FYI: The Surrey Circle listing is back on the market at a lower price… Don’t miss her $3,995,000 listing on Broken Arrow either.

Take a footbridge over a creek under towering trees and have tea in a pretty gazebo – and never leave your own property. Such is the outdoor setting that surrounds 5347 Surrey Circle in Bluffview, a stately home on almost a half-acre of lush grounds with cascading terraces. Briggs-Freeman’s Lisa Besserer is listing the three-bedroom, 31/2-bath property with full quarters (including a bedroom and living room) for $2,249,000. It will be held open from 2 to 4 p.m. today.
“This exquisite home is situated in one of the most beautiful settings in all of Dallas,” Besserer says, adding that French doors open from every living area to outdoor terraces that overlook the nature scene.
Georgian architecture influences the home’s red brick façade, cast stone archways and detailing. Large entertainment areas with high ceilings and walls of windows are hallmarks, as is the intricate millwork throughout. In the living room, double-height ceilings are accentuated by tall, paned windows overlooking the front grounds. Bookcases flank an elegant fireplace.
In the grand dining room, throw open the two sets of French doors onto a balcony with a cast-stone balustrade overlooking the creek. Extending the creek side of the home, this balcony invites seated dinner parties al fresco.
The downstairs master also enjoys creek views through multiple floor-to-ceiling windows. Sophisticated finishes are found in the marble master bath as well as the gourmet kitchen, with its granite surfaces and brick flooring. A keeping room off the kitchen boasts a large fireplace.
