Highland Park House of the Month

Earlier this summer, Park City People highlighted a Sebastian-built project, calling it “one of the finest homes in Highland Park” (and that’s a high bar!)

This Italian Renaissance villa on Armstrong Parkway was designed by Richard Drummond Davis Architects (RDDA). (If that name sounds familiar, perhaps you’ve heard about RDDA’s most recent award, Luxe 2019 Regional Red Winner.)

Davis is a Texas-based architect with a national footprint. While the firm has designed a wide range of commercial projects, from  the British West Indies to the Dallas National Golf Club, it’s best known for  homes inspired by period European architecture. Over 400 of them…homes inspired by period European architecture, including French, French Classical, French Country, Italian Villas, Spanish Mediterranean.

Following is an excerpt from Park Cities People, describing this remarkable property:

“It gets no finer than this: nearly 12,000 square feet of sophisticated luxuries, including four bedrooms, five full baths, guest or staff quarters, a large chef’s kitchen, a bookshelf-lined paneled library, a grand entry hall, and multiple living areas. The workmanship is beyond compare, with detailed millwork, elegant finishes, and superb fittings. The heavily-treed grounds offer 1.6 acres of lush landscaping, a sparkling pool, and a charming pool house — perfect extensions to the exquisite living and entertaining areas of the home. It is a grand yet comfortable setting for a grand yet casual life.”
