In a neighborhood bustling with new construction at the $2-million range, we’ve found an impressive home that is move-in ready in the heart of Dallas, near Preston Road and Forest Lane. And this one is such a huge bargain, I feel like I have to whisper.
This beauty at 5931 Boca Raton Dr. is listed by Julie Provenzano with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate for — SHHHHH — $1.25 million. That is it. The home is priced significantly lower than a recent appraisal and offers incredible value in a sought after neighborhood.
And get this: the owners have invested more than $100,000 in outdoor living spaces, creating an ideal oasis for entertaining. The interior is a dream, with six bedrooms, four bathrooms, four living areas, two dining areas, an office, media room, and 5,108 square feet on two stories, built in 2006.

“This gorgeous home in Inwood Road Estates has been meticulously maintained and beautifully updated throughout,” said Provenzano. “This house is situated within a stone’s throw of the top private schools in Dallas and offers the best of the area in terms of shopping and dining. It’s ideally located with easy access to major travel arteries for a quick commute anywhere in DFW.”
I can attest to that! With so much to offer, this turn-key property won’t last long! I’d love to give you a tour…
Everything about this house is built to impress — I love the curb appeal created by thoughtful landscaping, mature trees everywhere, and a winding driveway. Some buyers might be wary of the location close to Preston Road, but as the current owners point out, it’s been a wonderful retreat for their family.
We have invested well over a $100,000 in the exterior to create an outdoor ambiance and further insulate from any traffic noise on Preston. We have a triple barrier from the road in the form of trees, an eight-foot board-on-board fence, and another layer of trees and landscaping inside the lot line. In the backyard, we have over 800 square feet of covered living space, complete with an outdoor kitchen and top-of-the-line A/V equipment where we’ve enjoyed entertaining guests both formally and casually.
The soaring entryway boasts a grand staircase and clean lines of sight to the formal dining room, formal living room, and into the kitchen and second living room. This home has seamless flow. Windows everywhere make for a bright interior with great views of that custom landscaping from almost every room. Hand-scraped hardwood floors flow throughout almost all of these shared areas and are super easy to care for.
The second living area is really the heart of the home, sharing a space with the open kitchen (perfect if you’ve got kids and want to keep an eye on them while you prepare dinner). The two-story ceiling and windows just as high give this room a real presence, and the space is anchored by a large, carved fireplace and enormous chandelier that fits the room perfectly (that light, the lighting in formals and chandeliers in living room, dining room, and breakfast room are all new).
Look at those clean lines! The kitchen is remodeled with updates to the cabinetry, new Royal Danby marble countertops, backsplash, fixtures, knobs, lighting and custom stainless vent hood as well as newer appliances, including a built-in espresso machine and commercial-grade gas range. A breakfast bar provides additional seating options and makes for a great conversation space in this gourmet kitchen. And can we talk about storage? So much of it! I might paint those cabinets white. Hmmm.
The master is a luxurious suite with architectural interest in the room and an updated bathroom. That area now offers Carrera Marble countertops, new custom closet cabinetry, fixtures, lighting, and chandeliers. There is also a huge frameless glass shower, big soaker tub, dual sinks, and lots of space for storage.
Upstairs, there are four bedrooms and a large game room with custom built-ins and window treatments. A separate media room has doubled as a playroom for this family for years. The laundry and mud rooms are also updated with better storage and options.
Exterior highlights include extensive landscaping in the front and back yards with high-end outdoor lighting, an outdoor kitchen of all-natural stone, 800 square feet of covered living and dining space with a wired TV and stereo, new natural stone beds, and perennial landscaping with irrigation systems throughout. Can you say outdoor living? No pool but plenty of room. This space is serene and quiet with lots of grassy green space for kids or four-legged children to play.
