Benedict Drive

This stately 1930s traditional home was renovated to compliment the original architectural details with a modern/vintage flair.  Situated on a large lot in The Cloisters neighborhood near White Rock Lake in Dallas, this stately home reminds us of a well-appointed and avant garde English estate.

A 1960s addition was the inspiration behind incorporating retro details such as splashes of brass and globe fixtures to give the feel that the entire house may have been redone at the same time in that era.  

Maestri Studio used classic elements such as the greek key (complimentary of the original exterior wood detailing at the windows) as the foot of the kitchen island and also as the pattern of the pool tile and rear terrace.  Modern patterns are used in more traditional materials throughout, such as the terracotta tile backsplash in the kitchen, marble hex tile and geometric wallpaper in the master bath.  

Maestri Studio provided full-service architecture and interior design for this project as well as the pool and landscape design for this project.
