Fresh Listing Friday: Spanish Style Meets Dallas Decor


Happy Friday! This week’s Fresh Listing Friday can be found nestled on a cul-de-sac street in Bluffview at 9029 Broken Arrow Lane. As if the wonderful location wasn’t good enough, it’s a stunning Spanish Revival house with all the designer decor you’d expect from a $2 million home in Dallas.

Fresh Listing Friday: Spanish Style Meets Dallas DecorIt has four bedrooms, four full baths, two half baths, an astounding 6,070 square feet of living space, and, as you can see, a three car-garage. The half-acre lot is surrounded by mature trees and backs up to a creek, all resulting in total privacy.

Fresh Listing Friday: Spanish Style Meets Dallas DecorYou enter the home through two elegant wood doors and immediately notice the floors, which you may recognize from an earlier post. These gorgeous hexagonal satillo tiles create the perfect canvas for the merger of Spanish-style and designer decor.

Fresh Listing Friday: Spanish Style Meets Dallas DecorAhead of the front door is a casual eating area and a little to the left are the main living room and an intricate tile staircase. The living room may be where you first notice the arched, iron windows that can be found throughout the home. This room also features a beautiful fireplace and a wall of dark wood built-ins.

Fresh Listing Friday: Spanish Style Meets Dallas DecorDown a few steps are the main dining room and the kitchen. The kitchen pays further homage to the home’s Spanish style. The cabinets are done in the same dark wood as the living room built-in and the walk-in pantry is a truly unique piece. On top of that the island and backsplash bring in punches of orange, and the travertine countertops and stainless-steel appliances pull it all together. A butler’s pantry, a wine grotto off the dining room, and a half bath add to the amazing amenities on this floor.
