An icon. A landmark. The fantastic, romantic 3604 Overbrook Drive in Dallas’ charming Northern Hills neighborhood is a 1925 stunner by civic leader, architect and artist Guy Cahoon for his own family. Capturing the style of both English and Norman architecture, adapted to our Dallas environment, it is crafted of red fieldstone, brick and overlapping board. From the inviting creekside entrance to the restful shade gardens in the rear, the romantic ravine landscape is unlike any other. The home offers a verandah, walls of windows, a library with fireplace, treetop bedrooms and a master suite with sitting area, dual baths and closets, a tucked-away workspace and a private office. With captivating surroundings — stone path, stone bridge, gardens, pool — and architectural intrigue, this is the chance of a lifetime, represented by LeeLee Gioia and Anne Goyer.
3604 Overbrook Drive graces the corner of Overbrook Drive and Abbott Avenue in the delightful and much-sought-after neighborhood of Northern Hills. This tiny neighborhood of less than 10 blocks is now a conservation district, with a collection of some of the most inviting and interesting homes in Dallas, in the Tudor, Colonial Revival, Spanish Eclectic and Prairie styles, all mixed with sleek Contemporaries.
A steep ravine winds through the southern edge of Northern Hills and defines the front of the property at 3604 Overbrook Drive. The home and its surroundings are captivating. The front walkway gate opens to the stone path, which leads across a little bridge and up the steps to the welcoming verandah. A charming leaded-glass front door opens to the wide entrance hall with its graceful staircase and sunny landing. The spacious living room centers around a simple, elegant fireplace. The dining room is lined with windows overlooking the creek and wooded terrain. A cozy library with a fireplace, a sunny gallery and a sitting room open to the shaded rear grounds through large Hope's windows and doors. Light and views abound.
Noted Dallas architect Dan Shipley created a masterful addition to the home, completed in 2002. The remodeled kitchen overlooks the gardens and is adjoined by the breakfast room and a wonderful deck. The spacious first-floor master bedroom has a marvelous sitting area with oversized windows and doors looking onto trees and plantings. Also found here are dual baths and closets, along with a dressing area and a tucked-away workspace. An adjacent private office completes the master wing. Upstairs are three treetop bedrooms with enchanting features such as dormer windows and window seats. The views from each of the bedrooms are magical. Two tidy tiled baths and the spacious sunny upstairs landing complete the second floor. 3604 Overbrook Drive in Dallas
