A Legacy of Luxury: Hidden behind wrought iron gates, in exclusive Preston Hollow, is perhaps the most impressive and architecturally significant private estate in the country. Walnut Place, commissioned by Count Pio Crespi, is a breathtaking 1938 limestone mansion built by Maurice Fatio. Host to Presidents, celebrities and dignitaries, the Count entertained in, amongst others, the silver-leafed Art Deco bar room and the library paneled in 19th century Italian burled walnut.
From 2000-2003, a restoration and expansion took as many as 250 craftsmen, including builder John Sebastian, architect and designer Peter Marino and landscape architect Arabella Lennox-Boyd.
