University Park Luxury Transitional

Photography by Full Package Media

There is a great deal of new construction going on in Dallas, especially in the luxury home market. Guess who is doing it exactly right? CandysDirt.com Approved Builder Robert Elliott Custom Homes. Their University Park luxury transitional at 4328 McFarlin Boulevard hit the market last week, and it is everything luxury home buyers are looking for today.

Elliott worked with Brent Slocum of B.K. Design Studio to create a home that is not just beautiful, but also makes sense for a growing family. With 7,545 square feet, five bedrooms, five bathrooms, two powder baths, and zoned for Highland Park ISD‘s Bradfield Elementary, it doesn’t get better than this. It’s also on a large corner lot off of Armstrong Parkway, so plenty of room to add playscapes, toss a football, or put in a pool.

What caught my eye about this house, however, is the detail. Elliott and Slocum added in character and that sets this University Park luxury transitional apart.

University Park Contemporary

Have you ever wondered just what it takes to have an HGTV-worthy home? Our Monday Morning Millionaire is a University Park contemporary at 3528 Marquette Street that captivated not only HGTV but also D Magazine. And now it can be yours!

I can say from my 20-plus years as a photography stylist and location scout many moons ago, HGTV  (and indeed any commercial photography client looking for a luxury home) has requirements that are set in stone. The perfect home for a photo shoot must be stylish, of course. It also needs to have light (photographers love natural light), and it has to be easy to move around in to capture different angles as well as to sustain a production crew, make-up artists, and stylists for the duration of the shoot.

This University Park contemporary has all that and more. With 6,833 square feet, six bedrooms, six bathrooms, and two powder baths there is plenty of room to create the perfect shot whether it’s for HGTV or Neiman Marcus.

Long Cove is hosting a Lake Home Sales Event for Henderson Bay, pictured here, this Saturday, March 31st on Cedar Creek Lake.

It all started with a big idea – to create a luxury lake front community close to Dallas with all the comforts of home, but without all the maintenance. A place where you can unplug, unwind, and enjoy time with your family and friends. That place is Long Cove, the brainchild of Dallas’ own Don McNamara, developer and investor behind Cityplace and West Village in Uptown. Inspired by getaways like those of Seaside, Watercolor, and Horseshoe Bay, the folks at Long Cove bring those memorable experiences closer to home, spanning more than 1,000 acres, and boasting six miles of shoreline at the clear, deep end of Cedar Creek Reservoir – and it just keeps getting better with newly developed Henderson Bay.

Get the whole story on this fantastic new development just a stone’s throw from DFW on SecondShelters.com.

There’s an almost-finished, high-end home in University Park that brings a touch of French flair to the neighborhood without being too over the top. A perfect blend of transitional elements makes this home feel like it is part of this luxury enclave while also bringing a heightened sense of sophistication to the area.
 
Robert Elliott Custom Homes — a CandysDirt.com Approved Builder — has brought this nearly-7,000-square-foot project from idea to fruition, and even though they haven’t put the final touches on the remaining details we wanted our readers to be the first to know this stunning home is just about ready to show the world.

If she brings a buyer, Lynda Piepgras will donate 5 percent of her commission from the sale of this gorgeous Robert Elliott custom home to the Highland Park Education Foundation as part of a new charitable campaign.

Realtors are famous for their generosity, and they are constantly looking for new ways to lift up the communities they serve. And though commission donation programs are nothing new, we’re absolutely impressed with Lynda Piepgras’ idea to help meet the needs of school districts by contributing a percentage of sales. In fact, Piepgras is launching a program that will commit 5 percent of her commission to the school district in which the home resides. 

“I really wanted to give back to the great neighborhoods I work in, and this is just a no brainer,” Piepgras said. “It’s easy and supports education, our kids, and our teachers.”

Modern traditional mansion

Beverly Drive is the most desirable street in the Dallas area. You cannot convince me otherwise. Armstrong Parkway runs a very close second, and yes, I do love Swiss Avenue, but in my book, once you set eyes on Beverly Drive, nothing else can compare. I’ve been trying to figure out how to live there since 1979. The deck is not stacked in my favor, but if I could manage it, I’d be the first person in line to buy Robert Elliott’s latest custom build at 3414 Beverly Drive. This new build from a sought-after CandysDirt.com Approved Builder sets a new standard for luxury, and I’m dubbing it a modern traditional mansion. (more…)
