Weekend Open House: 5625 Netherland Court

When the owner of this house decided to build on this quiet cul de sac he hired two of Dallas' best - Bob Thompson as Builder and Elby Martin as Architect - to design a home that merges Tuscan Mediterranean and Santa Barbara Style Architectures.  This Nearly 10,000 square foot home sits on over half an acre of perfectly manicured and lush landscape.  Five large bedrooms, most with on suite balconies, all have beautifully designed on-suite bathrooms and generous closet space.  The kitchen is every chef's dream and I can envision many fun family moments around its massive island.  Three state of the art ovens, two large refrigerators, and a perfectly appointed gas stove top allow ample ability to feed a large family a gourmet meal or to cook a fabulous array of food for party guests while they enjoy cocktails around the adjacent wet bar and wine room.  A massive exercise room is the perfect place to burn off some energy, and an upstairs game room, media room, and billiards room offers the perfect spot to entertain kids.  A formal library downstairs also doubles as the perfect man cave.  A spacious study is  a great place to knock out some work from a home office. The outdoor summer kitchen is a perfect place to barbecue while hanging out by the pool in the summer, or, cozy up on the couch to watch your favorite show on a crisp winter day.  The heated floors and fireplace will keep you warm! Enjoy all of these photos - I'm sure you won't miss the attention to every immaculate detail this house has to offer.

The best invention to hit the breakfast table since sliced bread

This is a great addition to your morning coffee ritual or an afternoon pick me up.  The Nespresso Aeroccino Plus Automatic Milk Frother is one of my favorite things I have purchased for my kitchen in a long time.  It heats and foams the milk with one push of a button and is a cinch to clean.  If you want an iced latte you skip the heat option.  Never knew it was possible to make such a nice foamy latte at home!

It retails for $99.00 and is sold at Williams Sonoma and Bed Bath and Beyond you can also  Buy it here along with a Espresso Maker from target.

Help Fight Cancer at The Young Texans Against Cancer Bubbly Q

I am really looking forward to the Bubbly Q this year.  Troy and I went last year and had a blast.  The food was amazing and the silent auction items were pretty great.  We got Jack a dog bed that we can't get him out of.  This year I am looking forward to eating food from Nobu and Five Sixty and mingling with the fun crowd that attends.  I hear that tickets are almost sold out, so if you want to go, get yours fast!  You can purchase your tickets here.

Hip Pocket: 2717 N Henderson Dallas TX

Imagine buying a home that allows you to walk out your front door (and courtyard) and have only steps to go to some of Dallas' most delicious restaurants and popular bars.  Yes, thats right, this home is located at 2717 N Henderson Avenue just steps from Hibiscus, Fireside PiesVictor Tangos and The Old Monk.  The current owners built this place in 2006 and did not leave one corner untouched when it came to finish-outs and details.  The walled in courtyard surrounding the front yard and well appointed backyard provide privacy outside from the exciting hustle and bustle around. 

This 2974 square foot, 3 bedroom, 2 and a half bathroom, single family attached home can be yours for $599,000.
