What makes this $12,450,000 Highland Park property enticing, according to the listing agent, is its square footage, the size of the lot, and the location.
Listing agent Alex Perry of Allie Beth Allman & Associates said one distinguishing factor that sets this property apart from others is the fact that the location is becoming more popular. With an address at 3518 Armstrong Ave., the home sits just a few blocks from the Knox-Henderson neighborhood where you’ll find shopping and dining amenities.
Perry said this part of town is garnering more interest from buyers, and that it will only continue to become a more desirable location.
“I think that Knox and Abbott area is becoming more and more popular,” Perry said. “I think that, in three years, that’s going to be the location that people go to. The fact that you’re walking distance to that and Katy Trail is [a] huge value-add at this point.”
The home is 12,234 square feet with six bedrooms, six bathrooms and two half-bathrooms. The property is 0.53-acres, and the backyard has a pool, spa and outdoor entertaining area.
Perry said the home’s layout is well-suited to entertaining because most of the living spaces are on the first level.
The home’s double front doors lead into a grand foyer with a staircase that winds up to the second level of the home. The home’s great room — a two-story-tall space with wood beams that accent the vaulted ceiling — sits at the opposite end of the foyer. The space is full of natural light with multiple sets of windows that look out onto the property. A large fireplace sits on one end, and the room is large enough to fit two living space arrangements and even a small table off of one side.
The home’s kitchen has wood beams that accent the ceiling, white cabinets and countertops, two sinks, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances and a large island in the center that adds countertop space for food preparation or serving. A breakfast area with a fireplace sits just off of the kitchen, and the home also has a formal dining room. The home has a catering kitchen, a formal living room and a study, Perry said.
The primary suite sits on the first level, and the bedroom has a fireplace, views of the backyard and enough space for a sitting area. The primary bathroom has a spa-like feel with a freestanding bathtub and a large walk-in closet.
The remaining five bedrooms are on the second level, and each one has an en suite bathroom. The home also has an upstairs game room, an exercise room and a media room.
Perry said it’s rare to find a home in Highland Park that has enough backyard space to fit a pool, a yard, a guest house and a three-car garage like you find here.
“It feels like an estate home,” Perry said. “It’s hard to accomplish that in HP because the lots are so small, yet this is not.”
