Star-Telegram (Sunday) - - Real Estate -

Gior­dano, Weg­man, Walsh and As­so­ciates, an ex­clu­sive af­fil­i­ate of Christie’s In­ter­na­tional Real Es­tate, presents the Baldridge House. De­signed in the early 1900s, it be­came a Texas Land­mark in 1978.

The nearly one-and-ahalf-acre es­tate is pro­tected by a pri­vacy fence and hedge. The over­sized curved drive is ac­cen­tu­ated by its own sep­a­rate en­try and exit gates.

The two-story en­try veranda, with mas­sive lime stone col­umns framed by Ital­ian Cy­press trees, is com­ple­mented by French doors, with arched topped tran­soms.

Upon en­ter­ing, the grand foyer with choco­late brown mar­ble floors, pure white wain­scot­ing, in­tri­cate cof­fered ceil­ings and per­fectly rounded el­lip­ti­cal arches, all draw one’s eyes to­wards the grand sweep­ing stair­way.

The main liv­ing area space is flooded with light. There are twenty-foot ceil- ings, floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows and room to en­ter­tain. The es­tate has three liv­ing spa­ces, a bil­liard room with oak pan­el­ing and highly de­tailed oak cof­fered ceil­ings, four bed­rooms with pine floors, lav­ish bath­rooms and large stor­age spa­ces. A large and spa­cious cus­tom-built wet bar room is adorned with glass front and lighted faux painted cab­i­netry. There is also a pri­vate study with stained pan­el­ing and cus­tom cab­i­netry.

The for­mal din­ing area is ac­cen­tu­ated by a large fire­place, wood beamed ceil­ing and an over­sized chan­de­lier.

The mas­ter suite fea­tures a bath­room with mar­ble coun­ter­tops, heated floor- ing, a stained wood pan­eled tub and his-and- her walk-in clos­ets, a cus­tom fire­place and its own pri­vate bal­cony.

The gourmet kitchen, com­plete with in­for­mal din­ing and keep­ing room fea­tures its own fire­place, com­mer­cial-grade ap­pli­ances, heated tile floors and cus­tom stained wood cab­i­netry.

The lower level of the home has a wine cel­lar. There is a large fully func­tion­ing gym and quar­ters for the staff with a full

kitchen, liv­ing area, bed­room, and bath­room with large closet. There is a guest house on the prop­erty with a steam room and full kitchen.

The grounds of the es­tate are land­scaped and man­i­cured. There are mul­ti­ple out­door liv­ing ar­eas, tran­quil spa­ces, with in­tri­cate foun­tains and man­i­cured gar­dens, a large green space and a large pool with mul­ti­ple lounge ar­eas. The out­door kitchen houses a pizza oven, deep fryer, out­door grill and mar­ble sur­faces.

The home is fully in­te­grated with the lat­est wiring and tech­nol­ogy, with fully func­tion­ing se­cu­rity sys­tems and cam­eras. There is a cen­tral vac­uum sys­tem and an ex­ten­sive au­dio vis­ual sys­tem. There are two garages on the prop­erty.

For ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion or to sched­ule a show­ing of the prop­erty, con­tact Eric Walsh at 817-312-9586.
