This Custom-Built Beauty in University Park Takes You on a Trip Across the Pond

Share News:

First impressions make an impact, and this home with English elegance dazzles from the start.

Custom built, it was designed by architect Richard Drummond Davis and took two years to complete. No detail was overlooked. The result is a home that is almost like a piece of art with gorgeous high ceilings, rich materials, and divine architectural details.

Be prepared to be transported to a stately English manor each time you come home to this inviting yet grand masterpiece. 

Stepping through the custom oak front door into your dramatic foyer will never get old. Serving up both charm and glamour, this entry has a show-stopping curving staircase with delicate leaded glass windows and 200-year-old columns from a Bishop’s House in England. Along with prestige comes that beloved feeling of being home as the shelves filled with your favorite books and family heirlooms are sure to always bring a smile to your face. 

After a long day of work or play, make your way past the gorgeous formal living room, dining room, and butler’s pantry to the gourmet kitchen. You can make snacks around the huge island with the kids then head to the cozy great room to unwind and catch up under the enchanting vaulted ceilings. When the weather is tempting, simply walk through the room’s French doors to bask in your outdoor oasis. The covered loggia holds a fireplace, grill, television, four fans, and plenty of seating, making it a true open-air living room you can enjoy year-round.  

Anytime you dine alfresco with family and friends, the surroundings will always impress. Perfectly trimmed boxwoods, stone pathways, and romantic fountains, what could be better? Just add a few cups of tea and a Sunday Roast to make it feel like you’ve hopped across the pond to England.

Though it is an English-style dream, the home’s Dallas location is unbeatable. You can walk to picturesque Curtis Park anytime for a game of tennis with friends or a relaxed picnic with the family. The trendy shops and restaurants of Snider Plaza are also just moments away, and so is University Park Elementary School. 

Arriving back to your 6,943-square-foot home’s handsome stone exterior will always be a welcome sight after your daily adventures.

It’s a home that will fit you through all of life’s changes, offering five bedrooms and five full plus two half bathrooms.
