ARCHITECTURALLY IMPORTANT HISTORIC PRESTON HOLLOW ESTATE
9200 DOUGLAS AVENUE, DALLAS
ENCOMPASSING MORE THAN TWO ACRES FROM DESCO TO WATSON DRIVE
A larger replica of the Natchez plantation home "Linden", this columned mansion, originally built in 1924 by architect Gilford Scurlock, has
been owned by only four families including current owners Cleal and Mitzi Watts. Its 2.16 acres of Watson landscape-illuminated grounds are graced
with formal gardens, a fish pond, security fencing, and a 50-foot mosaic porcelain tile swimming pool where Gable and Lombard were guests of a
previous owner. This unique estate also includes a stable, artists' studio, two-basements including a bomb shelter, golf-course type sprinkler system,
a gardener's house and two-bedroom, two-story servant's quarters, and a nature preserve where one can spot morning dove and quail.
The 7-bedroom, 7 and 1/2 bath slate-roofed home is filled with stunning details of Baccarat, Tiffany, Waterford, and Austrian crystal and custom
Italian chandeliers, hand-carved mantles and stained glass cabinets. Other features: 4 wood-burning fireplaces, wood paneling, a gracious foyer, a
solarium with antique French beveled leaded glass windows and doors and a 60-foot library/den with a fossil stone fireplace with black slate hearth
and wet bar, 3-car garage, and recently updated heating and air conditioning systems.
