Rather Than Book a Santa Fe Getaway, Come Home to a Bluffview Compound

Handmade is hot! Ravioli from scratch, throw pillows from Etsy, paintings from Texas artists – they all add character to a home. Well, imagine a home with handmade touches everywhere you look!

“This home has a ‘soul’ that reflects tremendous creativity,” says the owner of 8604 Labron Avenue. “It has a unique ‘je ne sais quoi’ that will catch your breath and charm your guests.”

And she knows her stuff; she even knows how to pronounce “je ne sais quoi,” because she is from the Château wine country in the center of France.

All the walls have custom treatments by the artist/homeowner. It’s a blend of cultural influences, but you might say there’s a Santa Fe feel — earth-tone colors, Saltillo tiles, rustic woods.

“The emphasis is on warmth, aesthetics, and a feeling of serenity and surprise that invites you to feel welcome and challenged to bring your own touch,” says the homeowner.

For example, she used vintage bank security boxes as shelf brackets for the built-in office in the family room — after finding a gold chain inside one of the abandoned treasures!

Occupying a third of an acre in Bluffview, the property feels like a compound, with a main house and a separate guest house, plus room for a pool.

The neighborhood is the best part. Soft hills, large trees, winding roads — not suburban Dallas at all. You could come home for the weekend, instead of booking a Santa Fe getaway.

Want to add onto the three-bedroom, three-bath house? Or put your original creation on this large lot with a big backyard and guest house? Anything’s possible.
