The season for parties is upon us, so I thought I’d share a few gorgeous homes — all listed by Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate — just begging to host some seriously lively shindigs this year. Each of these three homes is uniquely suited to holiday entertaining, with both grand and intimate spaces, state-of-the-art technology, incomparable views, and expertly designed interiors that make hosting holiday festivities a pleasure.
Striking Spanish Revival Style
It’s hard to believe the six-bedroom, 8.3-bath Spanish Revival masterpiece at 5326 Edlen Dr. is brand new. As in, built-in-2017 new. This vast (13,119 square feet), yet infinitely comfortable home boasts a seemingly endless collection of downstairs spaces, which are perfect for party guests’ tendencies to wander, mingle and admire. There’s a chef’s kitchen and a catering kitchen, a full bar area and a 1,500-bottle wine cellar that would make even the most serious connoisseurs’ and hosts’ eyes get wide. Smooth plaster walls, minimalist hardware, and traditional covered terraces are sure to impress. And if you’re hosting overnight guests, two staircases — or the elevator — will whisk them away to four ensuite bedrooms and a luxe media room they might never want to leave. If they do manage to venture out of the decked-out theater space, there are plenty of unique, comfortable spaces upstairs that are perfect for out-of-town family members to gather and reminisce about holidays past.
This home is listed by Ryan Streiff and Courtney Jubinsky with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate for $7.995 million. For more information or a private showing, call Ryan at 469-371-3008 or Courtney at 214-684-2575.
Contemporary Comfort and Sleek Style
One look at the façade of the contemporary masterpiece at 4130 Cochran Chapel Rd. and it’s clear that a party here would be filled with gorgeous Dallasites. Built in 2002, this sleek — but not stark — modern home is nestled into nearly 3.5 acres of perfectly landscaped greenery overlooking a creek. The entryway, living room, dining room, and bar each have one wall that’s practically all window, and the bathrooms have large windows you can gaze out of while brushing your hair. When you live on a massive wooded property, your guests can enjoy the novelty of bathing with a view. The residence, which is 8,984 square feet, evokes a hip, peaceful resort vibe, and with the privacy provided by all that acreage, one could hold a variety of larger-scale gatherings here this holiday season: a winter wedding, a graduation party, and a charity gala come to mind. With its clean-lined, light-filled spaces, classic minimalist building materials of limestone, steel, glass and alabaster, infinity pool and gorgeous landscaping, this is the kind of home where party guests request tours before even getting a cocktail.
This home is listed by Patricia Massey and Jennifer Haddock with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate for $5.695 million. For more information or to schedule a private showing, call Patricia at 214-697-7871 or Jennifer at 214-762-6213.
