Edward Slater of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate has been tasked with a job that no other Realtor has ever attempted: sell the vintage brick home at 3925 Stonebridge Drive. The house, which was built in 1932, has been owned by three generations of the same family, so it has never gone on the market until now.
Nestled between Turtle Creek and the Katy Trail, the hilltop property occupies more than two-thirds of an acre. The parcel is shaped like a half-circle; streets wrap the curved portion, while the straight edge backs up to another property. So even though the house is in the heart of Dallas, you would have no next-door neighbors.
The dining room, foyer, and formal living room all still bear details — such as dentil molding — that speak to the home’s vintage. The living room is augmented by a true-blue sun room featuring a blue slate floor and walls of windows. It opens up to an expansive stone patio with a slight slope to ensure proper drainage.
The large butler’s pantry is a true throwback. It features wood-paneled walls, a wallpapered ceiling, and a herringbone brick floor. The brick flooring continues into the kitchen, which leads to the two-car garage. The doorway between the two includes a screen door, because maximizing cross-breezes was a necessity before air-conditioning.
The landing at the top of the stairs is generously sized; the homeowners needed enough space to set out pitchers of water for relief from the heat. All four bedrooms are on the second floor, and you have to go through a small study to get to the master suite. It features two dressing rooms in addition to the bedroom and bathroom.
Reflecting the traditions of the time, the second-floor utility room is accessed by a rear staircase that leads to the backyard. The house does have a few modern touches, however. An expansion added another living area and bathroom to the first floor, a game room and bathroom to the second floor, and an elevator between them.
