“This home has a ‘soul’ that reflects tremendous creativity,” says the owner of 8604 Labron Avenue. “It has a unique ‘je ne sais quoi’ that will catch your breath and charm your guests.”
And she knows her stuff; she even knows how to pronounce “je ne sais quoi,” because she is from the Château wine country in the center of France.
“The emphasis is on warmth, aesthetics, and a feeling of serenity and surprise that invites you to feel welcome and challenged to bring your own touch,” says the homeowner.
For example, she used vintage bank security boxes as shelf brackets for the built-in office in the family room — after finding a gold chain inside one of the abandoned treasures!
The neighborhood is the best part. Soft hills, large trees, winding roads — not suburban Dallas at all. You could come home for the weekend, instead of booking a Santa Fe getaway.
