Splurge: Park-Like Perfection In Far North Dallas With A Pool
Don’t pass over this splurge! It is filled with charm and perfect for both homebodies and entertainers alike. That’s because this five-bedroom, three-full-and-one-half-bathroom offers more than meets the eye.
We’re talking beautiful Spanish tiles, an exposed brick fireplace, modern beams, and an oversized living that brings the outdoors in. The architecture is for those who like their home to be one-of-a-kind. And this one in Far North Dallas has it in spades!
First off, it comes nestled in a canopy of mature trees creating one show-stopping retreat. Secondly, it has the backyard oasis of your dreams, which offers a park-like setting and a swimming pool to boot!
There is a sleek white-cabinet-clad kitchen, and a secluded master with a clawfoot tub. But you’ll love the game room just as much, which can easily convert to fifth bedroom.
Aside from the idyllic location and layout, the current owners put in some work too. This means new carpet, fresh paint, and an abundance of well-kept space to live, work, and play. What are you waiting for? We second what the listing says: “Look, love, buy!”

Plantation shutters add to the appeal, as do the oversized windows, and tranquil master suite.
