This premiere masterpiece has been praised by The New York Times and has won the AIA 25 year award from AIA Dallas for its legendary Philip Johnson architecture and the ASLA Honor Award in 2011 for its Reed Hilderbrand’s landscaping design, making it unlike any other home in Dallas. Originally built in 1963, this magnificent estate on 6.45 acres extends from Strait Lane to Inwood Road and has been brilliantly and exquisitely renovated and restored by Bodron + Fruit and Sebastian Construction Group with lighting by Craig Roberts Associates.
Artwork in the two-story atrium is protected from the morning sun by automatic Lutron shades. A former greenhouse has been dramatically converted into a four-inch-deep water feature with 12 bubblers. Fabulous wall coverings have been installed. Each of the seven bathrooms and four powder rooms has been superbly updated.
Still, the original two-story conclave arches surrounding the residence’s exterior, the curved double staircase in the atrium with its skylight, the original travertine floors, the polished walnut paneling and the breathtaking views of the multi-terraced lawn with its hundreds of trees are even more spectacular, thanks to world-class craftsmen.
Each of the ground level’s rooms is a showcase of the finest materials and construction: the library, with its private garden; the formal living room, with flawless views of the grounds; the study with travertine floors and walls highlighted by a glass wall showcasing an oversized fountain; and the formal dining room, with an original canopy arch system providing fabulous acoustics.
Just off the atrium is the hallway leading to a state-of-the-art kitchen and butler’s pantry with SubZero and Thermador appliances and Bulthaup stainless steel cabinetry and countertops, an informal dining room, a family room and adjacent laundry room, house manager’s office or quarters, guest suite and private stairway leading to the upper level.
In addition to three marvelous bedrooms, each with its own bath, the laundry room with a generous walk-in cedar closet and a study with a sitting room, the residence’s upper level is highlighted by a private hallway with leather floor that leads to the master suite with custom silk carpeting, custom built-in nightstands with full-house controls and more fabulous views of the grounds below. The luxurious separate his-and-hers marble bathrooms feature showers and a soaking tub with Dornbacht fixtures and oversized walk-in closets with built-ins.
Across the estate’s original footbridge over the creek that runs through the property is the 1,521-square-foot cabana. It features two bathrooms, a full kitchen and multiple sliding glass doors that open to a covered terrace and travertine stone deck surrounding the sleek minimalist pool. Just beyond the pool is the tennis court and rear entrance to the property.
The main house’s 2,200-square-foot basement level provides easy access for maintenance of the home’s systems, extensive storage and offers a 1,000-bottle temperature-controlled wine closet.
The residence also has a Lutron system that is fully customizable and programmable to control the lighting and shades, an auto courtyard, covered parking for four cars and a dramatic sunken media room with full bath and kitchen that is just steps away from the main house.
