4 Dallas Homes with Killer Pools You Can Buy Now

The state of your summer entertaining hangs in the balance.

I’m going to make this personal. As I begin to breathe thirty and my friends and I move out of the renting stage of our lives, the once ubiquitous apartment pools of my early twenties are suddenly dwindling. Where’s a girl with a mortgage to go when the temperatures start to rise?

See below. That’s where I would like to go. Someone I know and love (or am even just acquainted with) please purchase one of the following manses and invite me over. Thanks.

3619 Crescent Avenue

The Neighborhood: Highland Park
The Price: $8,695,000
The Pool: Points for palm trees. Points for a column-lined hot tub. Points for 2,3589 square feet of verandas. Points for the intense number of stairs that lead to the lagoon-like pool. Points on points on points.

*This property is going off the market for a while, but feel free to contact Doris Jacobs at 214-537-3399 for a private viewing.

4926 Deloache Avenue

The Neighborhood: Preston Hollow
The Price: $14,500,000
The Pool: At 4926 Deloache Avenue, it’s not about the size of your pool, but what you do with your pool. And when your pool has a connected hot tub, a cool shape, and sits adjacent to both a massive porch and a firepit, you’re really doing your best.

4612 Watauga Road

“Susan Baldwin, Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty”

The Neighborhood: Bluffview
The Price: $5,500,000
The Pool: Not all pools are created equal. Particularly when those pools are professionally landscaped by Harold Leidner and have the ability to make you believe in magic again.

40 Braewood Place

Vicki White, Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty

The Neighborhood: Bent Tree
The Price: $7,995,000
The Pool: This pool has more drama than my eighth grade class trip to Saint Louis (that year’s budget was tight). We’re talking negative-edge, trees-for-days drama with a tiny fire pit-equipped hot tub. Real Housewives bow down to this pool. It actually would freak me out a bit to be within the confines of this water structure, but I don’t care. I’d do it for the drama.
