Magnificent Modern Traditional on Almost an Acre Awaits in North Dallas

It’s just off the Tollway and waiting for your personal touch.

Russwood Acres on nearly an acre creek lot? We’re listening. The property at 5115 Royal Crest Drive is dripping with dazzling curb appeal. From the large yard to the circle drive and even the immaculate landscaping, some might seriously ponder whether they are pulling up to a single-family home or an exclusive country club. And after checking out the backyard setup, the question becomes even more of a legitimate one.

Going inside this 1963 construction, it is evident from the start that the design scheme skews modern transitional. Every space in the house has been reimagined to promote togetherness and an open, cohesive flow. There are multiple places to eat, relax, and entertain including a chef’s kitchen that brings all of the spaces together as only a truly spectacular kitchen can. Think large living area, formal dining space, and more extended sitting spaces sprinkled throughout the lower level.

The bedrooms are also a great source of square footage making it possible for everyone in the family to have their space to spread out and relax. For starters, the downstairs primary room has its own sitting area and French doors that lead outside to a private patio. There are two bedrooms that connect via a Jack and Jill bathroom setup and a third guest room that has a murphy bed and cedar closet. These unique touches allow the third guestroom to be a great flex space if a guest room is not needed. Perhaps a work-from-home office or workstation for your school-aged kiddos when class goes virtual? The possibilities are endless.

And a bonus feature that will be utilized daily by the kids and adults alike? A stairway leads to a multi-purpose room that can be used as a kid’s game room, workout center, media room, or, even better, a combination of all three. This is guaranteed to be the second most beloved spot in the house only to be outdone by the truly exceptional backyard that features a covered patio with a grilling station, fireplace, and television hookup in addition to a large pool and spa. All of this with additional green space to play? Maybe the grass really is greener?
