There’s a fascinating trend we’re seeing in Dallas homes this year, and believe us, it’s a bit surprising. No really, that’s the trend—surprise! Take this beautiful home in the vibrant Briarwood neighborhood. 5011 Purdue loves surprise.

Around each corner, this beautifully updated home enchants with a spiral staircase, a gorgeous wine closet, and a light-loving glass door opening the kitchen to an outdoor oasis. (p.s. You can fall in love with this home in person! It’s open this Sunday—5/4/2014—from 3-5 p.m.) 

“Homes with hidden treasures are hot,” observes interior design blogger Brooke Larson.  “We all bring a host of expectations to any space, so surprising features that can take us off guard make all the difference!”  Flavorwire supports this trend, noting that “homeowners [ . . .] are creating their own creative, covert spots that are perfect places for reading, hanging out, playing, and pretending that the outside world doesn’t exist.”
