IN THE LAND WHERE EVERYTHING’S BIGGER, A DALLAS ESTATE REACHES NEW HEIGHTS To be fair, calling 10711 Strait Lane an exceptional home would be inaccurate. After all, it’s the culmination of two exceptional homes combined into a veritable private resort in the exclusive Preston Hollow enclave, a mere ten minutes from downtown Dallas. In this neighborhood, which is sometimes referred to as Texas’ Billionaire Row and has been home to such figures as former President George W. Bush, T. Boone Pickens, and Mark Cuban, the sprawling 4.36-acre property with 37,000 square feet of living space and a full-blown waterpark in the backyard stands, quite simply, in a league of its own. Built in 2003 and designed by renowned Dallas/Fort Worth-based architect Robbie Fusch, the French-inspired home was already a showstopper on its own. When the property next door came on the market, it presented an opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind estate. The challenge was to seamlessly connect the two homes and transform the neighboring residence into the sort of unrivaled funhouse that previously only existed in every child’s imagination. To accomplish this, the designated recreational space was outfitted with an indoor basketball court, a gymnastics room with tumble-spring track flooring, a two-lane bowling alley, an observation room overlooking the outdoor waterpark and four guest bedrooms. But that’s just the beginning. Outside, the list of features is nothing short of awe-inspiring. Three waterslides, five cascading waterfalls and a lazy river with animatronics (those life-like robots you see at amusement parks) make for a backyard oasis to rival Disney World. The privateresort ambience is furthered by an expansive infinity-edge pool, a custom stone grotto, covered swim-up bar and palapa (an open-sided tiki hut) with an outdoor kitchen that allows for unforgettable outdoor entertaining on all scales. In the main residence, a family wing of six en suite bedrooms was carefully designed to maintain an intimate sense of connected living quarters. An escape within itself, the master suite recalls a bygone era of grandeur, boasting three handpainted murals, onyx-tiled Kohler digitized steam showers with speakers in both his and her bathrooms, as well as separate walk-in closets. Combining warm millwork with professional-grade appliances, the kitchen is portioned to accommodate gatherings of all sizes. Outfitted with three refrigerators, a six-burner Wolf gas stove, two ovens, and a custom copper vented range hood that are complemented by walnut hardwood floors and beamed ceilings with alder wood inlay. Displaying the highest craftsmanship within each room, the amenities found throughout the home leave nothing to be desired. From a stone-walled wine cellar accessed by elevator, a mirror-walled beauty room and dog washing room, it is a comprehensive lifestyle estate for only the most discerning. Additionally, the residence holds two movie theaters, a ten-car garage, a tennis court, a Crestron Smart Home system and state-of-the-art security systems. In the famed Preston Hollow neighborhood, 10711 Strait Lane is a peerless trophy property that draws one to the conclusion: indeed, everything is bigger in Texas.
