We look at a lot of homes online, all day, every day. Now and again, there are homes that just jump off the screen, like this Greenway Parks custom contemporary at 5339 Nakoma Drive. Talk about a wow factor. This home wows from front to back, side to side, and up and down.
Mark Hayes of Hayes Signature Homes finished building the 4,464-square-foot home in 2016. With five bedrooms, four bathrooms and a powder bath, it backs up to the coveted Greenway Parks greenbelt. If you’re new to town, or to Greenway Parks, many homes were built around private parkways. Everyone wants a home that has access to these areas. It basically provides more privacy, and an extended yard.
“It’s so well-thought-out,” listing agent Ryan Strieff with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate said. “From the striking elevation to the detailed interior finish-out selections, it’s a home with an excellent floor pan, tailor-made for entertaining. It was a great collaboration between the seller, builder, and architect, Allison Brooks at B2 Architecture + Design.”
Floor-to-ceiling windows allow for stunning views from the entire home. The seller salvaged hardwood floors from the previous 1947 house on the property and repurposed them on the ceiling of the study — a nice homage to the old house.
The family room has beautifully stained, rift cut, white oak cabinetry, a custom fireplace surround of Italian Calacatta Vagli marble, and stained maple wood beams. All of this adds up to a very cozy feel despite the open floor plan. The light fixture of hand-blown glass globes was custom made in Dallas. More stained rift cut cabinetry is used in the bar area. A Sub-Zero wine fridge and beverage center that includes a Bosch dishwasher, makes entertaining incredibly easy. That’s Bardiglio and Thassos marble hexagons making up the backsplash.
One of our favorite spots is the kitchen. You rarely see a range with a view. That is a bit of builder brilliance indeed. It’s generally the sink that gets a view but you spend way more time cooking and it’s nice to see the clever placement here of the gas range cooktop. There are also electric double ovens, an electric steam oven, and a warming drawer, all by Wolf. We really love the built-in banquette — a great spot for offering advice for the cook as you sip your cocktail.
Those sleek cabinets make our hearts skip a beat. They are Rehau high-gloss polymer acrylic, crafted in Germany, and they are delicious. The door off the kitchen leads to a lovely covered patio.
There’s a secondary living area and four bedrooms upstairs, including the master, which allows for a great deal more privacy. Vaulted ceilings and enormous sliding doors, leading to a balcony, create a true tree-top sanctuary that overlooks the green belt. But wait there’s more!
“The master bathroom is just exceptional,” Streiff said. Linac marble was custom cut to create a chevron pattern on the shower walls and behind the soaking tub — a real show stopper. The tile floor is imported from Spain. There’s a steam shower and remote control sheer window treatments. If there were a wine fridge, we could stay here all day.
The backyard is low maintenance and party ready with a stunning heated pool and spa with LED lighting. And remember that green belt!
Streiff has this Greenway Parks custom contemporary listed for $ 2.375 million.
