Thanks to the magic of social media, we found out about this Modern Contemporary zoned for the sought-after Rosemont Elementary in Oak Cliff a week or so ago — and now we’re bringing it to your attention, too.
The builder, 419 Reinvestments, has been quietly bringing modern design with clean lines and high quality, energy efficient construction to the North Oak Cliff area since 2012. Their latest home, located at 765 Evergreen Hills Road, is the latest in that string of successes.
Designed to take advantage of all the mature trees on the lot, the home manages to feel both ensconced in nature and urban at the same time, thanks to an immense third story rooftop deck and views from the second-floor master suite.
“Quite literally built in and around the trees, sophisticated structural engineering allows for the living areas and bedrooms to extend over and butt up against canopies without compromising the root systems, ensuring the health and longevity of the environment,” spokesperson Sarah Cole told us.
A 60-foot lap pool runs alongside the length of the first-floor living area, a sophisticated move that also provides plenty of shaded pool time in the Texas heat.
“The design is simultaneously captivating and elegantly simple; the natural beauty of the site is what is emphasized,” Cole said. “One can easily miss some of the hearty, ultra-modern features such as the recessed baseboards, museum finish walls, and steel structure, all building elements that require a laser focus to achieve perfection.”
The first floor is for entertaining. The second floor is home to all four bedrooms (including the enormous master with a private patio, gorgeous en-suite, and his-and-hers closets).
The third floor is also for play, with its massive rooftop deck.
“While it is challenging to pinpoint the most impressive feature of this home in the East Kessler neighborhood of North Oak Cliff, certainly the most breathtaking differentiator and arguably the coolest aspect is the third story rooftop deck,” Cole said, adding that it outguns even some of Dallas’ best restaurants when it comes to space and views.
It’s also fully kitted out with a commercial tile system, full kitchen, fire table, and enough space for at least 40 guests, all with those incredible views.
“The house truly provides a complete experience: streaming in through the two-story windows, the indoor lighting changes constantly throughout the day and with the seasons, as the sun shines between the leaves and limbs,” Cole added.
The Oak Cliff home is priced at $2 million and is listed by Jeff Dean with 1 Source Dfw Realty. To see more, click here.
