Although dreams of a holiday by the shores of Lake Como aren’t possible this summer, you can certainly own a home that offers resort-style living. Our Monday Morning Millionaire is the most beautiful Mediterranean mansion you’ll see anywhere.
Mediterranean homes today are so often a blend of both Spanish and Italian architecture, creating a uniquely American look. The exterior of this Mediterranean mansion has the classic Italian Renaissance villa’s hallmarks with a symmetrical facade and tall arched first-story windows. The barrel clay tile roof is not only beautiful but also durable and ideal for a Mediterranean climate. That means it’s perfect for Dallas!
What also works for Dallas is the way the interior of a Mediterranean home is laid out. At 9,343 square feet, with six en suite bedrooms, a powder bath, four living areas, two dining areas, and two wet bars, this Mediterranean mansion offers space for intimate living as well as large gatherings.
You know you’re in for something special when you walk into the dramatic entrance hall with 12-foot ceilings, imported French antique limestone floors, and a curving staircase with gorgeous wrought iron balusters. What denotes a successful and timeless interior is simplicity and elegance. Warm woods, neutral tones and understated clean lines never go out of style.
To gain some insight into the functionality of this gorgeous Mediterranean mansion, I had a chat with Teffy Jacobs, Vice President and Marketing Director for Doris Jacobs Real Estate at Allie Beth Allman and Associates.
Teffy mentioned several Dallas Cattle Baron’s Ball parties had been hosted here. If you are new to Dallas, this ball is the largest single-night fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. The pre-parties are as legendary as the actual event. So, know you can throw a heck of a soiree here!
Outside, you’ll really enjoy the resort lifestyle on a covered terrace with a pergola, an outdoor fireplace, a built-in grill, and dips in that gorgeous pool and spa!
With all the uncertainty in our lives, one thing is certain. Purchasing a timeless, move-in ready Mediterranean mansion on one of the best streets in Dallas, is always a smart move.
