This five-bedroom colonial, built by the owners in 1983, pays homage to Dallas. Roam the 17,591-square-foot lot. Relax by one of the three fireplaces or scope out the neighborhood through one of two original bay windows. Freshen up in one of four bathrooms—including a master bath with Jacuzzi tub, shower, and bidet, and a “Jack & Jill” shared by two bedrooms. The old-school treadmill in the lower rec room, one of two such rooms in the house, is another reminder of the ’80s, when at-home fitness was all the rage.
