11259 Leachman Cir-1-X3

There is something about the location of 11259 Leachman Circle that takes the temperature down a notch or two. The home is located on a leafy cul-de-sac off Northaven Road (near Inwood, need I say more?) that is so peaceful you can hear the crickets tapping their legs. And the home is CANOPIED by lush trees, soaring oaks. It’s a transitional ranch circa 1974 to which the whole world has been added. There is a glorious main kitchen, a catering kitchen, two master suites, storage galore, high ceilings, light, and one of the most beautiful bedrooms I have seen in eons.

In fact, I’m so excited I have to show you this room up front. See those panels? All storage!

And our bud Steve Brown says they are selling like “haute-cakes”, ha ha ha, but in reality the $3 to $4 million plus market is probably the slowest market segment in Dallas, unless you are talking tear downs.

And when it comes to $20 million plus, I mean, how many buyers are out there? Most people would prefer a nice $2 million home and a vacation home.

Five Dallas-area homes are now listed for sale at $20 million or more – the largest number of such elite properties to hit the market.

“You don’t see this many at once, and all of these houses are incredible,” said Dallas property agent Lisa Besserer with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.

Besserer is marketing a $20 million house on Strait Lane in North Dallas.
