The five-bedroom home at 3601 Lexington Ave., situated on a half-acre corner lot in Old Highland Park, was sold by Blake Eltis and Aaron Carroll. It features indoor and outdoor living with a Santa Barbara charm, said Eltis.
The open kitchen has two islands, built-in appliances and exposed beams. The primary suite includes a sitting room, dual bathrooms with heated flooring and walk-in closets. Amenities include a temperature-controlled wine cellar that holds more than a thousand bottles, a covered porch and a pool and spa.
Evoking the allure of provincial France, the four-bedroom residence at 4241 Lorraine Ave. in Highland Park has a slate roof, and is surrounded by mature trees and landscaping. Sold by Erin Mathews, this two-story home blends six stone fireplaces, Parisian-style chandeliers, reclaimed wood flooring and white oak beams with 21st-century luxuries.
The home also has an elevator, a state-of-the-art kitchen and a three-car garage. All the bedrooms and guest quarters are on the second floor. The courtyard includes a fountain-fed pool.
In the gated Los Arboles community in Preston Hollow, the three-bedroom European villa at 15 Robledo Drive was sold by Allie Beth Allman. The home features a limestone exterior and an interior with imported reclaimed oak flooring and 100-year-old wood beam ceilings. Every room was designed to create a different focal point and experience.
Several terraces overlook the landscaped backyard, which offers a putting green, a heated pool and spa, a water feature and a cabana with a pool bathroom. A fourth bedroom and bathroom could be built out under the existing roof.
