Beautiful Clean-Lined Traditional
This majestic traditional home with its decorative half-timbering and steeply pitched slate roof and side gables is perfectly framed by its beautifully landscaped grounds. In addition to the front circular driveway, there is a backyard oasis with a mosquito-mist system and a fountain-fed saltwater pool. Overlooking the pool is a charming cabana with a spiral staircase, fireplace, full bath and a loft that could easily be mistaken for a home itself.
The pool house only hints at what lies within the main house. Upon approaching the front door entry with side alcoves for seating, itís obvious that this is a true showplace thanks to designer paints, inset and suspended lighting fixtures, hardwood floors, delicate-textured wallpaper, skylights, built-in bookshelves and crown molding. The residence would be equally ideal for a priceless modern art collection or for magnificent 19th century furnishings.
The smartly designed open floorplan provides for a seamless flow connecting the first levelís formal dining and living rooms, study, den and the office.
In one wing of the first level is a marvelous master suite with a wall of shelves, window-paned doors opening to the backyard and a fabulous bathroom with a freestanding soak tub, dual shower, his-and-hers vanities, separate water closets and his-and-hers closets.
In the opposite wing is a kitchen that would delight the most discerning chef. Highlighted by a breakfast bar, an island with a Thermador range, wet bar, tile backsplash, walk-in cupboard with EuroCave wine closet, utility room and prep room adjoining the dining room, the kitchen is fully equipped with Miele, Dacor and Sub-Zero appliances.
Also located on the first level are two powder rooms, three fireplaces, a covered terrace overlooking the pool and a three-car garage.
The second levelís three unique bedrooms feature everything from built-in desks and shelves and windows with plantation shutters to a large hideaway playroom with plenty of storage.
Located in the charming Bluffview neighborhood, the home is conveniently accessible to the Dallas North Tollway.
