4707 Wildwood Road
In the heart of wooded Bluffview Estates sits the very special and timeless 4707 Wildwood Road. Life literally slows down as one pulls into this exclusive yet low- key address.
Noted Dallas architect Wilson Fuqua designed this quintessential 5,400 square foot Bluffview home and positioned it perfectly on the spectacular 0.859-acre site. A wide sweeping front area with gardens and a crushed stone motor court slopes gently toward a dry creek overlooked by the private guesthouse. The wide private front porch that spans the front of the house is the perfect place to sit with coffee and the news to watch the parade of dogs walking their owners down shady scenic Wildwood.
A modern and fresh aesthetic with a subtle Hill Country influence combines limestone, stucco and standing seam metal roof with crisp clean lines, walls of windows and airy high ceilings. Numerous decks and porches bring the outside in from all areas of the house. An open floor plan includes a lovely library/living room, the timeless light-filled Bulthaup kitchen, and dining room with deck. Stepping into the dramatic main living area with its impressive stone fireplace flanked by curving windows, one is captivated by its elegant yet easy style. Entertaining on a large or small scale is what this home was born to do.
The first-floor master suite has cozy kiva type fireplaces, the second on the master deck overlooking the Robert Bellamy designed pool with expansive yard and guest cottage beyond. The master bath retreat is a joy with Ann Sacks Calacatta white marble floors, limestone countertops, jetted tub, separate closets, skylights and adjoins a window lined room with French doors that is a glorious office, exercise room, and retreat rolled into one.
Upstairs on the second level are three generous bedrooms (each with its own bath and walk-in closet) and a large den/family room with a private balcony overlooking the spectacular wooded and landscaped yard beyond. A craft room/office and lots of storage are useful amenities.
The guest cottage with veranda that everyone will want to stay in adds a fifth bedroom to the mix. The private wooded lot is incomparable even for Bluffview and the interior Wildwood address is as good as it gets…anywhere!
