This is Greenway Parks at its finest! Designed in 1925 by Fooshee & Cheek - the architects known for Highland Park Village - this remarkable 4-bedroom, 4.1-bathroom Spanish Colonial Revival affords exquisite design, architectural integrity, and approximately 5,000-square-feet of solid construction to create one extraordinary family estate.
The one-of-a-kind Greenway Parks home is located in a significant setting, overlooking one of two beautiful interior parks, marked by mature trees and manicured green space. The neighborhood's timeless design, created by famed architect Dave Williams in the late 1920's, provides an unending passion for many of its historic homes and sense of community.
5422 Montrose is perhaps Greenway Parks’ home, admired for its distinctive façade with arched doorway, period hardware, front balconies and exterior staircase. Extensively restored and expanded by the current owners in 2007, with additional updates in 2012 and 2017, great care was taken to preserve its details, such as the original telephone nook with phone intact.
Moorish doorway openings, textured plaster walls, vaulted and beamed ceilings, light white oak floors, designer papers and window treatments all create a warm and inviting atmosphere that tells a story of elegant entertaining. The gracious living room holds the keys to masterful architectural drama with a stunning cast stone fireplace mantel, and custom bookshelves surrounding Portella steel doors opening to a private study. Originally a side porch, the light-filled study is flanked by arched windows at each end, colorful stained glass, and a built-in desk area ideal for study or work.
For the consummate host, the gourmet kitchen with Danby marble and French limestone counters, copper farm sink and vent hood over a commercial grade Viking range, plus stainless Liebherr refrigeration could not be more striking. A wonderfully square dining room just off the kitchen is a cozy space for intimate dinner parties, while the nearby den looks out to a sparkling resort pool and loggia - ideal for hosting a crowd indoors and out.
Upstairs you’ll find a secondary living area, gracious master suite, and three oversized guest rooms, each with its own ensuite bath. The spacious master boasts a soaring vaulted ceiling, charming sitting area, and spa-like bath with marble counters, freestanding copper bathtub, seafoam green tile shower, and double walk-in closets.
Outside you’ll enjoy a landscaped play yard, sparkling Spanish-style resort pool, and an inviting loggia connecting the home to a cabana, which could serve as a bright living area or guest house with a full bath and kitchen, perfect for casual entertaining.
Lovingly maintained and appointed, this Greenway Parks beauty is a home to love! Create your legacy in the heart of a beloved Dallas neighborhood close to everything with a secluded park-like feel.
