Now here’s a Friday Five Hundred you don’t want to miss! Situated minutes from the Bishop Arts District, Kessler Park, and downtown Dallas sits this three-bedroom, two-bath charmer that definitely lives up to the hype. With a 1,584-square-foot interior bursting with curated designer details modeled after European minimalism and trendy boutique hotels, you’ll want to get a jump on this one.

Nestled on a large 7,797-square-foot lot in hot Ravina Heights neighborhood, the home sits on a private, cul-de-sac with only 10 other homes – one of which originally belonged to Claude Cain, the neighborhood’s founder.

With its canopy of mature trees, lushly landscaped lawn, and fabulous backyard pool and deck for entertaining, you might just think you’ve died and gone to real estate heaven – well, we sure did when this beauty caught our eye.

“All of the renovations and new design features, completed by one of Dallas’ top fashion store owners who is known for her artistic approach to interior design, were curated with thorough attention to detail, function, and design,” says listing agent Hans Stroble of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices PenFed Realty Texas.

Nothing says midcentury minimalism like a sleek modern color palette in black and white, met by walls of glass to bring the outdoors in. This one does not disappoint! Featuring stunning wood floors, vaulted ceilings, white brick focal wall with fireplace, and an entire side of the great room adorned in sliding glass doors, there is no shortage of elegant living space for hosting swanky dinner parties or enjoying candlelit evenings for two.

“Such acute attention to detail can be found in nearly every square inch of this home,” adds Hans. “From the floors — the original hardwood floors were sanded down to their raw color, white washed by hand, and sealed with a rare matte finish to achieve a Scandinavian look — to the walls, both the interior and exterior walls were freshly painted with custom-crafted paint colors to achieve just the right white that combined brightness with warmth and just the right black that captured modern minimalism.”

The all-white gourmet chef’s kitchen is to die for — not literally, but you know what we mean — boasting a light and bright layout that includes clean-lined counters, custom cabinets, and high-end appliances. In fact, all appliances and fixtures throughout the home are brand new, including all-new sinks, faucets, cabinets, refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, vanities, toilets, designer lighting solutions, and more.

“This completely brand-new kitchen is perfect for entertaining and ready to impress with its ultra thin profile countertops cut from rare Italian Breccia porcelain slabs, and its unique design features like the integrated knife and chopping board storage inspired by Belgian design,” says Hans. We love how it’s completely open to the dining space looking out to the magnificent backyard.

Now, we know what you’re thinking … what about about the master? Let’s take a peek inside.

Even better than you expected? This luxed-out master retreat offers pure serenity for peace and quiet, as well as a super sexy bathroom covered in matte black penny tiles, and featuring a raised white sink with on-trend hardware. Très chic, no? 

Notice the retro-inspired light fixtures in every room? They strike the perfect balance between modern sophistication and whimsy that we adore. Guest rooms and secondary bath are equally lavish, with contemporary styling to ensure continuity throughout.

And if that isn’t enough to get you excited, check out the sultry outdoor oasis! Hans tells us, “The lush backyard features a fire-pit lounge area, saltwater pool, multiple lounging decks, and a lower grassy level with a newly planted loquat tree with plenty more space for an herb or vegetable garden.”

Are you in love yet? We sure are.
