Confession: I’ve been eyeballing this Midlothian stunner for a couple of weeks now, ever since the folks at Blackwood Homes began giving peeks of it on Facebook. I’m telling you — this Midlothian stunner is the answer to your Super Bowl party woes.

Tucked back on 3.75 acres and on a cul-de-sac, you can’t get more private than this four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home at 3290 Brads Way. Built in 2004, an investor purchased it and turned to Blackwood Homes to renovate it and polish it, and they’ve created a gem.

Blackwood Homes is almost your one-stop shop — they stage, they renovate, and they do post-construction and make ready cleanup, too, working with investors to bring that diamond in the rough they just purchased to market — and that includes this Midlothian home.

The Contemporary Farmhouse wows from the front door, with a living space that takes advantage of the tall ceilings and large windows. An oversized stone fireplace creates an instant focal point, but designer Jennifer Townes (who owns Blackwood with fellow designer Sarah Nowak and Paul Rodgers, working with senior architect Danny Nowak as well) didn’t just let the fireplace do all the heavy lifting when it came to drama, emphasizing the tall ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and wood beams with a grand spiral light fixture that brings the eye up, but doesn’t distract.

Example of a Bluffview property for sale

Word from Rogers Healy that he scored a $90,000 lease for two very happy Bluffview homeowners. One of the biggest names in rap and entourage booked the homes for Super Bowl weekend — four days. The homes were not for sale nor on any rental sites. Happy homeowners turning over the keys and heading straight to the bank…

This is a house for sale in the area. It’s $7,499,900. (Don’t choke.) Little Friday morning House Porn live from Dallas, Texas!

Update: the home pictured here is NOT the home leased out to the Super Bowl crowd, but a beautiful home for sale and an great example of what you get in Bluffview. For $7,499,900, of course…

Hey, I’m always in the wrong place at the wrong time, so what the heck? A lot of people are asking me how they can offer their home up for lease for Super Bowl.

Then this crossed my screen, and I thought, the heck with leasing the house. And should this cause a problem, this nice law firm is here to help!
