Open House Extravaganza: Here’s Where You Should Be Today, 6822 Mimosa. Basically Buy Greece for $1 Million +

Published April 2, 2012 by Candy Evans

This young lovely is for the Mediterranean lover in you. (And SUCH a bargain!) 5158 square feet primed and ready for a nice, big family, she was built in 2001 by Geoffrey Grant, who also builds in The Creeks of Preston Hollow, has a red tile roof and a brick driveway. Smooth limestone floors everywhere keep this home cool during hot summer months and make it seem more like a sophisticated beach house in Cannes year round. Six bedrooms, five baths and two half baths, great backyard oasis including the beautiful pool with a waterfall, mature landscaping and a true sense of privacy. And guess what? The price has been reduced so you can basically buy Greece for $1,089,000! 

I like the downstairs master, with knocked out spa bath, a hallmark of Preston Hollow properties. This home also features a guest or nanny’s room downstairs. The kitchen, which opens to the den, offers granite countertops, tile backsplash, a large island with a six-burner Dacor gas range, double Dacor ovens, a Sub-Zero, a built-in microwave, glass-front cabinetry and a household desk. All appliances are stainless-steel. The living room offers a full wall of 22-foot-tall glass overlooking that pool, plus of course a gas fireplace and a staircase. Upstairs includes an open living area overlooking the pool and the home’s remaining spacious, well-appointed secondary bedrooms. Open Sunday from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
