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


According to my good friend John Burgdorf at, 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…
