We are over the moon with excitement because this gorgeous historic Highland Park neoclassical mansion at 3800 Beverly Drive is back on the market and was just listed by Compass Real Estate’s Jonathan Rosen. It’s one of our favorite homes in Dallas.
When you feature luxurious multi-million-dollar homes each week over the course of several years, once in a while, they come back on the market. Rarely, but it happens, and this is one such instance. This Italian Renaissance Revival has only had three owners, and it’s a perfect home in a perfect location.
Some contemporary house designs can seem a little untouchable — sleek and chic, but looking more like they should function as a museum instead of as a home for actual humans.
Our Monday Morning Millionaire is a Bluffview Austin stone contemporary that shows off exquisite design and practical function to work for real people.
Karen Eubank staged the house at 4421 Bluffview Blvd. so it would be seen as a comfortable place to live, in addition to showing off its gorgeous architecture, compliments of Phillip Jennings Custom Homes.
“When I was staging, a mom came by for a sneak peek with her little boy of about eight,” Eubank said. “When he threw himself on the large sectional and said, ‘All my brothers and sisters could fit here, this would be great!,’ I thought that was the best stamp of approval because that’s exactly what is going to happen — a family is going to gather here and watch TV, enjoy the fire, and hang out.”
There’s plenty of space for a family to stretch their legs with five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, one half bath, two living areas, three dining areas, two offices, and 6,011 square feet on two stories, built in 2014 and sitting on 0.42 acres. The floor plan also lends itself to entertaining and we can imagine some killer parties for human big and little.
What do Bill Gates, Brad Pitt, Elton John, Johnny Depp, and Victoria Beckham have in common? Well, besides celebrity. They all share a love for homes in the French countryside. Even Marie Antoinette escaped the confines of the palace for her rustic retreat, Le Hameau de la Reine, as often as possible. If you can’t flee to France, our Monday Morning Millionaire is the next best thing. It’s a Country French estate built by Durett Homes for a developer. (more…)
When I think of a Highland Park Colonial Revival home, the words that come to mind are traditional, stately, classic, and gracious. The Colonial Revival has been and continues to be the most popular style in America. You’ll see it reimagined and reinvented by some of the best architects and builders in the country because it’s what people want.
It is the very essence of home.
I was thrilled to see this historic home hit the market because it ticks all the boxes for anyone looking for a family home, in a great neighborhood, that appreciates history, and wants to put down deep roots.
I have, and always will maintain, that the two most-coveted streets in the Park Cities are Beverly Drive and Armstrong Parkway. Imagine my delight in finding this Highland Park luxury Mediterranean on the corner of these two sought-after streets! When you imagine a home on Beverly Drive, what comes to mind is luxury, of course, but also gracious living, elegance, taste, style, and sophistication. Absolutely every one of these elements is found in this 8,955-square-foot Highland Park luxury Mediterranean at 4343 Beverly Drive. (more…)
Let’s talk hot property, shall we? This gorgeous Highland Park English Tudor revival at 4814 Saint Johns Drive hit the market for $4.9 million last Friday. Our Monday Morning Millionaire is everything you could ever want in a home, and you simply cannot ask for a better location!
The English Tudor revival style evokes a sense of gracious living, and tradition. When you can find an original like this one that’s been seamlessly renovated and expanded, well you’ve hit the jackpot because they are rarely available.
I had to pinch myself a few times when this Preston Royal transitional two-story at 6306 Royalton Drive popped up on Realtor.com, because it is all I could ask for in a home. Remember I’m a wee bit picky. This house is what I always tell you to look for when you’re in the market — a home built by a builder, for themselves. You see, builders think they are going to stay put when they build their dream home. They never do. There’s always another cool lot, and another clever design they are ready to tackle. So, if you can nab a builder’s own home, you are the one that will never move! (more…)
