Peek inside a home in Dallas’ gated Glen Abbey with a top designer’s interior touches

If the interior of a home makes a lasting first impression, why not hire one of the world’s best designers?

This home on the market in Dallas’ prestigious Glen Abbey neighborhood was designed by Jan Showers, recently recognized by Architectural Digest as one of the best designers in the world.

Built in 2007, the four bedroom, four bathroom, four half bathroom home has two main suites, two kitchens and is on a double plot of land next to a stream in the condominium. The appearance of Santa Barbara is emphasized by modern details.

Listing agent Dona Timm called the house “immaculate”.

“No detail has been overlooked, from the high-end appliances and luxurious amenities to the graceful and seamless connection of the interior through the beautiful exteriors,” she said in a statement.

At 8,189 square feet, the house is spacious and has plenty of spaces for entertaining. Immediately behind the entrance there is a large dining room on the left with space for 20 guests. To the right of the entrance is a living room with uniquely designed bookcases and a fireplace.

The main living room is just a few steps past the entrance and is two levels high. There is a statement staircase on one side. The living room is bathed in natural light due to several large windows and has two separate seating areas. A hallway on the second level overlooks the living room.

The kitchen has built-in cupboards, two countertop islands (one with seating) and two sinks. On the first floor there is an entire room that is used to store porcelain. The built-in cupboards show the stored items through glass windows. A breakfast room off the kitchen looks out onto the terrace, and there is a second kitchen on the first floor.

A bedroom suite on the ground floor has a sitting area and a private bathroom with a large bathtub, two sinks, a vanity and a shower.

One of the upstairs suites has its own living room between the bedroom and the en-suite bathroom. A third bedroom with its own bathroom is on the second floor.
