Serene and Secluded Watering Hole

On the edge of this property in Dallas, practically hidden by perennial beds and lush plants, you'll find a truly serene outdoor space. While a rock waterfall and koi pond offer some ambient sound for the pool, a cabana with a fireplace makes for a comfortable place to sit and share a drink with friends.
