Devonshire is one of our favorite areas not only because it features some simply stunning architecture, but because the location can’t be beat. Sandwiched by the Dallas North Tollway and Inwood Road, and just north of Lovers Lane, Devonshire residents have easy access to some of our region’s best shopping and dining without sacrificing privacy. That’s thanks in large part to the large lots and liberal setbacks of these homes, as well as the rolling topography.
It’s no wonder that families and retirees are flocking to this sought-after neighborhood, but their reasons couldn’t be more different. Baby Boomers are moving in and looking to downsize and live inside the loop without feeling like your neighbor is breathing down your neck. Families, on the flipside, are looking for close-in living that has excellent schools nearby as well as culture and amenities. In fact, Dave Perry-Miller agent Courtney Jubinsky just moved to Devonshire and just loves it!
This home, however, will suit both tastes. Listed by the impeccable Becky Frey, 5616 Stonegate Road is a beautifully remodeled 1940s traditional with tons of living space. With an ample 4,332 square feet that is excellent for entertaining friends and family, this home is spacious without being overly large, and thanks to the .392 acre lot, it feels very private. It’s on the market for $1.225 million.
The curb appeal of this gorgeous home is undeniable, thanks to the picture windows and metal roof. Stride up the long gravel and concrete walk to this beautiful home and you’ll be taken in by the modern portico-type landing with tons of clean lines, the native and adaptive landscaping full of texture, and the cool metal roof.
Inside, you’ll notice that the interiors are immaculate and warm, thanks to the beautiful wood and travertine floors. With two living areas and a formal dining room offset by an array of columns, this home feels elegant without being gaudy. You’ll love the flow of this home, which uses huge windows and French doors to bring the outdoors in. You can soak up the view of the beautiful custom pool and backyard through the floor-to-ceiling glass in the living area and kitchen, and admire the beautiful stone fireplace in the livingroom.
The kitchen is a work of art, and the beautiful warm cabinetry is topped off with beautiful granite counters. Commercial-grade built-in appliances give this commissary a clean and sleek look, and with the eat-in counter and breakfast nook that looks out to the backyard, you’ll probably spend most of your day here.
With four bedrooms and three and a half baths, this home has plenty of room for family and guests, and would be an excellent abode to host holiday celebrations and spring gatherings. And with a fireplace in the master bedroom and an enviable sunroom, this home is cozy, peaceful, and completely luxurious.
In the master suite you’ll find a beautiful five-piece bath set with stunning stone and contemporary cabinetry. I love the contrast of the dark granite counter with the rosy beige travertine tile that clads the floors and walls, as well as the tub surround. Both spa and shower are large enough for two.
If you aren’t already sold on this incredible home, the backyard will seal the deal. Lush landscaping, an enormous patio, and a refreshing pool make this home the total package. With as hot as our luxury market is, I don’t think this home will be in MLS long!
