Serenity in the city is the only way to describe the setting for this wonderful contemporary. It is nestled in a park like setting on a half-acre creek-lot offering breathtaking vistas of the outdoors from most rooms. This one owner home was custom designed by Dallas Architect, Mark Schechter and built by Ed Mullins in 1974.
Lush landscaping with seasonal flowers lines the pathway to the house. An inviting entry leads to an open living and dining area with a wall of windows overlooking a tree filled creek lot. This space is enhanced with wood floors, vaulted ceilings, and a gas fireplace flanked with bookcases. Adjacent is the kitchen, breakfast area and family room flooded with natural lighting from a gallery of windows. Kitchen features include an abundance of cabinetry, breakfast bar, double ovens, side-by-side subzero refrigerator/freezer, two drawer Fisher & Paykel dishwasher, walk-in pantry and skylight. There are multiple seating venues including a pit area for TV watching.
A sliding glass door opens to a large wooden deck perfect for grilling or just relaxing and enjoying the view at the end of a busy day. This backyard paradise is large enough for a play area as well as a pool. The spatial concept and flow for the entire house allows for entertaining on a grand scale be it indoors or outdoors.
Master suite and study are in a separate wing of the house for privacy and both have floor to ceiling windows. The study has a large closet, wall of built-ins and overlooks a private courtyard. Vaulted ceilings and a view of the creek enhance the master. A renovated master bathroom has custom designed cabinets by Arbitrary Paradox, un-honed white marble counters, large glass-enclosed shower and his and her walk-in closets custom built by Closet Factory
In a separate wing of the house are three spacious bedrooms, one has its own bathroom and the other two are joined by a jack-n-jill bath. A large laundry room with sink, hanging rods, and storage cabinets is conveniently located nearby
This one of a kind home is conveniently located just north of 635 and is in Richardson Schools.. It is within minutes of Northwood Country Club, shopping, LBJ and the North Dallas Tollway.
