The gracious estates along Strait Lane invite a certain mystery. Set back from the road with ample acreage, these properties are some of the most exclusive — and luxurious — in Dallas.
Today, I’d like to tell you about one that truly impresses. Driving up to 4949 Calleja Way through tall and ornate gates, magnificent views delight on the way to the impressive front elevation and an elegant, beautifully constructed house. This property actually has two addresses, the second of which is 10400 Strait Lane; it’s at the end of a winding cul-de-sac, of which few are aware.
Nestled into Bachman Creek with lush landscaping, this breathtaking, yet unostentatious, home reflects a serene, enchanting aesthetic. It was designed by Larry E. Boerder Architects as a custom home for the present owners in 1999. Every amenity and comfort you could ever want, and newer Smart Home features, are encompassed in a highly accessible design and layout.
“People are searching for more authenticity in all things, and this house exudes fine quality throughout without being at all pretentious — it’s a house for our times,” said listing agent C C Allen with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. “The degree of integration and design that’s present inside the house and out — it’s absolutely flawless.”
With six bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, two half baths, six living areas, five dining areas, and 12,234 square feet in three stories, there’s no shortage of space. But it doesn’t feel overwhelmingly large or “too much” in any way. In fact, this house feels perfectly right-sized.
“The rooms are elegantly proportioned and cohesive with a seamless design plan,” Allen said. “An elevator to all three floors means all spaces in the home are easily accessible, as well.”
Seeing is believing with this Strait Lane home — let’s take a tour.
