If you love surrealism, then this house is the Dali to your Breton. From the curb, this stark contemporary actually looks like a cubist’s take on the modern American dwelling. It is, in fact a home for art.
It’s easy to fall in love with this house, not only for its enviable Highland Park location, but for the bright and open rooms that flow easily and allow for both the art and the architecture to stand out. And unlike many contemporary designs, this home feels warm and inviting.
If you are looking for the perfect space to show off your collection, this Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty listing could be just the home for you.

Jump to see all of the amazing space — both indoors and out — that this home has to offer.
“The house was custom built for the current owners, who are avid art collectors,” said listing agent Michelle Wood. “The floor plan is very open and airy, with an atrium-style entry and long galleries on the first and second floors that feature their art and overlook the backyard.”
From the wide plank floors to the smooth walls, the casement windows, and the custom lighting, every inch of this home is perfectly designed to showcase art and still be easily livable. And with five bedrooms, five full and one half baths, a two-car garage and an immense second-floor master suite, you won’t run short of space.
Wood says that this home is perfect for entertaining, but can easily accommodate a family lifestyle, too. She’s listed 3314 Dartmouth at $2.395 million, which is a great price for a three-story, 5,542-square-foot home that is just 8 years old and sits in one of the most desirable locations in all of North Texas.
“The natural light in the house is amazing, and the dramatic angles in the design make the house very visually interesting,” Wood added. “It also has a very functional floor plan, with living and dining rooms that can be either open off the kitchen, or closed off by pocket doors.”
And the kitchen, which has tons of European-style cabinetry and an immense eat-in island, is a home chef’s dream. Stainless steel appliances, spectacular lighting, honed counters, and clever backsplash windows are all the stuff of subtle genius. And like Wood said, if you want to keep your guests within the formal areas, just pull out the pocket doors and close off the kitchen and den from view.
“The master suite has it’s own private wing, overlooking the backyard,” Wood explained. “The secondary bedrooms are on the other side of the house for maximum privacy, and there is also a bedroom on the first floor. The third floor features a loft area with built-ins that can function as a children’s play room, a media room, exercise room or office.”
Of course, if all of the natural light filtering in doesn’t make you swoon, the outdoor spaces will. It all feels exceptionally private, thanks to the landscaping and siting of the home on the lot.
“Prospective buyers will appreciate the construction quality and thoughtful design of the house,” Wood concluded. “The location provides great proximity to the Katy Trail, Knox Street retail, and Armstrong Elementary.”
