Magnificent Setting Compliments Spectacular Estate
Two legendary Texan architects have created a breathtaking estate hidden away from today’s madding crowd. Nestled along a secluded creek in the Devonshire estate area, the main house designed by John Astin Perkins is the centerpiece of the property that boasts more than an acre of towering trees, manicured shrubbery and sweeping grounds.
Reached by a private driveway leading through the lush beauty of the property, the contemporary home’s first impression with its metal roof only hints at what lies beyond the glass-and-wood front door: simply wondrous details highlighted by skylights, beamed ceilings, areas for showcasing artwork, hardwood and tile floors, built-in shelves, two fireplaces and walls of glass doors and windows.
The open floorplan makes entertaining a breeze. The formal living room, dining room and family room are all easily accessible to the wet bar with its refrigerator and icemaker. The culinary center would impress the most demanding gourmet chef with a walk-in pantry, a breakfast nook with a double tier of shelves for cookbooks, a house manager’s office and even a tree-shaded terrace off the kitchen.
In a separate wing is a one-of-a-kind study with grasscloth walls, plantation shutters and a full bath, as well as a hallway lined with bookshelves and closets leading to the luxurious master bedroom suite. The bedroom has a flawless view of the backyard and the fountain-fed waterway feature. The adjacent dressing areas and bathroom include everything from open walk-in closets with built-in cabinetry to a marble wall vanity with double sinks and a makeup table.
A stairway leads to the upper level’s three oversized ensuite bedrooms with walk-in closets, as well as a work study alcove and a game room with an open balcony.
Just off the home’s covered terrace is a panoramic view of the grounds with their swimming pool and cabana with full bath designed by Frank Welch, as well as steps leading down to Straight Branch Creek.
Adjacent to the main house is a three-car carport, an ensuite guesthouse with a kitchenette and a dog run.
