This 9,099-square-foot home in Preston Hollow has ample room for entertaining indoors and outdoors. Adorned with stone and accented by turrets, the exterior design gives the home a stately look. The home was built in 1992 and sits on 1.02 acres.
The grounds of the property at 5424 Edlen Drive were designed by Harold Leidner. Homeowner Chart Westcott, the co-founder of hedge fund Ikarian Capital LLC and brother-in-law of “The Real Housewives of Dallas” star Kameron Westcott, said the home’s entirely turf backyard has been beneficial for entertaining and easy to maintain.
“Once you have a yard like that, you really don’t want to go to anything else,” Westcott said. “It’s such a wonderful thing for parties. Dogs love it. It’s low maintenance.”
Outside, you’ll find a pool and spa, a pool house and a sport court. The pool house has a living space and full bathroom inside with a wet bar, a fireplace and a covered living space on the outside.
Listing agent Kelli Green of Allie Beth Allman & Associates said the home’s architectural design makes it unique. The home has turrets, vaulted ceilings in some rooms and multiple fireplaces.
The home has five bedrooms, six bathrooms and three half-bathrooms. An arched front door leads into the home’s foyer, where you’ll find a striking staircase that winds up to the second level. The stone flooring in the foyer ties the interior design to the stone on the exterior. The home’s formal dining room is next to the foyer and gets plenty of light from windows that overlook the property. The formal living room has a unique design — the library on the second level is open to the living room below, which brings in more light and adds eye-catching detail. The second-level library has built-in bookcases and an Old World feel.

The home’s kitchen has ample cabinet and countertop space and a designated breakfast area on one end. The kitchen has easy access to the formal dining room and the family room. A striking stone fireplace sits on one end of the family room, accented by a wall of stonework and a vaulted ceiling. There are also an office and a wine room on this level.
Of the home’s five bedrooms, the primary suite is the only one on the first floor. The bedroom is spacious, with a two-sided fireplace on one end that sits between the bedroom and a living area. The remaining four bedrooms are on the second level of the home along with an exercise room, a game room and a media room, according to the listing.
The home is on the market for $6,040,000.
