Who’d Have Thought We’d be Touting Outdoor Features This Late in October?

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.

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.

Despite Being Within City Limits, These Properties Offer Wide-Open Spaces

When you think of an urban setting, wide-open space doesn’t typically come to mind. Urban communities are densely populated with proximity to dining, retail, and recreation. Often times, the term “work-live-play” defines these neighborhoods because residents live near their place of employment, greenbelts, and cultural institutions such as museums or performance venues. (For example, think of the way Uptown and Downtown are master-planned.) Most of the time, the homes don’t feature expansive parcels. But in real estate, there are exceptions to every rule.

Tucked away in some of the city’s most prestigious urban neighborhoods are homes situated on multi-acre parcels, providing a study in contrast. Here are a few luxury homes that feature plenty of room to roam outdoors.


The home at 3828 Turtle Creek Drive sits on 2.17 acres of landscaped grounds that run along the banks of Turtle Creek. This 1920s Mediterranean home still has its original tile work, and features amenities such as radiant heated floors, terrace with wood-burning fireplace, gym, pool and loggia, and outdoor entertaining space with covered patios.



Four acres in Old Preston Hollow is a rare find. 9246 Sunnybrook Lane features a 12,000-square-foot main house and a 4,000-square-foot second house, two guest houses, child’s play house, tennis court, towering trees, and beautifully landscaped grounds.



Located on 2.34 acres in Bluffview Estates is 5139 Seneca Drive, a 16,000-square-foot French chateau that features a 30-foot entrance rotunda, custom elevator, wine tasting room, theater, fitness room, billiards room, loggia, and infinity pool.



The contemporary estate at 4130 Cochran Chapel Road sits on 3.38 acres of with mature trees and winding creeks. The home was built with steel and glass to complement its natural setting. The backyard area features an infinity pool that’s visible from the living areas.
