Modern farmhouse design reaches a new level of luxury with this exquisitely crafted Platinum Series Home by Mark Molthan. Mixing traditional features (think gable roof, shiplap walls, and open porch) with contemporary elements, this unique new build located at 5520 Caladium Dr. in North Dallas offers buyers the best of all worlds: style, space, comfort, and, of course, Molthan’s meticulous attention to detail.
Those familiar with Platinum Series Homes, a CandysDirt.com Approved Builder, have come to expect this unprecedented standard of perfection. Everything from hardware to lighting to the type of paint used is carefully curated, according to the builder, “By collaborating with talented professionals and using the very best materials available, it’s the quality of our homes that defines us.”
Take the soaring, top-of-the-line Lincoln windows. Rimmed in black, these floor-to-ceiling stunners not only provide an abundance of natural light—they’re a direct contrast to the 4,871-square-foot home’s bright white exterior. Horizontal wood siding adds even more texture and interest, says listing agent Katie Schortman. “White isn’t cookie-cutter anymore.” A standing seam metal roof further complements the monochromatic palette.
Honey-colored white oak keeps the interior warm and welcoming, used for both the five-inch wide plank floorboards and statement-making fireplace in the main living area. High ceilings provide an open, airy feel, enhanced by a combination of decorative and recessed lighting. The adjacent dining room flows seamlessly into an uber-chic gourmet kitchen, equipped with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances. Also noteworthy: custom Sunwood white and glass cabinetry. “It’s a great way to display things in a modern, personal way,” says Schortman.
Yet the listing agent’s favorite feature is the home’s two multi-purpose family areas which can easily be customized to suit a household’s special needs and interests. “Downstairs, the full game room is perfect for spending quality family time. Upstairs can be turned into a play or media room.”
More tranquil hours can be spent in the inviting, light-filled master suite. Characteristic of farmhouse style, Molthan used modern shiplap with quarter-inch spacing for the bedroom’s sloped ceiling and bathroom walls. Another farmhouse touch: the barn-influenced glass shower door. Additional living quarters in the five-bedroom, seven-bathroom abode include four second-floor bed/guest rooms and baths.
As for outdoor living, the covered porch with contrasting black brick patio is only the beginning. Large, mature trees add a lush feel. And for visionary buyers, the oversized 105 x 52 lot is a proverbial blank canvas for creating an individualized outside oasis. “There’s a ton of side and backyard—plenty of room to do a pool or, really, anything you want,” says Schortman.
As with all Mark Molthan homes, this extraordinary home is built to become the epicenter of a unique luxury lifestyle. Voted a Dallas Best Custom Home Builder every year since 2006, the Platinum Series Homes team is honored to be among the top 2 percent of home builders in North Texas. Inspiration to bring the covetable modern farmhouse style of architecture to Dallas originated in Long Cove, where it proved to be a rising star. This Inwood Road Estates property is convenient to major travel arteries, shopping, dining, and the city’s top private schools.
