Share News:

Enjoy the ambiance of the stately, one-of-a-kind custom home of Texas Rangers Hall of Fame inductee and All-Star Michael Young for our next Staff Party.

Dramatic touches like a sweeping staircase, hand-scraped hardwood floors, and beamed ceilings create a warm and luxurious space with Old World appeal in 7,715 square feet at 3508 Bryn Mawr Dr. in University Park. 

Created by Emerson Residential in 2006, this house has five bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, one half bath, a designer kitchen, expansive master suite, and lovely outdoor area with a covered patio and fireplace.

“This University Park neighborhood is just a short commute to downtown Dallas and in the attendance zone for Highland Park ISD, a major draw for many,” said Alicia Chmielewski, Elite Auctions Market Director, Southwest. “An open floorplan and luxe amenities make this home appealing for the discerning buyer.”

This property will be placed for auction on Saturday, Sept. 1 (more on that below). Join us for the Staff Party from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 19, with refreshments provided. You can RSVP to Joanna England: In the meantime, let’s take a look.

Walk to Caruth Park from here or make a short drive to either North Central Expressway or the Dallas North Tollway.
Old World touches begin at the arched front door.

From the custom front door, created from a rich maple wood, to the slate roof, the curb appeal turns heads. The amenities inside are also fabulous, including three indoor fireplaces, audio jacks connected to speakers, hand-scraped and custom patterned hardwoods floor, recirculating water heaters, and decorative lighting, to mention a few.

At the front of the house, a dramatic entryway includes a gracefully curving staircase with decorative iron balustrades and a gorgeous wood floor. Off the foyer area are the formal dining room, and formal sitting room with fireplace and coffered ceiling, and a family room, also with a one-of-a-kind fireplace, beamed ceiling, and views of the backyard through oversized windows.

Carved stone fireplaces and coffered wood ceilings are just some of the custom touches throughout.
