Let’s just plunge right into this stunning new construction at 3108 Bryn Mawr in University Park, and pretend it’s a pool. We are in LOVE! The home is brand spanking new, sits on a huge Parkie-sized lot of 70 by 160, and is one of the latest architectural masterpieces built by Barrow Durrett custom builders. Not only is the home just damn good-looking, it features a downstairs master in a neighborhood where this doesn’t happen all that often.
Of course, the master could be in the tree-house: most people would give a limb to live on Bryn Mawr!
The brand new home has five full bedrooms, six full baths and two powder, all with generous proportions. Of course, combining beautiful form and function is not always easy, but these B-D guys sure pulled it off.
The home packs everything into 6,435 square feet of living space, right from the entry. There is a large formal dining room with a huge English-style, walk-in wine closet. So nice, great location right where you need it! The open-concept living room has a masonry fireplace, built-in shelving and windows overlooking the covered loggia and private rear yard.
Now let’s take a look at the kitchen: high-end, designer brand appliances, the kitchen showcases the commercial-grade Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, under-counter icemaker, secondary under-counter refrigerator (really nice!) and over-sized butler’s pantry with sink. Yes, a sink, how smart is that?
The large center island and open breakfast room provide options for both casual dining and buffet-style serving. There is a secondary back staircase, a mom’s office, half-bath for the pool, and mud room all located on the main level. Speaking of mudroom, after this wet Dallas spring, every house in the Park Cities ought to be required by code to have one!
Then there is your downstairs master paradise: a bright and spacious retreat with large glass doors opening to the outdoor living area. Off the master bed chamber is a master bath that is earth shattering: dual sinks, his-and-hers water closets (translation: a private potty for each inhabitant), walk-in and through car wash shower and soaking tub. The incredible “wardrobe room” is a combined walk-in closet and dressing room with a second laundry room.
The home’s second level features four bedrooms, each with en suite baths, plus spacious walk-in closets. There is another large laundry room — I’ve lost count — outfitted with cabinets, counter space and sink. There are numerous options for recreation, relaxation and quiet concentration within the study/home office, dedicated home theater and large open gameroom.
The backyard is also an entertainment lovers’ paradise, with the covered loggia and flat, board-on-board fenced-in yard providing ample room for pets, play or a future pool. You are just steps from the kitchen, or cook it all on the gas grill. You are in your own private resort, do whatever you want!
The price may surprise you: $2,985,000. That is not bad for brand new, high quality construction on one of UP’s most coveted streets!
Listed with Stevie Chaddick, an independent sales associate with the Dallas/Park Cities office of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, who tells me how wonderful this home is:.
“Every aspect of this home has been thoughtfully planned to meet the needs and preferences of today’s homeowners,” said Chaddick. “The finishes, fixtures and appliances are all of the very highest quality. These builders don’t do anything unless they do it not just right, but splendidly. Cutting corners is not an option, and it shows! That’s why I work with them! ”
Same can be said of the mortgage folks at Inwood National Bank: they don’t cut corners, and it shows!
