The size and shape of a lot can greatly influence the look and feel of a home. Sometimes a sprawling home on a large lot is nothing short of nirvana, but to transplant that same home to one of the miniscule footprints in University Park? Well, that’s heresy. This gorgeous 1969 contemporary, which has clerestory windows and a low-pitched roof feels so much like a mid-century modern, but has the large rooms and languorous floorplan of the ranch homes for which this area of Preston Hollow is known. The lot is an astonishing 177 feet wide, and totals .57 of an acre. The setback is dramatic, and the landscaping and mature trees make it feel very private.
And the backyard? Well, it’s a great spot for families to run free without a care in the world. This is a home that is easy to fall in love with, and once you fall in love with a home, you don’t want to take any chances with financing.

This enormous, sprawling ranch at 11159 Russwood Circle is another fabulous listing from Allie Beth Allman Realtor Maribeth Peters. I swear, she always has the most amazing homes and clients, and this one doesn’t disappoint. While this property does maintain some of the original 1969 details — see the moulding and tray ceilings, stacked stone fireplace, and the mirrored dining room wall for evidence — the color palette and decor is contemporary and totally on point.
There are four bedrooms, four full and one half bath, a three-car garage, and more than 4,900 square feet inside this immense home. What really impressed me is that the master suite is as large as some of the homes in East Dallas, and clocks in at an impressive 1,288 square feet. Maribeth has this home listed for $1,179,000, which comes out just shy of $240 per square foot. That’s beyond decent for a treed lot in Preston Hollow!
There are hardwood floors throughout the shared spaces in this rambler, and as you’d expect, this home has a gorgeous kitchen that would be great for a foodie or a personal chef. There’s a six-burner Viking cooktop, a Bosch dishwasher, and gorgeous granite counters. I actually like this combination of subway tile, stone, wood, and classic Shaker-style cabinets with stainless steel appliances. The floors really warm the space up, and the peninsula is a great way to open the space without losing storage or workspace.
Other great updates include a recent roof, HVAC upgrades, newer windows, plus a grassy backyard and a pool with a safety fence. You’ll also adore the chic lighting upgrades, the vaulted ceiling in the master bedroom, the plantation shutters, and that enormous walk-in closet in the master suite that is totally ready for you to customize.
Truly, all this move in-ready home needs is a family and it’s good to go! What do you think about this beautiful, remodeled ranch in Russwood Acres?
Me? I think I’m in love! I better call Lisa Peters!
