Dallas’ Own Italian Villa Hits the Market

This $4.9 Million Turtle Creek Mansion Brings Grand European Charm

BY // 10.24.17

A home in Turtle Creek is nice, but a home in Turtle Creek that makes you feel as if you’ve stepped into an Italian villa is even nicer. 4107 Turtle Creek Boulevard is the closest you’ll get to la dolce vita in Dallas. The gorgeous Italian Renaissance home was built in 1925 on an equally handsome and spacious lot in the desirable Dallas neighborhood.

The 4,484-square-foot home has a pale rose-hued stucco exterior, complemented by a red clay-tiled roof. The recently restored lead windows are framed by charming, pistachio-green shutters, and the arched front door is surrounded by stone.

Inside, white-washed walls offset stunning details like the intricate floor tiles in the hallway, sitting room and kitchen (some of which were sourced from European churches). Abundant windows and French doors flood the home with sunlight — and in the evening, you have a different, stylish light fixture in each room.

In fact, each room has its own distinct character. The main living room features natural wood beams on the ceiling and a stately stone and copper fireplace. In the nearby sitting room, a trio of floor-to-ceiling, arched windows and French doors lead into one of the property’s many green areas. The kitchen mixes old world romance and modern functionality with white marble counter tops, gold hardware, and a massive, antique-style stove range.

The master suite includes a sitting room with a fireplace, a study and separate his and hers closets and bathrooms. One of the bathrooms holds a freestanding copper tub, while the other holds a large shower.

Separate guest quarters offer an additional living area, kitchenette, full bedroom and full bathroom.

The outdoor areas of the property are just as grand as the sprawling home. Noted landscape designer Robert Bellamy created a lush maze of outdoor sitting areas and unique surprises, including a pergola, a sculpted fireplace, a dove cage, and a chicken house which matches the home. The backyard also holds a rectangular pool and a separate tiled fountain. Bellisima!
