With Holiday Season Coming Up, Here Are Houses With Spaces to Get Crafty


When the holiday season inches into view, we tend to turn up the creativity with arts and crafts projects: completing a gorgeous holiday wreath, building festive centerpieces, or creating window displays that showcase a wintery scene. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a room in the house dedicated to storing craft supplies so all of the glue guns and fabric have a safe place to call their own? Dave Perry-Miller & Associates present three gorgeous estates with impressive craft rooms tailor-made for organized creativity.

The French-influenced estate at 5800 Armstrong Parkway features a galley-style craft room with wall-to-wall bin storage to keep everything from buttons to brushes in working order. The checkered flooring provides a whimsical touch, too. This five-bedroom Park Cities home features high-end finishes throughout, and includes a chef’s kitchen with soapstone countertops, an outdoor wood-burning pizza oven, a second-floor lounge, hand-pillowed limestone walls in the sunroom, an elevator, an art gallery, and even an exterior apartment.

The six-bedroom estate at 5037 Radbrook Place offers a craft room with floor-to-ceiling shelving and hanging rods. Built for the serious crafter, the room also has an island with storage cabinets. This Spanish-inspired property sits on a treed 1-acre lot and has four living areas, two dining areas, a media room, and an exercise room. Outdoors, you’ll find a pool and a cabana.

4013 Southwestern Boulevard is a five-bedroom traditional estate with an all-white craft room neatly tucked behind the mudroom. Crafting is easy to accomplish here because the large room offers plenty of counter and cabinet space and natural light. This home also features high-end finishes such as 5-inch oak herringbone-pattern plank hardwoods, Calcutta marble tiling, onyx countertops, and custom lighting throughout.
