A lavish manor sits magnificently atop a ridge in Dallas’ beloved Preston Hollow. Aptly named, “Dan Bois Crete,” which means “In Wood Ridge,” the estate at 9806 Inwood Road is unmatched in grandeur and luxury. Listed for $19,500,000, with a sprawling 5.3 acres and 14,139 square feet of living space, the estate is adorned with the splendor of a royal palace.

A picturesque drive along a tranquil creek reveals a truly breathtaking facade of classic stonework and slate roof. The circular drive and Italian fountain welcome guests in dramatic style. Inside, gold leaf-accented ceilings and original brass pieces adorn the entry hall. Venetian plaster corridors wind throughout the main level, seamlessly connecting the formal seating area, casual living area and third living room, all draped in rich textures of leather, hand-scraped herringbone and marble.
