Bent Tree contemporary

I want this house. I know all we writers at CandysDirt.com could say that a few times a week, but this home at 5414 Harbor Town Drive in Bent Tree is so crush-worthy that I’m fighting the urge to stop writing and start moving.  A classic contemporary nestled on a half-acre lot, this 4,921-square-foot home at the Bent Tree Country Club 13th tee box overlooks rolling terrain, a creek, and a waterfall. This Harbor Town home is five bedrooms and five baths for $795,000.

Wood inlay walls and flooring, two-story ceilings, and a floor-to-ceiling fireplace wow you as you walk in and survey the large step-down living room. Hidden away is a giant 160 x 90-inch ceiling to floor movie screen with state of the art theater projector. (more…)

You know we’re suckers for open houses! They’re great ways to get a feel for how a home lives, and they can be eye opening when it comes to discovering new neighborhoods and enclaves. Though we keep hearing about a slow-down in the market, we’re still getting invites in all directions to tour some of the best homes in Dallas and beyond. We couldn’t help but share a very special open house tour featuring none other than North Dallas’ Preston Trails/Bent Tree neighborhoods. 

“This is a great area with a tremendous convenient location, often overlooked,” says Jacqui Bloomquist, who is representing the gorgeous four-bedroom, four-bathroom home at 5818 Preston Fairways Drive during the Sept. 1 open house tour. “Most of these are zero-lot-line homes in terrific neighborhoods — Bent Tree Royal, Preston Trails Fairways, and Cambridge Place at Preston Trails!”
