Overlooking the Dallas Country Club and golf course and surrounded by magnificent trees, this landmark home on Beverly Drive is one of Dallas’ uniquely beautiful properties. The brilliant collaboration between architect and designer created this stunning family home on an oversized lot in a commanding location. Built for comfortable yet sophisticated living, the home has large formal entertaining spaces with high coved ceilings, including a lovely music room overlooking both front and rear grounds, and a masterful octagonal library paneled in Cuban Mahogany with Brazilian Rosewood inlaid floors. Large galleries with walls of windows bring in the luxurious outdoors and natural light. Expansive walls for art and collectibles are perfectly lit by an extensive lighting system. The home focuses on the views to the gorgeous gardens, fish ponds, and the lap pool which is anchored by the cabana and guest house. Stone patios and terraces are accessed from the numerous French doors. The large two-story entry foyer with clerestory windows opens to both the formal living and dining rooms and leads through the spine of the home to the wonderful cook’s kitchen, family room, and garden/breakfast room. The kitchen is also accessed through a spacious butler’s pantry. The large basement is finished out in the same manner as the rest of the home and houses a wine room, kitchenette, expansive art storage, and a terrific entertaining area. Wide plank quarter sawn oak floors are found throughout the home. The smooth finish plaster walls accentuate the gentle curves of the coved ceilings and the multiple arched passageways. Beautiful custom iron work is found on all gates, stairways and balconies. The classic stucco exterior, slate roof, stunning windows and gracious circular drive highlight the imposing façade. The home is sited amidst towering specimen trees and lovely plantings. The exquisite landscape design is set off by the numerous ponds, gardens and outdoor Pennsylvania Bluestone patios and covered verandas. Rarely can one gaze over the verdant green spaces of the Dallas Country Club and golf course from their front steps. The open rolling terrain evokes the feeling of the English countryside, and creates the peaceful ambience of days gone by. This magnificent home has the warmth and welcome of a great family manor as well as the sophisticated design, luxurious spaces, and modern amenities for today’s living.
