The Modern Farmhouse of Your Dreams From JLD Custom Homes

Share News:

This gorgeous, just-completed modern farmhouse is another beautiful, energy-efficient build from Approved Builder JLD Custom Homes.

Immediately, when I hear the words “modern farmhouse,” my ears perk up. Sometimes, though, the term is used so broadly and incorrectly that it’s been used to describe Tudors sporting a coat of white paint, Craftsman homes built in the 1920s and recently updated, and the random ranch fixed up by Fixer Upper fans. 

This home, however, gets modern farmhouse exactly right. That’s what you’d expect from Approved Builder JLD Custom Homes. And it’s crazy energy efficient, too!

“I truly think this might just be the most beautiful home we have ever built!” exclaimed Jeff Dworkin, president of JLD Custom Homes. We love their work, so that’s a huge compliment for this very well-done modern farmhouse located in Montebello Park. And it’s solid, too, with some fabulous design details sure to liven up everyday living.

“From the floating staircase to the 17-plus-foot soaring ceilings in the family room, to the open floor plan — everything about this home just works so great together!” Dworkin said about 4406 Somerville Ave. “This home has all the latest in what today’s buyers are looking for with white cabinets, quartz countertops, a 10-foot kitchen island, and stainless steel appliances — including a 36-inch KicthenAid Pro Series range.”

It’s a sizable home, with four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 3,968 square feet offered by Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty’s own Gia Marshello for $949,000. It’s a great value for families considering that it’s inside the attendance area for the award-winning Dallas ISD Mockingbird Elementary (neé Stonewall Jackson Elementary) campus.

The master bath features a barrier-less, freestanding shower and tub.
The walk-in closet in the first-floor master suite is enormous.
The first-floor master is big and bright with views of the tidy backyard.

“The location also is on a dead-end street, so there is very little traffic,” Dworkin said. “There are lots of new homes on the street already, and more to come by JLD Custom Homes.”

We love it, and the location can’t be beat! What do you love most about this brand new modern farmhouse from JLD Custom Homes?
