So, who throws parties nowadays? Socialites, executives, parents, Realtors, and the well-connected, that’s who. And this home, with its endless living areas, gorgeous formal dining room, spacious kitchen, and beautiful game room and study, is perfect for someone who wants a home in Lakewood where they can host any occasion with aplomb.
It’s just the kind of home for executives who want to relocate to a fantastic Dallas neighborhood before they buy. Perhaps they haven’t found their dreamhome quite yet, and they want a great place to lease in the mean time. Well, you can’t do much better than 6909 Tokalon, a beautiful French colonial-style home on Lakewood’s prettiest street.
Lovingly updated through the years, this home has so many fantastic rooms where you can show off your collections and artwork. It’s a spacious 5,838 square feet with three bedrooms with five full and one half baths, three huge living rooms, a study, a gameroom, both formal and casual dining, a well-appointed kitchen and a huge master suite. It’s available for lease through David Griffin for $6,500 a month, which to me, seems like quite a deal!
Built in 1936, this home has so much historic character, but not so much that keeps it from feeling modern and flexible. The home sports a gracious foyer and beautiful staircase in the front, huge windows, and warm hardwood floors. Each room feels cozy and yet spacious, and while this house has plenty of room for all of your belongings, it doesn’t feel crowded. And the gameroom upstairs is perfect for hosting poker night without invading the peace of the downstairs living area. You won’t even know they’re up there!
The kitchen is fantastic, both functional and somewhat open, with plenty of cabinet space. The appliances are perfect, too, with stainless steel, professional grade built-ins that will be reliable no matter the size of the crowd you’re hosting. The herringbone brick floors, with their gorgeous patina, are a fantastic rustic design feature that perfectly complements the pristine white cabinets and butcher block counters. Just imagine having your family in from your hometown this Thanksgiving after settling in. You can chill as many bottles of wine as you need, have enough cooks in the kitchen that it feels cozy but not claustrophobic, and then enjoying too much pie and port afterward.
The master bedroom is gigantic at 25 x 15, and is a true retreat that has a casual place to lounge. The master bath has a spa tub and full-sized frameless glass shower, with a huge mirror and excellent lighting. But during the Indian summer and spring, the back porch will be perfect for relaxing. You can admire the lush landscaping and attention to detail in this beautiful, stone-clad home. Truly, this is a once-in-a-lifetime lease that you’ll never regret!
