Park Cities

Design trends come and go, but the timeless architecture at this newly listed Park Cities home will never go out of style. Approaching the stately manor, it feels like you’ve entered the poshest part of Paris thanks to a cast-stone façade, circular stone walkway, and an enchanting fountain that may allure you to throw a penny in over your back every now and again. Don’t be surprised if the impressive exterior causes rubbernecking along Caruth Boulevard, one of the most desirable streets in Dallas. Oui oui, this custom home has attention-grabbing curb appeal and the interiors are equally captivating.

Step into the bright foyer with grand detailing and let a wave of calm wash over you. A sumptuous neutral color palette puts you at ease and huge windows always show a hint of greenery outside, creating a feeling like you’re in a sacred oasis.

After a long day, sink into plush furnishings in the living room or library with a good book, or head to the home theater if you’re in the mood to unwind with a favorite movie. (more…)

This home is all about the details, which greet you from the moment you walk into the front door of 3612 Caruth Boulevard. This home is just spot-on, right down to the checkerboard-stained hardwoods in the foyer. If this Louisiana French-style home by designed by Paul Turney and built by Rusty Goff doesn’t get your heart racing, then you need to check your pulse!

Marketed by top-notch Allie Beth Allman agent Pam Dyer, this University Park home is listed at $3.25 million and is worth every red cent. There are five bedrooms, six and a half baths, and almost 6,500 square feet. Top that all off with Highland Park ISD schools (Hyer attendance zone) and you have an excellent value.

Despite the wood finishes everywhere you turn, this home is bright and welcoming. That has a lot to do with the tons of huge floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the living and dining rooms with light. I think it makes this stunning University Park home both spacious and cozy.

But I am in L-O-V-E with this kitchen, guys. I wouldn’t mind slaving away on turkey and all the fixins’ this Thursday if I had a gorgeous place like this one to do it in! From the bead-board ceiling, the two-tone cabinets, to the copper island counter, the brick-framed range, and the herringbone brick floors, this home perfectly melds old-world and high-end. It is totally to die for!

There’s a keeping room right next to the kitchen, too, which has a brick fireplace that’s just perfect for everyone to hang out and have a few pre-Thanksgiving apertifs, am I right? (Side note: Have a listing that has a to-die-for dining room? Send it our way by Wednesday for our special Thanksgiving feature!)

The master bedroom, with a super-high vaulted ceiling, is just incredible. It’s the perfect retreat for when you’ve had too much turkey and wine (hello tryptophan!) and perhaps a bit too much Aunt Mavis.

Wash away all the family drama and hard work you put in for that one meal in your amazing master bath. I love that there are two separate vanities on SEPARATE SIDES OF THE ROOM. This should be standard in all luxury baths. Seriously, I do not want to have to face my husband at early hours, and this is the perfect solution.

Now, the backyard, that’s the best place for the after dinner football watching marathon. That is, if you don’t want to watch football! I would love to enjoy my dessert and port and just sit by the pool in one of those comfy chaises, wouldn’t you?
