Picture yourself in this oasis of calm set back on .94 acres in a North Dallas estate lot neighborhood. Just minutes from US Highway 75, I-635/LBJ and the Tollway, you can be downtown in 15 minutes, Love Field in 20 or DFW airport in 25 (traffic permitting), and points north just as easily. Nearby Whole Foods, Eatzi's, Central Market and two Tom Thumb stores, provide grocery and gourmet options depending on the day and the need. With multiple upscale neighborhood restaurants, salons and dessert places around you, future star treatment is practically a given as you begin to frequent them. For those with school-age children, St. Marks, Jesuit, Ursuline, Hockaday, Jesuit and ESD are all within a 15-minute drive. Have an active lifestyle? The nearby Northaven Trail and bike routes to White Rock Lake provide convenient ways to explore your city while checking off daily fitness goals.
Inside, the layout is versatile enough to visualize yourself in a wide range of everyday or social scenarios. Accommodate a party of 200 friends easily in the open common spaces, or enjoy a cozy holiday feast with family overlooking the grounds. Drink wine with girlfriends on the front covered trellis, or enjoy boys' night with cigars on the upstairs balcony. Finger paint with your little ones on the back covered porch or wear out your dog playing fetch in the vast yard. The kitchen banquette is ideal for visiting with friends and family while watching a game on TV. The upstairs playroom/media room offers a place to play while the treetop office inspires working from home. The convenience of workouts in your home gym saves time and membership fees. Breath in the fresh floral and green scents, listen to the pool urns trickle, read a book on the patio under an umbrella. Watch colorful birds frequent the trees, and wake up to their singing every morning. Every sense is heightened here, allowing you to experience a richness of life that you've never known... until now.
Practically speaking, no corners were cut in the design or materials. Superb, high-quality building materials were used to fulfill the rich architectural vision of Mark Barry with Barry Bull Ballas. Should you need additional sleeping spaces, converting multipurpose rooms to five or even six bedrooms within the footprint of the house would not be an issue.
