Dallas’s Extraordinary 2021 Kips Bay Decorator Show House Hits the Market for $11M

In the fall of 2021, the second annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House Dallas took place in tony Preston Hollow. After 25 renowned designers from around the country descended on 5138 Deloache Avenue, a coveted Dallas address, the home was open to inspire and enchant visitors for a month with all ticket proceeds going to charity.

However, another major event for the property had yet to come: Its launch onto the market. But, now it has. Listed for $10.995 million in early February, the prestigious 1.45-acre estate has already received multiple offers.

Looking at the 11,185-square-foot stunner today, in many ways it is a new house from what show house viewers saw in September and October. That was intentional. If the Kips Bay Decorator Show House was a design dream world, with bold wallpapers and eclectic touches galore, it was time to bring the home closer to a buyer’s reality. It took listing agent Alex Perry of Allie Beth Allman & Associates months to make the changes needed to get it ready for the market.

“We gave it cohesiveness,” Perry shared, referencing how they pared down the décor and paint choices to help it flow from room to room. However, the mark the show house left is still present in all the right places.

Just look at the minimalist kitchen (designed by Gil Melott of Studio 6F), the moody and elegant laundry room (created by NYC-based Kathleen Walsh), or the basement’s cool living room and kitchen (transformed by Yates Desygn). Not to mention, the classic yet chic entry. The fresh updates, executed with help from Hudson Construction Group, Chad Dorsey Design, and stager Cindy Musgrave, serve to give buyers the chance for a cleaner slate to make it their own.

With the seller extremely philanthropically minded, a portion of the sale will also go to charity. Though quite a few offers have come in, Perry is still giving showings, so don’t lose heart if you’re smitten with this one-of-a-kind Dallas listing.
