It’s not often you find a two-owner home in Dallas, but that’s exactly what we have here at 9532 Alta Mira Drive. Originally built in 1941 with a generous add on in 2000, this home is a showstopper. It’s set on a corner lot, so you know that lawn is generous. The front yard seems to go on forever and the backyard has a pool that just won’t quit AND there’s still room for plenty of lush landscaping.
The current owners are the ones that did the remodel. They created their dream home and now it can be your dream, too.
Set in Casa Linda Estates, Alta Mira is in a wonderful pocket of East Dallas near Little Forest Hills and Forest Hills with all the amenities and proximity, but a slightly more palatable price tag. In fact, if this house was over there, it’d easily be listed over one million.
It’s a split floorplan with a super split — the primary bedroom is upstairs overlooking the pool. There’s a fireplace, too, plus a fabulous bathroom and cedar closets. And the curved staircase that leads you up? That’s called a turret, also known as a small tower. If the question is, “Does this house live like a castle?” The answer is most definitely.
On the other side of the home you’ll find the remaining three bedrooms making it the perfect design for older children or overnight guests that want a little extra privacy.
Speaking of guests, the current owners are pretty big in the theater scene and frequently opened their home to fundraisers. The three-car garage has sliding doors on the backside that open up to the pool to create a pretty impressive entertaining space.
In the kitchen, where everyone congregates during any get-together, there’s a massive built-in refrigerator and island with plenty of serving, eating, and mingling space.
One look at the furnishings and you know this is an art house. Keep it going with your own collection. Give Compass’ Michelle Hopson a called for a guided tour.
This four-bedroom, three-and-one half bath house lives large because it is large. With 3,655 square feet and over half an acre, 9532 Alta Mira is listed at $899,000.
