Rare Creekside Home in Coveted Pocket of UP Comes Available


If you’ve always wanted your own slice of heaven on THE creek in Dallas but thought it impossible, 6705 Golf Drive is a well-timed miracle. The four-bedroom, 3 bath, 2 half-bath, English stone beauty has many things going for it, not the least of which is pricing: $1,899,500.

Location is another. It’s one of only 28 lots in University Park backing up to Turtle Creek, and was built as a spec home in 1934.  Everything you could possibly need is a stone’s throw away – grocery and restaurants, UP Elementary, Holmes Aquatic Center, Goar Park with gazebo and soccer fields, and more. UP’s Town Hall is just down the street, too.

The current owners are the second set to occupy, and they’ve taken great care to preserve original architectural features, while updating amenities and functionality as needed.

Just off the entryway, past a half-bath, the eat-in kitchen is a delightful mix of traditional and modern, successfully juxtaposing seeded glass/alderwood cabinets with granite counters, a farmhouse sink with stainless steel appliances, and a rough-hewn support beam with whimsical light fixtures. Walk-in pantry and attached mudroom/home office with utility shower offer convenience and versatility for busy families.

The adjacent large dining area overlooks the secluded backyard and creek, and leads into a family room with stained glass windows and built-ins, and formal living room with leaded glass windows. Hand-scraped hardwoods run throughout the downstairs.

Upstairs, the added-on master features a walk-in closet, master bath with steam shower and heated floors, and balcony overlooking creek. It’s serviced by a full-size laundry across the hall, and has easy access to the three additional bedrooms, including one with loft and one with painted log cabin treatment.

Saving the best for last, there’s the backyard. An ipe wood deck with railing provides a great space to entertain along the lot’s feature attraction. Two-story former garage/multipurpose space has great potential for quarters or workshop.
