Sensational Oak Lawn Contemporary With Luxe Loft-Like Living

When I think about contemporary architecture, I gravitate to dramatic lines and angles, creative use of light, and bright accent colors. So when I saw this brand new listing from Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Ralf Baumann, I had to share it with you because it not only has a wonderful contemporary feel, but the use of light and the wide-open spaces in this immense Oak Lawn new build will definitely leave and impression.

The home is located right in the thick of Oak Lawn, and sports incredible floor-to-ceiling windows and a floating staircase that definitely brings the “WOW” factor. With 22-foot ceilings, drama is a priority, not an afterthought. 

“The open floor plan is an entertainer’s dream, with a chef’s island kitchen and adjacent bar with Sub-Zero wine cooler and pellet ice maker,” Baumann notes. “The kitchen opens to the dining, living, and sitting rooms with peninsula fireplace, and guests can overflow to the backyard through a trio of metal-framed glass French doors.”

Though the wide-open first floor is perfect for throwing epic soirees, there’s plenty of room for your art collection throughout this home’s more than 5,600 square feet. Plus, this new build offers plenty of eco-friendly features, from the always-green artificial turf in the front yard to the LED lighting and even a charger in the garage for your Tesla.

This is definitely a home for those who enjoy sharing the finer things in life, too, as there are two large covered balconies upstairs perfect for enjoying the sunset over this hot neighborhood. Grab a glass of vino and find a perch, because you won’t need to go anywhere for a while considering the wet bar in the rear balcony, just off of one of the two fully kitted out master suites.

If I was already moving my furniture into this listing, I’d definitely call dibs on the master suite with the balcony that faces the backyard. Why? Well, the oversized steam shower and the dramatic soaking tub are two great reasons, but the separate living area and enormous balcony are big selling points, too. The home has a total of four bedrooms and four full plus one-half bath, which means you have plenty of room for guests and family.

“In back, there is also a 500-plus-square-foot guest house with kitchen, bedroom, bath, and living area,” Baumann said. It sounds like a great opportunity to bring in some short-term rental income to offset all of the art you’re going to have to buy to fill the walls in this incredible home.

And not only is this incredible new build gorgeous, but it’s smart, too. It comes with a home automation system and smart wiring that will make your life a breeze.
