About "Preston Hollow"
Elegance abounds in this luxury Mediterranean house plan. The exterior eludes astounding beauty from its variable shapes and sizes of windows, pillars, arches, the stucco facade and varying roof styles. The two-story covered entry opens into a two-story grand foyer with sweeping winding stairs that lead you to the second story. Large decorative pillars define the perimeter of the elegant dining room with a wall of windows in the curved wall and a 12 foot ceiling leading into the butlery with wine grotto and seating. Adjacent, through the gallery, is the circular kitchen with two dishwashers, built-ins, a pantry, free-standing island and plenty of granite counter space. An eating bar separates the gourmet kitchen from the cozy breakfast room. The breakfast room has a 12 foot ceiling, and is an open sunlight-filled space that accommodates both casual gatherings and dining. A wall of floor-to-ceiling windows in the adjoining family room blurs the lines between indoors and out.
