8312 Ridgelea IHOTW

This home at 8312 Ridgelea is almost a dream that is too good to be true. Give it an A-plus for location! You are talking about one of the hottest neighborhoods in town, Bluffview. This parcel of homes near Lovers Lane are all walkable to West Lovers Lane shops and super close to Love Field, so much that you could probably roll out of bed for a 6 a.m. flight at 4:30 a.m, make it to Love Field, and make that flight with a Starbucks in hand.

You get almost new construction: 8312 Ridgelea was built in 2006, which makes it practically brand new. I mean, it takes three years to get the kinks out of ANY new home, right? You get gleaming newer appliances plus open spaces in 4045 square feet on a juicy quarter acre lot. There is even a garage for three cars parked in tandem — how did they fit that on a .23 acre lot? Deftly. Actually, it’s more like a two car garage with gigantic storage.

I’d say you are getting a pretty dang good looking house for $765,000.

8312 Ridgelea foyerStatring with the foyer, it is open with a dramatic, sweeping staircase upstairs. Kind of Park Cities lite. Formals are downstairs: living, dining and kitchen/breakfast plus family room/study. Kitchen looks a little skimpy on the upper cabinets but no biggie to add. Bedrooms are all upstairs, including master and a knocked out, decked out master bath. (The people who own this home must never have taken any baths, that’s how pristine the bath tiles all are!)

Need more sound masking music? No problem, just crank up the whatchamacallit: the pool area is wired for sound with an upgraded system throughout, one that can be assessed from anywhere, like a smart phone.

So not only can you make it to Love Field lickety-split, you can be home and having a glass of wine on your patio as soon as you collect your baggage.

You will be so glad to know the good mortgage folks at Inwood Bank (up on Inwood at Lovers lane) are just up the street and more than happy to help you get into this house. Nothing like keeping it all in the neighborhood…
