-Ready Spanish Colonial in Preston Hollow

{{ oneIndex }} / {{ images.length }}


We’re all longtime fans of director Nancy Meyers’ work—The Holiday, Something’s Gotta Give, It’s Complicated, the list goes on. In addition to their meet-cutes and sweet storylines, they all have another signature element in common: gorgeous homes. (Those gorgeous homes also tend to include gorgeous kitchens, which the director is totally cool with you fixating on.) And 5940 Watson Avenue, a modern Spanish Colonial right in the heart of Preston Hollow, is ready for its closeup.

With its clean-lined windows and stucco exterior, the home exudes the beauty of modern builds while still nodding to its Spanish Colonial roots with archways and a red-tile roof (not to mention, the landscaping is already perfect). Inside, the 7,216-square-foot home is ideal for entertaining. Find six bedrooms—each with its own full bath—three half-baths, two laundry rooms, a workout room, media room, detached cabana, outdoor grill, and a three-car garage. Your guests may never leave.

And maybe that’s OK! You can blast your 1960s crooner tunes while you bake chocolate croissants in the decked-out kitchen, complete with Sub-Zero Wolf appliances and an oversized pantry. When those babies are done, enjoy them in your vaulted-ceiling dining room for added ambience. The first floor is outfitted with natural stone floors, and throughout the house, you’ll find custom oak cabinetry and ironwork. Need a little private time? Unwind at the day’s end from your private courtyard off the master suite. That’s what we call a Hollywood ending.

Wanna take a peek? Catch an open house this Sunday, June 30, from 2–4 p.m.
