One of Lakewood’s most prestigious, private estates is now available. The 4,532-square-foot home at 7148 Tokalon Drive – which also includes a 619-square-foot, one-bedroom guest casita – presents an exciting opportunity to own 1.3 acres of breathtaking grounds, just one block from White Rock Lake. It’s priced at $3,999,000, and is available for showings by private appointment.
“This special treasure was actually featured on the 2010 Lakewood Home Tour,” Johnson says. “The unique craftsmanship of multiple artisans is on display throughout the home, from the custom stained glass and ironwork, to the handmade tile flooring, cabinet pulls, and more.”
Enter the grounds through a gated drive with security camera. Mature trees punctuate the lot, including a hand-carved tree trunk that serves as a “permanent” roost for a hawk and two owls.
Inside, it’s an entertainer’s paradise, with a fabulous chef’s kitchen and a sunken dining room with a wall of windows and room enough to host large dinner parties. For the wine connoisseur, a refrigerated room stores 1,800 bottles to accommodate the most extensive of collections.
There are also multiple living areas, which contain two of the home’s three fireplaces. The third fireplace is in the master suite, which includes a covered balcony overlooking the backyard, and a master bath with a pounded copper tub and wet bar.
The home also features a beautiful study with hand-milled floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, and a first-floor workroom that could easily be converted to a downstairs bedroom.
While the indoor spaces are comfortable yet luxurious, the outdoors satisfy your desire for serenity and relaxation. More than 2,500 square feet of decks with custom iron railing and an outdoor kitchen with pizza oven — along with a pitching and putting green, and backyard gazebo — combine to create a personal space you never want to leave. A climate-controlled storage shed, mosquito misting system and 63 tree lights on timers, also add a functional component to your time outside.
