Serene is how best to describe the lush backyard of the home at 7131 Greentree Lane in White Rock. Located in desirable Green Cove Estates, this four-bedroom, four-bath home with 4,400 square feet is situated on a 0.7 acre lot and listed by Lee Lamont of Coldwell Banker Lakewood/NE Dallas.
The homeowners built this backyard oasis as a respite and succeeded beautifully. To survey this venerable backyard oasis, bear with me while we do some visualization.
First step out onto the large covered patio, a vaulted brick and cedar haven complete with sliding screens, ceiling fans and dual-sided fireplace that’s shared with the living room. Standing at the entrance, you’ll hear the sound of wind chimes hanging from one of several cedar pavilions in this spacious backyard.
By then your ears will tune into the sound of water flowing over the landscape boulders into the pool and the bubbling water feature in the spa as you step out to your left.
To your right, an open grassy area for four-legged friends and landscape rock beds for easy maintenance. Here you’ll find a mature Agave plant, cacti, several Yuccas including the Texas Red Yucca, and other drought-tolerant perennials in this professionally-landscaped yard. A backdrop of mature trees from Rush Creek afford privacy with no rear neighbors to speak of.
The home, of course, is just as impressive — a sprawling one and half-story ranch style home built in 1956, deep-set on a maturely-landscaped yard. Most of the homes in Green Cove Estates have huge lots like this, an enviable piece of prime real estate at Mockingbird and Abrams near the west shore of White Rock Lake.
“Something this close to White Rock is very hard to find,” says listing agent Lee Lamont, who used to live in Green Cove Estates himself. The Coldwell Banker agent with the Lakewood/NE Dallas office specializes in Lakewood, M Streets, Forest Hills, and White Rock Lake.
Tack on the fact this Greentree Lane home is zoned for highly-rated Lakewood Elementary, it’s no wonder it went under contract before we could get this published. Listed for $1.395 million, this home is a prize considering we fawned over another Green Cove Estates home in 2013 with 500 less square feet and no pool. That one was priced at $1.089 million — seven years ago!
