Custom built by Hawkins-Wellwood Homes in 1999, the five-bedroom French Classic home at 3800 Wentwood Drive is elegant yet unique. Located in University Park, the home is being marketed by Angela McCants and Dave Perry-Miller for $2,199,000. It will be open from 1 to 3 on Sunday afternoon.
The combination of dark-stained floors, Venetian plaster walls, and exposed wooden beams in the ceilings gives the formal living room at the front of the house a distinct museum quality. The elegance continues in the formal dining room, where the floor-to-ceiling windows bring in plenty of natural light.
Just as in the formal living room, the family room features built-in shelving on either side of the fireplace. Beyond the wall of windows is a covered patio with an outdoor kitchen leading to a pergola and lovely lap pool. Meanwhile, a picture window connects the family room to all of the activity in the main kitchen.
The dark cabinets on the kitchen’s perimeter and in the island provide plenty of storage; the island also includes a separate cooler. The hardwoods match the rest of the first floor’s common rooms, and the countertops are immaculate. A double oven and range makes it easy to cook for plenty of guests.
In addition to its five bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, and two half-baths, the home boasts an assortment of rooms that present multiple options. On the first floor, there’s a room with dark wood paneling, built-ins on either side of a bench seat, and an en-suite bath. It could be a guest room or a mother-in-law suite. The upper levels feature two rooms with so much storage and counter space that they could be employed as craft rooms, studios, or offices. The one lined in cherry wood, which has a separate entry, was designed so the owners’ children could study together.
The master bedroom features a tray ceiling and is spacious enough to accommodate a seating area. Its two walk-in closets are filled with shelves. The master bathroom, with a separate tub and shower, is as bright and airy as can be.
This corner lot is just two blocks south of Northwest Highway, providing easy access to both Central Expressway and the Dallas North Tollway. The acclaimed Hyer Elementary School, Coffee Park, and The Plaza at Preston Center are all within bike-riding distance.
