DALLAS, TX – An exquisite home in the coveted, historic Forest Hills neighborhood has hit the market for $1,695,000. The luxury, two-story home was built in 2018 and exudes an elegant, traditional style. It is located at 8239 Santa Clara Dr., at a walking distance from White Rock Lake and about six miles from downtown Dallas. The property is exclusively represented by Lee Lamont, an affiliated Realtor with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage and a Global Luxury Specialist.

Resting on nearly half an acre and surrounded by mature trees in the tradition of the neighborhood, the home boasts a large backyard with a built-in outdoor kitchen and a wood-burning fireplace. A charming, covered front porch, complete with a porch swing, is a distinct addition to the home’s curb appeal.

Additional and custom features of the property include:

  • Five bedrooms, four full bathrooms and one partial bathroom
  • 5,400 square feet of living space, wood floors throughout first floor
  • Built-in appliances in an open kitchen overlooking the family room
  • Separate study room, a media room and a crafts room
  • Wet bar with a built-in wine cooler
  • Attached, three-car garage

According to Lamont, “This is a remarkable home with a great value opportunity for the buyer seeking the big lots and spacious homes, so close to downtown Dallas. The reputation of this well-established neighborhood speaks for itself and we’re seeing an influx of people relocating not just from surrounding areas, but from out-of-state, as well.”

Due to its proximity to White Rock Lake, considered the ‘crown jewel’ of the Dallas park system, and its established history dating back to the 1920’s, Forest Hills is one of the most sought-after areas in Dallas. Residents can enjoy numerous outdoor and recreational activities, an unmatched tranquility enhanced by its striking trees and a closeness to the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens.
