Elegant 21 Acre Estate Just Minutes from Downtown Dallas
Property Description Nestled on 21+ acres in the middle of upscale Sunnyvale, Texas, this property is literally a one-home subdivision. It features a luxurious 12,000+ square foot home designed for both luxury and practicality! A truly custom design, this home presents an old-world charm with massive travertine columns supporting wonderful open terraces and covered patios for large outdoor entertaining areas. The interior defines quality and understated elegance and was a collaborative effort of Dallas architect Dan Roper and the current owners. In the design and planning stages for about two years prior to breaking ground, and over two years in construction, it incorporates the finest quality construction materials available. There is so much attention to detail throughout, it is very difficult in this format to give you all the details. Trying not to write a book on it, I'll be giving you some interesting details about each area of the home in the same order as the pictures in this ad are presented. Front View of Home: From the street the home is large, but as you get closer, the size becomes more apparent. This may be the tallest home in Sunnyvale, rising 50 feet in the air. The two story brick fa├žade is flanked with carved travertine window and door surrounds and the corners of the building are accented with travertine quoins, giving the home an old world feel. The attic story features full dormer windows adding natural light to that floor space and balance to the architectural design. Porte Cochere: This drive court is big enough to park several cars or can be used as a place to greet guests protected from the rain or weather. It features 8 large columns of imported travertine topped with a balustrade of hand turned and hand carved imported travertine. The whole approach to this home gives the unmistakable feeling of quality and grandeur. Entry Hall: A set of custom-made, 8' tall, arched and hand-forged "iron works" doors lead you into the home. To the right is the floating (self-supporting) grand stair with hand finished solid oak treads and oversized oak hand rails incorporating beautiful wrought-iron decorative balusters between the railings and the stairs. The stairs have built-in lighting as a safety feature and decorative element. The entry hall features the same arched pattern as the roof lines at the Porte Cochere,with five beautiful arches visible from the front door. At the floor and ceiling is intricate millwork and imported English egg and dart with acanthis molding that gives this room a unique welcome to the home. The walls are a hand-applied Venetian plaster that gives a rich depth and an elegant touch of quality. Formal Living Area: Behind two 8' tall, sliding, divided-light, French pocket doors with solid brass, decorative door hardware is the formal living room. The coffered ceiling is divided in to nine deep compartments and features 12" of imported crown molding with an egg and dart bottom molding and the acanthus top pattern. Your eye is immediately drawn to the six large 8' tall, full height doors overlooking the rear patio and pool area with fixed transom windows above each pair of doors for added interest and light. The walls are finished with Venetian plaster and this room features integrated "art" lighting with special UV coating lenses to protect art from over exposure from ordinary light fixtures. This space has it's own peaceful feeling and is large enough to accommodate a grand piano and multiple works of art. Spectacular and inviting by any measure. Office/Library:This may be one of the most beautiful rooms in the home. The office features oak molding and paneling throughout, with wall to wall built-in book cases, file drawers and storage drawers. This room rises 20 feet above your head to open in to the library on the 2nd floor. A brass chandelier hangs from the second story ceiling and illuminates beautiful, imported, custom crown molding. In the corner of the office is a custom-built, oak, spiral staircase with wrought iron ornamentation that leads to the second floor library, whose book cases hold room for 1000 volumes! The chandelier is also equipped with a motorized lift so it can be raised and lowered for service or cleaning if required. After viewing this room you can see why it took ten finish carpenters 36 weeks to complete their work! The office also has a large tornado room/safe room designed to standards developed at a major university to withstand a tornado. The floor is poured concrete with rebar going from the floor slab into the concrete block walls. The entire block wall cavity is filled with rebar and poured concrete which also connects directly to the poured concrete ceiling. There are phone and internet connections in this room as well. The large door to the shelter is also a special purpose door designed for blast resistance and wind loading and features 5 latches to insure a secure closure. The room is also equipped with heat and air conditioning. Family Room -Family Dining - Kitchen: The family room is spacious and features a gas equipped fireplace with a hand-carved imported, custom designed, travertine mantel with a large fire box. Built-in cabinets with retractable doors supply ample room for a top of the line entertainment center. This room is wired for Dolby surround sound and the speakers are recessed in to the ceiling. Eight windows and a full-glazed door provide wonderful views and access to the back pool area and covered patio. The family dining area is spacious and tucked next to the back stairs it has a cozy feel, yet it has ample room to seat 12. Behind the family eating area is a magnificent, lighted breakfront of built-in cabinets with matching crown molding and rope molding which theme carries over from the cabinets in the kitchen. Accent lighting, including over and under counter lighting as well as lighting within the cabinet itself illuminates glass ware and other collectables. This fully equipped gourmet kitchen opens up to the family room and offers a Viking gas cook top with a wall-mounted pot filler, a side by side high capacity, Sub Zero, built-in refrigerator and freezer. There is also a built-in microwave and Dacor double oven with both standard and convection cooking capacity.

