This 11,955 square foot home in University Park is located in Volk Estates, an area known for high-priced exclusive properties. The house at 7037 Turtle Creek Blvd. was originally built in 1939, according to the listing. The listing agent said some updates have been made over the years, including two additions.
Co-listing agent Jeanne Shelton with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty said the property had passed to one family for more than 50 years, although that family was not the original owner for whom the house was built.
Shelton said the family who had owned the house for half a century “always maintained the purity of the house’s appearance” during renovations over the years.
The home sits on 0.883 acres of land with fountains, patio areas, extensive landscaping, and a swimming pool.
Shelton said the home’s orientation on the property — it faces Lovers Lane — allows for abundant natural light throughout the house.
“I think the architecture of the house and the way it sits on the grounds is really spectacular,” Shelton said.
The main level of the house has several living areas, including a dining and living room, a “garden room” (as Shelton called it), a library, a great room, and a family room. In the Great Hall, the floors are hand-poured terrazzo with brass inlays, Shelton said. This room features a fireplace, built-in bookcases, and full bar. The kitchen in the house is clad in white marble and has white cabinetry, and there is a breakfast room located nearby. The kitchen is open to the family room, which has a vaulted ceiling, abundant windows, a fireplace and several built-in bookcases. The family room has access to a covered terrace outside.
All of the bedrooms in the house are on the second level, Shelton said. The master suite includes a balcony, sitting area, two bathrooms, and two closets, according to the listing. The remaining five bedrooms are also located on this level, along with a game room, library or living room and laundry room, depending on the floor plan. The third level of the house includes a games room, a powder room and storage space. All levels are accessible by lift.
The house also has a guest bedroom located above the garage. This space includes a bedroom, a bathroom, a living room and a kitchen, according to the floor plan.
The home is listed for $14,600,000 by Jeanne Shelton and Doug Shelton of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.
