Homes for Sale in Highland Park
Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty agent Ellen Terry has listed the gracious estate at 3830 Windsor Lane. Loaded with southern charm, the 8,000-plus-square-foot home is nestled at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on a heavily treed, one-and-a-half-acre lot on the banks of Turtle Creek.
Built in 1955, by noted architect Wilson McClure, the home represents many of his signature design philosophies: inviting formals, walls of windows that unite indoors and out and generously sized rooms that flow easily into one another.
Just off the large marble foyer lay the formal living and dining rooms, both lined with expansive windows and verdant views. Just beyond are a picturesque, brick-floored garden room and a warm, wood-paneled library.
The fully appointed kitchen adjoins an oversized butler’s pantry that offers expanses of workspace and storage, and it overlooks one of the many outdoor entertaining spaces.
On the second level, the home’s original six bedrooms were renovated to become three large suites. The owner’s retreat boasts the luxurious amenities required for a truly private getaway. Separate his-and-hers baths, dressing areas and closets adjoin an additional living space that can serve as a sitting room or office.
Accessible both from inside the home and from a separate outside entry are the spacious guest quarters, fully outfitted with a living area, en-suite bedroom and kitchen.
The ideal complement to the home’s outstanding design aesthetic is the beautiful lot on which it is sited. Privately tucked away at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, the property backs to Turtle Creek and features several areas which overlook the creek and serve as wonderful spaces for entertaining! The Dallas Country Club fairways also lay just beyond the grounds.
This property will be sold as either a spectacular lot to build your dream home, or you can use the existing home. In addition, .94 acres of this property can be sold separately from the lot with the home.
