Here is a traditional mid-century modern home that reflects much of original Preston Hollow. It makes sense that a quality custom-built home like this one would be built in the Biglot Addition of Preston Hollow East where one finds the largest lots which are almost one-half acre.

The Home of Della and Earl Lively

This is also the home that Della and Earl Lively lived in for 50 years. Della Lively was synonymous with Preston Hollow. Della and Earl founded Lively Realty. From their office in Preston Center, Della sold more houses in Preston Hollow than any other Realtor in Dallas. Della was one of the top producing agents in the country and over her career sold well over 1,000 homes in Preston Hollow. In other words, since she was aware of every property in Preston Hollow, it is noteworthy that this is the home she chose to live in and enjoy.
