Lake Highlands Property, Dallas, Texas – Svend Christian Fruit of Bodron + Fruit
Perched on a small hill overlooking White Rock Lake and the surrounding park, the views to the lake were a driving factor in the design of the residence. Designed for an active family of four that loves being outside, the main living spaces and bedrooms were each given an excellent view that connects the interior spaces to the park.
While the home sits on a generous site, the building setbacks restricted the footprint of the home. This restriction led to the unique feature of the house cantilevering over the swimming pool which also allows the pool to take advantage of the views of the surrounding park.
The exterior of the home is composed of stucco, mahogany, limestone block and ipe decking, combined with interior finishes of white oak flooring and cabinetry from sustainable woods. The materials combine to create a warm and modern environment. bodronfruit.com
