Country Getaway Gives Dallasites Dreaming of Space a Place to Call Home

Wide open spaces just an hour from the heart of downtown.

Well, well, well. What do we have here? If it seems like the most charming country cabin on acreage that you’ve seen hit the market in a while, well then you would be correct. This listing at 201 Dowdy Road in Lowry Crossing has much more than just three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,578 square feet.

This 14-acre property consists of heavily treed property alongside a calming creek. There is a swimming pool for cooling off after a long day in the Texas sunshine and even a 2,400 square foot barn that has a workshop, storage galore, and a parking space. There is also a 1 bedroom, 1-bathroom apartment. Perhaps the perfect digs for a future property manager?

Inside the main home, the floorplan is surprisingly open and welcoming.  The vaulted plank ceiling with oak beams paired with the wood floors give the home its cozy charm and a stone fireplace is ever-present always inviting people to sit around it and stay for a while. The primary suite has two walls of windows for taking in the view and a dreamy antique tub. The home’s loft makes for a great home office if getting in the car to head back to Dallas for work is simply too unappealing. The wrap-around porch is always a popular spot for rocking the stress of the day away.

The coolest bonus of this property has to be the quaint cabin. The charming quarters has a kitchen and a full bathroom and is an absolutely ideal place to put the guests that come with you in search of a little rest and relaxation outside of the frantic shuffle that exists inside of the Dallas loop.
