When you think of high-end housing, does Garland come to mind? It should — this eastern DFW city offers some coveted gated communities with golf course views, larger lots, high-end finish-out, and custom details.
Garland is large, 57.1 square miles, and bordered by Dallas, Mesquite, Sunnyvale, Lake Ray Hubbard, Rowlett, Sachse, Murphy, and Richardson. It has a rich history that has helped shape it into a family-oriented, thriving city in North Texas with almost 237,000 people. It offers easy access to downtown Dallas via Interstate 30, two DART Blue line stations, and multiple buses.
Compared to many parts of DFW, you can buy a lot of house for your money in Garland. That’s why it pays to have a local expert by your side if you’re buying in the city, like the Realtors at Ebby Halliday. They know exactly what you can get in each neighborhood, what the competition is like, and how to best negotiate a sale.
I’ve found three stellar houses for sale in Garland that illustrate the higher-end properties there, all repped by Ebby. Let’s take a look!
CUSTOM ESTATE IN BRECKINRIDGE HILLS ON ALMOST HALF AN ACRE
Sitting on 0.49 acres in the highly desirable Hills of Breckinridge gated community in Garland, the custom estate at 22 Dunrobin sits across the street from 417-acre Breckinridge Park — this location cannot be beat. The house has four bedrooms, four full bathrooms, two half baths, four living areas, two dining areas, huge executive office, and 7,510 square feet on three levels. All this for under a million dollars!
The curb appeal feels stately with mature cypress trees and a brick facade, as well as a six-car garage and guest suite over the porte-cochère with a full bathroom and living area. The first level of this house offers multiple entertaining spaces with three fireplaces. A high-end kitchen includes granite countertops, to-the-ceiling cabinets in a rich wood, central island, breakfast bar, walk-in pantry, climate-controlled wine pantry, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range and built-in refrigerator. The second level has all the bedrooms, including an oversized master suite, and the third level is all flex space. In back, find a wonderfully large covered patio with fireplace and built-in grills with a fire pit. The yard is certainly large enough for a swimming pool, should the next owners want that.
This home is listed by the Jenkins Group with Ebby Halliday — 190 Richardson for $999,988. For more information or to schedule a private showing, call Carolyn Jenkins at 214-538-0779.
