The LUXE Show Home
The LUXE Show Home in Dallas used awe inspiring design to benefit Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.
In 2008, Mark completed the LUXE Show Home: an airy Italian estate that blends classic design with luxury amenities. With sponsorship from LUXE Magazine, Mark teamed up with noted architect, Robbie Fusch and interior designer, Deborah Owens. Their goal was to build a stunning home that would awe a sophisticated Dallas audience and raise no less than $1 million for Scottish Rite Hospital For Children and the Junior League of Dallas.
In order to build the ultimate show home, Mark pushed creative boundaries and traveled the world. Mark’s previous work had already proved his ambition. Before embarking on the LUXE Show Home, he had just completed a $40 million estate. That home—an elegant palazzo meets child’s fantasy world—embodied the dream of its owners and their three children. During the design process, The LUXE Show Home began to take on a very unique characteristic, reflecting aspects of Mark’s own personality.
The finished product is a Preston Hollow estate that delights and amazes. In a style that Mark dubbed “livable Dallas,” The LUXE Show Home incorporates a stunning courtyard, arch-lined breezeways, and treasures that Mark curated from places as distant as South Africa. World-traveled golfers, lovers of rare wines, car collectors, bibliophiles, and even “closet” singers are thrilled with the unique features found at every turn of this 15,000 square foot home.VIEW GALLERY LUXE MAGAZINE
