Lake Highlands patio home

For this week’s Tuesday Two Hundred, we found this Lake Highlands patio home at 9646 Baseline Drive that’s a great lock-and-leave option for downsizers and frequent travelers, listed for $265,000 by Mitchell Sanders of Robert Elliott and Associates. (more…)

I have always been a fan of Glen Abbey, that gated, pristine collection of luxury estates developed on what was once the secluded ranch home of Clint Murchison Sr., a famed Texas oil magnate and philanthropist. Cowboys connection: Clint Murchison was the father of Dallas Cowboys co-founder Clint Murchison Jr. Glen Abbey was created on the land sold to former Dallas Mayor Robert Folsom by Lupe Murchison, widow of John Murchison, Clint Jr.’s brother and co-founder of the Dallas Cowboys. Originally 100 luxury lots, Hawkins-Welwood Homes built 60 of the 100 amazing homes there. 

That land, once part of the famed Murchison ranch, is now Glen Abbey. And Glen Abbey has a sister property right next door,  that retains all the luxury of those magnificent mansion spreads, but offer far more manageable home ownership options.

It’s called The Lawn at Glen Abbey. The Lawn at Glen Abbey began construction of homes in 2016. It may very well be my next forever home.
