Grand Scale

The home is built on a grand scale, with 40-foot-high ceilings and a foyer that includes busts of famous composers inserted in the ceiling. Highly detailed paneling and moldings appear throughout the house, as well as enormous floor-to-ceiling, beveled glass windows that look out to the terraced gardens.

Situated on an acre of land in the high-end Dallas neighborhood of Old Preston Hollow, the grounds of Mary Kay’s home were designed to mimic the San Simeon estate, William Hearst’s famous home in California.

The former Mary Kay home was redone by the current owner with new flooring, paint, updated kitchen and geothermal system for heating and cooling.
