I Want This Dallas House, All 3,800 Square Feet of It, $899K

The new slogan for the city of Dallas is "Live large. Think big." That's exactly what I want to do at this house at 6652 Lakeshore Drive in Dallas.

The 3,812-square-foot home in the Country Club Estates subdivision is huge, as everything in Texas should be, and has a large rooms and an open floor plan to make stretching out easy.
The master bedroom measures 20-by-13 feet, making it the largest bedroom in the house. The master bedroom is so big that it includes a sitting room with a fireplace surrounded by built-in cabinets. It's like having another room to relax in next to the bedroom. The master bath has double sinks, and a separate tub and shower. The upstairs has four bedrooms and three baths.

Beyond the sheer size of the home, built in 2005, it was designed with a layout that gives it an open feel. Spacious formal rooms and a study are near the front entrance, and the family room has windows and a fireplace flanked by a built-in entertainment cabinet and window seat. Every room has plenty of space to stretch out, and each room flows seamlessly for small gatherings or large parties.

As if the house wasn't big enough, there's also room to grow. A large landing at the top of the stairs could be used for a computer room or play area, and unfinished space over the garage could be turned into an office or guest room.

The Country Club Estates neighborhood offers plenty of area to stretch out, too. The house is about three blocks from the Lakewood Country Club, and White Rock Lake, a 1,015-acre city lake, is close to the east.

Similar homes to this one have sold for $963,000, making it a slight deal.
