Walk Into the Pages of Architectural Digest in this University Park Luxury Home | CandysDirt.com

For high-end buyers, a house isn’t just about square footage and the zip code. They are buying a lifestyle with desirable amenities, fabulous location, incredible design, and a certain je ne sais quoi.

It is simply stunning, from the white-on-white palette that contrast beautifully with the rich hardwoods, to the big windows that stream in natural light.

This home has five bedrooms, four full bathrooms, one half bath, three living areas, two dining areas, and 4,365 square feet on two stories, built in 2015. There’s an open house this Sunday, Nov. 19, from 2-4 p.m. Would you like a sneak peek?
