SPECTACULAR MIDCENTURY IN PRESTON TRAILS ON 1 ACRE
Open house: Sunday, April 29, 2-4 p.m.
Get ready to be impressed by the Preston Trails midcentury-style house at 16326 Ashbourne Dr. in North Dallas. This one story masterpiece is set on over one heavily treed acre with six bedrooms, five full bathrooms, one half bath, three living areas, two dining areas, and 6,758 square feet, built in 1975.
Large open living spaces with beautiful angled ceilings and wood beams provide the prefect space for entertaining — that front living area is to die for! Walls of windows allow natural sunlight to filter into this inviting home with private views of the outdoor spaces. The house includes three wood-burning fireplaces and two lofts, as well as lots of thoughtful seating areas around the house. The kitchen offers granite countertops, a large central island, white cabinets, and double ovens, as well as a warming drawer. The large outdoor living areas overlook a swimming pool with two waterslides and a water feature. Other home features include a built-in wine cooler, multiple skylights, a smart home system, and access to a private pond and tennis courts as part of the homeowners’ association.
This Preston Trails home was listed April 25 by Gina Lester with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty for $1.6 million. Quarterly HOA dues are $700 and include maintenance of common areas and management fees.
UPDATED GREENLAND HILL TUDOR ON LANDSCAPED CORNER LOT
Open house: Sunday, April 29, 3:30-5 p.m.
We love Greenland Hills for so many reasons, and the house at 5203 Ridgedale Ave. is a great example of why. It’s a lovely 1930 Tudor on a landscaped corner lot with lots of beautiful updates inside and out. This home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,678 square feet on one story.
There are hardwood floors in the living room, dining room, kitchen, and bedrooms. The kitchen has been freshly painted and offers Carrera Marble countertops, white cabinets, an arabesque white tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances. A separate utility room is nearby. Nice size bedrooms include a master suite with an updated ensuite bath with Carrera Marble, dual sinks, and a frameless glass shower door, as well as a claw foot tub. The landscaped backyard also has a wood deck and beautiful stone patio.
This home was listed April 24 by Lindy Crain with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate for $579,000.
ONE-STORY NORTHWEST DALLAS HOME BUILT IN 2016
Open house: Saturday, April 28, 1-3 p.m.
The recently built, one story home at 3050 Kinkaid Dr. has open spaces and clean lines, perfect for a family with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,274 square feet on one story, built in 2016.
The spacious living room opens to a kitchen with granite counters, white cabinets, custom backsplash, walk-in pantry, and breakfast bar. The breakfast room is filled with light and there is also a covered patio overlooking the backyard for morning coffee. The master retreat is separated from the other bedrooms, offering privacy. The oversized master has room for a sitting area and the ensuite master bath has a walk-in closet. A split fourth bedroom would also make a great study.
This home was listed March 29 by MaryBeth Harrison with Keller Williams — Dallas Park Cities for $375,000.
