Developed as a clutch of homes surrounding Southern Methodist University in 1915, the community of University Park is now one of the more prestigious enclaves in Dallas. Despite its close-proximity to the city, the broad tree-lined streets and early 20th-century architecture is distinctly different from the gleaming skyscrapers and office buildings downtown.
Considered an inner suburb of Dallas, University Park is five miles north of the city’s downtown. It is bordered to the west by the Dallas North Tollway; the North Park Center Community to the north; U.S. Highway 75 to the east; and Mockingbird Lane and the community of Highland Park to the south.
Your dream of owning an exquisite custom-built Robert Elliott home in University Park is right before your eyes. Not only is this home architecturally striking and the location ideal, this home boasts over 6000sf of luxury living and classic style.
The magnificent stucco façade, stone accents, large black exterior windows, gorgeous landscaping, and contemporary gas lit entry fixtures immediately invite you into this alluring home.

To the right of the entry is the formal dining room complete with wainscoting, crown moldings, and natural grass cloth wallpaper. Continuing past the entryway is the heart of the home - a light, bright, and luxurious kitchen that opens to a great room and large breakfast room, with access to the covered outdoor living space and backyard.
The kitchen is a chef’s dream with all stainless-steel Viking Professional appliances, a Bosch dishwasher, custom vent-hood, an oversized center-island and sophisticated marble countertops - don’t miss the spacious butler’s pantry Ann Sacks glass tile backsplash with wine fridge.
The great room is a real showstopper that boasts built-ins, a stunning stone fireplace, crown moldings and vaulted 12 ft white beamed ceilings creating a light, bright, California beach house feel. The great room opens to the outdoor living space including ceiling fans, built-in barbeque, and automatic outdoor screen that separates the covered patio from the yard - creating the ultimate relaxing outdoor/indoor environment.
You’ll find that the white square paneled walls in the entryway reach to the second floor that leads you to 3 spacious guest quarters - all with chic en-suites and generous walk-in closets.
