12780 Hilltop Front

This place was built to be shown off. If you need convincing of this fact, I point you to the unbelievable second-floor bar and billiard at 12780 Hilltop in Argyle. It’s like Boston’s famous Bull and Finch Pub (Cheers, if you watch the TV show) without the weird smell and surly barmaids.

Seriously, every photo of this home is better than the last. I couldn’t stop myself! So yes, this house is beautiful and has every single thing you’d want to throw the most amazing parties.12780 Basement Wine Cellar

This incredible home, marketed by none other than Vanessa Andrews of Hoffman International, this Napa-inspired chateau is on the market for $11 million. The property includes 50 sandy loam acres in the Denton County suburb of Argyle. Just 20 minutes away from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, this estate is both secluded and accessible, thanks to the oak trees that buffer the main house from the rest of the world.

12780 Hilltop Private Lake

The estate includes a private lake, a wonderful barn, an arena, and a detached garage that has room enough for all your motors with a second floor conference area. Designed by architect John Hall, this amazing estate was completed in 2009 by Kindred-Pecchi builders. The main house totals 12,205 square feet, which includes the guest apartment that is big enough to host an overnight guest or two quite comfortably.

I love all of the warm materials used on this home. The exterior features a Samaca slate roof and brown Ozark dry-stack stone with gorgeous climbing vines. Inside you’ll find Venetian plaster, soft wood trim, tin tile ceiling in the “man cave,” and beautiful honey-colored hardwood floors.

The backyard is just as amazing, with an infinity-edge saltwater pool with views of the private lake, the pastures, and beyond. Come summer, I’m sure this area gets mighty crowded. There’s plenty of room to entertain guests, too, considering the oversized patio and enclosed loggia.

And if you own horses, this property has both an amazing barn and arena. I love how this estate has brought the outdoors in and the comforts of indoors to the outside. What do you love most about this incredible home?

Arlington is buzzing, y’all. Marketed as ground zero for North Texas sports, the biggest of the mid-cities could eventually force us to change from D/FW to D/A/FW.

OK, maybe not exactly. Still, it’s a great location for people who want access to both Dallas and Fort Worth but don’t want to sacrifice shopping and amenities (yes, I’m looking at you, Grand Prairie).

For those who love the location, the proximity to the Rangers Ballpark (and Cowboys Stadium, if you’re into that sort of thing), but still prefer to have some privacy, this home is a home run.

On more than one and a half acres with a private lake, the almost 9,500-square-foot home at 701 Sunrise Court is more like a compound. There are six bedrooms, five full baths and two half baths, a guest house and maid’s quarters, and a pool house, too. If you think that all that space and privacy will cost so much the only house you’ll end up in is the poor house, you’re wrong. This home is priced to move at $1.195 million.

There are tons of high-end finishes with this home, including the eye-catching wood floors. The pattern and style is just gorgeous, and with the simple, clean white walls in the home, the hardwoods become show-stoppers.

The master suite is spacious, and the other bedrooms are sizable — spacious, even — which is what you’d expect in a home this large.

 

I think one of the best features of the house is the wide rear deck, shrouded by cypress trees, that overlooks the private lake. It’s peaceful, serene, and straight out of a Folger’s commercial. It just makes you want to relax, right? Ahhhhhhhh …
