It seems as if Joshua Nimmo will become something akin to Charles Dilbeck one day. The award-winning modernist architect is seeding the Dallas landscape with his designs, colonizing some transitioning areas of the city much like Dilbeck brought his eclectic designs to East Dallas, Oak Cliff, and beyond. However, with Nimmo’s sleek architecture, the placemaking effect is one that offers a deep, cleansing breath to areas that have suffered from decades of blight and neglect.
As listing agent Robert Kucharski categorizes his Nimmo-designed listing at 2207 Ashby, the home is efficient by design, making use of every inch of space. This is a High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans that will lower your blood pressure. If you’ve recently KonMari’d your home and are looking for a dwelling that “sparks joy,” this is definitely inspiration for that, though as Kucharski notes, it’s already under contract.
“The open floor plan has two living areas, tall ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and wonderful storage solutions to keep the environment clutter free,” Kucharski said.
We love the clean lines and minimal aesthetic of 2207 Ashby, which is located in the Deere Park neighborhood of East Dallas. Located just outside of CityPlace in a rapidly redeveloping area dubbed East Village, this home offers the things you love about city life, including walkability and access. But inside, the home is a salve for the chaos of the every day.
The home has two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and one powder bath. Both bedrooms are upstairs with en-suite baths, reserving the first floor for entertaining and relaxing. Built in 2012, Nimmo’s design offers 2,052 clutter-free square feet over two floors, complete with beautifully polished concrete floors, scores of windows, and a lovely floating staircase. It’s truly a home for art.
“The kitchen is beautiful, with quartz countertops, top-of-the-line appliances including a full-size stainless side-by-side, built-in refrigerator-freezer,” Kucharski said. I love the European-style cabinetry, too, which has so many drawers — something experienced home chefs will appreciate. Plus, the eat-in island offers a spot for your guests to keep you company as you put the finishing touches on your culinary masterpiece, or while you pour another glass for them.
On the way upstairs, note the generous landing, which is an excellent place for a home office. I love how the window topping the staircase allows for more light to stream through to the bottom floor.
“The master suite includes a stunning bath with rain shower, dual-bowl vanity, private water closet, and a massive walk-in closet,” says Kucharski. “The home also includes a high tech audio-video-security-home automation system that stays with the home.”
Of course, it’s important to note that this modern sanctuary near everything the city has to offer also has an outdoor area to call your own. As Kucharski notes, outdoor entertaining space is a premium in this area, and those who have pets, kids, or green thumbs will appreciate how much they get in 2207 Ashby.
Robert Kucharski with David Griffin & Company Realtors has 2207 Ashby listed for $545,000.
