This Tealwood Square Townhouse is Love at First Sight

What a way to start Valentine’s Day! Our Inwood Home of the Week is a Tealwood Square townhouse that is in the heart of everything, yet so secluded you’ll have all the tranquility you desire.

Builder Jim Williams completed this Tealwood Square townhouse at 8849 McCraw Drive in 1969. Williams is known not only for Tealwood Square, but also for his work in Caruth Homeplace and Briarwood.

So, where is Tealwood Square? It’s next door to Bluffview and about a minute from the Dallas North Tollway. It’s a private enclave of Devonshire.But you would be hard-pressed to find it without a Realtor. And that Realtor should be Dave Perry-Miller listing agent Tricia Weiner because, you guessed it, this Tealwood Square townhouse is her home!

“It’s so secluded people don’t know where it is,” Weiner said. “One of the things I’ve loved the most about living there is that it’s so tranquil and private. Those neighborhood qualities are hard to find in a bustling Metropolis like Dallas! And being on the creek, shrouded in the giant magnolias and live oaks, it’s like living in a tree house because all you see is green.”

Impeccable design, excellent security, and low maintenance are all hallmarks of a Williams home. This Tealwood Square townhouse showcases a design well ahead of the times with an open floor plan perfect for easy entertaining, floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the creek, and generously proportioned rooms. At 3,859 square feet with three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a study, it’s hard to believe it was built in 1969. But therein lies the advantage — character. We see a lot of builders today imitating the elements found in this era, like the continuation of outdoor brick to the interior, and the double-sided fireplace. By the way, those quality parquet floors are completely cool again.

Weiner lucked out because when she found this Tealwood Square townhome several years ago, it had been owned by an interior designer who not only made updates that count, but also paid homage to the era with some killer wallpaper in two of the bathrooms and great tile in the kitchen.

There are automatic blinds on all of the windows.

A gas grill is set into a steel countertop and the yard is all artificial turf! Your dogs will love it!

Wiener has the home listed for $1.395 million. Just remember what I always say: If you can purchase a house that’s made a builder, architect, or Realtor happy, you know you’re getting a wonderful home. Weiner is only the third owner of this Tealwood Square townhome, and that alone speaks to the quality of the property.
