As Dallasites have settled into spending more time at home and the hot, summer months approach, it’s only natural to long for a tranquil space to unwind. And you’ll find that backyard oasis on 6613 Villa Road near George Bush Turnpike and Preston Road.
Behind this red-brick traditional lies plenty of green space and a play area for the kids to run around, an outdoor kitchen and 1,200-square-foot flagstone-covered patio complete with a wood-burning fireplace, and a romantic koi pond outfitted with a delicate, wooden bridge. This impressive backyard was professionally designed and done by the seller, owner of Seamans Lawn and Landscaping.
“It really is an amazing yard,” says associated broker Sandra Breedlove. “The koi pond has turtles and fish, and there’s a huge, grassy play area.”
Fire up the gas grill on summer evenings and kick back with the mounted TV, rosé in hand. (And in winter, enjoy the commercial-grade electric patio heaters.)
The front yard features a Belgard paver driveway, and the roof and gutters were updated this year.
But as we all know, what’s on the inside counts, too. This Far North Dallas home built in 2000 features three beds, two and a half baths, and 2,546 square feet sitting on just over one-third of an acre.
“The house has really nice upgrades,” Breedlove says. “It was a family home, and they loved it.”
The light, bright interior includes fresh paint and LED lighting as well as travertine and handscraped wood flooring; granite countertops and a Thermador 8-burner, dual-fuel commercial range in the kitchen; and a master bath that includes a jetted tub and separate shower.
Take those first sips of coffee from comfort of the master suite’s sitting area, all while enjoying the private view of your lush backyard.
