Mad For This Las Colinas Midcentury Modern Designed by a Student of Frank Lloyd Wright

“Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you,” once said the GOAT himself, Frank Lloyd Wright – and this Midcentury Modern gem in Las Colinas does just that. It was designed by renowned Dallas architect David George, a devoted student of Frank Lloyd Wright, and in our opinion, a visionary who quite literally took those words to heart. The result is a nature-forward treasure, quietly perched on a heavily treed lot at 113 E. Northgate Drive. And with a price tag under $585,000, it’s a rarity that is sure to go quick. Let’s take a look around, shall we?

A Breathtaking First Impression

 

First, we are struck by the mature lot and timeless appeal of the brick-clad exterior. The walk-up is unreal! Here, canopies of mature trees unfurl with majestic poise, as if to say “welcome home.”  Step through the front door and you’ll soon discover there is not a single room in the house that doesn’t embrace the peaceful yet unbounded natural beauty of the estate.

Blurring The Lines, Inside And Out

Bathed in sunlight, you’ll marvel at the natural glow that pours in from enormous picture windows, essentially blurring the lines indoors and out. Wood folding panels serve as clever window treatments, while vaulted ceilings throughout feature wood paneling with beams or a touch of glass for dramatic effect.

Function Meets Form

Of course, the home’s function is just as impressive as its form. The three-bedroom, three-full-bathroom residence affords a gracious footprint spanning 3,218 square feet. To screen it from street noise, it is enveloped by berms. These indistinguishable mounds of soil stretch across the front and sides, further enhancing the tranquil secluded feel.

Tasteful Appointments Abound 

Among the meticulous interiors are Saltillo tile floors and three fireplaces to cozy up to in the elegant dining, living, and master suite. A sparkling private pool with enchanting backyard setting is the cherry on top.

An Irving Address

The home’s location is a plus, too! It comes perched in the long-established neighborhood of Las Colinas and sits within minutes of three private country clubs. These include the Las Colinas Country Club owned by ClubCorp, Hackberry Creek Country Club, and four championship golf courses.

The area is home to numerous attractions as well, like the Toyota Music Factory Complex, which is just three miles down the street. It serves as Irving’s newest center for entertainment and eats, met by the popular Alamo Draft House, also within a short nine-minute drive.

For your shopping fix, pop over to the ever-so-posh Highland Park Village in 20 minutes time. Or make your way to North Park Center in under half an hour. Other highlights closer to home include the gondola rides at the Mandalay Canals, numerous parks and trails, plus the Mustang sculptures, which are a Las Colinas landmark. If you’re on the hunt for a home with the “it” factor, this is a very cool contender indeed.
