The 7,000 square foot estate at 5122 Deloache evokes the best in Southern gentility.
Longing for an estate-quality home site, right in the heart of Dallas? You’ll find it all at 5122 Deloache, where a 1.4-acre estate, complete with tennis court, pool, guest house and gorgeous grounds awaits your personal touch.
Located in the heart of the original 500 lots of Old Preston Hollow on one of Dallas’s premiere streets, the estate is convenient to the Park Cities and downtown Dallas, as well as the city’s top private schools.
Unequalled are the lush landscaping and mature trees that make the property a singular standout. Majestic specimen pecan trees shade the property with their sweeping boughs, and meticulously tended and professionally landscaped lawns add a gracious touch that evoke the best of southern gentility. Brick walkways meandering around the property and private sitting areas scattered about create a verdant getaway – right in the middle of the city.
Commanding the estate is the 7000-square-foot house. Built in 1937 and updated over the years, the house boasts several living areas, a library, a game room, beautiful hardwood floors, a huge kitchen, casual dining area, breakfast bar and adjoining sitting room with a wall of French doors overlooking the rear grounds. The second-floor master retreat features a cathedral ceiling, fireplace, sitting area and balcony. Three of the other five bedrooms are also located on the second floor.
Ensconced behind a wrought-iron gate, the home is one of the area’s few original structures, surrounded by new construction on the neighboring estate lots. Classically styled and lovingly maintained, the home boasts the “good bones” typical of its traditional architecture, making it an ideal candidate for remodeling, renovation or even a complete rebuild.
