A slice of local history has hit the market, with the Highland Park estate of the late Dallas real estate developer and art collector Trammell Crow and his late wife Margaret now listed with Allie Beth Allman & Associates.

Located between Preston Road and Turtle Creek Boulevard, the 10,000-square-foot Tudor-style house has a price tag that reflects storied history, palatial size, and tony location: at $59.4 million, this is one of the highest priced properties ever listed in the area. As of now, this is an off-market listing not yet in the MLS.

The Armstrong Bradfield Preschool Association puts on one of the best holiday home tours, and this year’s stroll through Highland Park will be a tremendous one! The Homes for the Holidays Home Tour is in just two weeks, and you can get your tickets for the Friday, Dec. 5 fundraiser for this active early childhood PTA right here. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 on the day of the tour, which runs from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Of course, you have to go to this year’s tour if you missed out on last year’s thanks to the insane ice storm that shut down North Texas. Don’t miss out!

In the lead-up to the home tour, we’re chatting with a few of the homeowners who have graciously opened their doors to all the folks who want to ogle and gawk at their beautiful abodes for a good cause. Today we have Rachel Stephens on the blog, whose home on McFarlin was teased by Candy just a short while ago. Rachel, who has always had a passion for design, enlightens us on what to look for when you tour her gorgeous traditional. Jump for more!
