Sophistication Pours From This Northwood Hills-Valley View Show-Stopper

Share News:

This sophisticated ranch is as calming and welcoming as Sunday supper. And the upgrades extend outdoors too! In fact, you won’t believe what you get for the price in this Northwood Hills-Valley View looker.

The five-bedroom, two-full-and-one-half-bathroom gem was recently remodeled to exacting detail, turning an everyday ranch into a designer showplace. This is a Friday Four Hundred you can’t afford to miss!

Just ask listing agent Howie Reed with Compass, who tells us:

“It is a perfect home for people that like to host and entertain. The current seller is a sommelier and GM at a Dallas fine dining restaurant who has traveled the world and loves to cook, drink wine, and entertain. My wife and I were invited over one evening where he made dinner in the kitchen, which is the center of the home. While he cooked, we all gathered around the peninsula and felt like part of the process. He used fresh herbs and a few vegetables from the garden. Following dinner, we sat on the large backyard patio and enjoyed after-dinner drinks in the open space. “

This Northwood Hills-Valley View Ranch Never Looked So Good

If that doesn’t get you excited about this home, what will? At first, perhaps, the charming white brick exterior with cedar shutters and symmetric dormers will perk you up. Next, you might be taken by the towering trees and landscaped flowerbeds. But one step inside, and the contemporary fit and finish will blow you away!

A Northwood Hills-Valley View Reno Done Right, With Tranquil Upgrades Throughout

First off, we love the tranquil color palette throughout, offering a warm mix of wood and stone. In the kitchen, you’ll love the stainless steel appliances fit for a chef (literally) plus ample cabinets, and an easy flow into the breakfast area.

Show-Stopping Open-Concept Entertaining

This opens to a grand living space which is a show-stopper! The room is complemented by a traditional brick fireplace, modern cable stair rail, built-in bookcases, and double glass doors that bring the outside in. 

Howie says, “A great feature of the Far Hills home is the five bedrooms. This allows for the option of multiple flex spaces, such as a home gym and an office.” So much versatility, and we still can’t believe the price!

A Luxurious Master Retreat

You’ll also find several trendy barn doors throughout, met by shiny nickel hardware, and designer tiles. In the luxurious master suite, there is a spa-like bath to melt all your troubles away. It comes complete with a shower-bath-combo wrapped in sleek gray subway tiles, plus dual vanities and double sinks.

And that fifth bedroom doubles as a fabulous home office, as you can see here. But outside, to connect with nature, is where everyone wants to go. 

The Secluded Outdoor Oasis Steals The Show

That’s because it’s a private oasis with a custom-built gardening area for the green thumb and an expansive patio for the entertainer. String lights, a board-on-board fence, and lush landscaping make it a lovely retreat. And how charming are the vegetable and herb gardens! We can almost smell the fresh thyme and basil as we dream of lazy days cooking and sipping wine out on the patio.

Howie adds, “Many homes in the neighborhood have been improved in the last year, and I see a lot of value in this particular home at $450,000 because the remodel was executed so thoughtfully and the current owners put a lot of heart into the home.”

So much to love, so little time. Better hop on the phone with your agent and catch this beauty before it’s gone!
