Luxury Homes in Highland Park
Relax with a buttery croissant and steaming café au lait while dreaming about these stunning French-inspired estates in Highland Park.
Welcome to Paris! The gorgeous home at 4441 S. Versailles could well be found in a luxury arrondissement. The French Regency-style home overlooks one of the most beautiful parks in Dallas, aptly named “Versailles.” Elegant spaces are detailed with custom materials, including Ann Sacks floors in the wide hallway laid with limestone and inset with slate. Upstairs, the master suite includes a sitting room, a large master bedroom with a balcony and spa-like, his-and-her baths. A winsome nursery (or lady’s office) and four additional bedrooms each has a separate bath. The basement level offers a wine-tasting room, a wine cellar, a media room and a full bedroom suite.

From the imported antique materials to the elaborate front garden surrounded by box hedges, no detail was overlooked in the home at 3801 Normandy Avenue. The 10,000-square-foot home was designed with generous family and entertaining spaces. A highlight of this French-style home is the 700-bottle wine room just off the limestone floored entry with its sweeping hand-scraped wood staircase. Beyond is a fabulously designed kitchen and a catering kitchen for entertaining. A morning room with fireplace, a study with wood-paneled walls, an additional office, exercise room and three-car garage round out the amenities.
