This iconic home, situated on one of the most beautiful streets in Highland Park, has been meticulously restored and expanded to create a one of a kind property that is rarely available. 3806 Beverly Drive was built in 1934 for an affluent family in Dallas who had recently gone on a grand tour through Europe where they were inspired to recreate in a home in Highland Park the design elements they had observed in homes and villas throughout Spain and Portugal. In 2013, the current owners undertook a complete renovation where every door, window, floor and wall was carefully replaced, giving great thought to the quality and authenticity of the materials used. Noted architect Wilson Fuqua led the renovation which successfully expanded the main house and added the annex in a manner that flows seamlessly from the original structure. Wilson worked to ensure that the scale and design details were consistent with the spirit of the original. Ceilings, columns, feature windows and the exterior brick surface were all chosen to repeat the original themes. Since the project was completed in late 2015, the property has received many accolades and has been published in interior and architecture magazines and books.
