5427 Greenbrier Drive in Devonshire - Briggs Freeman Sotheby's luxury homes for sale in Dallas Fort Worth - den

This custom-built stone home is reminiscent of the architecture in the English countryside, with one and a half stories and on a beautiful corner lot. The property is private, with a stone wall and beautiful gardens. Since the home was custom built in 2007, it is perfectly designed as a mixture of the old and the new. Architect Paul Turney is famed for his designs of this style, and builder Charles Haggard has created them to perfection. The hardwood floors and kitchen cabinets are made of black walnut, which adds warmth to the thick-cut limestone floors and other thoughtful finishes. The master bedroom is downstairs, and it features a beautiful Calcutta Gold marble bath. The stairway is walnut with custom iron railing by a local Dallas artisan. The second level includes three generous bedrooms, all off of a main living area or game room.

Built in 1940, this home has been tastefully updated and expanded over the past several years. It offers modern touches, lots of windows to show off the outdoors, yet it still has the comforting feel of the past. The entry creates an amazing first impression with a limestone corridor and a 25-foot wall for displaying your art collection. To the left is a formal dining area with picture window for views over the lawn. The living room is lined by glass, vaulted ceiling, with focus on a giant stone fireplace. This room is truly indoor-outdoor living at its best! The master bedroom, a sun-filled study, and two more bedrooms are downstairs. Additional guest bedroom and game room are upstairs, with a huge storage closet. The gameroom could easily be the fifth bedroom, studio, or a large study.

This stunning Mediterranean sits quietly tucked away near the end of a cul-de-sac over a quaint bridge on a heavily treed lot. Located near a brook with lush trees and thick bamboo, this home has a peaceful presence. This is the designer’s own home and the attention to detail is apparent upon approach with beautiful stucco and decorative tile on the exterior. Taken to the studs two years ago, this home has undergone a major renovation. In full view from the living room is the dining room and kitchen just beyond, making for a perfect gathering place. Off the dining area is a small gated wine room with amazing detail, down to the bottle openings built into the wall and brick ceiling. The kitchen features a large island that has enough space for preparing your favorite dishes and provides a great place for mealtime.
