This time of year, you probably expected to be cozied up inside, focused on wicked game of checkers or a tournament at the foosball table. But North Texas weather is a funny thing, and the cold temperatures that usually chase summer away seem to be taking their sweet time getting here. So now that you have a few more weeks to enjoy the picnic-like temperatures, here are four homes made for outdoor fun and games.
4612 Isabella Lane
4612 Isabella Lane is a six-bedroom estate situated on 1.026 acres. The outdoor area features a full-sized sport court, a batting cage, a zipline, a covered patio with fireplace, a heated saltwater pool, and a spa with fountains. You may never want to go back inside!
Located in Old Preston Hollow, 9520 Hathaway Street is a seven-bedroom, 10-bath estate situated on 1.44-acres of heavily treed and beautifully landscaped grounds. The backyard is practically a resort: there’s a pool, a cabana with a full kitchen and bath, an outdoor kitchen with a fireplace, and a full-size sport court made for skateboarding and basketball.
Golf, anyone? If so, check out the home at 10433 Strait Lane, which sits on a 1-acre lot. Here, you’ll find lush private grounds with a pool, private quarters, and a beautiful putting green set up in the middle of an expansive grassy area.
9246 Sunnybrook Lane is a Preston Hollow estate on 2.68 acres, which is plenty of space for a full-sized lighted tennis court … and a pool … and towering trees … and a child’s play house. The home boasts a 12,000-square-foot main house, as well as a guest house.
