Welcome back to Laps of Luxury. Summer is here, and we’re spotlighting the prettiest pools in North Texas. Each week, join us to tour on-the-market properties with beautiful backyards.
Today’s fabulous pool is tucked inside an exclusive gated neighborhood in Westlake called Quail Hollow. Here, sprawling mansions sit on sizeable lots, offering the best of both worlds: a suburban-style camaraderie with neighbors, but with just enough distance to maintain a sense of seclusion.
The custom home at 1724 Placid Oaks Lane was completed last fall and boasts nearly 9,000 square feet of living space. We love its thoughtful finishes, from the many windows with crisp black iron trim to the statement-making lighting, both suspended from the ceiling and tucked under the cabinets.
With five bedrooms, five full baths, an oversized white and gold kitchen, a glass-encased wine cellar, and several rooms built specifically for entertaining, this home is ready to welcome weekend guests and dinner parties alike.
The standout aspect of this home, however, is its outdoor living area. Amenities include a covered kitchen and dining space, multiple seating areas, a fire pit, and a TV for game days.
The heated in-ground pool wraps around this outdoor space, its angular design making the most of every square foot of the backyard. It features partially submerged loungers, a bright blue horseshoe-shaped spa, and dramatic underwater lighting. While swimming, guests can enjoy panoramic views of the Westlake sky.
