Monday Morning Millionaire: Looking For Privacy? Find it in Arlington (Seriously!)

Share News:

Arlington is buzzing, y’all. Marketed as ground zero for North Texas sports, the biggest of the mid-cities could eventually force us to change from D/FW to D/A/FW.

OK, maybe not exactly. Still, it’s a great location for people who want access to both Dallas and Fort Worth but don’t want to sacrifice shopping and amenities (yes, I’m looking at you, Grand Prairie).

For those who love the location, the proximity to the Rangers Ballpark (and Cowboys Stadium, if you’re into that sort of thing), but still prefer to have some privacy, this home is a home run.

On more than one and a half acres with a private lake, the almost 9,500-square-foot home at 701 Sunrise Court is more like a compound. There are six bedrooms, five full baths and two half baths, a guest house and maid’s quarters, and a pool house, too. If you think that all that space and privacy will cost so much the only house you’ll end up in is the poor house, you’re wrong. This home is priced to move at $1.195 million.

There are tons of high-end finishes with this home, including the eye-catching wood floors. The pattern and style is just gorgeous, and with the simple, clean white walls in the home, the hardwoods become show-stoppers.

The master suite is spacious, and the other bedrooms are sizable — spacious, even — which is what you’d expect in a home this large.

 

I think one of the best features of the house is the wide rear deck, shrouded by cypress trees, that overlooks the private lake. It’s peaceful, serene, and straight out of a Folger’s commercial. It just makes you want to relax, right? Ahhhhhhhh …

    Seriously, this house is orgasmic! And just under $1.2 goes to show you why Dallas/Fort Worth housing is literally the envy of the nation. And that is exactly what I hear everywhere I go! The other thing about Arlington — slightly lower taxes than Big D, I hear. As for Grand Prairie, talk about a city that is re-inventing itself: have you been to the police station there? Most beautiful architecture I have seen in a civic building. (I had to go to pick up an accident report, honest.) Still lots of construction, but when I-30 and 161 are all finished, this place is going to take off. Then this weekend my daughter took our guests to the new Paragon Retail Outlet Mall and they said it was first rate — yipee! Now I no longer have to drive to San Marcus!
