Nothing can compare to the serenity felt while relaxing in the sun room of this iconic original Bluffview Estates home. Wrapped on three sides with expanses of gorgeous steel windows, the room projects into the trees of this idyllic rising wooded corner lot. A quintessential landmark of this neighborhood known for its shady, winding lanes, the home was built in 1942, and it has been lovingly maintained and enhanced throughout the years.
This is a house of romance as well as glamor. The combination of cantilevered spaces, sleek lines and gleaming hardwoods exude a modernist Bauhaus/Art Moderne aesthetic---both timeless and contemporary, and most of all extraordinarily unique.
The crisp spaces maximize the dramatic natural backdrop. Each window is a picture frame for the viewer. Privacy prevails on all sides. Drive up the gravel driveway and enter past the lush natural plantings bordering the walkway. Through the heavy glass and steel front door the entrance hall is flanked by elegant formals. The sunny kitchen with AGA range opens to views of the grounds below through large windows. A steel and brass stair rail curves graciously to the next half story. Three bedrooms and baths are found there as well as a very spacious studio lined with built-ins, and complete with art storage and expansive work areas.
Enter the master suite through a gallery space at the end of the hall. Perched in the trees, it is a true retreat from which to observe all the flora and fauna in total privacy. The attached guest suite offers yet another getaway with its stone floors, vaulted ceilings, fireplace and views to the pool. A kitchenette and bathroom make this a superb retreat for work or entertaining. The backyard is terraced with multiple seating areas, stunning naturalized landscaping, and serene pool.
The drive-up to this unforgettable property lets visitors know they are off the grid of the city. Relaxation and pleasure begin even before you arrive. And amazingly one has the best of Dallas just minutes away from this centrally located oasis.
