What a way to start Valentine’s Day! Our Inwood Home of the Week is a Tealwood Square townhouse that is in the heart of everything, yet so secluded you’ll have all the tranquility you desire.

Builder Jim Williams completed this Tealwood Square townhouse at 8849 McCraw Drive in 1969. Williams is known not only for Tealwood Square, but also for his work in Caruth Homeplace and Briarwood.

So, where is Tealwood Square? It’s next door to Bluffview and about a minute from the Dallas North Tollway. It’s a private enclave of Devonshire.But you would be hard-pressed to find it without a Realtor. And that Realtor should be Dave Perry-Miller listing agent Tricia Weiner because, you guessed it, this Tealwood Square townhouse is her home!

“It’s so secluded people don’t know where it is,” Weiner said. “One of the things I’ve loved the most about living there is that it’s so tranquil and private. Those neighborhood qualities are hard to find in a bustling Metropolis like Dallas! And being on the creek, shrouded in the giant magnolias and live oaks, it’s like living in a tree house because all you see is green.”

1233 Spyglass Drive viewLast Thursday, I was treated to a reception at 3622 Edgewater in such a special Uptown location, and such a stunning home, I came home and started thinking about selling my own place.

Then I checked my fertility.

Now if you know me, I do this about three or four times a week — think about selling my own home, (not my fertility) – especially after paying property taxes, which I did last week. I thought I was very well behaved this year. Got on line, charged them,  did not break any windows this year, did not bore you with my cursing!

Jarrad BarnesBack to 3622 Edgewater, marketed by Jarrad Barnes and Tricia Weiner: this house is stunning and sexy as hell. I would not be surprised if a few agents who attended the par-tee end up preggers in a week or so. We were all in the master shower with our wine — well, it WAS hot — and we had six of us nestled in there quite comfortably. The shower is larger than the rooftop car wash shower at The Joule.

3622 Edgewater group showerThe contemporary architecture of this three-story townome has an incredibly high-end interior finish out with three bedrooms, 3 and a half baths, 4 outdoor areas and a stunning rooftop deck. I will be on the deck for the fourth of July. Giving you notice, whoever buys this home: I’ll squat for a day seize your home on July 4 for a party on that patio.

Walk in to a beautiful sleek garden and side yard with a bubbling spa and water wall. This floor has the oversized two-car garage, one bedroom and bath. Up you go to the main floor — sunken over- the -top kitchen, living room, power room and dining. Head up to floor three — oh, knees hurting? No problem, there is an elevator to all three floors and the rooftop. I felt not one pang of claustrophobia inside, either. The bedroom floor is home to a magnificent master bedroom with great downtown views, huge bathroom with car wash shower, mammoth closet space, fireplace. Another bedroom on this floor. Then you take the elevator up to the roof deck and take in the city of Dallas from a vantage point in Northern Hills that actually has hills, trees, and other real items of nature! More photos coming soon of this property and you will be drooling. I promise. 2800 square feet. Priced at $1,350,000. And I want it!
