Quality craftsmanship meets today’s lifestyle in this elegant Georgian Revival home in Perry Heights.
Nestled behind mature trees, with a grand drive up appeal, this well-preserved home holds a coveted spot in one of the last remaining single-family neighborhoods nearest Downtown Dallas. It was constructed during pre-Depression era, a grand age of Dallas residential real estate.
On arrival, the manicured lawn leads to a statement-making front porch. Stepping through the front door, visitors immediately gush at the enormous grand foyer and classic Georgian-style central staircase leading upstairs from the entry hall. It sets the perfect tone for festive gatherings and formal occasions.
The living room is expansive, with room to create multiple conversation zones. On cool days, build a fire in the wood-burning fireplace and settle in. Plantation shutters expertly balance the room’s ample light, the view of the neighborhood and your privacy.
Positioned off the living room is a tranquil sunroom with gorgeous arched windows. This is where you’ll want to spend slow mornings with a cup of coffee and the newspaper or a good book. Open the French doors to breathe a bit of fresh air, listen to the backyard water feature and look out onto the pool.
Also on the first floor are the kitchen, breakfast nook, powder bath and formal dining room. All flow together seamlessly, but if you prefer, the view of the kitchen can be concealed from dinner guests with an oh-so-classic swinging door. The kitchen boasts ample storage behind Shaker-style cabinetry, granite countertops, double ovens, a smart refrigerator and heated floors. The food-prep area has easy access to the backyard, so quick trips to pick fresh herbs or to deliver more snacks for backyard revelers is a breeze.
Climb to the top of the stairs, and the large landing centered beneath a skylight takes your breath away. Hardwood floors continue upstairs and through the bedrooms, which include two guest rooms that share a full bath. Additional guests will feel at home in the backyard guesthouse, which includes a kitchenette and full bath along with separate storage space that could be converted back to a two-car garage.
Meanwhile, the master bedroom is tucked away upstairs in a private corner all its own. The en-suite master bath is a tranquil and functional space with double sinks, a spacious shower, tub, heated floors and granite counters. Around the corner, you’ll find a bonus office or hobby room as light-filled as it is convenient thanks to wall-to-wall windows and skylights. Task lighting has never been this good. And should you need a dose of inspiration while you work, simply glance out at the trees and flowering plants that fill the backyard.
On leisure days, wander into the backyard and take a dip in the swimming pool, or find a spot under the pergola and be lulled into a deeply relaxed state by the soothing sound of the water feature. Planned amenities like artificial turf, mosquito system, and a remote-controlled pool cover make this outdoor space all play and no work.
When work beckons, your commute is easy wherever you need to go because this home is mere minutes from downtown, the hospital district, Dallas Love Field, the Dallas North Tollway, I-75 and I-35. Life doesn’t get grander than that.
