With picturesque views of Turtle Creek and an undenying Traditional style, this striking wooded estate at 4205 Lakeside Drive in Highland Park captures all attention. Windows line each story of the home creating a perfect atmosphere inside and out.

From the street, viewers are able to capture a home hidden in the woods. A large circle driveway ovals its way around the front and back to the street. A lined drive branches from the circle and leads to the 4 car garage in the back right of the estate. The estate is landscaped with bushes and other greenery. Most of Highland Park homes are highly and elaborately landscaped with flowers of all kinds which, although beautify the home, also make the home look too overdone. A variety of simply trimmed bushes looks just perfect. The one downside to this home is the lack of a pool! A nice big backyard with a nice patio and upper deck, yet no pool?! I guess the future owner will have the option to install one.

The estate covers 11,172 sq. feet with key features including 5 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. The interior of the home is dressed with a yellow foyer and older furniture. Elaborate wall moldings, wood floors, intriguing carpet, wood ceiling beams and castle like curtains finish off each room of the home. Other indoor amenities include 2 master bedrooms, grand living areas, butlers pantry, exercise room, and an elevator.

The home is clearly one of Highland Park’s premier estates. It is listed for $8,995,000.
