Let’s face it: there are only a handful of streets in Dallas that make people drop their jaw when they find out where you live: Strait Lane — I’ve decided to buy my next house on the tip top northernmost stretch of Strait just to get the reaction from people. Park Lane, to some extent. I lived on Park Lane for ten years and many times people asked me for an apartment number, as if! There is Lakeside Drive, Highland (hi Troy), Euclid, and there is the Grand Dame of Highland Park Streets: Beverly Drive. Who is Beverly Drive named after, anyhow? This elegant 1930′s Georgian at 4641 Beverly brings you the best of old world Manor elegance with fabulous new interiors and knocked-out design by interior designer extraordinaire James McEnroe. Past owners include Shannon Murchison and Mark Serrao. The home is on a perfect lot — almost one quarter acre – 3534 square feet with three bedrooms, two and a half baths, elevator (yes, an elevator!) , screened in porch plus an outstanding pool in the back with fountains. It was built in 1940 and to say they do not build them like this anymore is an understatement. Plus, look at those bathrooms: the wals are lined with marble from base to ceiling! There are separate guest quarters and a two-car garage. You really get everything in here – large spaces, classic modern style infused with natural light and clean lines as only Mr. M can deliver.
And now, you get a deal. Or shall I say steal. 4641 has been reduced to $1,149,000 down from $1,225,000 from whence I last posted it. That was in September. This is a great house and with the reduction, you are getting a great deal on your Valentines gift. Enough, maybe, to even buy some flowers!
