During the turn of the century, Tudor-style architecture was the barometer of a family’s wealth and class. If they could afford to build a large Tudor-style home, they had arrived. Many of the original Tudor-style homes in Dallas once played host to some of society’s most famed families, but rarely do you see this style emulated in today’s new builds. Marked by high-pitched roofs, exposed timbers, and stucco, Tudor-style architecture definitely has a certain cachet, and this listing from David Griffin & Company Realtor Robert Kucharski is a stunning example of an extremely well done recent build in the style.
“The quality of the home surpasses most others with an abundance of quality wood windows, traditional Tudor exterior with brick, stone, and half timbering, extensive interior wood mouldings, and custom crafted cabinetry,” Kucharski said of this Belmont Addition listing.
We’re thrilled to shine a light on this property, built in 2005 by English Heritage Homes, as our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. Once you see inside this beauty, you’ll understand why it’s such a fantastic opportunity. Where else can you find such great build quality with superb details, a full-featured floor plan, plus a family friendly backyard in such a walkable location? It’s so rare!
This home is such a classic, though the details really make 5910 Velasco shine. Located inside the Belmont Addition neighborhood of East Dallas, this four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath, 3,476-square-foot, Tudor-style home offers plenty of space without feeling cavernous or overdone. True to the architectural style, you get plenty of separation between rooms, though there are some modern updates that make this particular house family friendly. And what’s even better is that the house, listed at $995,000, blends so well with the neighborhood.
The home has two living areas with tons of built-ins, a gorgeous downstairs study, and large windows that look out onto the beautiful landscaped backyard, complete with pool.
“Hardwood floors can be found throughout the home except in bathrooms and walk-in closets, the kitchen features commercial-grade range, built-in refrigerator, Carrara marble counter tops, wine refrigerator, and custom lighting,” Kucharski noted. You also get a detached two-car garage that is so perfectly matched to the home’s architecture.
I love how warm and accessible this home is without feeling overly fussy. The white cabinetry in the kitchen and coffee bar works so well with the dark hardwood floors and brick fireplace. The French doors out to the patio are fantastic, and I love how all of the rooms in this stunning home have lovely details like wide moulding and trim, arched doorways, and beautiful chandeliers. You could host both cocktail hour and high tea!
There are two master suites, with the first-floor master enjoying direct access to the patio and pool through some lovely French doors. This en-suite has style for miles, and could easily be a guest suite, room for a live-in caregiver, or the perfect suite for multi-generational living.
Upstairs, there’s a second, much larger master bedroom that you’ll definitely want to call dibs on. “The second master suite has a separate sitting area over looking the pool and features a Carrara marble bath with separate shower and soaking tub,” Kucharski said.
I love the layout of this master bathroom! And just outside the sitting area is a lovely little balcony that overlooks the backyard.
What a lovely, manicured backyard and what a great Tudor in the Belmont Addition!
