Location, location, location. There’s nothing more important when you’re looking for a home. Our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week is in a perfect location within Preston Hollow, and it’s a gorgeous homage to that 19th century classic European style we all love.
This magnificent two-story, 6,360-square-foot luxury home at 6410 Woodland Drive, is located right between two of the best shopping areas in town: NorthPark Center and Preston Center. It’s close to two excellent private schools: St. Marks School of Texas and Ursuline Academy. And it’s a hop skip and a jump to the Dallas North Tollway. The lovely Preston Hollow Park is just down the street. See, it really is in a perfect location.
Christy Berry and Jonathan Rosen with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty have the beautiful Austin stone home listed for $1.64 million, and it has everything an active family could ever want. With five bedrooms, five bathrooms, one powder bath, a home theater, a game room for the kids, a wine grotto for the adults, and a kitchen that fulfills the needs of the most particular chef, what more could you ask for?
“The entrance is remarkable,” Berry said. “I’ve never seen staircases like these. When you look up it’s so pretty.”
The first staircase you encounter heads up to the second floor while the second staircase leads from the second-floor landing, downstairs to the kitchen. Think about the practicality of this. The kids can run up and down to the kitchen from the game room and home theater, without impacting any entertaining going on in the living and dining areas. That’s simply brilliant.
One of the lovely things about this home is how the architectural detail has been balanced simply and effectively with natural light and pale paint colors. It prevents the intricate crown molding and paneling from becoming heavy and overbearing and allows for the eye to truly appreciate the fine craftsmanship.
The kitchen is great blend of textures from the beamed ceilings to the marble countertops. It fits the needs of both a family and a serious cook. There’s a nice compromise here from the totally open living plans we’ve seen so much of, to just a bit of a separation from the family room. We predict you’ll be seeing more of this because it makes sense to be able to hide the dirty dishes, but still be a part of the conversation!
This home just hit the market a few days after Christmas. Considering the perfect location and the flawless style, we don’t think it’s going to last long, so give Berry and Rosen a call for a personal tour.
