This distinctive home, built on-spec in the Preston Hollow neighborhood of Dallas, appeals to potential buyers with a discerning eye for contemporary design at a luxury price point. The architect provided a plan washed in daylight and sited to take full advantage of the mature landscaping, with private views to the pool and rear outdoor living areas. We featured the exterior stone on an entry wall, a double-sided fireplace in the family room and dining room, and a wall in the study. This design element, combined with large steel window and door units, creates a seamless transition between the indoor and outdoor living areas. The custom-designed floating staircase with book-matched white oak veneer and glass balustrade creates a dramatic effect as one enters the front door. Lighting with sculptural and architectural qualities punctuates the design of each space. The addition of custom details, such as built-in banquettes in the breakfast area, interior doors with textured glass panels and custom trim details, quietly enhance the homes’ contemporary style. A neutral, warm grey and soft white color palette provides a dramatic backdrop for the future homeowner’s art collection, furniture and accessories.
