Right now, we know it’s next to impossible to get a pool installed quickly because the demand has never been higher. So naturally, homes with pools are hot, hot, hot listings. What about a White Rock home with a backyard that’ll make you feel like you’re in Playa year-round? This week’s Inwood Home of the Week is your ticket to backyard bliss.
With four bedrooms, three baths, and 2,965 square feet, this 1940-built home is a sprawling ranch style in a beautiful, country-like area of Casa Linda.
“Actually, I lived in this quadrant of Casa Linda for many, many years, and I just love how peaceful this part of town is,” says listing agent Jenny Capritta of Re/MAX DFW Associates.
As outstanding as the interior is — with two open living areas, two dining areas, massive kitchen, and a spacious owner’s suite — the prize is the backyard that takes full advantage of its 0.7-acre corner lot.
From the family room, step out onto the multi-tier wood deck that’s shaded by a mature, twin-trunked Oak tree. Why do I mention twin trunks? Because the “v” where they connect is as perfect a step for climbing as I’ve ever seen.
The backyard features a saltwater pool, spa, and five different patio spaces, as well as a covered breezeway that leads to the detached two-car garage.
Surrounded by palm trees, the saltwater pool offers a sundeck, spa, and umbrellaed bistro that’s built into the pool. Maybe I’m sheltered, but I hadn’t seen that before and now I want one.
Jenny Capritta of Re/MAX DFW Associates has listed 1441 El Campo Drive for $739,500. She’s hosting an open house slated Saturday, Oct. 10 from 1 to 3 p.m.
