This week’s Suburb Sunday sends us to Southlake for three selections of simply gorgeous homes. (I just couldn’t resist the lovely alliteration.) One is transitional, another is modern, and the third is a geodome you have to see to believe. Which do you prefer? (Pick the dome!)
Modern Style in the Carillon Community
Address: 1816 Saint Philip Ave., Southlake
- 4 bedrooms, 4 baths
- 4,026 square feet
Roxann Taylor of Engel & Voelkers Dallas Southlake has the listing for this modern custom home in the gated Carillon community that’s priced below appraisal. Beautiful stone and river rock line the pathway up to this zero lot stucco home. The kitchen with gorgeous floor to ceiling custom cabinets features a 14-foot waterfall island, farm sink, and stainless steel appliances including commercial grade range and vent, gas cooktop, oven, built-in microwave, and built-in refrigerator/freezer. Those same gorgeous cabinets are in the home office as well. Annual homeowners association fees of $2,300 cover front yard maintenance, common area maintenance, and full use of facilities including a community pool, catch-release pond, basketball, and walking trails.

Feat of Engineering in This Amazing Home
Address: 2056 N. Kimball Ave., Southlake
- 3 bedrooms, 3 baths

Pam Taeckens of Coldwell Banker Residential has this 1986-built geodesic dome home inspired by Buckminster Fuller. The lush, heavily treed one-acre home site backs up to Corp of Engineer Property, just minutes from Lake Grapevine and hiking trails near SH 114. The omnitriangulated surface offers huge vaulted ceilings with unusual windows, skylights and a dramatic spiral staircase to the second story. This great room has a fireplace, built-in cabinets, window-filled dining area that opens onto the deck, and open access to the kitchen. A second living or dining area is on the other side of the kitchen that also opens up to the deck.
