If you want to live the suburban lifestyle, but stay close to Dallas entertainment, restaurants and shopping, a home in Far North Dallas may be the answer, said an Allie Beth Allman & Associates spokesperson.
The neighborhoods north of LBJ Freeway offer a Dallas address, but children may attend Plano or Richardson schools.
Far North Dallas is close to Addison restaurants and shopping at the Galleria and provides access to employment centers.
Here are two homes recommended by Allie Beth Allman & Associates.
The Georgian-style residence with white columns at 6706 Gateridge Drive in Northwood Hills Estates is offered by Jill Redpath Noland. Remodeled and enlarged in 2008, the four-bedroom plan has room for family members to work or study, plus a gym and a media room. The kitchen provides wood flooring, stainless-steel double ovens, custom cabinetry and a built-in refrigerator/freezer.
The primary suite includes two bathrooms, four walk-in closets, a fireplace and a balcony. The backyard features a diving pool, patio, built-in grill and gazebo.
Listed by Eric Narosov, the contemporary-style, three-bedroom home at 7326 La Cosa Drive features museum finish walls and ceilings, light wood flooring and sleek cabinetry. The kitchen is equipped with quartz countertops, stainless-steel appliances, a breakfast bar and a built-in banquette. A barn-style sliding door opens to the primary suite, which includes a separate tub and shower and two vanities. The den has a high ceiling and a woodburning fireplace and overlooks the pool.
