Gorgeous remodeled Mid-Century Modern home on a corner lot beside a creek in the beautiful White Rock Hills/Buckner Terrace/Claremont Garden District area of Historic East Dallas. The grey-painted facade of our home is accented with raw cedar panels and a bright red door, and slopes downhill towards the creek. Large trees line the creek and surround the house creating a beautiful open natural space filled with forest creatures including a huge pair of owls and a woodpecker living above the creek right there.
Out back, the house wraps around our rectangular pool shaded with huge trees, with large windows opening onto the patio which includes a pool house. From the pool, a beautiful terraced lawn drops 10 ft or so down to the creek and a greenhouse, and a narrow wooden deck extends to the creek with double doors opening into the huge master bedroom.
Inside the house, sharp angles, wood floors and a vaulted ceiling, coupled with the large windows looking onto the pool, give the living room and kitchen a wide open and airy feel, lots of room for high angle shots and equipment setup. The kitchen features granite countertops, subway tile backsplash and a breakfast nook surrounded by large windows on three sides, overlooking the pool, terraces and creek. The huge master bedroom features a lounge area with a fireplace and double doors opening onto the wooden deck, and the stunning master bath features a claw-foot tub, walk in shower and subway tile, not to mention a HUGE master closet. This is also the only Dallas home I have ever seen that features a BASEMENT! Close to 700 sq/ft of very interesting space with low 6'8" ceiling and glossed concrete floors, no windows, perfect for an editing suite or green screen room.
MCM design details in the architecture as well as the homeowners furniture, coupled with it's natural setting and organic creekside sloping profile, make this home part forest retreat, part elegant modern home and part mid-century time capsule!
Can be dressed up or down in many different ways, perfect for any genre! Use the quiet back yard and looming trees for your horror setting. Use the sloping hill and incredible greenery of the creek as a stand-in for California or another state that isn't Texas. Set your period piece in the White Rock Hills Neighborhood, one of Dallas' oldest and most beautiful neighborhoods straight out of the 1950's & 60's! Filled with MCM's and cottages, and criss-crossed by creeks, trails & parks, old diners nearby, the famous old Motel 7 just 2 exits down I-30, the possibilities are endless!
