Editor’s note: Greater Dallas is full of must-have houses, ranging from multi-million dollar mansions to sky-high palaces in the clouds to unexpected finds in transitioning neighborhoods. In this continuing series, we’ll keep you abreast of what’s hot on the market and take you inside the most-lusted-after homes in the region.

3608 Drexel Drive

If you are searching for a perfectly classic, American dream of a home, this could be it. As long as you have the means. A winning combination of simplicity and grandeur, this Highland Park home (listed for $3.49 million) exudes old world charm and timeless style. The 1928 build has exquisite details at every corner, from gorgeous mantles in two living areas, to original leaded windows in the upstairs bedroom.

With a prime location overlooking Turtle Creek and a roomy lawn, this elegant manse has curb appeal in spades. The cheery yellow exterior is accented by adorable shutters, simple columns framing the entry, and a red brick walkway.

The front door opens to a wide central hall, which extends through the entire length of the home. Crown molding, beautiful paneling, and more one-of-a-kind architectural flourishes abound. With four bedrooms, three and a half baths, and a sprawling backyard, it is definitely family ready.

While much of this Highland Park home has maintained its historical character, the state-of-the-art kitchen is nothing less than modern. White cabinets, a white subway tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances, and hardwood floors are an updated take on the home’s classic style.

In the back of the home, windows and French doors look out onto the back terrace and lawn, with a second floor balcony perched above. The original screened in porch offers another space to take in fresh air, and is large enough to be used as a living area.
