You’ve seen this listing before, yes? Probably the most beautiful backyard in Dallas, if not in the top ten running. A stunning Mediterranean by Bob Thompson is a truly Santa Barbara style home built in 2001 on 1.29 lush Bluffview acres. Honestly, you may have to remind yourself every four minutes that you are not at The Dallas Arboretum. Inside those smooth stucco walls is a 7,863 square foot home with five bedrooms, three living areas and a five-car garage plus separate guest quarters, huge kitchen, breakfast area, great room, library, dining room, exercise room, and a master to end all master bedroom suites.
Get this: the master suite tops out at 27 x 22, the size of a decent apartment! We love the tray ceiling, too, which makes this room feel more Balmoral than Bluffview. And if you are keeping count on the bathrooms (like I do, never can have too many), there are four full baths and two powder rooms.
Then, of course, there is the backyard which you will never want to leave: patterned stone and grass lawn surrounding the European style pool, spa and loggia. Built in 2000, the home is large but doth not crowd the 1.3-acre lot at all.
This home has graced our pages before, first with Susie and Pete Ryan at Briggs Freeman who had it listed for $6,395,000. Then Dave Perry-Miller and Ralph Randall took over, lowering the price to $5,785,000. Now Kari Schlegel Kloewer’s team is selling, with cute Jenica Williamson at the helm and an amazing price of $4,999,000. That’s almost a million less, or $635.96 for every square foot. There is no way Jose this house could be replicated at that price.
You know what they say: third time’s the charm.
