Sport court, dog run, home theater, indoor gym, outdoor living: Amenities galore grace 5122 Horseshoe Trail, a Dallas home that is a retreat of its own. This custom Bluffview estate, a 2011 new build from Veranda Fine Homes and architect David L. Copenhaver at BSB Design, is a true inner city escape.
“Bluffview is one of the only neighborhoods where you’ll find rolling hills, curved streets and no sidewalks — in a good way,” says listing agent Summit Shah of The Associates Real Estate Brokerage by Robert Elliot. “It really feels like a hideaway in the middle of urban Dallas.”
It’s an especially good retreat for anyone who likes to entertain.
Home chefs will love the kitchen — think Wolf range and custom masonry vent hood, walk-in pantry with Elfa shelving, Electrolux refrigerator and double ovens — which overlooks a massive living room. Adjacent sits a wet bar with wine storage, ample cabinets and an under-counter fridge. Grill masters will dig the outdoor kitchen with built-in grill and prep sink, conveniently situated poolside. The formal dining room connects to an interior entry courtyard (complete with fireplace, water feature and seating area) via sliding glass doors — any hostess’ dream. A pool/spa with an ultraviolet system and a sport court complete the atmosphere of laid-back luxury.
This is a house that blends the indoors and the out like few others, creating a combined living experience that highlights the best of both worlds.
Downstairs, a master suite (with a recently renovated bath and his and her walk-in closets) has easy access to the backyard organic garden, a guest suite overlooks the pool and two studies offer space for adults and children to work. Upstairs are three additional bedrooms (plus bathrooms with pull out step stools for kids) and a playroom, as well as the home theater and indoor gym.
The high-tech property comes with a Control4 Smart Home Automation System, which allows the homeowner to control lighting, audio, temperature and security with a smartphone or one of three built-in touchpads located throughout the home; and a Tesla charging plug in the three-car garage.
Truly customized from top to bottom, 5122 Horseshoe Trail features custom ironwork on the main staircase and catwalk, hand-scraped white oak wood floors downstairs and coffered and cathedral ceilings throughout, not to mention Carrera marble and other high-end finishings.
The best in entertainment, family life and seclusion — all in the middle of the city. That is the definition of a rare find. Everyone wants their own retreat in the heart of it all. Very few actually ever find it.
5122 Horseshoe Trail is one such discovery. Getting these type of perks and built-in amenities typically would require custom building a dream home from scratch at great extra expense. This one comes ready made — in the heart of it all. That’s what you call a win-win.
