“This is definitely the gem of Sondra Drive that is nestled in the heart of Lakewood!” gushed Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Matthew Edwards when I asked him about his brand new listing. The home is not only a newer build in one of Dallas’ most sought-after neighborhoods, but it the location is beyond enviable, making it a shoo-in for our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.
Of course, Lakewood is teeming with stellar homes of all ages and sizes, but homes on Sondra Drive are particularly sought after because of the private feel of the narrow, tree-lined streets. Plus, you’re so close to everything.
“This property lives wonderfully and has so many great amenities,” Edwards added. “It’s within walking distance to Lakewood Elementary and White Rock Lake!”
It’s true. Sondra Drive has twice the appeal of other Lakewood locations thanks to its proximity to Lakewood Elementary and its distance from the main thoroughfares that traverse the neighborhood. But if you’re a homebody like me, what you’ll really love the backyard, which has a great pool, spa, outdoor kitchen, fireplace, and a tidy lawn that will mean you’ll have plenty of room outside to keep both kids and parents happy no matter the season. No need for KayCee Pool memberships here!
“What sets this magnificent Mediterranean apart is the fluid floorplan with five bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, three living areas, two office spaces, a media room, and four car spaces,” Edwards adds. “The gourmet kitchen and breakfast area all open up to the great room with fireplace and wet bar.”
We also love how beautifully appointed the formals are in this 4,412-square-foot home, which has so many great details, such as beautiful custom cabinetry, two islands in the kitchen, a commercial-grade range, and three fireplaces. For families with small children, the floor plan is perfect. The master suite is upstairs, as is the media room. A balcony gives great views and there are so many great luxe finishes that we lost count!
“The master bedroom and master bathroom have a see-through fireplace and well-thought-out custom walk-in closet,” Edwards added. Notice the custom moulding and tray ceilings — an elegant touch.
Back to the backyard. Can you imagine the great shindigs you can host here? We have to wonder if the sellers aren’t more than a little sad to let go of such a great outdoor entertaining area. The pool is perfect for the entire family, and you could live all day outside and want for nothing.
“The private, breathtaking backyard is an oasis with an outdoor kitchen, fireplace, phantom screens, lighting, and a sensational pool, spa, and water features,” Edwards said.
