Elegance and sophistication combine with the perfect location in this majestic lakeside estate – with more than 11,000 square feet – located at 2326 Perkins Road in the heart of Arlington. Nestled well off the main road, the private retreat is welcoming with its towering trees, lush landscape and inviting facade with an elevated, double-door grand entrance.
Guests are met by classic marble floors, paired with rich “French-Brown” hardwoods, an elegant floating staircase and the gorgeous formal living area. Rich wood accents complement a more casual living area nearby with its own bar area for endless entertaining. The bright island kitchen provides granite counters, high-end stainless appliances, two sinks, a service/breakfast bar and a large dining nook. For larger gatherings, pass thru the quaint butler’s area with lighted glass cabinets to the elaborate formal dining area.
Enjoy the peaceful lake views from the veranda that wraps around the rear of this level. The right wing of the main floor is home to an elegant guest quarter and richly appointed library/study. Though there are four levels, an elevator and two stairways grant easy choices in getting there. Four bedrooms are housed upstairs, three with built-in desks, private baths and walk-in closets.
The master is truly a retreat with its fireplace, separate reading/sitting room, wet bar and fantasy bathing area, enhanced with timeless marble accents, a “wall of drawers” and his-and-her closets. From its own terrace, enjoy crystal clear views of the lake and even the city of Fort Worth. Conveniently, in the next room sits a quiet office area. Perched in the top level is a private observatory, encircled with seven windows.
A basement has been transformed for family fun, with yet another living area, game room, bar/kitchenette and workout room with sauna. This fabulous estate is proudly presented by Michael Cunningham and the Arlington office of Ebby Halliday, Realtors in Arlington and is being offered at $2,275,000.
