House of the Month: 5350 South Dentwood Drive

This spectacular Midcentury Modern home, on one of Preston Hollow’s premier streets, was house made for cocktails and conversation — and ultra-luxurious living.

Designed in 1951 by Robert Goodwin, the sprawling showplace, listed for $4.495 million, is sited alongside a beautiful creek. Its formal rooms, vintage bar, and large den were all designed for grand entertaining or intimate occasions, and offer views of lush landscaping, trees, and a serene pond. Dramatic walls of windows and doors connect the inside and outside, seamlessly. Original, extravagant finishes and details are everywhere, including the Roman brick exterior, terrazzo floors with brass inlays, glamorously backlit coffered ceilings, and pecky-cypress soffits. This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to own such a stylish and significant home.
