House For Sale
Run your own in-house tiki bar at this Dallas area home for sale
You'd never guess from the outside, but this stately Colleyville house for sale is embedded with tiki touches, including its own tiki bar — perfect for your mai-tai needs.
Built in 1985, the house at 4300 Eaton Cir. is a custom home, three stories tall, on a cul de sac lot, with loads of space and fabulous outdoor amenities.
It has 3,821 square feet, with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths on a .6-acre lot that includes multiple living and dining spaces with extra tall ceilings.
Located west of DFW Airport and west of 121, this is a relatively older neighborhood of Colleyville, with well-kept homes and mature trees. The facade is brick with an imposing circular turret front and center, inlaid with leaded glass windows. The entryway is spacious, and features gorgeous slate tile floors.
But an installation in the entryway gives a winking hint of what's to come: A narrow Polynesian-style hall table sits nestled under a Maori tiki boat carving, eight feet wide, hanging from the ceiling.
The kitchen boasts stainless steel Dacor appliances, with gas and convection double oven, a built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator, and a Miele dishwasher. An expansive island in the center of the kitchen has a six-burner gas cooktop.
A large family room comes with a decorative fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows for maximum views.
The master bedroom is a suite with sitting area and patio access. It adjoins a luxurious spa bath, with separate vanities, expansive shower, and a custom closet.
The backyard feels like a resort, with landscaped grounds, mature trees, a walk path, pond, Trex deck, pool, spa, and outdoor cabana fully appointed with kitchen, refrigerator, built-in gas grill, farm sink, granite counter, moon, flood, security lights.
The home also has an attached two-car garage with double doors.
With that out of the way, let's get to to the tiki. As Candy's Dirt notes, this house is really unique.
Behind that brick facade you'll find teak, stone, and bamboo for days.
The house comes with its own dedicated tiki bar, done in hues of celery green and aqua. It's clad in bamboo rods, with an inlaid mosaic tile bar top, refrigerated wine closet, and mini-fridge for cold drinks and ice.
That island in the kitchen is also clad in bamboo. Ceilings are fabricated from teak slats, a tiki trademark.
The bathroom off the master suite has a tub at the center, encased in a polished stone base. But it's the shower that's the real trip. Big enough for two, maybe three, it has a large round porthole-style window and is embedded with stones that not only line the interior but also inch out along the exterior wall, like a climbing vine.
A sprawling covered back porch overlooks a stone patio and yard, with casually overgrown vegetation that creates a jungle vibe. There's a gorgeous outdoor pool with an adjoining thatched roof pavilion and cabana.
They're asking $699,000, and there's also an HOA.
