I have, and always will maintain, that the two most-coveted streets in the Park Cities are Beverly Drive and Armstrong Parkway. Imagine my delight in finding this Highland Park luxury Mediterranean on the corner of these two sought-after streets! When you imagine a home on Beverly Drive, what comes to mind is luxury, of course, but also gracious living, elegance, taste, style, and sophistication. Absolutely every one of these elements is found in this 8,955-square-foot Highland Park luxury Mediterranean at 4343 Beverly Drive.
The other key feature of a home located in Highland Park is that it must suit a family. People move here not just for the address, but also for the Highland Park schools. With five bedrooms, four bathrooms, four powder baths, five fireplaces, a movie theatre, gym, and a six-car garage, you can fit plenty of family in this beauty!
Bradfield Elementary is within walking distance, and after you drop off the kiddos, you can walk on over to Highland Park Village for your morning latte.
“It’s a very warm home,” Allie Beth Allman listing agent Chris Blackman said. We all love white, light, and bright homes, but to keep that warmth, you have to add in some wood tones. They are done beautifully here with wood floors, beams, bookcases, and trim on doors and windows — all creating a balance that ensures that warmth.
The house was beautifully staged by George Bass Stage and Design. You may think it doesn’t look staged, but that’s because, contrary to popular belief, stagers don’t just empty out your house and bring in all of their inventory. They often work with existing furnishings.
“It was very much an editing process,” Bass said. “We used a combination of my modern inventory in conjunction with the sellers’ antiques. We installed white gallery-tufted sofas and some modern transitional pieces. When you have a traditional architectural residence and stage with pieces you would not normally think about, it portrays the property in a way that allows buyers to see it in a different light and opens it up to a broader demographic.”
Let’s talk about that kitchen island. Seriously. Look at it.
“I’ve only seen one other bigger than this,” Blackman said. “It was in Troy Aikman’s house. Most people have never seen an island this large.
The kitchen opens up into a casual family living area. All of the bedrooms are on the second floor. The garage, gym, and home theaters are in the basement. Don’t worry, an elevator will take you to all three floors.
Let’s not overlook the exterior of this Highland Park luxury Mediterranean. The mosaic-trimmed, vanishing-edge pool is not just pretty — it’s also smart. It’s equipped with a swim-against-the-current feature. “I call it the Michael Phelps training system,” Blackman said.
Listed at $4.477 million on the best corner in Dallas, it doesn’t get better than this!
