This North Dallas Contemporary Has an Upscale Basement With Built in Bottle Service

Because really, wine not?

Every now and then a home hits the market that stops you in your tracks. It’s that rare occasion when the architecture, lot, and landscaping all come together so beautifully, you are instantly transported to somewhere far from the hustle and bustle of Dallas as soon as you arrive. The soft contemporary at 11627 Forest Creek Place is one of those homes as it feels miles and miles away from a metropolitan city despite being just 12 miles from downtown.

Set amongst a plethora of picturesque trees, the home on a .354-acre lot expertly incorporates lush foliage and architectural stone, creating a warm welcome for family and friends alike. Walking into the home, you are greeted with 24-foot ceilings and cherry wood accents that manage to make you feel both inside and out at the same time. The open floor plan creates an ideal entertaining space for lounging in the living room or lingering in the impressive chef’s kitchen.

Craving a little privacy? Escape to the primary suite equipped with a sophisticated seating area, spa-like bathroom, and extensive closet space. Are we at an exclusive resort deep in the woods of California or are we deep in the heart of Texas? It’s truly hard to tell in the very best way.

But perhaps the most exceptional part of the home has to be the extra amenities added throughout the property. Most notably, the property boasts a rare basement stacked with a 4,500-bottle wine storage facility and tasting room. There is also a show-stopping outdoor screened-in living space and kitchen that no words can do justice. Think about the best screened-in porch you’ve ever seen and add about 10 feet to its ceiling. Truly spectacular. The ‘wow factor,’ of course, is amplified by a pool with perfectly planned landscaping to boot. Yep, it’s safe to say we’re smitten with this soft contemporary.
