The exceptional Mediterranean home at 3420 Saint Johns Drive occupies a prime location in the heart of Highland Park. Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Kevin Laszlo is offering the property for $2,995,000, and he’ll hold it open from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
The level of sophistication in this 2003 residence is evident by the intricate wrought-iron patterns in the front door, the exterior balconies, and the breathtaking grand staircase in the two-story foyer. You enter the five-bedroom home through an alcove flanked by impressive columns.
Floor-to-ceiling windows provide views of the front yard from the formal dining room and formal living room, which features one of the home’s three fireplaces. These distinctive areas are unified by their beautifully stained hardwood floors and enormous arched entryways, design elements that continue in the grand family room.
The family room features a wall of windows overlooking the pool. The room is designed so that the television is a tasteful afterthought, not the centerpiece. Instead, attention is focused on the ornate cast-stone fireplace flanked by built-in shelving. The family room is complemented by a wet bar featuring a wine closet, plus a wood-paneled study with a coffered ceiling.
Completely open to the family room is the gourmet kitchen equipped with two pantries, commercial-grade ovens and ranges, and a full-size refrigerator and full-size freezer that are paneled to match the white cabinetry. The island and counters are topped with granite, and the backsplash is made of stone tiles. The breakfast area accesses a second rear staircase.
The master bedroom features a ceiling highlighted by dark wood beams and trim. The master bathroom, which boasts a gorgeous marble step-up tub accented by columns, features his and hers sides with separate walk-in closets. There are four other bedrooms upstairs, plus a media room.
This extremely well-cared-for home, includes a three-car garage, but its location allows for plenty of trips on foot. Armstrong Elementary School is just one block to the west, and SMU is only a few blocks to the north.
