If the picture below looks familiar, that’s because you’ve seen this Texas beauty in the news more than a few times. Known as the Crespi Estate, this gorgeous Dallas home was featured in a Forbes video (click the image below to get a virtual tour.)
Once featured in Time Magazine as America’s Most Expensive Home, Sebastian had the opportunity to partner with famed New York architect Peter Marino on the renovations of the Crespi Hicks estate. (He’s known as the go-to architect for the most exclusive fashion brands. Christian Dior, Bulgari, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Hublot, Zegna – Marino’s firm has designed boutiques for all of them.)
His residential architectural clients reportedly include billionaires as well as some of the most recognizable celebrities in the world, but Marino is the model of discretion and won’t discuss his private clients.
Sebastian Construction Group, together with Marino and London-based landscape architect, Arabella Lennox-Boyd, completed a 33-month renovation and expansion project, creating what Private Air Luxury Homes called ‘The Finest Estate Home in America.’
Commissioned in 1938 by Italian Count Pio Crespi, the estate was later purchased and renovated by Dallas businessman and sports enthusiast, Tom Hicks. The property is a rare find in the Dallas area – a 25 acre estate just minutes from downtown. It includes a 10 bedroom main house, guest house and pool house.
In 2016, Mr. and Mrs. Hicks sold this one-of-a-kind property to Texas banker and investor Andy Beal, who recently sold it.
