Share News:

Here’s a bonus Friday edition of the Inwood National Bank Home of the Week: an exquisite French Provincial home at 3612 Haynie Avenue in University Park, listed by Mohammed Nour Jaber of Compass Realty. The 1988-built home has four bedrooms, three baths, and two half-baths with 4,940 square feet, and is listed for $2.15 million.

Perfect in symmetry and textbook French Eclectic style, this masterpiece was designed by Larry E. Boerder, architect of some of the most beautiful Park Cities homes, including Troy Aikman’s $14 million Mediterranean manse.

Step through the solid oak doors, oak moldings, and towering ceilings, and you’ll find stunning details throughout. To the left, an elegant home office behind pocket doors with a fireplace, a wall of built-in cabinets, and narrow double doors that open to the hallway with powder bath and wet bar.

To the right, a spacious formal dining area with fireplace, built-in hutches with architectural detail, solid shutters, and sunburst chandelier that really pops against the charcoal gray-painted ceiling.

The dining area gives way to a beverage station with refrigerated drawer and the kitchen, with granite countertops, tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances.

The living area, which looks out onto the patio and pools, features an antique fireplace mantle from a chateau in the Loire River Valley of France, flanked by windows with hand-blown detail. It’s a perfect example of an open floor plan that combines European charm with American comfort.

The primary suite has these darling window insets with adjustable shelves and bench seating storage. Check them out while you virtually walk through the home with this Matterport tour. It’s almost as fun as seeing the real thing.

In addition to four bedrooms, the home has an in-home gymnasium on the second floor and a media room on the third floor.

The address feeds into Armstrong Elementary and is well located in the heart of Park Cities.
