Hot Property: A Greenway Parks Spanish Colonial With a Wine Lair

Listing agent Charme Gallini wished she had counted all the trees at 5338 Drane Dr., which is tucked between Inwood Road and the Dallas North Tollway. The half-acre property has a little bit of everything, like live oaks and maples. “Certainly, you get acorns in the fall,” she says.  

The house sits on one of the larger lots in Greenway Parks. It’s a small, but active neighborhood. There are “people that have been in there for decades,” she says. “Their kids are grown and gone, and they stay there.”

There’s plenty of character in the neighborhood, and 5338 Drane Dr. is no exception. Built in the 1950s and expanded in the 1980s, the Spanish Colonial has a “charm that is just unmatched,” Gallini says. It has a terracotta roof and stone walls, giving the property a Mediterranean vibe. The villa-like backyard includes covered porches and walkways, arches, a stone outdoor fireplace, a pool, an additional bathroom, and a turfed yard. 

Inside, the house was arranged to celebrate the finer things in life. There’s a large wine cellar that feels more like a wine lair, a “spectacular” dining room that opens to the backyard, hardwood floors, formal and informal living rooms, and more. The halls have museum finish walls and art lighting, Gallini says. “It really acts as an art gallery.” 

The house has three separate bedroom wings. “It makes for very flexible space for all different types of living,” Gallini says. In the primary wing, there’s access to a covered plaza, plus another room that could be used as either an office or an extra bedroom. There are two “gigantic” bedrooms in the guest wing with plenty of built-ins. In the third wing, there’s a single bedroom with its own full bath and separate house entry. “Somebody could actually live there and not go into the rest of the house and have access in and out,” says Gallini, which makes the space conducive as a mother-in-law, nanny, or housekeeper’s suite.
