When you think of your dream home, do you think of clean lines, minimalist spaces and natural elements like wood accents?
If that sounds like your dream space, consider a mid-century modern home. This home in the Melshire Estates neighborhood is a great example of this popular design style.
The home was built in 1962 and extensively remodeled in recent years. The two-bedroom space embodies the mid-century modern feel with its striking custom millwork, clean lines and its simple but statement-making finishes.
Listing agent Faisal Halum of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty said that renovations of the 3,109-square-foot home included changing the layout. What was once a three-bedroom home is now a two-bedroom space with an office. While the sellers did not add to the home’s square footage, they did add a detached two-car garage, he said.
Halum said the home’s orientation on the lot and the placement of skylights throughout allow for plenty of natural light to fill the space during the day.
“There’s a warmth and a comfort, sort of a zen, tranquil feel you get when you walk in,” he said.
The home has custom, white oak millwork designed by Mike Henry, whose portfolio includes work at The Ritz-Carlton in Dallas, according to the listing information.
