Our Monday Morning Millionaire is a timeless Tudor on Beverly Drive that has been completely updated by one of our CandysDirt.com Hot Builders, Tatum Brown Custom Homes, and is right up there on our top 10 wish list of places we’d like to live. There are dozens of reasons we’d love to live here, but we’ll give you four of them.
First of all, Beverly Drive — talk about a perfect location.
Beverly Drive is the crown jewel of Highland Park and Highland Park is the Beverly Hills of Dallas. In fact, Highland Park was laid out by Wilbur David Cook, the same fellow that designed the plan for Beverly Hills.
Second: education. Highland Park High School was rated one of the best in the nation by US News and World Report, and awarded a gold medal based on performance of students on state assessment tests and how well they are prepared for college.
Third: people watching. You’re as likely to rub elbows with a former president at church as you are to see a famous actress at the Highland Park Village Starbucks.
Fourth: Tatum Brown Custom Homes. Anything they touch results in sheer perfection.
It’s hard to beat Beverly Drive and it’s very hard to beat a good Tudor in our book. And this one at 4416 Beverly Drive is off the charts good. At 11,117 square feet with five bedrooms, seven bathrooms and four powder baths, there’s plenty of room for a large family and some massive entertaining in this three-story home.
“There is the timeless Tudor architectural style with leaded glass and 9-foot ceilings, yet it is light, bright, spacious, very ‘today’ and it has all the spaces you would ever need for anything you can imagine,” listing agent Chad Barrett with Allie Beth Allman said.
What other house has a four-car, climate-controlled garage that offers the ability to host huge functions? Yes, it’s that nice, and on a beautiful day you can just open up those doors and let the party flow to the huge lawn, pool, and cabana.
Those ice storms we seem to be having on a yearly basis now are no problem as the house is backed up with a gigantic generator. What that really means is the party never has to stop!
Barrett has the home, which sits on a double lot, listed for $6.9 million.
