Hilltop Perch in Forney Offers Dallas Skyline Views

Not in my wildest dreams would I have thought that from a hilltop in Forney you could get sweeping views of the downtown Dallas skyline. But that’s why the road is called Dalview, and it’s why this High Caliber Home of the Week has a turret from which you can spy our signature skyline at night. 

“The name ‘Dalview’ came from the views of downtown Dallas, which is crazy, but it’s true,” says listing agent Don Neilson, who says the Forney estate at 103 Dalview Road is exceptionally spacious and private and offers a 32 minute commute to the urban core, making it a perfect High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans

Note the rolling library ladder next to the front door. It offers access to the small balcony above.

Lovers of traditional design will appreciate the well-maintained interiors of 103 Dalview Road, a 5,516-square-foot, five-bedroom, four-bath brick home inside Dalview Estates. There are two master suites — one downstairs and an enormous upstairs master — a library, music room, formal living and dining rooms, plenty of outdoor living space, and a six-car garage on a one-acre lot that backs up to a peaceful, tree-lined creek.

Inside, there are old-world touches that up the luxury factor, such as tons of polished stone and carved millwork, French doors, and wrought iron accents. “There is a lot of heavy wood, but it’s all so solid,” Neilson said. “It’s exceptionally well built.” 

That quality in craftsmanship and materials is reflected in the price for this 2002 build — $899,000. 

Where else can you find a grand piano and a full church organ in a home?

The cozy library niche is a wonderful detail and great storage.

A two-sided stone fireplace brings warmth to the living room and breakfast area.

Though there’s a lot to love about the kitchen — stainless steel appliances and a good-sized breakfast nook — some may think it’s a bit on the cozy side. Some paint and opening up the peninsula bar could help things feel larger. 
You know what’s the opposite of “cozy”? The second-story master suite. Neilson says the room, which has space for a two-sided gas fireplace and two living areas, clocks in at 61 by 24 feet. “It’s is a really incredible space,” he said. And the master bath is no slouch, either. “It has all the bells and whistles.”

The master bath sports a steam shower, soaking tub, oversized vanity, coffee bar, and a gigantic closet.

The double-sided fireplace brings warmth to both the bedroom and bathroom in this epic master suite.

If that’s not quite enough space, Neilson says there’s an unfinished third floor that already has heating and A/C. It just needs your ideas. Consider it a cool media room should you move your family out to this stunning Forney estate!