The cabinets are custom designed, solid ash cabinets with full extension drawers and solid brass door pull hardware. There are many custom features including extra large drawers for pots, places for trays, pull-out drawers for appliances and built-in spice racks. The kitchen also features a deep walk-in pantry, however, just around the corner in the laundry/mud room, there is an amazing room with floor to ceiling shelves for extra food/pantry storage! Music Room:Located on the second floor this delightful room mirrors the formal living room on the first floor with it's nine-compartment coffered ceiling and Venetian plaster walls. Art lighting provides an optimal setting for displaying paintings or other works of art. At the far end of the music room are two sets of 8 foot French doors leading to the rear patio. This room is large enough for a grand piano and other instruments or can be used as another room for gatherings. Media Room:This media room is one of the most spectacular rooms in the house. This three-tiered room features 16 reclining, leather theater chairs with built-in cup holders. There are three overhead trays of lights providing mood lighting. The theater is wired for Dolby sound and the screen is an amazing 160 inches! At the rear of the theater is a food preparation area including a sink, dishwasher, refrigerator and microwave with solid oak cabinets and marble countertops. The over and under counter lights provide dramatic lighting effects that will not be a distraction while the movie is running. Between the food preparation area and the theater is an additional marble bar which can comfortably seat six. The theater also has a raised performance stage in the front of the room for impromptu family performances or more organized presentations. Game Room: Adjacent to the Media room is an enormous game room! A built-in marble serving area with a sink, 2-drawer refrigerator, icemaker, and microwave insure that refreshments for this game room are readily available. A gas fireplace in the corner provides a cozy atmosphere and there is more than ample room for a pool table, other floor games and many seating and conversation areas. This room opens out onto the upstairs back terrace and an amazing view of the estate! Master Suite: This large room features a cozy reading area beneath a series of bowed windows with beautiful views to the outside. The ceiling treatment in this room is coffered with four deep compartments and beautiful crown molding. The wall finish is again, Venetian plaster. There is a door offering access to the back patio and pool area if you decide to sneak out for a midnight swim! Master Bath: The master bath includes a large, glass-enclosed, marble walk-in shower with multiple shower heads and body sprays. The room is wired for TV so you can watch your favorite programs while you soak in the jetted tub or prepare for the work-day.

The floor is travertine with brown emperador marble inserts at the corners. The molding carries over from the master suite and is imported from Europe. The master closet is very large and features a stained floor to ceiling custom millwork designed for clothes storage and built-in racks for shoe storage. Pool Area: This special pool is 60' long and includes two water sprays, four built-in fountain features and a large cast bronze fountain with a cherub and lions shooting water out of their mouths! The diving end is 9 ft. deep and has an 8 ft. diving board. There is plenty of room for younger children to play in the shallow water entry area. Pool lights that change colors at night provide another level of interest for night-time swimming. The pool deck is wide and is finished with patterned concrete which allows lots of room for alfresco dining! Beautifully landscaped and totally enclosed by a wrought iron fence and gate for security. Aerial View: This aerial view gives a better idea of the acreage associated with the property. It is literally a one residence subdivision. No HOA dues for these owners! The land is lush with an open meadow, a large pond, a small creek and many trees. The home is situated in a beautiful park-like setting.
