Sunnybrook Estates European MansionOur Monday Morning Millionaire is a spectacular Sunnybrook Estates European mansion at 5031 Deloache Avenue. The story of this home is an example of what a small town we really have in Dallas. I always say forget the six degrees of separation theory — we have only three degrees of separation in Dallas. If you know three people, you can access everyone. Especially in luxury real estate!

I can always count on Compass Dallas to make my luxury home search easy by rolling out something exciting every Friday. Christy Berry and Alex Kaliniak just listed this wonderful Sunnybrook Estates European mansion — and that’s where our world gets small. I could not quite put my finger on the feeling I’d seen this level of detail before, but not for a long time. So, I did some digging in our archives and voila!

I’d written about the home of Robert Trown two years ago. Trown, it turns out, is the residential designer responsible for this 15,402-square-foot Sunnybrook Estates European mansion. He’s also the creative genius behind Troy Aikman’s latest residence and countless other homes of notable figures that have sworn us to secrecy.

English Tudor Manor

You have never seen anything quite like this grand English Tudor manor house in Dallas.

It has all of the custom millwork and hand-crafted details that create an aura of stepping back in time to a more genteel way of living. You half expect to see a corgi or two running up to greet you upon arriving in the jaw-dropping entry hall.

Sometimes you see a house and think, “Wow, I could just move right into that one.” That’s the way we feel about this Sunnybrook Estates colonial revival at 5033 Brookview Drive.

Traditional homes create a strong pull. Many of us grew up in them, so they impart an immediate sense of home. But, we don’t want anything very traditional once we step inside. We want clean, sleek lines, museum-quality white walls, classic Carrara marble, and rich hardwoods.

We want this house. (more…)
