SLEEK AND CHIC NEW CONSTRUCTION MODERN FARMHOUSE NEAR HIGHLAND PARK
Open house: Sunday, Sept. 10, 3-4:30 p.m.
The contemporary home at 3808 Emil Ct. is so new, the address isn’t in Google yet (look up 4711 Westside Dr. instead). It’s one of seven new construction modern farmhouses built by Centre Living Homes. Located near Lemmon Avenue and Inwood Road, this is the Westside Circle development, designed by Olsen Studious, and it’s gorgeous. This home has three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bath, three living areas, a study, and 3,572 square feet on two stories, built in 2016.
This property has a high-end finish-out throughout, and the wow factor begins with the incredible design and curb appeal. You walk into an enclosed sunroom as the entryway then into an open floorplan that includes a stunning modern kitchen, dining area, and living room with soaring, beamed ceiling and stone fireplace. The master is on the first level and its ensuite is the stuff of dreams, with a dual sinks, beautiful tile treatments, an oversized frameless glass shower with body sprays, and mod black soaker tub. Upstairs, the other two bedrooms are generously sized and include contemporary bathrooms. In back, the yard has a mature tree, privacy fence, and covered patio with ceiling fans. Other bonus: a three-car car garage.
This home was listed March 15 by Alex Perry with Allie Beth Allman and Assoc. for $1,399,999, reduced last week to $1.349 million.
MIDCENTURY-MEETS-ASIAN BRETTON WOODS HOUSE ON OVER HALF AN ACRE
Open house: Sunday, Sept. 10, 2-4 p.m.
There is nothing cookie cutter about the Bretton Woods home at 4022 Boulder Dr., with its midcentury-meets-Asian style and creekside lot of 0.586 acres. The front courtyard was designed by legendary Japanese Garden Designer Ray Entenmann and it’s gorgeous. Inside, black Brazilian slate flooring in the common areas and brick walls create an unusual and stylish feel. This home has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bath, two living areas, two dining areas, and 2,512 square feet on one story, built in 1963.
The second living room’s picture windows look out on a beautiful pool and a skylight brings in even more light. The updated kitchen has custom teak-stained pecan cabinets and all lower cabinets are drawers. The countertops are solid surface and there are stainless steel appliances, including a gas range. In the hallways, find bamboo floors and in the bedrooms, oak hardwoods. The two full bathrooms are totally retro and in pristine condition.
