4241 Lorraine Avenue, Highland Park, TX 75205
In the heart of Highland Park is a true treasure brimming with the beauty and allure of Provincial France. Surrounded by towering trees, and exquisite landscaping this magnificent two-story home with its slate roof and its timeless architecture only hints of the breathtaking beauty that lies within. Thanks to a stunning design and the blending of carefully curated materials (six antique stone fireplaces, Parisian chandeliers and reclaimed hardwood floors and white oak beams) with 21st century conveniences (an elevator, LED accent lighting, two powder rooms, a three-car garage and world-renowned appliances), this masterpiece is spectacular.
Each room is a gem gleaming with hand-crafted woodwork, stone and reclaimed hardwood floors and diamond finish veneer plaster walls. The formal living room just off the foyer opens to a private garden with a charming fountain. The grand family room’s walls of built-in book shelves features an elevated sitting area. The formal dining room is serviced seamlessly thanks to the adjoining butler’s pantry. The open country-style culinary center is the ideal spot for informal dining, with a perfect view of the courtyard with its fountain-fed pool, thanks to a wall of French doors.
The upper level offers an assortment of living quarters, each having treetop views through French doors. Overlooking the courtyard is the incredible master suite, which is a getaway in itself complemented by a reading room with a wet bar and separate luxury bathrooms and dazzling dressing rooms including a cedar closet. The suite even has its own private balcony.
Just down the hallway, past two oversized ensuite guest rooms, is the back stairway and elevator, which leads to a simply remarkable guest quarters that could easily be mistaken for a master bedroom. The highlight of the suite is the elevated sitting area with still more built-in shelves and an adjacent kitchenette.
And, what would a French country manor be without a charming garden room that can be found at the base of the back stairway, just off the octagonal office with its panoramic views and access to the tree-shaded courtyard and nearby hidden garden.
