Driving up to this lovely lot in Northeast Dallas, it is easy to forget where you are. In Dallas proper, we're used to small lots with more house and less land. That's just not the case at 9562 Ash Creek Dr., as this hidden retreat allows for both a contemporary new build and lots of wide-open spaces.
It is listed for $899,000 with Keith Callahan of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate.
The house, built in 2005, has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,970 square feet of functional living space that is both open concept yet compartmentalized when necessary. The natural light via the floor-to-ceiling windows means an instant connection with the outdoors. The family room flows right into the gourmet kitchen.
The home also is positioned in a way that every space can appreciate the park-like backyard (but more on that later).
The appealing floorplan includes a guest bedroom or study downstairs that has a full bathroom. The large master suite features his-and-her closets, a Japanese soaking tub, and separate vanities. Two additional bedrooms are connected by a Jack and Jill bathroom.
Visitors get a warm welcome in a unique way. A streaming water feature starts outside the front door, crosses the width of the inside, and continues outside through the back door.
This zen pad is practically an extension of the Dallas Arboretum and White Rock Lake — both of which are just a short bike ride or drive.
The best part of this property is the fact that it is set on almost an acre, and the backyard is delightful. Should you go for a swim in your sparkling pool or relax in the bubbling spa? And as if the home couldn't get any more ideal, it backs up to a spring-fed creek.
This oasis is Callahan's favorite part of the property.
“As you walk through the front door, one's eyes are immediately drawn through the large picture windows to the backyard,” Callahan says. “A gently sloping lawn leads to a recently added pool and spa with a generous patio for entertaining. Just beyond, there is a large cluster of oak trees before you arrive at the deck overlooking Ash Creek.”
