This Woodcreek Contemporary was voted Crowd Favorite on the prestigious White Rock Home Tour in 2012. That’s high praise if you understand anything about the standards of Dallas modern architecture fans.
This tour began in 2006 as a showcase for Contemporary, Modern, and Midcentury Modern homes. It has become one of the most exciting tours in Dallas. Chosen homes meet some pretty high standards and to have a house voted Crowd Favorite carries a lot of weight. It means not only has the house met those high design standards, but that everyone also fell in love with the home.
It’s easy to see why.
Built in 1962, 9840 Coldwater Circle is set into a heavily wooded, 300-foot creek lot. If you are looking for privacy, it doesn’t get much better than this 2,686-square-foot Woodcreek Contemporary. It has the architectural elements you expect, such as soaring ceilings and huge windows with views for days. It also has completely unexpected details, such as the fantastic floating staircase with a crape myrtle handrail, and a Juliet balcony in the master that overlooks the family room.
The owner completely remodeled this four-bedroom, three-bathroom Woodcreek Contemporary in 2012 with every update you can imagine. The loft-like, dramatic family room is anchored by a substantial modern gas fireplace with a gorgeous black granite hearth. That same black granite has been used in the kitchen to span 21 feet of countertop space. An enormous stunning Rainforest marble island provides the perfect workspace.
One of the features you will love about this Woodcreek Contemporary is a crow’s nest lounge that overlooks the backyard, terraced stairway, and cantilevered deck that floats above the creek and overlooks the woods. I’d install a wine fridge and never come down!
While the house is an undeniable, official crowd pleaser, the grounds are a great bonus. “Someone could build another structure on the other side of the creek,” Dallas City Center listing agent John Angell said. “It’s such a large property you can easily add a bridge over the creek and put in a guest cottage or a pool and cabana.”
The Woodcrest subdivision is just off Peavy Road and next to Ash Creek Estates. This is an area of Dallas that I think has gone largely undiscovered by newcomers. While it is only five miles from downtown Dallas, it feels as if you are a million miles away.
“The owner is an artist, and he really put a unique mark on it,” Dallas City Center listing agent John Angell said. “It’s a true one-of-a-kind property.”
Angell has this unique Woodcrest Contemporary at 9840 Coldwater Circle listed for $674,900.
Open House: Sunday, May 19, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
