Set on 1.459 acres, this house combines architectural perfection and a serene setting that can make one forget they are in the city. Arrival down a narrow gravel drive provides privacy from the street with the pleasure of an “aha” moment to discover the home tucked beyond old growth trees.

The magnificent house offers cozy human-scaled spaces in addition to expansive rooms with walls for large scale art. Living, dining, library, kitchen and guest rooms comprise the main floor, while the second floor is reserved for a secluded master suite, with its own outdoor terrace and his and her baths.

Guest accommodations are in a separate two bedroom, two bath house, accessed by a bridge over a stream. Breathtaking views of the sky and trees and water from every room in the home with an interesting mix of handcrafted materials contrasting with rigorously machined parts creates an unparalleled architectural experience in Dallas.
