Cool Contemporary Near White Rock Lake Has a Sweet Primary Suite

Funky Forest Hills is at it again with another great listing.

WOW! Would you look at the walls of windows?

If that wasn’t your initial reaction to this impressive contemporary renovation, then we are going to need to stop and check for a pulse. This fabulous Forest Hills home at 8463 Santa Clara Drive features three bedrooms and three bathrooms with 2,994 square feet of living space after a recent expansion. And this renovation was done the right way. We are talking Pella windows and an HD composition roof.

Our favorite two areas of the home are the modern kitchen and the private primary suite. The kitchen has Viking and Sub-Zero stainless steel appliances, Ann Sacks tile, and Basaltina countertops. The primary suite has a sexy concrete floor and a secondary seating setup that makes the space feel part room/part adults-only parlor. There is also a large bath that instantly reminds us of the sultry subterranean spa at The Joule.

Going down the list of lust-worthy perks, this house checks so many boxes. Elevated corner lot? Check. Another separate primary? Check. All updated bathrooms? Check. Landscape lighting? Check. Den and study? Check. Check. There isn’t a whole lot to complain about with this reimagined 1951 gem.

The location of this home is just about perfect with quick access to White Rock Lake, The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden, and downtown, despite feeling miles and miles away. Because sometimes you want to be close and sometimes you cannot get farther away from the hustle and bustle of it all. This property allows you to have your pick. Shall we get in the car and go or is it time to sit a spell on the screened-in porch and gaze out at the gorgeous backyard? The choice COULD be yours.
