An exquisite home in Dallas’ prestigious Old Preston Hollow neighborhood has hit the market, promising heavenly shade from ample trees, a lusciously landscaped backyard, plenty of natural light and vaulted ceilings.

The 7,004-square-foot dream home at 9909 Crestline Avenue brings an asking price of $2.395 million. The home is listed by Compass’ Amy Detwiler of the Detwiler + Wood Group.

This stunning home will be on display during The Preston Hollow Home Tour on Thursday, June 27 from 3 to 5 pm.

This is the kind of house you’re naturally curious to find more about.

The gracious drive up leads to a two-story traditional brick home, boasting five bedrooms, five baths and two half baths spread across an airy, spacious interior.

Kitchens are often dubbed the heart of the home, and the chef’s dream at 9909 Crestline does anything but disappoint. Sleek, professional grade appliances include a six-burner gas Thermador range with griddle and double oven, GE monogram built-in refrigerator and freezer, plus a three-tray Bosch dishwasher.

The kitchen is a chef’s dream with professional-grade appliances.

It is as beautiful and inviting as it is functional, with dual sinks, signature backsplash above the stove and a chic center island. An oversized walk-in pantry offers ample storage, and an inviting butler’s pantry and wet bar lead to the formal dining room.

The kitchen and oversized breakfast area overlook the family room with sweeping backyard views and soaring vaulted ceiling with stately stone fireplace.

The light-filled living room with arched windows, a carefully carved fireplace and broad mantle ideal for showcasing your favorite pieces of art, leads into the graceful formal dining room.

Gleaming hardwood floors shine throughout, a fitting match for the soaring ceilings, with an assortment of different finishes from room to room adding even more visual appeal.

The home’s features include playful spaces like the media room, fitted with an Epson projector, large screen and surround sound, in keeping with the whole home’s sophisticated audio system setup. Of course, there’s a serving area with a sink and refrigerator so you can get your popcorn and soda fix before you sit down to watch the big screen.

The game room is sure to satisfy, with enough room for a pool table or foosball table and more.

You can even take the competitiveness up a notch on the sizable sport court, the perfect spot for a dream home basketball setup.

On the other end of the spectrum, the study and built-in library provide retreats perfect for catching up on work or other projects.

The first-level master suite is a true retreat. Enjoy the jetted soaking tub or the impressive separate shower, expertly accentuated with dual vanities and spacious his and hers walk-in closets.

If you’re a fan of the great outdoors, you have two fantastic choices. You can enjoy a dip in the sparkling oversized pool and infinity spa with diving board, cleaning system, sheer descent waterfall and recessed tanning ledge, set off by the welcome sight of mood-setting tropical palm trees.

Or you can while away an afternoon or evening in the screened back porch, with its inviting fireplace, (the wiring for a television entertainment center is already built in) and stylish Pennsylvania Bluestone slate flooring. It’s an incredibly private space, overlooking the green backyard.

A bonus: the three-car garage includes a Tesla charger.
