This home, built on the grounds of the former Amon G. Carter estate, has French Quarter charm facing the 10th fairway of River Crest Country Club golf course.

The enviable address is surrounded by mature oak trees and is filled with Southern charm inside and out. Elegant wrought iron window boxes and balconies overlook the 10th fairway in the front yard and stunning courtyards frame the blue stone-wrapped pool in the back.

With 5,212 square feet of indoor space, this two-story boasts four bedrooms and six baths. A separate 600-square-foot guesthouse is complete with its own kitchen and full bath.

The expansive, nearly half-acre property was once a part of the Amon G Carter estate. The original brick pillars to the Carter estate still greet you as you enter the drive.

Inside, stunning Parisian-style parquet floors meet large picture windows streaming loads of natural light, opening each room to the professionally landscaped yards and courtyards. The feel is light and airy, painted in neutral tones that allow the architecture to take a starring role. Arched doorways lend to the easy flow and vaulted ceilings are highlighted by heavy wooden beams.

A hand-painted ceiling lends a soft glow to the formal dining room. Multiple dens allow for intimate entertaining or hosting large parties and family events.

The efficient kitchen includes both coffered and beamed ceilings. Designer elements such as custom cabinetry, granite counters, stainless steel appliances and an island with breakfast bar seating set off the space.

The focal point of the foyer is the dramatic winding wrought iron staircase. A gracious master suite awaits at the top, where a cozy sitting area with custom bookcases makes an inviting retreat. The French doors off the terrace lead to your own private balcony. The master bath offers sanctuary with its jetted tub, rain shower with frameless enclosure, elongated separate vanities and expansive walk-in closet.

A private and secluded backyard is anchored by a sparkling pool and spa with water feature. Carter’s original rose wall lines the backyard, now laced with flowing tendrils of ivy.
