Mediterranean Modern Home on .25 acres
3424 Cornell Avenue, Dallas, Texas

Highland Park Home  Sold

This modern interpretation of a Beverly Hills home expresses itself perfectly in Old Highland Park. Built in the last 12 years, the Mediterranean home was totally refurbished, stylistically enhanced and the modernity accentuated.

Highland Park Tranquility

A series of arched openings and courtyard with a fountain make the transition from the peaceful tree-lined block of Cornell to the formal two-story entrance hall.

Modern Elegance in Highland Park

The large mahogany framed sliding glass doors are part of the glazed walls found on both ends of the informal living room. In one direction your full view is of a side garden and play area for the children. In the other direction there is a full view of the terrace, gardens and pool. When entertaining with both of the wide glass doors open, the front garden, the living area, rear garden, pool and terrace all become one space.

Stylish for Entertaining, Perfect for a Family

The formal living room with fireplace has tall ceilings, expansive windows, hardwood floors and walls finished and lighting established for art. The large kitchen and breakfast room with views of the pool is warm, sleek and open to the informal area with tall ceilings and limestone floors. The formal dining room will accommodate elaborate dinner parties or family gatherings. A study serves as a personal retreat.

On the second floor you will find a large playroom with an informal staircase to the kitchen, and four bedrooms including the stylish master bedroom suite with a sitting area and fireplace and glass walls and balcony overlooking the garden.

Excellent Value of Highland Park Real Estate

You and your children will enjoy the proximity of Armstrong Elementary School only two blocks away and Highland Park Middle School within walking distance.
