If you long for the laid-back luxury look of East Coast summer homes, you will love our Monday Morning Millionaire today. D Magazine named this Hamptons-style mansion as one of “The Most Beautiful Homes in Dallas” two years ago. Guess what? It’s even more beautiful now.
It’s not surprising this Hamptons-style mansion at 4337 Westway Avenue in Highland Park is a crowd favorite. When builder Jennifer Duncan and architect Lloyd Lumpkins team up on a house, you’ll get perfection every time. Have you noticed there are not a lot of female builders out there? I can’t figure it out, because they build impressive homes like this Hamptons-style mansion, and they hire great architects to make their dreams come true.
Duncan generally builds a home, lives in it for a while, then sells it. She’s essentially building each home for herself. If you are a regular reader of CandysDirt.com, you will know one of our mantras is if you buy a house a builder lives in, you’ll never have a worry.
“Jennifer is great to work with,” Lumpkins said. “She has an amazing eye, and her attention to detail is unsurpassed. She had been at a hotel in California and noticed the cedar shake shingles. When she was planning this Hamptons-style mansion, she realized that was the perfect look, and flew her framing crew to Montage so they could share the vision.”
That’s dedication to detail!
Lumpkins shares that dedication when he designs a home. He immersed himself into research on historic Hampton’s homes.
“One of the things you will notice on a Hamptons-style mansion is the gambrel roofs are curved. Most of the time, you see cheap versions that are built straight. This home is designed and constructed in the historically correct style,” he said. “When the house was built in 2013, it was the beginning of the light, bright, and white movement. Everyone wanted the transitional look, so there was a desire to do a transitional attitude of the white, bright, crisp, clean interior, but in a traditional style. This is why the Hamptons-style worked perfectly for accomplishing that.”
When I tell you, this home is a crowd favorite, I don’t mean just among editors and writers. It’s been a neighborhood favorite since it was built.
“The second people heard it was coming on the market, they all told me how much they love the house,” Compass listing agent Julie Provenzano said. “While there are so many beautiful homes in the Park Cities, this one is different. It’s classic, timeless, and sophisticated, but also has a casual elegance, and it’s family friendly.”
With 8,850 square feet, three living areas, two dining areas, five bedrooms, six bathrooms, two powder baths, a pool and guest quarters it has plenty of space for a large and lively family. So, it’s not surprising to find the last two owners have each had several children. Talk about growing up in an idyllic home!
“I love seeing how new homeowners make a space theirs,” Lumpkins said. “You have to make your house your home, your personal space. They were sensitive to the style of the house and respected what we did. It’s a good feeling when they do great renovations and updates.”
Of course, it helps to have a talented interior designer.
“When my clients bought this Hamptons-style mansion, they hired Lori Morris, an interior design firm out of Toronto,” Provenzano said. The dramatic lighting and stunning wallpaper are some of the touches Morris installed.
“I honestly think it’s an iconic house,” Provenzano said. “It’s a home that checks so many boxes, and it’s on a double lot, which is hard to find in the Park Cities. It has one of the best floorplans I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen a lot of beautiful homes!”
If you’re ready for the resort life and perfect spot to raise your growing brood, this is it. Give Provenzano a call and get a tour of this gorgeous $5.995 million Hamptons-style mansion at 4337 Westway Avenue.
