3800 Beverly extThis home is so very Easter Monday, and also such a beautiful example of Highland Park neoclassical architectural history that defines Dallas real estate. Built in 1922 by the renown Hal Thompson, it sits on one of the most prestigious corners in the city (Eton and Beverly) with stately columns, slate and metal roof, perfectly manicured gardens, huge towering trees, a front porch (remember those?) and circular driveway that must have inspired a million more. The home is situated on .845 acres in Highland Park! You get 8,938 square feet of space that has been brought into the 21st century artfully and thoughtfully, all the while maintaining and respecting the architectural integrity of the home.

(It even made the cover of Private Air Magazine!) In fact, it’s one of the most expensive homes on the market in the entire country. Mt. Vernon is still available,too, just not in MLS for now. 4009 West Lawther is $19,000,000.  (more…)
