Santa Claus Has His Pick of Chimneys at Park Lane Estate

Share News:

Park LaneWhen you’re looking for the perfect Christmas house, it probably doesn’t come more perfect than the 1939 estate at 4906 Park Lane.

The 4.9-acre property is beautiful inside and out, and is regularly spoken of with superlatives like stunning, beautiful, and exquisite.

In fact, Candy has said it is “one of the most significantly amazing homes in Dallas, and the tops of any ‘Most Beautiful’ list I might create.”

The home has been extensively revamped by Carol Boerder-Snyder and Will Snyder, but with an eye toward beautifully preserving the most impressive original features of the home. There are plenty of fireplaces to choose from for hanging stockings at Christmas, and enough space to easily display multiple Christmas trees, too.

“I really think the den fireplace was one of the original and maybe first Dilbeck fireplaces as he was an understudy to the architect, George Marble,” said Realtor Christy Berry with Compass, who listed the classic English country cottage in Preston Hollow’s Sunnybrook Estates.

There are four large bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and two half-bathrooms. The master suite has his-and-hers bathrooms and an extremely spacious closet.

There are two large living areas, a conservatory, a sunroom, and a formal dining room. The Provencal farm style kitchen is punctuated with gorgeous timber beams, and the range is tucked into a carved-out stone niche.

Outside, the grounds are lush and inviting, dotted with pergolas, a pool with a cabana, and guest quarters, as well as two putting greens and a tennis court.

And if you really love Christmas, Park Lane is also in the heart of some of the best neighborhood light displays in Dallas, and within driving distance of even more displays, making it possible to have a wonderful family holiday tradition.

And Christy has made it even easier to find all those locations by working with to create a handy map of all the neighborhood and city light displays in North Texas.
