"Walnut Place is a one-of-a-kind historic estate that required an equally unique owner who could appreciate the rarity of the offering and its future potential. Through its tremendous global outreach, Concierge Auctions has the ability to find that one perfect buyer, which is what happened here this week at Walnut Place. It’s a successful working relationship we hope to continue for years to come."
"After working together on what is now almost a dozen auctions, the Concierge Auctions platform never ceases to amaze me. Their global marketing outreach and HNW database is unrivaled, as is their cooperation with the brokerage community at large. Concierge has never auctioned a property without an agent partner, which makes the sales process seamless, collaborative, and ultimately, a true partnership." - Kyle Crews, Allie Beth Allman & Associates
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, the breathtaking limestone mansion designed in 1938 by world-renowned architect Maurice Fatio, was his final, definitive work—a lasting tribute to a bygone era of artistry and craftsmanship that shaped every detail of this irreplaceable residence. The home was commissioned by—and served as a luxurious outpost for—the Italian Count Pio Crespi, who had been sent to Dallas to oversee his family’s cotton empire. Host to Presidents, celebrities and far-flung dignitaries, the Count entertained guests in, among others, a lavish silver-leafed Art Deco bar room and a stunning library paneled in 19th century Italian burled walnut. From 2000–2003 a meticulous restoration and expansion took as many as 250 craftsmen to complete—including renowned Dallas builder John Sebastian, noted New York architect, and interior designer Peter Marino and London landscape architect Arabella Lennox-Boyd.
