"I love the privacy of this thriving area, and all the amenities — like golf, tennis, the gym, and the restaurant — of the Dominion Country Club," the Kuper Sotheby's Realtor says.
"One of my favorite things about the neighborhood is the pond with the koi fish and swans," he adds, demonstrating just how beautiful and well-thought-out this area is.
Rivera offered up a few more of his personal favorites about life in The Dominion. Here's his guide to the area:
Where to eat & drink
Get ready, says Rivera, because the list of his neighborhood favorites is long: Silo Terrace Oyster Bar, Bourbon Street, The Grill at Leon Springs, Acu Bistro, Aldo’s, Fralos, Bar 301, George’s Keep, Ruth's Chris, Uniko, and Piatti.
Where to play
Pop in for a tennis lesson or a clinic at the Dominion Country Club, or enjoy the fresh air at Frederich Park or on Eisenhower Trail nearby.
Where to live
Built in 2007, 15 Esquire is a magnificent Dominion estate with five bedrooms and its own waterfall cascading into the backyard pool and spa (where there's also a full outdoor kitchen).
The materials are all top-notch, with travertine and walnut flooring, exotic stones and granites, mahogany millwork, custom ceiling details, upgraded light fixtures, and plaster-finished walls. It features predominantly single-story living, with the spacious guest bedrooms, large closets and a home theater with stadium seating and observatory all upstairs.
A chef’s kitchen is outfitted with professional-grade stainless steel appliances, custom solid-wood cabinetry, and a large granite island. The luxurious primary suite boasts a spa-like bathroom with natural lighting that comes flooding in through the atrium.
"The home can be purchased with or without the adjacent property, 8 Villers St. Paul, which has an indoor gymnasium and a resort-style pool with a grotto, water slide, and lazy river," notes Rivera.
