How To Get Out of Town Without Buying a Plane Ticket: “O”pen House Extraordinaire This Weekend

Share News:

I’m in Park City, Utah, checking out some amazing second home bargains for and yes, testing the slopes. (Big snowfall tonight!) But if you are in Dallas this weekend, you can get out of town without ever paying the tolltag fee at DFW. Just check out the amazing Open House at 8545 Midway: a home on Midway that is really NOT on Midway. It is so beautiful I have the Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing about it. You know how Midway meanders down towards Lovers Lane in Bluffview and then becomes, well, Bluffview (a.k.a.the real Midway?) This Midway is a little off-shoot of Midway that becomes Capps and really should be called Little Midway Enclave. It’s a private, quiet lane and holds some amazing homes, including this one that is seriously orgasmic! If you think I’m full of it, just check out the July/August issue of Verandah Magazine where the home was featured. Quietly commanding, 8545 is more than 9000 square feet on a delicious 1.26 hilly acre lot, a modernist interpretation of a Spanish colonial home designed with meticulous, delicious attention to detail. You simply must see the kitchen with morning room and second catering kitchen. In fact, this home has inspired me to bring you a comprehensive weekly house story on that will go beyond the listing info and dirt. Whenever I find a knock-out house on the market, I’m going to spend a little more time on it, interview the designers and builders. It is my mantra that every home has a story, some just take longer to tell!

Check out 8545 Midway (that is not on Midway) this Sunday from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
