Pictured is a 26,000 square foot mega mansion being built in the affluent Preston Hollow neighborhood of Dallas, TX.

FROM CANDY EVANS OF SECOND SHELTERS:

According to my good friend John Burgdorf at NorthTexasLuxury.com, this mammoth beast is under construction at 9807 Meadowbrook Drive in Old Preston Hollow. (As I told John, PH, not Park Cities. But when you live outside of Dallas, all our “communities” meld together.) Funny thing, I was at a party right next door to this spread this weekend and did not see it — it is on a huge lot, 4.3 acres, and well-hidden. The Barretts are nearby in a 61 year old, 7000 plus square foot home on Chatham Hill Road. Under construction a whopping 26,063 sq. feet of total living space.  The 2 1/2 story home includes 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, and 8 fireplaces.  The estate is owned by renowned art collectors Richard and Nona Barrett, who we guess will line all 26,000 square feet with wonderful art.  The appraisal value for this year is $10,959,520.  The Barretts are already paying $62,000 for the privilege of living on Chatham Hill Road. And that, my dear readers, is just a drop in the bucket…

    Also hear the home will include a 100 seat orchestra room and a 25 ft. long kitchen island, that coming from my good friend Candy Evans!

      If it has a 100 seat orchestra room (or an orchestra room at all) then I already down like it! Pointless!

    this house will probably never be photographed other than in a shelter magazine. it’s under lock and key and has security positioned during construction to keep people out. I don’t believe the 100 person orchestra pit no matter how large this house is. (but what do I know?) it’s has been designed by pre-eminent Dallas architect Robbie Fusch and will be in an 18th century French design. http://fuscharchitects.com/ he’s designed many of the largest Dallas mansions and another of his creations is an Italianate design being built in Highland Park by the same builder. it probably measures between 18-20k sq. feet.
