This 7362 square foot estate is located on one of the most coveted blocks in Dallas. There’s Beverly Drive and Park Lane, Strait Lane and St. Johns, Armstrong Parkway, Alice Circle and Lexington. Those are all wonderful streets.
Then there is 4631 Valley Ridge. On Valley Ridge.
This home, like the neighborhood, is dripping with high profile names: Richard Drummond Davis the architect, Barry Buford the builder. Robert and Myrna Schlegel’s four and a half acre family compound is nearby, as is the stunning home of Diane and Michael Gruber.
The standards were beyond exact and detailed: every state of the art feature imaginable was brought into the interior when it was built in 2002. The huge designer kitchen opens to a great room, with Citizen Kane fireplace and vaulted ceilings. But what makes this home truly enviable is the huge green space almost directly across from the home, with a soccer-field sized field. Talk about room to roam: you just don’t find this kind of property location in 2014 unless, honestly, you head into the bowels of the Honey Pot and claw everyone else out of the way.
If the tributes in Hunger Games were to fight for a property, this one would be it.
The green space affords a park-like setting to every home on the street surrounding it: it’s like living across the street from Central Park. That’s why homes seldom come on the market on this street, why they are gone the minute the owner “thinks” they want to sell. With five bedrooms, five and a half baths, formals, game room, guest suite, library and study, a mud room, limestone floors, rich cherry woods, neutral palettes, you are getting a large enough home that is not consuming the .98 acre lot like a space-ravenous lion. There is even an elevator. The home is listed at $4,399,000, with Virginia Nobles and Susan Baldwin.
And when you look for financing, the good folks at Inwood Mortgage are anxious to not just help out… but make sure the odds are ever in your favor.
