The English countryside is within reach at 5427 Greenbrier Drive. An ideal mix of old and new, this custom stone home was built in 2007 by Charles Haggard and designed by architect Paul Turney. Situated on a beautiful 60 ft. x 200 ft. lot with gardens and a stone wall for privacy, the home is located in sought after Devonshire, a neighborhood known for its tree-lined streets and small town feel, just minutes from downtown Dallas and adjacent to Highland Park.
Enter through the stunning foyer, featuring Ann Sacks black limestone flooring. On your right, a living room with the potential to be a handsome study offers a wood-burning fireplace and a Lueders limestone mantle. Black walnut hardwoods flow through the main living spaces, adding warmth to complement the stone elements. A spacious den features a vaulted ceiling and cozy fireplace. French doors lead to a covered stone patio with Rumford style wood-burning fireplace, outdoor entertaining area, pool and landscaped green space.
In the kitchen, black walnut cabinets and honed Olympian White Danby marble countertops pamper the chef. A center island creates additional space, while a farm sink adds charm. Stainless steel appliances, including a Wolf range, are sure to make entertaining a pleasure. A nearby eat-in area offers the perfect spot for a quick bite or family dinner. French doors lead to the dining room for more formal occasions.
The downstairs master is a truly private retreat. A spacious bedroom is highlighted by the breathtaking Calacatta Gold marble bath with Ann Sacks tile, separate tub and shower, as well as walk-in closets and his and hers sinks.
Walnut stairs with custom railings lead to the second floor where three bedrooms offer space for guests or family. An adjacent living area or game room provides the bedrooms with a common space. A bonus room also creates the opportunity for a studio space or additional storage. Listed for $1,289,000.
