4100 St. Johns Dr. $3,695,000.

Highland Park history combines with architectural elegance in this 1922 Anton Korn original. Hugh Prather, one of the first developers in Highland Park, commissioned Korn to create a colonial revival mansion near the entrance to the new town, which was being built during the ’20s and ’30s. Prather wanted a grand home that would set the tone for future development. The 5,206-square-foot, four-bedroom home retains all the original details including a large entrance hall with Italian marble and curving Potter Iron Works staircase, large formal rooms, high ceilings, terrace and creek views, music alcove, and sunroom. The enormous dining room features floors that continue to a terrace and breathtaking views of Exall Lake. Dave Perry-Miller for Prudential Texas Properties. 214-369-6000.
