Close to some of the best shopping, dining, and see-and-be-seen opportunities in the Park Cities, one University Park estate makes an impression in the St. Andrews Place enclave.
Located at 6016 Connerly Drive walking distance to Highland Park Village, this property is on a quiet street with little traffic, a place where you can hear the wind rustling the leaves through trees. Mature landscaping is part of the gorgeous drive-up appeal of this home, which sits on just over a third of an acre.
“Connerly is built with exceptional quality and an amazing understated elegance — the layout is perfect and includes every possible amenity and a location that can’t be beat,” said Ebby Halliday Realtors listing agent Mary Poss. “It’s nearly 9,300 square feet with five bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and two half-baths in a lovely setting in the heart of the city.”
This home has four living areas, two dining areas, and three stories with an elevator, three-car garage and so much more!
In addition to stately curb appeal with cast-stone, standing seam metal roofing, large windows, and a sliding gate with metal accents, fabulous outdoor living is a theme here. This includes a backyard kitchen, swimming pool, hot tub, chill pool, waterfall, gazebo, multiple seating areas, and a privacy fence. Established landscaping looks marvelous, too, and there is a slate patio leading to a porch and back entry. The green space is artificial turf, a low-maintenance choice for Texas summer heat.
Inside the house, a custom arched doorway and a floating grand stairway with wrought iron balusters anchor the entryway, where visitors get their first glimpse of inlaid hand-scraped hardwood floors and the formal dining room. Movable artwork to the left conceals the kitchen area and a second hallway leading to the home’s elevator, craft room, kennel, and three-car garage.
A living area offers beamed ceilings, a cast-stone mantle, and windows with views of back and side yards.
Amenities in the house include a Control4 state-of-the art smart home system and four satellite dishes. (Thirteen flat-screen TVs throughout the house are negotiable with the sale).
A wet bar has two wine chillers and a built-in ice maker — so convenient! — and a second living area features a custom tongue-and-groove wood ceiling and a fireplace with a floor-to-ceiling slate surround with bench. The billiard room/study is anchored by library shelving and sliding ladder, opening to a brick card room with built-in wine racks and cabinets.
On the second floor, the master bedroom impresses with built-ins, a coved ceiling, lots of windows, and an ensuite bathroom with a spa tub, dual sinks on large vanities, coffee bar, and refrigerator.
