When we imagine the perfect country home outside a scenic little European village, this eclectic country French estate is exactly what comes to mind. Fortunately, you won’t need a passport to enjoy 6803 Lakewood Boulevard. You need to give David Bush with David Bush Real Estate a call and book an appointment.
Think about that. The same family has owned this exquisite property for four decades.That means it’s been lovingly cared for and meticulously maintained. Sitting on almost an acre of flawless grounds, the exterior is coated in a frothy meringue of white stone highlighted with gorgeous leaded glass windows. It’s truly picture perfect.
“So many people called me about it when the for sale sign went up and told me it was always one of their favorite houses in Lakewood,” Bush said. “It really is a marquee signature Lakewood landmark. It has the old world charm, craftsmanship, and character and a magnificent lot. It’s just stunning.”
Built in 1935, it has the attention to detail created when true artisanship was the norm in luxury construction. There is a casual elegance to the interior, from the stained glass insets in the original entry door and the detailed millwork on the staircase, to the exposed beamed ceilings and use of repetitive arches both indoors and out.
There are four bedrooms, five bathrooms and a powder bath in the 5,218-square-foot home. The secondary living area has a private entry from the pool and garage. We’re in love with the heavily beamed master suite, complete with a fireplace and balcony. It’s a little slice of heaven.
The grounds are lush with multiple areas for entertaining, and of course, a sparkling gem of a pool front and center. No need to worry about visitors as there is a 445-square-foot guest cottage on the grounds, so much nicer to give them their own space.
Location is of course always key and it does not get better than Lakewood Boulevard. You can walk to White Rock Lake and bike to Lakewood Elementary, and of course you are minutes from downtown and the Dallas Arts District.
When you think about a family loving a home enough to stay in place for 40 years, you realize this really is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own one of the most unique properties in Dallas.
