Splurge: Magnificent Modern Feels Like a Tropical Oasis For $699K

For your own gated slice of paradise, check out this magnificent modern. It offers three-bedrooms, three-and-half-bathrooms and a whopping 3,169 square feet smack dab in the center of the Medical Distric. But what really has us smitten is the lushly landscaped front yard! Stunning woodwork and a glamorous Elecrolux kitchen also catches our eye. And who doesn’t love a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace? Upstairs an elegant master awaits. Plus, there’s plenty of room to entertain! Outdoors, a Trex deck and pergola are calling our name. Anyone else craving an umbrella drink? Tropical trees, a generous lawn, and bonus study with sitting area and balcony – need I say more?

Speaking of hot, our steal is in one of the hottest Dallas hoods, just one mile from the tollway. It offers upscale luxury living in the Medical District too, but with amenities that can’t be beaten. We are talking community pool, clubhouse, and a dog park! The interiors are sleek with hand-selected, designer touches throughout. And get an eyeful of that upgraded stainless steel kitchen! Light and bright with a huge island that’s perfect for entertaining. Three-bedrooms and three-and-half bathrooms make up the interior.
