Here is 4608 Lakeside Drive in the prominent and historic Highland Park town of north Dallas. Listed just days ago, the 10,724 sq. foot villa includes sweeping curb appeal, marvelous Mediterranean style, and a definite address to impress. Located down the street from the Dallas County Club, the residence faces Lakeside Park, a quiet get-a-way for the rich and famous of the Park Cities. Squeezed onto a less than desirable 0.38 of an acre, the main house includes 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms with a 3 car garage, catering kitchen, outdoor lounge area with fireplace and grill, exercise room, home theater, and more. That’s not all – this home also carries a hefty price tag: $11,950,000. But you must realize, this residence is a perfect example of residential “location, location, location.” The listing says it best when stating that 4608 Lakeside is built “on the most prestigious street in Dallas” and on “the best location on Lakeside Drive.”

    Eh. Not bad. Can’t really figure out why there isn’t a single photograph of the interior. I am curious about the 2 GIGANTIC home directly west of this place (on Preston Road). They both look in excess of 30K sq ft and are both stunning! Any info?

    NO pictures of the interior, AT ALL.

    TWELVE MILLION DOLLARS for NOT EVEN half-an-acre.

    A house that’s eaten up easily 2/3 to 3/4 of its lot.

    I don’t care how luxurious, well-located, technologically advanced, beautifully decorated or WHATEVER else is done to a house…….if I don’t have a backyard big enough for even a medium sized-dog to run in, ON GRASS, it’s useless to me. And frankly, I’ll be forever aghast that anyone would pay even half of that for such a small lot.

    The exterior is beautiful, but it’s way too big for the lot. There should be much more of a back yard than there is, especially for this price. I love Highland Park (my father used to live in the neighborhood) but this house is on the wrong side of the lake. Instead of being next to the lake, it has to look across the road to the lake. Pictures of the interior would be nice…

    the mega houses on Preston Rd. are a Beaux Arts fantasy from the 1920s that belongs to billionaire Ed Cox. then a smaller 3/4 acre,14,000 sq. foot french designed home by Richard Drummond Davis. below that is one of the finest houses built in Dallas- it’s a Quinlin Terry designed masterpiece that was featured in his book and is called “Highland Park House”. and below that (or south of ) is Billionaire developer Harlan Crow’s house design by a DC architect in conjunction with Dallas architect DC Broadstone. you can see two amazing flyovers of these house in the website for their builder Sebastian Construction Group- http://sebastiancg.com/SEBMain.html. there is also an Antoine Predock designed contemporary home and on Preston/Armstrong is billionaire Jerry Jones’ house designed by Dallas firm Boerder-Snyder.

    The “mega house”(white with orange lookin roof and very impressive landscaping) right next to the 14,000 sq ft home is owned by John Muse. I believe it is just under 30,000 sq ft. He’s the chairman of HM capital partners and former business partner of former tx rangers owner Tom Hicks. The other giant home that Jason pointed out belongs to Ed Cox is the home with Kenny forders favorite library.. 😉
