The tall, sliding-glass doors bring the outdoor beauty so close, you almost think you can reach out and touch the leafy green trees, the koi pond, and the burbling water feature just outside. The white interior walls may remind you of nothing so much as a fine art gallery. The home’s clean, modern lines throughout, you quickly realize, denote a unique residence of class, luxury and unparalleled taste.
These may well be your first impressions of 4118 Rock Creek Drive, a contemporary urban oasis nestled off a secluded cul-de-sac in Dallas’s exclusive Turtle Creek Stonebridge neighborhood. Built in 2003 and recently updated by famed designer Gonzalo Bueno, the sun-splashed, 3,904-square-foot residence boasts four bedrooms and four and a half baths-and such a sublime, Zen-like aura, you may never want to leave!
The home’s specialness is evident from the moment you step inside the front door and encounter the dramatic, slate-black entryway. It gives way to the huge living room, which features those spectacular views of the outdoors. Flanked at one end by an enormous gas fireplace, the long, dramatic space sports 12-foot-tall ceilings, two seating areas, museum-finish walls with art lighting, and a stunning nook hewn of Ara Bescato Orobico Italian marble for sculpture or books.
Just beyond, there’s a chef’s dream of a sleek Cantoni kitchen. Think white quartz countertops, built-in cabinets, a breakfast bar, an island, and all the latest appliances, from a Miele microwave and Sub-Zero refrigerator to a Wolf double oven.
The polished cement floor found in the kitchen and living area leads past a hallway to a generous, downstairs master bedroom. It includes a private terrace and lush garden just outside, as well as a full bath with stone double sinks and a double shower. The upstairs bedrooms are reached via gleaming, bamboo-wood stairs with custom iron handrails.
The stairs lead to two rooms to the west, and another on the home’s east side. Inside the latter you might think you’re living in a treehouse, so spectacular are the views through its glass doors. The two remaining bedrooms, both with en-suite baths, include a second master, whose bath features a double sink and marble countertops. An adjacent balcony offers still more exquisite views of the home’s stone-floored, outdoor entertainment area.
And, what a stunningly beautiful area it is! With two levels, its centerpiece is a large (36-feet-by-13-feet) swimming pool, fed by a charming waterfall that’s not far away from the fish pond. Scattered about are multiple seating and lounging areas, all guarded by lush green foliage including bamboo trees.
The home at 4118 Rock Creek also features double-pane windows and window shades; exposed-brick walls; advanced lighting and sound systems; and an attached, two-car garage.
