About 701 Grandview Place

This gated residence represents incomparable Terrell Hills grandeur, defining privilege and grace for the twenty-first century. As you approach the home, a circular driveway and manicured grassy lawn is punctuated by a stunning bronze fountain, setting a luxurious, yet welcoming tone. A vision of architect Atlee B. Ayres realized in the 1930s, this residential compound offers exquisite, period-style detailing inimitable in craftsmanship, as well as elegantly appointed rooms, all lavish in proportion for grand-scale or intimate gatherings. Built with no-holds barred craftsmanship, a paneled office/den located beyond the staircase offers a quiet sanctuary for work or reading. Oversized windows throughout the home offer an abundance of wonderful sunlight, creating a warm and richly imagined floor plan. Primed for grand entertaining, the formal living room adjoins a separate living space with an open wet bar. A nearby dining room comfortably hosts special guests for a divine sit-down dinner, intended for a lifestyle that embraces both intimate moments and lavish soirées. An open kitchen - suited for the culinary enthusiast - offers top-of-the-line appliances and opens to a charming breakfast area overlooking the family room, perfect for relaxing after a Sunday brunch or light repast. Carefully planned entertainment spaces include an elegantly appointed theatre room and a climate-controlled wine cellar. Sleeping quarters are spacious and include the owner's retreat, complete with a sitting area, fireplace and luxurious spa bath. Guests are drawn by phenomenally expansive, sunny grounds with a broad lawn, studded by gracefully entwined oaks. Multiple patios and balconies offer plenty of options for family and friends to gather. - 1/19/2021 4:38:17 PM
