Really, how many homes in Dallas have a bridge over a pool, leading you to the front door?
So yes, that cool little bridge makes quite an impact on visitors and buyers, and it also highlights the beautiful sunken elevation of the home. From the curb, you can only see a smidge of the rooftop of 9016 Vista Creek. But once you come down the stairs, the bridge, the pool, and the floor-to-ceiling living room windows with their warm light all give off an undeniable visual experience.
Inside, the home has some great spaces, but could use some updating. I also have to note that this four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath 1978 contemporary was listed originally at $499,000, but after a price drop to $474,500 it is now under option contract. The home, which rests inside the Dallas city limits but within Richardson ISD’s Moss Haven Elementary attendance area, has a four-car garage, two balconies, a fireplace, and includes more than 3,000 square feet of space.
A smart buyer would change out the traditional finishes in this home with more transitional or even contemporary finishes. This is a home that would do well with warm accent colors and fresh hardwood-look tile throughout. There is a wet bar, two dining areas and two living areas, and plenty of windows to let in natural light.
The master suite is on the first floor, and unfortunately, the listing photos didn’t provide a look at the bathroom. The description alludes to a garden tub and separate shower, as well as a custom walk-in closet. However, I’m always wary of listings that lack photos of bathrooms. What about you?
Upstairs there’s a great office space with a wonderful little balcony off of it. There are other bedrooms upstairs that access a separate balcony space. This gives the home a kind of wistful, treehouse feel that is both funky and a great way to maximize outdoor space and natural light.
So, what do you think of this cute California Contemporary in Northeast Dallas?
