Home of the Week: Beautiful Remodel in Forest Hills

8547 Santa Clara Front

When you fall in love with a home, sometimes that love turns into a vision. And when you add to your family, but you’re still in love with your home, that turns into a renovation. I’m guessing that’s what happened with 8547 Santa Clara, a lovely Mediterranean remodel that was built in 1950 and completely gutted in 2005 to add a spacious second floor.

This is such a lovely home, and the sellers have done a bang-up job with the renovation, which features vaulted ceilings with exposed beams in the family room, a gorgeous kitchen with modern-feeling details, hand-scraped hardwoods throughout the first floor, and a huge master suite.

There are three living rooms, one of which is upstairs for the kids to enjoy their super-loud video games. And there’s a fabulous backyard with a pergola and fireplace, as well as a built-in grilling area.

It’s in Forest Hills, too, which puts you right next to White Rock Lake, the Dallas Arboretum, and lovely treed streets on which you can walk you dogs. It’s listed by Ebby Halliday Realtor Christopher Miller for $885,000.
