Sometimes you see a house and think, “Wow, I could just move right into that one.” That’s the way we feel about this Sunnybrook Estates colonial revival at 5033 Brookview Drive.
Traditional homes create a strong pull. Many of us grew up in them, so they impart an immediate sense of home. But, we don’t want anything very traditional once we step inside. We want clean, sleek lines, museum-quality white walls, classic Carrara marble, and rich hardwoods.
We want this house.
“The finish-out on this home is beautiful,” listing agent Christine McKenny with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate said. “It has the charm of an older home with all of the amenities today’s buyer needs.”
Built in 1938, the 8,913-square-foot, two-story home has five bedrooms, six full and two half baths. There’s plenty of room for a large family and it’s in a prime location for easy access to some of the finest private schools in Dallas. In fact, this home is located between Ursuline Academy and St. Mark’s School of Texas, two of the most prestigious single-sex high schools in the nation.
Sunnybrook Estates is in the coveted Preston Hollow area or Dallas. It’s a who’s who neighborhood — but heck, so is most of Dallas. We don’t want to invade privacy here so let’s just say you’ll be in good company with a major-league baseball player and a major league “shark” nearby. It’s also just minutes from Dallas Love Field and seconds from the Dallas North Tollway, so getting anywhere is incredibly easy.The home has it all — a state-of-the-art security system, a game room, media room, exercise room, and best of all, a guest quarters. This one is in a separate wing on the first floor. That’s a nice change considering most are typically in a separate building on the grounds.
Speaking of grounds, this home sits on over an acre of land on a corner lot. There’s a gorgeous saltwater pool, loads of room for entertaining, and an absolutely huge play area. “It’s large enough to easily add a tennis court,” McKenny said.
McKenny listed this gorgeous Sunnybrook Estates colonial revival on Monday for $2.595 million. That’s quite a good price for this amount of land in Preston Hollow, so we suggest you give her a call sooner rather than later.
