Our Inwood House of the Week is a modern home on the range built for a man and his dog. Yes, we’re serious — and we’re dog people at CandysDirt.com, so we’re loving this tale about 84 Vanguard Way in Urban Reserve.
“This was a custom build for a single male client … and his dog,” Scott Marek of Marek Architecture said. “He loves his dog and he thought this lot would be a great place for them both as it opens right into a public park.” Talk about endless Frisbee opportunities.
The entire design was focused on the park and the back of the 2,583-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-full-bathroom and one-half-bath house can be seen from Royal Lane. It’s quite the jaw-dropper and has possibly the most amazing screened porch we’ve ever seen.
“The lot is a crazy pie shape so we came up with a split V design with a courtyard,” Marek said. If you look at the house on Google Earth, you can really appreciate the way Marek took full advantage of the location.
Lee and Sam Hall of Sustainable Structures of Texas built the house in 2015. “They upped the game a lot,” Marek said. “They are very concerned with indoor air quality and did everything to ensure the house was not only certified Indoor airPlus by the EPA but also Certified LEED–Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council.”
This one-of-a kind home on the range is listed by Beverly Pitchford with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s for $1.1 million.
So why are the man and his dog leaving the perfect man-dog house? Well, for love of course — and marriage. So now’s your chance to move into one of the coolest neighborhoods in Dallas and into the best home on the range we’ve ever seen. Better bring your dog along … and a Frisbee.
