Candy Sale of the Week: Covet This Garden of Eden on Edlen. Dallas Real Estate News

Published September 30, 2011 by Candy Evans

We used to live within a block of this fabulous home, back when the grand homes built in the 1930′s and 1940′s filled the yummy one acre plus lots of Old Preston Hollow. Slowly, over the last 10  to 15 years, the older homes have come down and the new ones have gone up. BTW: any of you get tutored — or had your children tutored– by Elissa Sommerfield? Stay tuned: she’s moving out of the area.

I watched 5424 Edlen being built in 1992 and confess: I walked through it every chance I could get. It’s just beautiful and tasteful and I hate that it’s on the market for $4,450,000. Where’s Bob Shiller when you need him — will you take half price?

Remodeled in 2009, the home looks old-world but is so energy-conscious inside, you would think the Jetsons live here. The master bedroom is downstairs with a glorious sitting room and complete private spa off the huge master bath. (Just look at that gorgeous tub!) This way your masseuse, private trainer and hairdresser come to  YOU! Upstairs are four bedroom suites, and two have fun loft space where kids can hide.There are more than 9110 square feet on 1.02 acres, trees, lush landscaping, a media room, playroom, exercise room, stunning library gallery, formals of course, a wine room, screened porch, and cabana with complete outdoor kitchen. Plus it’s on the chi chi corner of Edlen and Hollow Way.

Robert and Maureen Dechard used to live down Hollow Way from this home, and we had the best Halloween parties ever. So good, in fact, no one even wanted to go trick or treat! The lucky agent on this home is Fran Cox with Allie Beth Allman — former agent Joan Eleazer with Briggs Freeman.
