A Legacy of Luxury: Hidden behind wrought iron gates, in exclusive Preston Hollow, is perhaps the most impressive and architecturally significant private estate in the country. Walnut Place, the breathtaking limestone mansion designed in 1938 by world-renowned architect Maurice Fatio, was his final, definitive work—a lasting tribute to a bygone era of artistry and craftsmanship that shaped every detail of this irreplaceable residence. The home was commissioned by—and served as a luxurious outpost for—the Italian Count Pio Crespi, who had been sent to Dallas to oversee his family’s cotton empire. Host to Presidents, celebrities and far-flung dignitaries, the Count entertained guests in, among others, a lavish silver-leafed Art Deco bar room and a stunning library paneled in 19th century Italian burled walnut. From 2000–2003 a meticulous restoration and expansion took as many as 250 craftsmen to complete—including renowned Dallas builder John Sebastian, noted New York architect, and interior designer Peter Marino and London landscape architect Arabella Lennox-Boyd. 奢华遗产:位于富人区普雷斯顿霍洛(Preston Hollow),隐身于锻铁大门之后,这也许是这个国家最令人印象深刻、对建筑学意义最大的私人庄园。Walnut Place是由世界著名建筑师Maurice Fatio于1938年设计的一座壮观的石灰岩豪宅;他的这个封山之作可谓是对那个崇尚匠心技艺时代的永恒致敬,正是这种技艺成就了这座独一无二住所的每一个细节。这座庄园是意大利伯爵Pio Crespi委托建造的。当时他被派到达拉斯监督其家族的棉花帝国,从此把这座庄园当成一个豪华要塞。伯爵曾在此招待多位总统、名人和各界政要,接待场所包括一间奢华的饰有银叶的Art Deco风格酒吧和一座用19世纪意大利胡桃木做镶板的精美图书馆。2000年至2003年间庄园经历了一次精心的修复和扩建,这项耗时近3年的工程由多达250名工匠参与,其中包括达拉斯著名建筑师John Sebastian,纽约知名建筑和室内设计师Peter Marino,以及伦敦景观设计师Arabella Lennox-Boyd。 ​ 原价1亿美元 | 不设底价拍卖 | 中介商佣金2% | 开标激励12% | 买家附加费12%
