Peek Into Bluffview: Magnificent Interiors, Serene Landscaping
November 12th, 2013 | by Michelle
Once a dairy farm, Bluffview was developed in the 1920s to make room for country-like estates. Today, these secluded homes are prized from their spacious lots on beautiful rolling terrain, all close within the city limits.
Bluffview draws its name from the nearby Bachman Creek, with its 50-foot chalk cliffs overlooking a table of greenbelt. Because of this stunning topography, some of Dallas’ most prominent families and architects have built homes here.
Here’s a look at some extraordinary homes for sale in Bluffivew.
Nestled among mature, towering trees in Bluffview Estates, 4418 Wildwood Road is a fabulous, soft-contemporary retreat. Originally built in 1991, this striking natural stone home was expanded and remodeled in early 2000 by the award-winning architectural firm Ogelsby-Greene. It features magnificent cathedral and vaulted ceilings throughout as well as grand living spaces that flow easily through the home, creating the ideal setting for showcasing art and entertaining. Listed for $1,599,00.
This home’s great room soars with a 14-foot ceiling, featuring a marble-clad Rumford fireplace, giving views of nature through steel windows and leading to front and rear terraces through wide pocket doors. A 5,000-volume library with floor-to-ceiling millwork provides a private and cozy setting. The kitchen features elm-clad Bulthaup cabinets with custom inserts and an oversized corner window. Cleverly hidden behind a wall of cabinetry is a working pantry with added equipment and china storage. A spacious den, highlighted by a limestone fireplace surrounded by bookcases, allows room for the breakfast table and is open to the kitchen. There is an easy transition to the pool and cabana by a wall of sliding glass doors through a mechanized screened terrace. Listed for $9,750,000.
