A wonderful opportunity to own a piece of Preston Hollow history. The property is the original home of John Desco for which the street is named and goes from Desco to Watson. It provides a wonderful opportunity to own a large piece of property (1.13 acres) to either renovate the stately home or build from scratch. The property is already platted as two lots (each are ~149'w x 166'd). It allows for the new owner to have an address on either Desco Dr or Watson. The carriage house is a wonderful addition...
