It may have started out as a 215-acre dairy farm nestled next to Bachman Creek, but Bluffview is now home to many of the most beautiful and architecturally distinct homes in Dallas. With rolling hills, 50 ft. cliffs, winding streets and lot sizes that range from .25-acre parcels to multi-acre estates, the area’s highly desirable topography has attracted premier architects such as Charles Dilbeck and O’Neil Ford, who designed homes that harmonize with the picturesque surroundings.

Close to Dallas’ top private schools, within minutes of world class shopping at NorthPark Center and near major business centers, Bluffview is a pastoral respite in a vibrant community. These, and other beautiful homes, can be viewed at briggsfreeman.com.

Defined Living Spaces

Patterned Floors     

Whether it’s continuing a room’s monochromatic theme or adding an unexpected pop, take advice from the experts…don’t be afraid to play with pattern. Geometric tiled floors are known to make a serious statement.
