Located at 9934 Hathaway, this stone and wood siding transitional has great siting to buffer you from the nearby traffic so you can enjoy every inch of space inside and out. Commissioned by a very tasteful client in 2014, this beauty has all the trappings of luxury and style.
“I have known and worked with Ellen since 1993, and she is an excellent builder,” says Virginia Cook Realtor Greg Pape. “She has successfully built many homes in both Preston Hollow and Park Cities.”
Pape is listing this four-bedroom, four-full-and-one-half-bath, 5,622-square-foot home for $1,699,900, which comes out to $302 per square foot. Considering the lot is .8 of an acre, that’s definitely a fair number. The drive-up is great thanks to the spacious crushed granite drive and front water feature. The home has a presence, that’s for sure.
Pape notes that you get formals and family spaces as well as high ceilings and hand-scraped hardwoods, all of which makes for great entertaining and everyday living. There’s Carrara marble in the master bath and kitchen plus custom cabinetry everywhere. You can’t miss the bonus spaces, like the wine nook just off the dining room, the media room, and the lovely covered patio just off the great room.
The master suite is on the first floor, and it has a five-piece bath and a huge 25 x 14 bedroom. Really, what more could you want in a master retreat other than a place to soak your tired muscles while you empty a bottle of prosecco after a tough week, and then a bedroom that will fit your California king and your fainting couch? Plus, you get a closet with a marble-topped island. What does it say about me that I am absolutely intrigued by that detail?
And of course, be prepared to fall in love with the backyard, as it has the most perfect pool and a great little garden. What do you think of this home?
