HIGHLAND PARK (CBSDFW.COM) – Art and lush greenery never go out of style in the Estate on Beverly. Nestled in an exclusive area of Highland Park, it sits across from the rolling greens of the Dallas Country Club Golf Course.
The rear gardens spill into the inside through the numerous windows and French doors. The home is surrounded by lush greenery – front and back.
Anne Goyer of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty gave CBS 11 News and exclusive tour of the house.
At $13,795,000, the home has a modern twist to classical architecture. It draws inspiration from classical forms, “it’s a very modern way of looking at classic forms such as barreled walls, arches, coved ceilings,” says Goyer.
The walls of the home are made for art. “White walls and the natural lights is really a wonderful way to showcase them,” says Goyer.
The home has two wings that open out to the rear garden. The formal wing holds the living room, library and the music room. All tastefully decorated.
The Library is made of Cuban Mahogany and Rosewood, all repurposed wood from the State Department in Washington.
The informal wing houses the kitchen, dining room and a breakfast area.
The home has 5 bedrooms, 5 baths and 3 half baths. The 11,000 square foot home comes with a finished basement.
And, outside there’s plenty of room for everyone. The swimming pool and a covered cabana is surrounded by beautiful landscaping and ageless live oaks.
“There are two fish ponds that always have the fountain going and it’s so soothing,” says Goyer.
That’s Living Large.
