We’ve got a special treat for you on this week’s edition of Fresh Listing Friday. The home we’re featuring, at 8653 Groveland Drive in Dallas, is unlike any home we’ve shown you before. If you’re into modern design, indoor/outdoor entertaining, gardening, and/or living in a fabulous grown-up treehouse, you’ll all but die over this new listing.
This two-story modern structure was designed to blend into its surroundings, and it was featured in the April 2014 issue of The Lakewood Advocate. The home has two bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, and 1,550 square feet. A spacious deck surrounds the exterior of the home, creating a visual break between the spacious yard and the home itself.
It has a floating staircase, glass-lined walls, and is breathtakingly versatile for entertaining or finding some solitude. Night and day, this home feels like a glass house, which is exactly the architect’s vision. Downstairs there’s a living room at the base of the stairs, a kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a breakfast bar, a breakfast area, and a half bath.
Upstairs, a bright and airy catwalk connects the two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a private, screened-in porch with sliding glass doors that further expand on the indoor/outdoor design of this rare house.
The home was architecturally designed to showcase garden views and an elegant outdoor living space. Versatile areas of the deck and yard allow for the best of outdoor entertaining and relaxation. There’s a sustainable organic garden and an area bees for harvesting honey, both of which allow for productivity all year long.
All of this and more for just $469,000? If you need to see it to believe it, stop by the open house this Sunday, April 6, from 2 to 4 p.m.
