I have long wanted to start a series on the private homes of Dallas real estate agents. Let’s consider this the first post! This is the private home of Briggs Freeman’s Missy Woehr, a dear friend. When she’s not selling sleek condos at Museum Tower, this is where Missy lives with her husband, Gus, also a licensed agent. I think Missy has probably sold every unit at the Cascada.
This is an elegant three bedroom, three and two half bath townhouse built in 2003. With 4166 square feet, this 3-story home is spacious, secure and has a study that could be a fourth bedroom in case you have a houseful. The floor plan is one of the best I’ve seen, and there is an elevator BUT! There is also a guest room on the first floor. I remember Missy telling me about this last January when my mother-in-law was visiting, my husband was recuperating from a knee replacement, and I needed a first floor guest room. 3380 Blackburn is a home that has been upgraded and planned to the T with top grade materials, comfort and ease of living in mind.
It also feels more like a single family home than most town homes. The plentiful windows peer out over a plethora of trees, making this home appear to be floating over a green backyard. There are a couple of side yards with pet grass.
Let me make one thing perfectly clear: pet grass is the best invention since sliced bread. If I could, I would have a whole yard of pet grass. Doesn’t require water or fertilizer. Keeps the pups clean during monsoon season. How do you think I survived the past rainy month in my life with guest pets? Pet grass!
I think the pictures can do more justice to this home than my jabbering, but suffice it to say this is one I would snatch up in a heartbeat if I were in the market. Get your checkbooks ready. Location — check: Cascada is on north side of Blackburn just before Katy Trail, off Turtle Creek Boulevard. Square footage — perfection. Each bedroom has an en suite bath and is just what you need — a bedroom, not the Taj Mahal. But the formal and informal spaces in this home are beyond beautiful, from the Carrera marble in the decked-out kitchen to the gold ceiling in the living. Missy, I am in love with your house… and I bet listing agent Ilene Christ (Missy’s partner at Museum Tower) has it under contract by next week! Listed for $1,549,000,
