Explore this spectacular, tree-house-inspired retreat in Dallas’ booming North Oak Cliff neighborhood. Set on a hilltop and surrounded by lush foliage and mature trees, the modern design of this house is sleek and open, providing views and natural light from large, custom, single paned windows. Inside, the relaxing color palette contrasts with the rich, dark-stained, oak hardwood floors. The espresso-stained custom cabinetry in the kitchen, complemented by neutral Silestone counters, create a warm and inviting environment. The kitchen’s stainless steel appliances are sleek and modern, and include a Bosch double oven and microwave, dishwasher and a gas, five-burner cooktop with vent. The refrigerator is a built-in Electrolux Ikon.
The floor plan features one bedroom and bath, open living and dining area, kitchen and utility room on the first level. On the second level is the large master suite, a third bedroom, and an open area that could be used for living or as a study. Adjacent to this space is a spectacular rooftop deck with more than 200 square feet in which to relax.
A chic European finish out of mosaic tile and Silestone counters are used in all the bathrooms with complementing Kohler plumbing fixtures. The generous closets feature custom Elfa systems installed. Tall ceilings, large rooms, walls of glass, and the outdoor living areas work harmoniously to create a serene flow. The home is prewired for audio/visual and security technology. The landscaped yards have built-in sprinkler systems.
This amazing home is the result of a collaboration between Matt Holley, the developer of Kessler Woods just across the street, and modernist architect Doug Hildinger. The pier-and-beam foundation, some exterior brick and some framing from a 1945 ranch house were used for the footprint. New framing, plumbing, electrical, insulation, heating and air-conditioning systems were all used to build the new structure.
Adhering to green construction principles, the following materials were used: high-efficiency SEALECTION® 500 open-cell polyurethane foam insulation, windows with thermal broken frames and 1-inch thermal super-efficient Low-E glass, an HVAC system that is divided into two zones and uses a Carrier 14 Seer Puron heat pump unit with back-up electric heating strips, and two 50 gallon electric water heaters on a circulation that will provide on-demand hot water.
