Description

This historic Charles Dilbeck home is one of the most enchanting properties to become available in the Park Cities in some time. Sited on an oversized lot on a beautiful stretch of Douglas near Larchmont, it is just a short walk to Highland Park Village. The expansive front façade with charming wood gates leading to covered walkways makes one feel as though they are on vacation! A large front motor court leads to curved stone walkways and lush landscaping that invite one in to a most unique and special property. Expanded to include multiple living spaces for today’s lifestyle, the home retains the character intended by the original architect. Light pickled woodwork and doors with wonderful antique hardware, beautiful light wood flooring, and beamed ceilings create an easy living feel. Large rooms, an abundance of tall windows and French doors, and an open flow create a spacious feel throughout. The front foyer leads to a large living room with oversized woodburning fireplace and many floor to ceiling windows. The adjacent dining room is quite large and can accommodate a table to seat 12 or more, or an additional table in the large windowed nook. There is a wonderful gallery area that connects the kitchen and morning room with the family room and each area has multiple sets of French doors leading to outside walkways, courtyards, and sitting areas. The heart of the kitchen is a large island with butcher countertop and surrounding tiled surfaces and stainless appliances. The kitchen incorporates a breakfast and morning room with an architectural fireplace and cozy sitting area, all opening to the covered patios and rear grounds. The family room has a marble fireplace, great light with walls of windows and doors, and an adjacent bar that is tucked away in just the right place for entertaining. There is also another sitting room or study off the front entry accessed from a typical Dilbeck vestibule. Upstairs, there are 3 bedrooms, each with a private bath. The master suite has a sitting area, French doors to a charming balcony and his and her baths and closets. The rear grounds incorporate covered and uncovered porches, columns creating walkways, a builtin grill in keeping with the sensibility of the home, and beautiful landscaping. The outdoor area is a peaceful retreat and an extension of the home itself. Adjacent to the home and attached by a breezeway, there is a wonderful casita that includes a living area with fireplace, eating area, kitchenette, bedroom and additional nook for a study or small bedroom. As well, there is a large room and bath above the 2 car parking area that can serve as quarters or another living area. Located in the wonderful Loma Linda area between Windsor and McFarlin, this iconic home is one of a kind!
