This Baby Got Back(yard for Days)

We are seriously smitten with this outdoor oasis.

Chances are if you know anything about East Dallas’s prestigious Forest Hills neighborhood you know that it is known for its large lots, gorgeous trees, and solid, classic homes. And if you are looking for a home in the area, chances are you enjoy the outdoors and all the ways that this location would allow you to enjoy it—White Rock Lake, Santa Fe Trail, and The Dallas Arboretum to name a few.

With that said, you would have to be a magician to have guessed the absolute stunning backyard that comes with this otherwise solid, but fairly understated home that is for sale on San Leandro. It’s seriously stunning. For starters, the terraced pool and infinity edged spa is something that is straight out of a movie. You know, the scenes where the uber-rich, popular kids in high school throw an epic rager when their parents are out of town? Yep, that kind of setup.

The good news? You are now an adult and don’t need those silly kids to access such a backyard. The awe factor continues with the fire pit and your pick of a couple different seating and dining areas. This area is special, but don’t take our word for it, go check it out on a stellar Dallas day when you can truly take in its epic potential.

And just because we don’t like to bury the lede and lead with the backyard, don’t think for a second that the house isn’t worthy of your attention too. Because it totally is. The space features four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and two living areas for your family to enjoy. There is also a renovated kitchen that opens to a casual family room.

Some of our favorite additional features of the home are the four covered parking spaces and the fact that it still has a formal living and dining room. The renovated master bedroom has been expanded to include a walk-in, custom closet system with a center island. All bathrooms are also updated so you don’t have to waste any time with any fixer upper projects. Because, you know, you’ll be busy blissing out in your backyard. Duh.
