The current owners have spared no expense in their restoration and renovation of this estate, and have utilized their creative sense of style to craft a timeless masterpiece of comfortable beauty throughout the inside and outside of this estate.


In the front, the owners have updated the landscaping to include some aesthetically pleasing and drought-tolerant plants.  Several outside cameras were added and integrated into the security system, which stays with the home.  An intercom system was also installed.   Updated motors on three iron gates (two in front of home and one on side of house across driveway).  Seamless gutters with leaf guards were also installed, and the sprinkler system control valves were repaired to working order.  A custom, handmade copper chimney cap was also installed.

Furthermore, major components including the electrical and plumbing systems and both HVAC systems were updated, so no need to worry about cast-iron plumbing or aluminum wiring in this home!



The interior walls of the home are Level Five walls, which is the highest finish rating given to interior walls by the Gypsuum Association.  The entire electrical system, including all wires and the main panel, has also been updated with copper wiring.

New wood flooring was installed throughout the entry, kitchen and sun room that matches the kitchen planks, which are all full 3/4 inch narrow plank hardwoods. All existing wood floors were sanded and refinished.




The 1920s Spanish chandelier was meticulously restored and is the crown jewel of the formal dining room.  The large double pane picture windows offer a panoramic view of the front yard of the estate.


A wall was removed between the kitchen and family room, and the kitchen was meticulously updated with custom cabinetry and professional appliances, including Viking double oven and warmer drawer, Viking six burner gas range, built in deep-fryer, built in espresso and coffee machine, wet ice maker, and second sink.  The breakfast bar seats three with room to spare, and there’s easily room for three more on the island.





Whole-home sound/media system – including projector and drop-down 120 inch custom screen was added.  Audio/video system stays with the home.




This sunroom was updated and 14 inch solid beams were installed, along with these doors that have double pane windows.  Double pane windows were also installed throughout the entire home (with the exception of the existing double-pane picture windows in dining and formal living which are in great condition).




All interior walls were upgraded to Level 5 walls, which is the highest finish-rating for interior walls.  This is the master bedroom, which opens to the back patio under the veranda right next to the outdoor fireplace.




The onyx slab in the middle of the marble double steam shower is definitely one of the most breathtaking features of this home that the current owners added.


A forth bedroom was added off the sunroom opens to a recently installed flagstone patio in the back with majestic views of the lake through the updated doors with double pane glass.


A full bathroom with marble tile and soaking tub was added to the hallway.


This second bedroom is perfect for a guest room and has wonderful views of the front of the estate out of the restored plantation shutters.


This large jack-and-jill bath with marble shower and double sinks connects the second and third bedrooms in the east wing of the estate.


The newly installed flagstone patio has plenty of room for entertaining a crowd, but is insulated from the big city that you won’t even know you’re in Dallas.


The view of this private, spring-fed lake is perfect for lazy summer evenings on the patio under the veranda.


And on colder nights, you could always build a cozy fire in the stone fireplace.


The owners thought about views, efficiency, and natural lighting.


The detatched garage has been insulated and has steel beams.   A permanent staircase in the rear goes to the attic, which is decked the entire length of the garage.  Room for three, possibly four, vehicles, plus plenty of additional room for tools and equipment.


Several updates were made to the pool components and area, including resurfacing of the pool deck, upgrading the pool pump, new plumbing lines to the pool, and color changing LED lights in pool and spa.  The outdoor pool bath was updated and has a toilet, shower, and sink.

This remarkable estate is truly one-of-a-kind and will not last long in this red-hot real estate market in East Dallas.  If you would like more information about this estate, or if you would like to arrange a viewing of this home, please call me directly at (972) 978-3553.
