CandysDirt: No Expenses Spared in this French-Inspired Stone Manor Up for Auction

This is the perfect custom home with all the designer touches you would have built yourself if you had a huge corner lot in Preston Hollow and no expenses spared. The 7,990-square-foot home at 6507 Lakehurst Drive, which has four bedrooms, four full baths, and three half-baths, is up for an unbelievable no-reserve auction on July 20 by Elite Auctions.

Alicia Chmielewski, Elite Auctions Market Director tells us architect Don Caperton designed this magnificent French-inspired stone manor near Preston Hollow Elementary at Hillcrest and Walnut Hill for the sellers’ entertaining needs, so this home has seen several fabulous parties for holidays and events, as well as family gatherings through the years.

The 2002-built property by Encore Homes took two years to build, largely because of the numerous custom touches that are honestly pretty hard to find these days. For example, the entire home exterior is constructed of stone, not just the front and sides as you’ll commonly see. That’s a lot of stonework for a nearly 8,000-square-foot home on .389 acres. A limestone fountain graces the front circular drive that’s flanked by a pair of gas lanterns at the entry.

Inside you’ll find an impressive 7-foot Schonbek Swarovski-crystal chandelier with a genuine gold-leaf dome perched above the Italian marble foyer and custom floating iron staircase.

The formal dining room has plantation shutters and leaded glass doors that open to the bar/butler’s area and newly remodeled kitchen with brand new cabinetry, premium stainless steel appliances, and a built-in Miele coffee bar.
