A centrally located, well-equipped kitchen makes everyday living a joy. The kitchen at 3110 Cornell Avenue in Highland Park is not only efficient, but the exquisite marble walls and countertops make it also incredibly beautiful.
Recently remodeled, the kitchen stands between the spacious family room with a fireplace and a casual breakfast room. The elegant dining room is connected by a useful butler’s pantry, keeping the cook in the middle of the fun.
A window over the farm sink bathes the kitchen in natural light. There is a large island with Vermont Danby marble countertops in front of a commercial-grade, Wolf cooktop and a double oven. Completing the picture are a separate Miele refrigerator and freezer.
This four-bedroom traditional home has 4,886 square feet of living space.
Near SMU and the Bush Presidential Library, the home is within walking distance to the Katy Trail, and the great shopping and restaurants of the Knox-Henderson area. Children could attend the acclaimed Armstrong Elementary School in HPISD.
Enter from the circular drive around a well-landscaped front yard. A welcoming wooden door bracketed by two glass panels leads to the home’s center hall plan with the dining and formal living rooms flanking the spacious foyer. Throughout are hardwood flooring, trim work, wainscoting and Palladian arches.
Upstairs is the master bedroom suite with a sitting area, its own fireplace and a balcony that has views of the backyard. Like the kitchen, the bath is clad with marble walls and flooring. The separate shower features body sprays, and the walk-in closet is large enough to hold the most lavish wardrobe.
Two additional bedrooms and a separate apartment suite are upstairs. There are four full baths and two half-baths.
Outside is a covered patio next to the landscaped backyard inside a wooden fence. The area, overlooked by a balcony, would be great for grilling dinner for friends and family.
