When you think of an urban setting, wide-open space doesn’t typically come to mind. Urban communities are densely populated with proximity to dining, retail and recreation.
Often times, the phrase “work-live-play” defines these neighborhoods, because residents live near their place of employment, greenbelts, and cultural institutions such as museums or performance venues. (For example, think of the way Uptown and downtown are master-planned.) Most of the time, the homes don’t feature expansive parcels.
But in real estate, there are exceptions to every rule.
Tucked away in some of the city’s most prestigious urban neighborhoods are homes situated on multi-acre parcels, providing a study in contrast. Dave Perry-Miller & Associates present luxury homes that feature plenty of room to roam outdoors.
The home at 3828 Turtle Creek Dr. sits on 2.17 acres of landscaped grounds that run along the banks of Turtle Creek. This 1920s Mediterranean home still has its original tilework and features amenities such as radiant heated floors, terrace with wood-burning fireplace, gym, pool and loggia, and outdoor entertaining space with covered patios.
Four acres in Old Preston Hollow is a rare find. 9246 Sunnybrook Ln. boasts a 12,000-square-foot main house and 4,000-square-foot second house, two guest houses, child’s play house, tennis court, towering trees, and beautifully landscaped grounds.
Located on 2.34 acres in Bluffview Estates is 5139 Seneca Dr., a 16,000-square-foot French chateau that features a 30-foot entrance rotunda, custom elevator, wine tasting room, theater, fitness room, billiards room, loggia and infinity pool.
The contemporary estate at 4130 Cochran Chapel Rd. sits on 3.38 acres of with mature trees and winding creeks. The home was built with steel and glass to complement its natural setting. The backyard area features an infinity pool that’s visible from the living areas.
