English Style Estate Home Overlooking Lakewood Golf Course Sold by Douglas Newby
The finest neighborhoods have an anchor of architectural styles and architects. The best neighborhoods also convey a sense of community. The home at 6633 Country Club Circle exemplifies both of these qualities.
Dines and Kraft Designed Homes were Prevalent in Lakewood in the 1920s
In the 1920s, Dines and Kraft were responsible for many of the English style estate homes still enjoyed today in the Lakewood Conservation District, including this historic home at 6633 Country Club Circle. This historic and architecturally significant home at 6633 Country Club Circle enjoys the prime position on an island of only 14 significant homes that look across the golf course of Lakewood Country Club to a clear view of downtown Dallas.
Desirability of a Country Club Circle Home
Besides only having 14 homes on Country Club Circle, there are few cars driving by except for those of the occasional homeowner on the street. While secluded, Country Club Circle connects on both ends to Gaston Avenue, a street that connects downtown Dallas to White Rock Lake.
Lakewood Golf Course Is Your Visual Park
I have often said it’s not how much land a home is on that is important, it is how much land is next to you – a trail, a park, an estate lot, a golf course. Here you will have a 180° view of nature – manicured lawns punctuated with trees and with a backdrop of trees.
Views of Nature from Front Yard, Windows and Balconies
From the front yard, the many windows, the front porches and second floor balcony, you will enjoy uncontested views of the endless undulating golf course and the surrounding trees. These 130 acres of nature also allow unobstructed cooling breezes that blow in from the southeast.
Architect Designed Buildings of the Dallas Skyline are Always in View
The Dallas skyline of architecturally significant high-rises is always in view as a backdrop for the neighborhood. Beyond the golf course and in the foreground of the skyline, you will see the much beloved and ornate tower of the original Lakewood Theater. Even with summer tree foliage, the Dallas downtown skyline, framed by trees, is always in view from the home at 6633 Country Club Circle.
Lakewood Sense of Community
The home at 6633 Country Club Circle is removed from traffic, but is immersed in the Lakewood community. The Lakewood Country Club is a big part of the Lakewood community for those who are members and for those who are not. Lakewood Country Club members on the golf course have always enjoyed the view of this iconic 1923 English style estate home as they go by. It represents the architecture that many people love about Lakewood.
Lakewood 4th of July Fireworks
The 4th of July fireworks display from the Lakewood Country Club golf course brings neighbors out to see their friends and the celebratory fireworks. The front lawn of 6633 Country Club Circle is the front porch of the Lakewood fireworks.
4th of July Lakewood Parade
The Lakewood parade is the best 4th of July parade in Dallas. Homeowners and families line the streets for a parade in which Lakewood families have participated for years. It is good old fashioned fun as it travels through the Lakewood Conservation District.
White Rock Lake is a Dallas Attraction and a Neighborhood Feature
White Rock Lake is a much-loved Dallas destination and in Lakewood a well used neighborhood feature. From Country Club Circle, White Rock Lake is only a mile away. The new Lakewood YMCA and its outdoor swimming pool is only a few blocks away.
Lakewood Shopping Center is Within Walking Distance
Lakewood Shopping Center has all the practical day-to-day stores one might need, like a Whole Foods or a hardware store. Lakewood Shopping Center also has traditional Lakewood restaurants that are family favorites. Increasingly, Lakewood Shopping Center has become the home for stylish coffee shops besides Starbucks and fashionable chef-owned restaurants. The vibrancy of Lakewood increases without losing its neighborhood feel. The Lakewood Shopping Center is only three blocks from 6633 Country Club Circle.
Architectural Splendor of 6633 Country Club Circle
One enters the home to a series of arched openings and of arched divided light windows, with the original carved banister wrapping its way to the second floor.
Formal Living Room Opens to Many Other Rooms
The entrance hall opens to a large formal living room that then opens through a pair of arched glass paned doors to the sunroom sitting area and an open double passageway to the formal dining room.
Primary Bedroom View of Nature
The primary bedroom’s collage of windows frames the blue sky in the arched transom and frames the endless views of the undulating lawns and trees of the golf course in the large center window and extends the views of green in the side lights. The arched single door opens to the sunroom sitting area that shares these splendid views. The primary bedroom balcony extends outside from the bedroom sunroom and offers glamorous views of the golf course and the Dallas downtown skyline.
