A fabulous stone mansion reminiscent of a French Chateau will soon be hitting the auction block, and it’s definitely worth marking the date in your calendar. 

The home is located at 6507 Lakehurst Avenue in Preston Hollow, one of the wealthiest and most coveted neighborhoods in Dallas. Conveniently situated just 5 miles north of downtown Dallas, the neighborhood is home to various high-profile homeowners, like Former President George W. Bush, Mark Cuban, Roger Staubach and Harold Simmons. 

The property will be going to auction without reserve on Saturday, July 20th, with Elite Auctions at the helm. Current owners George and Sandra Hallmark have lived in the home for the past 17 years.

The 7,990-square-foot home is situated on a corner lot nestled between Preston Road and Hillcrest, and features 4 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms and 3 half-bathrooms. It was built in 2002 by Oscar Ponder with Oncor Homes, and boasts a design by architect Caperton Johnson.

The home was built entirely out of stone, making it durable and easy to maintain, and offers easy access to upscale shopping destinations, good schools, highways and the Love Field airport. 

The interior of the home features a downstairs master bedroom, a guest suite, as well as a recently renovated kitchen that leads to the exquisite outdoor space. Right behind four sets of French doors, you’ll find a 38-foot-long covered loggia and veranda enclosing two entertaining areas, a fireplace, a full kitchen, and landscaped gardens complete with a tranquil limestone fountain.
