Step into one of the most iconic homes in the heart of Lakewood. This 1933 home, with over 5,000 square feet, was designed by Anton Korn and sits on .578 acres on the most premier street in East Dallas.
The Ludowici tiled roof is like no other in all of Dallas, three different shades of blue for a more in depth color. The home itself is like a piece of art, with each room’s details not to be miss. Some of the exterior features include copper gutters and flashing, balconies overlooking the pristine landscape and gardens and original hand painted pattern on the soffits under the eaves. A canopied first floor terrace extends to the interior informal living rooms and French doors open to the front patio.
Inside details include intricate molding, hand carved trim and European Forbes & Lomax switch plates throughout the home. Palladian windows line the front and the dining room is finished out with lacquored Venetian plaster walls with hand-carved double doors. The formal living boasts a carved marble mantel and fireplace that is absolutely exquisite. Original hardwood floors have been refinished in the living room and new matching floors have been installed in the informal living rooms with matching wood floor vents.
The kitchen gives the home a European feel with Bulthaup’s custom cabinetry, opening to the breakfast room. High end appliances include a Miele induction cooktop, a Miele warming drawer and Miele dishwasher, a Gaggenau double ovens with convection, a Liebherr refrigerator/freezer and a Hoshizaki ice maker and a SubZero wine chiller and upright freezer.
The Master bathroom includes Ann Sacks tile, a free-standing Waterworks tub and remote controls for the window coverings. French doors open to the terrace from the master suite, and feature a large walk-in closet with custom cabinetry and a built-in fridge and coffee bar. All three of the upstairs bathrooms have heated floors.
The expanded basement serves as a bonus room and includes a half bathroom, extra-large laundry room and a large storage and mechanical room. The guest apartment sits above the three car garage and there is a large parking pad that could also be used as a sport court.
Plumbing, electrical and mechanical systems have been replaced and updated, including air filters and a house water filtration system throughout the home. There is a Cinquartz HEPA air cleaner along with all new HVAC and ducts. The outdoor units stand behind the guest house and the interior units to the mechanical room are below ground to prevent any intrusive noise. There is a Solarhot tankless hot water heater, an Environmental Water Systems water filtration and a Honeywell thermal expansion tank. Solar tubes are located on the second floor terrace of the childrens’ bedrooms. New gas lines and larger sewer lines were installed in the alley. The enhanced security system includes cameras throughout the home. This home is truly one of a kind!
