Welcome to the warmth and charm of 3900 Centenary Dr., located on a large, corner lot in the “Fairway” of University Park. Just two blocks from coveted Hyer Elementary, the current owners extensively renovated the property to work beautifully with today’s lifestyle.
Filled with exceptional details such as warm hardwoods, French beams, rich moldings, tall ceilings and three hand-cut Lueders limestone fireplaces, this home is as comfortable as it is inviting.
The cook’s kitchen, modeled after Julia Child’s own, is the centerpiece of the home. Special features include custom white cabinetry with maple interiors, honed black granite counters, Viking range, Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer and more. Seating includes a large central kitchen table and separate morning area (that also serves as an additional living area) overlooking the outdoor pool and spa and a spectacular shade garden reminiscent of the gardens of Provence with its hollies, yews and crushed pea gravel path.
With large rooms and outdoor spaces that welcome entertaining, this home was also created to meet the demands of day-to-day life. It boasts four ensuite bedrooms, including a large master with fireplace, sitting area and Juliette balconies. A carpeted third floor with full bath could be a fifth bedroom, and quarters above the garage are just the right size for out-of-town guests to feel right at home.
Outside, exceptional gardens and landscaping include 300 linear feet of New England stacked stone which surrounds the English border garden, with 72 rose bushes in bloom from March through October, plus salvia, foxgloves, rosemary, thyme and other perennials. Pool landscaping was inspired by the Four Seasons in Las Colinas. Listed by Malinda Arvesen for $2,050,000.
