A Beautiful Taste of the Big Easy at 3021 Southwestern

3021 Southwestern

This property at 3021 Southwestern Blvd. has an open house Sunday, April 23, from 2 to 4 p.m. 
Do you know A. Hays Town’s and love a Louisiana-style home? For more than 65 years, A. Hays Town built houses and buildings which were heavily influenced by the Spanish, French, and Creole history of Louisiana. More than 1,000 homes in Louisiana and the southern United States exist with his distinctive style and most have garnered design awards. Town dies in 2005 at the ripe age of 101!

How to describe his style? Classic Louisiana, full-length shutters as doors, dovecotes (little dove or pigeon towers, which were once considered a measure of wealth), 13-foot ceilings (better circulate air flow), plantation-style separate shutters, and brick floors with a special beeswax finish.

It’s warm and inviting, yes. A little Dilbeck-esque. But to have the best of all possible worlds, take Town’s Louisiana style and marry it to new construction with the latest bell and whistles and you have, well, 3021 Southwestern.

This is truly one of the most beautiful homes I have seen in a long time, it is just YUMMY! Even better? It now has a $175K price reduction!

Perfect square footage: 6,714 on a one-quarter Caruth Hills lot with a stunning swimming pool.
Aside: have I told you that we are circling back to luxury homes in the 6,500-square-foot range? This home is perfectly sized.
There are formals, of course, and oh-so-decked-out are they you could literally move in with just a toothbrush and a trunk. Cook’s kitchen, study, exercise and game rooms, wine room, five en suite bedrooms, including a master that will blow you away, Louisiana charm in the woodwork, wood floors, and millwork. Built in 2006, the home is well insulated and a picture of energy efficiency.

Also, the home is in the Highland Park ISD and is in fact, within walking distance of the shining new elementary school that will opens this fall. So If you have a three-year-old, you’d better nab this house before there is another spike in Dallas home prices OR interest rates!
About the elephant in the room: yes, the master is upstairs. You know how I feel about that: when your children are little, you need to be near them to hear them during the night. Besides, there is plenty of room for an elevator for later in life or to lug the skis down from the attic.
This is a home that can see you through many, many years of living and living well and make you feel like you are living in NOLA every morning you wake up. I can smell the Café Du Monde and taste the beignets…
3021 Southwestern Blvd. will be OPEN this Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. it is listed with Malinda Arvesen with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty for $2.675 million, a $175,000 price reduction. This is one you cannot miss!

  • Wish they would have left the single shutter off the window above the front door. Other than that, I love this style.
