Happy Friday, everyone! You may recognize this week’s Fresh Listing Friday from our post earlier this week or from our Facebook page, but we felt you deserved a more in depth look at this marvel. This home, located in Bluffview at 8545 Midway Rd., in Dallas is absolutely stunning.
Imagine a home with all the space and tranquility of a private estate but located in the heart of the city. It sits on 1.26 acres, has five bedrooms, five baths, two half-baths, a three-car garage, and 9,383 square feet of living space. With a price tag of $5.5 million, you know there is no shortage of amenities and features in this home. Let’s take a look!
You’re welcomed to the home through a circle driveway that leads you to an opening in a privacy wall. This wall surrounds the front of the home, which offers a gorgeous courtyard with a fountain and highlights the home’s unique iron door that swivels on its middle. A two-story entrance bordered by a curving staircase is the perfect place to take in the formal living room.
This room has three sets of French doors, gorgeous views of the seemingly-endless backyard, hand scraped hardwood flooring, an the first of the homes five stunning fireplaces. This fireplace, like some of the others in the home, is a two-way fireplace, that provides heat and ambiance to this room and the adjoining formal dining room. Before we go too far, we want to give you a visual of the layout. To the left of the living room is a wet bar, an in-home theater complete with a projector screen and three TV’s, and also the main access to the first floor master suite. To the right, the formal dining room as three more sets of French doors, with the same stunning views and flooring.
To the right of the dining room are the home’s kitchen and main living an dining areas. The kitchen is incredible. The island is oversized, perfect for entertaining, and the countertop is made up of square marble samples, making this island one of the most unique we’ve seen. There are two refrigerators, a professional-grade stovetop and oven, a beautiful copper hood, and an entire separate space designated as the “caterer’s kitchen.” Of course, this room is filled with light like the rest of the home and has more of the great backyard views. It is also open to the casual dining room and living area. A wine room, a study, and two baths, and a large laundry/mudroom also make up the first floor.
Back down to the left of the home, we have the private master suite retreat. This room is immaculately done, with it’s own living room, another two-way fireplace, enormous dual closets with soaring ceilings, and a bathroom that would make even the most avid spa-goer jealous. It has a freestanding solid stone tub, a separate rain shower with detailed tile work, dual vanities and sinks, and access to the backyard. The remaining bedrooms and baths are upstairs, along with a spacious game room.
Let’s go outside now to this backyard oasis. There’s a pool with an infinity edge, a large spa, a huge yard, a sport court, covered and open patio space, incredible terraced landscaping, a large garden, and even a chicken coop. Let’s just say that if you’ve ever had a dream about the ideal place to host a backyard summer pool party and grill out, this is it, hands down.
Plain and simple, this home has it all. If you’ve got the finances to make this one yours, we’d suggest you hurry because gems like this don’t come on the market often!
