7415 Breeze Bay Road
European-Style Manse built by Steven Hild near Preston Road and Forest Lane in North Dallas. Reminiscent of a French Country Estate with its 10-foot ceilings, its imported stone and hardwood floors, and its real Venetian plaster walls, the sprawling, two-story home — which was planned and designed by award-winning architect Stephen B. Chambers — is distinguished on all sides by charming views of its natural setting. Think thick green foliage; soothing water features; tall mature trees (Oak Japanese Maple); and a vast lake where ducks and geese cavort. Upon entering this Bucolic, 5,800-square-foot Valhalla through custom wrought-iron gates — and just past the three-car garage — steps into a luxurious space that might have been transported from province. Indeed, many of its features — from the fireplaces and flooring to some of the doors — have been reclaimed from antique European dwellings. The limestone-floor entry leads to a stately dining room — silver leaf with glaze trim rings the room’s tall ceiling — and then on to an expansive sunken living area. There, one quickly notices the oak herringbone pattern flooring with mahogany inlays, the wood-burning limestone fireplace — one of four in the home all with hand-picked cast stone mantles imported from France! — and the French doors boasting spectacular views of the backyard trees and lake.
