Sophisticated Details Abound in This Beautiful Home in Gated Community


Pam Woods of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate is pleased to present 6924 Stone Meadow Drive, a three-bedroom home in North Dallas’ Lake Forest community, which is being offered for $1,700,000.

Built in 2007 by Gage Homes with interior design by Sandy Hale-Zisman, the home features a welcoming floor plan, with most rooms linked by wide, arched doorways. The sophisticated finish-out includes extensive crown molding and 9-inch baseboards. The oak floors are three-quarters of an inch think and have been lightly hand-scraped. They feature a herringbone pattern in the entryway, the formal dining room, the library, and the wet bar, which is complemented by a wine closet.




The living room has a 22-foot cathedral ceiling lined with handsome wood beams. A gas fireplace that can be ignited via remote control sits opposite a bay window providing views of the heated pool and spa with three waterfalls. The pool area is complemented by a patio with a built-in grill, a ceiling fan, and heaters.




The living room is open to the gourmet kitchen, which features a Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, a Thermador eight-burner range above double ovens, a warming drawer, and a large island with a second sink and bar seating. The refrigerator, freezer, and dishwasher are paneled to match the cabinets.




The downstairs master suite features a tall tray ceiling and French doors leading to the rear yard. The master bath includes a jetted tub, a separate shower with dual heads, two walk-in closets, and two water closets. Just beyond the master suite is the utility room with beadboard cabinets, which leads to the two-car, climate-controlled garage. A one-car garage on the opposite side of the house accesses the library, which is lined with built-ins and features a coffered ceiling and a remote-controlled gas fireplace.




The second floor, which can be accessed via the grand staircase or the elevator, is separated from the first floor by a 3-foot crawl space that mutes the sound of upstairs footsteps. There are two bedroom suites upstairs as well as a second living area. The attic/storage space is so extensive that a portion of it could easily be devoted to creating a fourth bedroom.




Lake Forest is a gated community, providing unparalleled security in the heart of the city. To schedule a showing, contact Pam Woods at 214-277-0975 or

Premier Property in Lake Forest Offers Luxury and Security to Qualified Buyer

Buyers looking for both luxury and privacy will fall in love with 12269 Pecan Forest Drive, a 10,000-square-foot mansion on the premier lot in Lake Forest, an exclusive gated community that is guarded 24 hours a day. Not only does it occupy two-thirds of an acre, the property also provides access to the expansive greenbelt adjacent to White Rock Creek. Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Karen Fry is marketing the property for $3,750,000.




Built by Sharif & Munir Custom Homes in 2006, this palace boasts a beautiful open floor plan that makes entertaining on any scale a breeze. The stunning two-story foyer features a sparkling marble floor and a grand staircase, and is open to the dining room and great room. Your eyes will naturally be drawn to the slightly coved ceiling in the dining room and the coffered ceiling in the great room, which features a wall of built-in shelves anchored by a cast-stone fireplace.




Both of those rooms lead to the kitchen, which is a chef’s dream, featuring an oversized granite island, stainless-steel appliances, and side-by-side refrigerator and freezer.




The kitchen’s breakfast room provides beautiful views of the backyard, which offers a pool, a private putting green for improving your golf game, and a patio with a fireplace and a built-in grill.




The downstairs master suite is luxurious, with built-in shelves, a fireplace, a sitting area, his and her baths, and spacious walk-in closets with dressing areas. Just off the man’s bathroom is a covered outdoor hot tub.




Adjacent to the master suite is the richly paneled study with a fireplace and a secret computer closet. The downstairs is completed with a guest suite, a pool bath, and a hobby room with a full bath that could become a fifth bedroom.




At the top of the grand staircase, you’ll find a paneled game room with a wet bar and access to a balcony with gorgeous views. That leads to a media room that puts to shame any theater you could find at a multiplex. The second floor also includes two bedrooms with private baths, plus two storage areas.




Lutron lighting, electric phantom screens on the patio, smart thermostats, an elevator, six zones of heat and air, and a four-car garage are just a few of the amenities you will find in this exceptional home.
