Take a look at the woodwork of this DeSoto home on 48 acres
Where will you find 48 acres of land within 20 minutes of downtown Dallas? Your search may lead you to DeSoto, where you will find a property with a main house, guest suite, barn, workshop, and horse room on the property. Inside the main house, you’ll find custom woodwork, bright living areas, and even a storybook-like library.
The house at 1000 Wintergreen Road in DeSoto was built in 1991 and has a stone exterior with porches on the first and second levels. From the porch you can admire the surrounding estate with its pond, horse room and barn. The house is 6,632 square feet.
Listing agent Linda Baker of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty said the property is unique for its size and the views from the house.
“It has a wraparound porch that wraps around almost the entire first floor, which is super unique,” Baker said.
The interior of the home is full of custom woodwork. The panels in the hall convey the classic design feel that is present in the rest of the house. In the formal living room, there is a wooden fireplace mantel, crown moldings and warm-toned woodwork around the windows and doors.
Lest you imagine a house full of dark rooms, note that the living areas have large windows that provide natural light and views of the property. A dining room is located near the formal living room and features a sparkling chandelier in the middle of the space.

In the kitchen, the cabinets have a similar wood color in warm tones. There is an island in the middle of the kitchen and a breakfast area to one side. Doors along one wall in the breakfast room provide access to the outside. The house has a large family room with exposed beams on the ceiling and a bar in one corner. The bar has a built-in wine cellar, storage space and counter seating.
Four bedrooms are located on the second level of the house, including the master suite. In the master suite there is a sitting area with a fireplace and doors that access the second story porch. Two of the remaining upstairs bedrooms share a bathroom, and the third shares a bathroom with the adjoining playroom, Baker said. The house library has built-in bookcases, a rolling ladder and a nearby desk. Baker compared the design to the library from the movie “Beauty and the Beast”.
The property has a separate guest suite with a bedroom, bathroom and living room. Although this space is a separate structure from the main house, a covered walkway connects it to the main part of the house.
The property includes a barn and a workshop. There is also an expansive patio off the main house.
The house is listed for $2,700,000. The address may also appear as 1000 W. Wintergreen Road in some searches.
