Unique Home with Private Lake – $12,500,000
Surrounded by other large properties, 10660 Strait Lane offers the combination of heavily treed acreage and expensive improvements that has made Strait Lane one of the most desirable addresses in Dallas. A private setting from the street provided by a long approach to the home’s entrance and mature plantings along the property lines, this gated 4.697 acre estate reflects the creative genius of its owners. Constructed of impeccable quality in 2001 with choices such as the thick stucco walls and metal roofing, the structure was built to last generations. The style defies simple characterization. It is a bold design that uses strong colors, distinctive and delightful floor and ceiling finishes, perhaps it’s Italian or modern or Southwestern. Looking beyond the artistic flair, one would be rewarded by understanding that the house features a fantastic floor plan and has excellent sitting on the land. Well proportioned entertaining spaces have excellent flow and take full advantage of gorgeous views of the grounds through large contemporary windows.

Boasting a private lake with fountains, waterfalls and a creek side setting, the resort-like property offers something for every occasion: multiple outdoor living and entertaining areas, a glass-tiled pool and spa, a tennis court, and a jogging track that circumnavigates the grounds. There is even a whimsical tree house/overlook at the creek. On the northeast corner of the property near the creek, a large pavilion with a pizza oven is perfect for hosting outdoor parties and gatherings. At night the lighting in the mature forest of trees allows for a gentle moonlit ambiance.
The property offers plenty of room for parking, including garage parking for four cars, a large circle drive, and a service entrance with a secondary lot. There is also a large garage and storage room at the rear of the property that is being used by grounds-keeping crews, which can double as a catering staging area.
