Sotheby's International Realty - Dallas, TX

On a quiet lane off the beaten track in beautiful Bluffview sits a lovely pier and beam cottage built in 1939. A small house (1280 sq. ft) on a big lot (91 ft by 201 ft lot) is a rare find these daysI The designer owner brought chimney caps from London and along with Spanish tile standing seam metal added an impressive roof to the house. A friendly front porch greets and one enters into a beautiful book-lined room with fireplace that opens into another living space for sitting or dining. The galley kitchen runs across the back of the house and overlooks the wide back porch that runs the length of the house. The lovely master bedroom with French doors opening onto the porch transports to another time and place. A second bedroom can also be used as a study or library. This home is the perfect opportunity for a personal pied-a-terre with exquisite grounds and yet also affords great potential for expansion by adding footprint that goes up or out. The magnificent back porch functions as an outdoor room that stretches across the length of the house. It overlooks the curated grounds with tall trees and a perfect smooth green lawn for croquet and the occasional garden party. The romantic master bedroom opens onto the porch with French doors allowing for views of the gardens beyond.
