Grab your best face mask and head to University Park this weekend, where there’s an open house taking place from 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday, May 24. (Did you ever think that’d be a thing — having a face mask for public Park Cities occasions versus a quick run to Walgreens? Maybe it’s not.)
The High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters is a rare three-story, 6,442-square-foot home at 3404 Colgate Avenue listed for $2.945 million. The striking English Tudor, located in the fairway in University Park, has five bedrooms, five baths, and three half-baths on a quarter-acre lot.
Inside, you’ll find gorgeous wood herringbone floors, wooden plantation shutters, and all the luxuries you’d expect in a Park Cities home. The entry is flanked by formal living and dining rooms with fireplaces in both.
Just past the grand staircase, there is a climate-controlled wine cellar — very grotto-esque with stone walls and brick herringbone floors — and a separate wet bar.
The gourmet kitchen, remodeled in April 2020, features custom cabinetry with interior lighting and glass doors, quartz countertops, and stainless Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances.
The kitchen also has a generous walk-in pantry, butlers pantry, and casual dining space that opens to the living area. With cedar ceiling beams and the third of five fireplaces, the living room has multiple sets of French doors opening to the backyard retreat.
The second floor features four bedroom suites, a game room, and laundry room. The oversized master has vaulted ceilings, dual showers, dual water closets, garden jetted tub, and his & her closets. The third floor has a huge fifth bedroom and en suite bath.
Colgate Avenue is zoned for Hyer Elementary, Highland Park Middle School, and Highland Park High School.
