The 20-foot-high gallery, just off the entry, with its polished concrete floors and museum-white walls, is flooded with natural light from the quadrant of oversized skylights. The flexibility of the space allows it to function in a variety of ways — from intimate dining to lavish entertaining. Just beyond the gallery is a spacious living room, highlighted by a floor-to-ceiling glass wall with sliding door that opens onto the landscaped courtyard shaded by mature trees. Punctuating the glass wall is a fireplace encased in striking custom steel panels.

Adjacent to the living room is a dining space opening to both the kitchen and courtyard. The gourmet kitchen features custom Danby marble counters and white oak cabinetry. The stainless appliances include a Bertazzoni gas range with convection oven, Liebherr refrigerator, and under-the-counter wine refrigerator.

The dramatic custom steel and white oak staircase leads to the second floor, which is finished with white oak flooring throughout. The master bedroom features a fireplace with custom surround, sitting area, and a balcony overlooking the backyard. The spa-like master bath includes marble counters with double sinks and custom cabinets, as well as a white-tiled shower room with soaking tub and frosted glass wall overlooking the treetops. The walk-in master closet contains built-in custom cabinetry.

A stunning glass and steel bridge overlooks the gallery and connects the master to the utility room and a second bedroom. This bedroom includes a walk-in closet with additional under-eave storage, along with an ensuite bath surrounded in white tile.

With a metal roof, powder room, sound system, gated alley and two-car garage, the home is conveniently located near the Katy Trail and the Knox/Henderson/Uptown shops and restaurants. Listed by Faisal Halum with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.

Robbie’s Real Estate Trends: Dallas, With an Eye on the Future

10/28/2013

Photo / Shutterstock

As seen in the Wall Street Journal:

Our son Ben spent eight years in China running a Xiamen leather goods factory for a Texas company. He returned to Dallas last year, and is currently pursuing his MBA at SMU. It’s a delight to have Ben, his wife, Jenny, and their children Micah and Zoe in town.

One of the true joys of being a grandparent is having the opportunity to experience things through the fresh perspective and innocent eyes of precious children. I know my hometown like the back of my hand – maybe better. And while Dallas has always been a premiere place to work, live and grow up, the city that all three of our grandchildren can experience today is far different than it was when I was their age. In some respects, I’m re-discovering my hometown through their eyes.

The Arts District’s magnificent performance halls; science and nature adventures within the Perot Museum; the wide-open spaces of Klyde Warren Park and other downtown green spaces; and the Bush Presidential Center, a stone’s throw away, all provide fresh new cultural, educational and entertainment platforms of enrichment that didn’t exist a few years ago.

While these are all awesome places and present opportunities now, real estate isn’t about what happens today, it’s about what happens tomorrow. With that in mind, you can see where things are headed in and around downtown. Obsolete office space transforming into residential spaces; plus interesting retail development and office relocation all happening to accommodate a new generation of young people coming home or into the area for the first time. Significant numbers of them are relocating close to the stages, museums, parks and other spaces I mentioned with the goal of working, living and playing downtown.

Dallas is growing and changing almost daily it seems. It’s exhilarating and promises sensational new options for future generations. If you haven’t been downtown lately, I invite you to see what all the excitement is about. In the meantime, our grandchildren are having a wonderful time exploring now, and looking forward to what’s coming next.

“All of the close-in neighborhoods have had resurgence. We even have homebuilders returning to the Park Cities and East Dallas to keep up with the demand. New luxury options, from single-family to townhomes, are drawing buyers to Uptown, Oak Lawn and Turtle Creek. And as areas such as Oak Cliff experience an exciting renaissance, more Dallas residents are going to look at close-in neighborhoods so they can be part of the action, too.” Continue Reading…
