The tagline for luxury builder Ellen Grasso and Sons Homes is “A house that feels like home,” and it’s so true for this beautifully classic Highland Park home at 4536 Belclaire Ave.
Located in the coveted, tree-lined French Streets of Highland Park, this four-bedroom, four-and-half-bath, 5,280-square-foot home was built in 2017 with exquisite attention to detail.
Inside, the cool blue hues you’ll find splashed throughout the home are proof these homeowners had an eye for detail. Plus, the light fixtures — from the oversized outside lanterns to the dining room modern chandelier, and the office drum pendant — are on point.
The formal dining room is light and bright with transomed French doors that open to the front and a custom fireplace, while the office, too, is brilliant with floor to ceiling windows and a wall of built-in shelves.
Heading to the kitchen, this Chef’s setup has Wolf appliances and Asko dishwasher, while the large pantry features a warming drawer, second dishwasher, built-in coffee maker and temperature-controlled custom wine storage. Plus, a Shaw farm sink, blue tile backsplash, and marble countertops and island complete the look.
Pull up a stool to the kitchen island or get comfortable in the banquette seating for casual dining. Both open up to the living room with transom windows that offer views of the backyard pool and a fireplace.
The first floor also features a mudroom that’s smart and functional with a pocket office and bench seating storage.
On the second floor, the primary suite has a great sitting room that’s as large as a sunroom with shiplap walls and lots of light.
The primary bedroom features vaulted ceilings and a balcony overlooking the pool and backyard. The bath features an oversized Waterworks steam shower, a Victoria and Albert bathtub, marble countertops, and dual walk-in closets.
Up on the third floor, there’s a huge media room with wet bar and mini fridge. The backyard paradise features a custom pool with sunbathing ledge, sleek spa, water features, and fire bowls, as well as an outdoor living space with ceiling fans, shake shingle walls, and a custom fireplace. The detached two-car garage has an additional 700 square feet of living space.
This Belclaire Avenue home is zoned for Bradfield Elementary in top-rated HPISD.
