These Performance Patio Homes Prove Low Maintenance and Luxurious Can Co-Exist

And that there are more than renovated ranches and sprawling mega mansions in Northwest Dallas.

Interested in making the switch to low maintenance living but not sure you are down to face Uptown, Knox Henderson or any of the other Dallas areas that are known for “hip” custom properties? The Court at Chapel Downs may be the answer to all of your patio home prayers. There are currently three completed homes (two are for sale) with the possibility of nine others via the adjacent buildable lots.

Location wise. You still can’t beat it. The community, designed by Scott Marek Architecture and built by Michael Turner of Classic Urban Homes, is near Midway Hollow off of Webb Chapel and just north of Walnut Hill. It’s still just minute from downtown, uptown, and Dallas Love Field airport and some of the top private schools in Dallas. It is also a prime location for avid bikers, walkers, and runners thanks to its proximity to the Northhaven Trail. Its family-focused and timeless location means everyone from millennials to senior citizens can fit in just perfectly.

As far as the two completed homes that are move in ready, both are offered at $749,000 and have three bedroom and 3.1 bathrooms, although the community has four customizable model plans that have three to four bedrooms and from 2,990-3,3630 square feet if you wanting to snag one of the lots and start your selections from scratch.

These homes are smart having achieved a top HERS energy rating. The properties feature 10 to 21-foot ceilings and oversized master suites with luxurious spa baths. The chef kitchens are outfitted with Bosch stainless appliances, frameless cabinets, quartz countertops, and designer lighting. There is even a secondary living space that is ideal for a game room or loft.

In terms of outdoor appeal, the private outdoor patios have room for whatever it is that you dream of when you picture your own personal outdoor oasis. Pool? You got it. Grassy play yard for kids and pets to frolic in the fabulous Fall weather? Done. Regardless of your outdoor dreams, you can count on the gated entry and garage parking for two.

Like what you are reading? Want to know more? Grab someone you like enough to want to live next to and head to The Court at Chapel Downs’s open house every Friday and Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm, and Sundays from 12 to 6 pm, and give these haute homes a look. Because the only thing better than snagging a beautiful new home is snagging one next to a friend. And with nine other lots available, you could technically start your own friend village. Just sayin’.
