If Bluffview is good enough for Yu Darvish, well, then it’s good enough for a whole lot of contemporary-loving peeps! That’s why the wonderful builders at LRO Residential Custom Builders chose Bluffview and a treed, woodsy half acre lot at 4341 Taos to build a pristine model of contemporary amazement. Really, it’s one of the few contemporary spec homes on the market in this area. Just completed,  this four-to- five bedroom, four full plus powder bath home has what every buyer craves: both a master & guest suite on the first floor.

In fact, if you provided a list of what today’s buyer wants in a home, 4341 Taos is like the check-off list:

Large entertainment area: the first floor entertaining area with full bar is adjacent to the outdoor living and pool, which opens and expands your space for parties.

Plenty of garage space for collectible cars: an oversized 3-car garage allows for multiple vehicle storage.

Less square footage, but important square footage:  just 5,145 square feet of living space, media room, private outdoor master courtyard, exercise room, and additional outdoor living square footage.

Smooth stone, clean-lined exterior finishes incorporating brick, stucco and honed Leuders stone with a standing seam metal roof and large Pella clad windows trimmed in black. There  is a striking 10-foot-tall hand forged iron and glass front door that takes you right into the  open-concept kitchen, dining and family areas. Buyers no longer want to mess around with formals. They want to pay for the spaces they use, period. Walls of glass frame the landscaped gardens, bringing the outdoors, in.

The first-floor master bedroom suite packs in every home buyer’s desire, these days, for the ultimate master retreat where you could almost live hermit-like for a few days.  An expansive room is outfitted with a personal coffee bar, and a private outdoor courtyard with an open air shower, Calistoga Ranch style. (Every home in Hawaii has an outdoor shower, they need to be requisite.) The master bathroom has double sinks, a Victoria & Albert soaking tub, backlit LED mirrors and an oversized shower for those days when it is too cold to be al fresco.


The multi-use media room: first floor private guest bedroom suite attached to a media/game room accented with reclaimed wood, plus a powder bath.  This can be an office, guest suite supreme or media room. The 3-car garage is connected to the home and versatile.

Upstairs, the second floor has an open loft, also perfect for a home office, art studio or added living space.  Here are two additional bedrooms and bathrooms, an exercise room, and a walk-in mechanical room that holds all security and entertainment technology equipment.

Now for the most important feature that every homeowner alive, breathing and spending money wants today: an outdoor living area extraordinaire. There’s an outdoor kitchen, wood-burning fire-pit with built-in benches, ceiling fans and lighting, wiring for ceiling mounted heaters as well as television and music.  Off in the yard,  a contemporary-styled pool.

“Bluffview is THE location in Dallas for contemporary homes!”, says LRO principle Les Owens. “Large lots, great trees, and open winding streets (no curbs) create a relaxing feel.  The neighborhood is really a hub for joggers, walkers, bicycling and people enjoying a more natural- styled neighborhood, with full retail and restaurants a short jog away.”4341 Tao is located just north of Lovers Lane. Owens reminds us that vacation travel will soon be a breeze when the Wright Amendment disappears this fall, and opens up Love Field.
Freshly completed, hot on the market at $2,490.000. The good folks at Inwood Mortgage are mighty interested in helping you pony up some cheddar to finance this pup, as long as you share that shower. This contemporary masterpiece will be unveiled at an open house this Sunday, May 4th from 1-5 p.m. I plan to be there… so hope to see you!
