About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6-8

Experience my modern home on 3 acres that feels away from the city hustle. Walk out my door and over the railroad tracks to take a stroll through eclectic Forest Hills/Little Forest Hills to see unique architecture and landscaping, and so, so many trees!

There are so many wonderful experiences within a very short driving distance. Two minutes from White Rock Lake & Arboretum, and only 5-10 minutes from East Dallas dining and drinking. A brief 6 minute tree-lined walk puts you at one of Dallas' top-rated pools for summer swim fun, and take a break while your heading there to feed carrots and apples to the horses along the way. You can also get to hotspots like Deep Ellum, Southside, or downtown in 10 minutes. It's the best centrally-located retreat in Dallas!

About Bobby Hoke

I'm a lifelong local musician who performs every weekend with one of my six bands. When not onstage, you'll likely find me in my studio, Orbaudio Recorder, working on original music for three bands, remixing, or film soundtracks.

Bobby Hoke purchased this house in 2005

Why Bobby Hoke chose Dallas

I've always loved East Dallas, and jumped at the opportunity to buy this undeveloped acreage in 2005. I built a modern home that would benefit from the secludedness of the property, with huge sliding glass doors that occupy the entire creek facade of the home. They allow for a spectacular view of trees and more trees! Yet you're always secure, with a large remote gate to totally isolate you from the street.

What makes this house unique

This is a very friendly neighborhood with a great bohemian feel. You also have access to a great olympic-sized pool & bar just a few hundred yards away. It's owned by a charity organization, so your money spent there will go to fifteen charities. You can also pet and feed horses just a short walk away. You may also get to catch a rehearsal going on in my studio, which is located on the property, but not within the home.

Stick to the donuts!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, neat and well appointed with interesting local art. Floor to ceiling windows along one side of the house surround you with natural light. Close to White Rock Lake, the Dallas Arboretum, and SMU. We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again if in the area. Bobby was very friendly and a great host. One side note - if you go to Hypnotic Donuts stick to the donuts! Thanks Bobby.

Property was nice and lots of nice artwork

  • 2 of 5

First off plan to tell the owner Bobby about everything from who will step a foot in the house to what the plans are because he will stop by from time to time. He has a studio in the back corner and not sure what he does there but it was a little intrusive givin that I was setting up a surprise proposal. Also anything that is even scratched on the property he will charge what he feels is right. I'm currently fighting to get 200$ back from a scratch on a wooden manniquen and another 100$ for more than 8 ppl stepping a foot in the house for a proposal event!! Not more than 8 stayed since we met up there for the proposal and went out he didn't care just charged extra for more people being in the house. To be honest it felt that the owner had all the power in the sense to charge what he felt was right before giving back my security deposit with his 300$ deductions. Overall property was nice but the whole experience kind of sucked. I don't want to bash too much but Just know what y'all are renting going forward. Also note I got charged extra for renting for one day. If that's the case please put that as a notice on the rents agreement. Just bad business

Fabulous Place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, daughter and granddaughter stayed at Bobby's place for 2 nights. The house itself is amazing and well designed, with ample space and beautifully appointed bathrooms. We only stayed for 2 nights, so didn't get a chance to explore the grounds and trails properly, but they looked to be a bonus part of any stay there. Bobby met us at the door and was very welcoming. I'd be happy to recommend his house to anyone.

Get weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls weekend here and it was absolutely fabulous! The art and the design of the house was so fun. We loved the big open windows. We started out the weekend swimming at the pool tight around the corner. It literally is walking distance. The people at the pool were nice and accommodating. The drinks are super cheap! We brought in catering so we wouldn't have to cook. I would recommend doing so. The fridge is stocked for the owners use. There's walking trails to take. We unfortunately didn't get around to walking them, but I would love to go back and take the adventure. One of my friends wants to rent it out for a get away for her and her hubby to spend a nice weekend away from the kids. It's feels so secluded. Great location!

Pictures don't show how large it actually is.

Absolutely worth every penny, amazed the entire stay. So much detail put into the entire home. Owner was very welcoming. Would defiantly be interested in booking again. Bring a pair of old shoes for the trails!
