Property descriptionThis classic Georgian Old Preston Hollow estate on 1.44 acres of impressive landscaped grounds is perfect in every way. Totally re-imagined by the late noted architect Cole Smith, FAIA in 2008, 5138 Deloache Avenue features all the warmth and craftsmanship of his most treasured homes along with every possible convenience. Famous for his impeccable attention to every detail, his eye for beauty and his commitment to historical integrity, he has recreated a home that is rarely available – one that will be cherished by its owner for years to come.Gorgeous landscape design surrounds this gated estate with circle drive and sets off the stately yet unassuming traditional brick home. The beautiful two-story foyer, entered through a handsome Regency front door, enjoys a lovely curved staircase with antique patterned limestone flooring. Flanked by beveled glass French doors, the foyer opens to beautiful formals distinguished by hardwood floors, ambient lighting and custom millwork consistent with the period. The appealing formal living room includes a carved wooden mantle, marble surround and a pair of perfectly lit bookcases currently providing a showcase for a plate collection. A wet bar is adjacent. The handsome paneled library wrapped in walls of bookcases leads into a very nice screened porch with fireplace that overlooks a private terrace with firepit. Remarkable hand-painted De Gournay wallcovering creates a distinctive formal dining room, with a more cozy dining space available in the breakfast room with walls of windows overlooking the pool and rear gardens.
Conveniently located between the breakfast room and the den is the sunny kitchen with Carrera marble countertops and stainless steel appliances. The spacious center island with vegetable sink is surrounded by a commercial grade gas range, warming drawer, double ovens, dual dishwashers, separate Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer and additional refrigerator drawers. The well-organized butler’s pantry includes china and crystal display cabinets and Pacific-cloth storage. Immediately to the west overlooking the pool and lawn is the family room with vaulted ceiling, picture frame paneling, large fireplace and chandelier. French doors lead outside to the Pennsylvania bluestone terrace with dining area stepping down to the Lambert’s pool and attached spa with wide seating space designed to complement the home’s traditional architecture.
Off the den is a study/home office with a wall of bookcases. Completing this wing is a bedroom and full bath and private entrance accessed by the side drive, an oversized laundry room with a drip-dry shower and lots of storage and a pool bath with shower and wet bar with refrigerator. An attached climate-controlled two-car garage includes ample storage space on the level above.
Upstairs on the east side, the serene master suite features a coffered ceiling, generous sitting area with fireplace surrounded by a carved marble mantle. The splendid marble master bathroom has a coved ceiling, dual vanities, heated floors, a jetted tub and oversized shower.
The well-appointed closet spaces offer numerous storage options in multiple rooms and natural light completing the master suite in style. Three additional bedrooms, all with Carrera marble bathrooms and delightful wallpapers are also on this floor. A separate staircase along the west wall of the den leads to a separate apartment with living and dining areas, kitchenette, full bath and bedroom.
