There are houses and there are homes.
Most of us wish to live in the latter — and a renovated 1920s traditional Highland Park mansion is now on the market to indulge those fantasies.
In a time of cookie-cutter neighborhoods where every house has the same floor plan and, at first glance, looks constructed from a DIY Ikea kit, this $6.8 million mansion is a breath of fresh air.
It’s time for a splurge, even if it’s only temporary. The landlord is now leasing the property for one year only at $15,750 per month.
I Just Need Some Space
The four-bedroom, three-and-one-half-bathroom abode at 3801 Maplewood Avenue is reminiscent of a very southern Tara-esque estate. Nestled on almost an acre, the interior features 4,266 square feet of space. The corner lot is just east of the gorgeous Dallas Country Club.
It’s not truly a Highland Park mansion if it doesn’t have at least two cabanas. The bonus cabana features two bathrooms and 693 square feet for guest quarters.
We won’t tell your mother-in-law.
A recent re-platting of the property combined it with the adjacent lot for 165 feet of frontage.
So if you need some alone time, we hear you, and you’ve got it.
Bright Lights, Big City
The price tag of this Highland Park beauty is in the range of what professional athletes spend on a dwelling, so it’s understandable to have high expectations.
There’s something inviting about an old home. It has a history. People lived and laughed and played there.
But don’t get too caught up in that “lived in” vibe. This place also has 10-foot ceilings, spacious rooms, French doors overlooking the backyard, a pool, and a three-car garage.
You’re two miles away from a killer souffle, a leisurely Sunday brunch, and a fresh-baked loaf of bread. Students may attend the A-ranked Highland Park ISD or one of many private schools including Fusion Academy, Hillier School, or Holy Trinity Catholic School.
