This 6,115-square-foot Mediterranean at 3420 Saint Johns Drive in Highland Park looks so classically southern California, you’d swear it was a 1930s Spanish villa in L.A.. This five-bedroom, five-bath, and two-half-bath beauty near SMU is listed for $2.9 million by Rogers Healy and Associates.

A winding wrought-iron staircase impresses as soon as you walk through the alcove entry and into this amazing 2003-built stucco home with butter soft paint finishes on the arched walls and doorways. To the left, a formal dining room with custom arched windows opens by leaded glass doors to the kitchen.


We will be talking Fairmont Privates Residences at Ghirardelli Square exclusive fractional vacation ownership TONIGHT at this gorgeous listing — with Virginia Cook agents Jolene Crawford and Diane Duvall Rogers’– over at 4724 Saint Johns Drive. Might I add, the honeypot of Saint John’s Drive. Offered at $4,700,000, this almost 9,000 square foot babe has three stories, six bedrooms, six full and a bunch of half baths, study and full basement with game room, media room and wine cellar. The backyard has a huge pool with built-in seating and a mighty romantic little spa. I can totally tell this is a bachelor’s home — he gets her in that spa, she won’t get out. Check out the black and white rooms — who needs shades of grey? Designs by Kathy Allardyce of Allardyce Interiors. The lot is enormous for Highland park, at 80 by 190 WOOHOO but if that isn’t big enough for you, the lot next door is available for an additional price.

You own a home like this, you never want to leave. But when leave you must, you have an upscale fractional residence in San Francisco, Santa Fe, Whistler, Telluride, Acapulco, the Florida Gulf Coast or Europe. Everything is done for you, all you do is enjoy… just like being at home.
