We all have a one-upper friend who claims to have a backyard so big it takes four people on riding lawn mowers to tend to it. This five-bedroom, three-bathroom abode in Southlake says to that guy, “Hold my beer.”

We all have a one-upper friend who claims to have a backyard so big it takes four people on riding lawn mowers to tend to it. This five-bedroom, three-bathroom abode in Southlake says to that guy, “Hold my beer.” 

The home at 2702 N. Carroll Ave. recently underwent a custom remodel, but the real MVP is the backyard. 

Nope, this is the front yard above.

This is the backyard below.

I haven’t often featured the great outdoors as the cornerstone of a Rental of the Week, but there’s something special about this spot. 

The lot square footage is not included in the listing, but we did some digging to find that it’s 1.1 acres. The 1986-built home is 3,033 square feet in a sprawling ranch style.

Take a look outside and you’ll find an outdoor fireplace and fire pit, swimming pool, covered patio, cabana, and private outdoor space.

Beautiful On The Inside

We’ve all heard from our mothers that what really counts is what’s on the inside, and the Carroll Avenue home doesn’t disappoint here either. 

We know that Southlake is a hidden gem with lots of great homes and a thriving, growing community. The home sits in Tarrant County’s A-ranked Carroll ISD and has all kinds of family-friendly community events. But it’s the home where you’ll be spending most of your time. 

The flooring is new and shiny. 

“[The] stunning kitchen and huge master suite features rival those found in new million-dollar-plus homes,” said Realtor Mila Yakhnis of Keller Williams Realty Dallas Preston Road.

The kitchen is brand new with top-of-the-line appliances and a commercial-style gas range. A huge center island serves as the centerpiece, surrounded by detailed cabinetry and backsplash. 

The bathrooms feature designer-style tile and seamless glass showers. 

Living in Southlake

Southlake is absolutely booming. There are jobs, there is retail, there are restaurants. Tommy Tamale Market & Cafe, TruFire Kitchen and Bar, Malai Kitchen, and Truluck’s are right around the corner for a night out on the town.

The city’s No. 1 employer, global technology company Sabre Corp., and popular Southlake Town Square shopping center keep the economy thriving. 

Realtor Mila Yakhnis of Keller Williams Realty Dallas Preston Road is leasing 2702 N. Carroll Ave., Southlake, for $4,850 per month.
