Ahh beautiful Bluffview, a neighborhood prized for its hilly topography and 50-foot cliffs overlooking Bachman Creek. Known for stunning estate homes, topping sizable lots in a sophisticated, pastoral setting, Bluffview has become a hotspot for architects to showcase their talents.
This week we found the perfect Bluffview Splurge vs. Steal that puts the spotlight on this treasured Dallas neighborhood. Here we take a look at two Bluffview beauties, each with contemporary flair, and built to entertain, but with price points that are miles apart. Let’s compare and see what makes each home worth it.
Splurge: Masterful New Construction in Sought-After Bluffview Estates
Situated on a .89-acre-lot in the coveted Bluffview Estates enclave, rests 4502 Watauga Road, a new construction masterpiece that’s sleek, clean-lined, and screams modern luxury. The best part, there’s still time to pick remaining finishes and upgrades.
Pull up to the sweeping driveway and get lost in the home’s fresh and refined exterior marked by pops of green foliage. The brick and stucco facade is dipped in a classic white, met by elegant archways, black steel accented windows, and that sweeping drive we mentioned, it leads to a four-car collector’s garage.
Inside, soaring beamed and vaulted ceilings take center stage, with walls of French door windows illuminating a very special great room. From the statement-making fireplace, to the open, airy floor plan, this luxuriously appointed mansion, is just what today’s luxury buyers are looking for. And with five-bedrooms, five-full-and-one-half-bathrooms, plus 7,452-square-feet, there’s no shortage of fabulous spaces to entertain.
Just look at the impressive gourmet kitchen with commercial grade appliances, waterfall marble island, and gorgeous hardwood floors. Dine in style in and host holiday parties your guests will never forget. When its time to relax a tranquil main floor master retreat with spa-quality bath offers marble floors, dual vanities, freestanding tub, rain head steam shower, and custom walk-in closet. When can we move in?
Outside you’ll enjoy an expansive covered patio with giant archways framing a private secluded backyard, perfect for family gatherings and social events. A large formal dining area, huge versatile game room, home theatre, and library/study complete this exquisite Bluffview splurge.

Steal: Contemporary Gem With Claffey Custom Pool and Designer Upgrades
In contrast, our Bluffview Steal is similar in design and finish-out, but at a fraction of the price. Of course, you won’t have the sprawling lot or square footage that our Splurge provides, but we think the location, quality construction, and bonus – a fabulous backyard with sparkling pool – makes up for that.
Boasting an enviable Bluffview address, and offering what listing agent Elissa Sabel calls “Fantastic design, and resort level living,” we couldn’t be more impressed! The contemporary brick exterior includes ample windows met by a standing seam metal roof, surrounded by mature trees and lush landscaping.
Step through the front door to a jaw-dropping interior that is ultra-modern, with cable railing staircase, rich hardwood floors, and an effortless, contemporary floor plan. In the living area you’ll find custom built-in shelving, a modern fireplace, and walls of windows framing picturesque views of the outdoors. Tall ceilings, loads of natural light, and a clean-lined kitchen make this fully-equipped home a comparable abode to our Bluffview Splurge. We love the stunning kitchen with Thermador appliances, quartz countertops, and custom cabinets.
Plus, the master suite is to die for. With ample space to unwind, and an inviting spa-bath that is sheer perfection, why would you ever leave? Did we mention the master bath has heated floors? It comes complete with a deep soaking tub and glass walk-in shower adorned in a dusty snow colored river rock – just gorge! And as dreamy as this home is on the inside, it is the backyard with expansive covered patio and newly enhanced 2017 Claffey Custom pool that steals the show. A generous game room, not one but two dining areas, plus upgrades like Pella windows, and LED lighting make this one a keeper.
