Open house: Sunday, Feb. 25, 1-3 p.m.
Sitting on 0.37 acres in North Dallas’ Highland Estates neighborhood, the luxury home at 7515 Northaven Rd. was completely reimagined, fabulously reconstructed, and beautifully expanded in 2015. It’s located near Royal Lane and Hillcrest Road and has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bath, three living areas, two dining areas, and 4,189 square feet on one story, built in 1955.
This house is one big “wow” after another with an open floorplan centered around a stone two-sided fireplace between two living areas with ten-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, recessed lights, and a bright, sophisticated aesthetic. The eat-in kitchen is designed with an oversized and multi-level central island, quartz countertops, counter-to-ceiling contemporary tile backsplash, a butler’s pantry, and stainless steel professional appliances, including a gas cooktop and double ovens. A private master wing offers a retractable TV in the ceiling, white barn doors, custom built-ins in sitting area, huge custom closet, and laundry room. The ensuite bath stuns with its design, which includes a huge, curved shower area, soaker tub, chandelier, dual sinks, and large-format tile. The pool-sized backyard is newly fenced and has an automatic sliding gate.
