Custom built by James Darnell in 1996, this one owner home was beautifully designed in the Neo-Classical Georgian architectural style, encompassing all of the details of symmetrical design, classical proportions and decorative elements. Hallmarks of Renaissance design are symmetrical placement of windows and doors, a hip roof with dormers, a Balconet and a belt course around the façade -- just a few of the features incorporated into the integrity of the design. Sited on one of the premier corner lots in gated Glen Lakes, the home is elevated to take advantage of views to the pond. Enter the elegant home to a grand two story Foyer with beautiful Dentil moldings and white marble flooring. The entrance is flanked by a large formal living room on the left and to the right, a handsome library with rich wood flooring, paneling and bookshelves. Adjacent to the spacious dining room is a Butler’s Pantry complete with a closet for table ware, a walk in pantry and a wet bar that accommodates the formals. The kitchen and morning room flow to the cozy den. The downstairs, large owner’s retreat has his and hers baths, each with a large walk-in closet as well as a cedar closet for each. Take the elevator or the stairs to the second level to enjoy three ensuite bedrooms and a game room that was used as a study. Both levels have 12’ ceilings. With phenomenal storage throughout, this home is a collectors dream.
Experience the Glen Lakes lifestyle and all of its amenities. Breathtaking grounds, beautifully landscaped common areas, and six well-maintained lakes and ponds set the stage for this serene environment. Enjoy several miles of lighted walking paths, a game of tennis or pickle ball with friends, a round of golf at the monthly outings, and the ever popular dog park where residents and canines gather for social hour. What prevails here is a sense of belonging. Glen Lakes continues to be one of Dallas’ finest gated guarded communities with close proximity to prime shopping, downtown, the Arts District, fine dining, hospitals and more.
