Julie Ann Pickering and her Pickering Properties’ Group have done an amazing renovation job on this 1963-built northwest Dallas home that blends beautifully simple touches with hints of bold design hidden throughout. That’s why this four-bedroom, three and half-bath midcentury modern in Inwood North Estates is selected as this week’s Inwood National Bank Home of the Week.
Midcentury modern design lovers will appreciate the crisp white walls, dark hardwood floors, and bold black accents here. Then, once they’re already amorous they’ll flip for the striking mod design found in the bathrooms and open kitchen. Look at the mod backsplash in the kitchen, set against custom mirrored cabinetry with under-cabinet lighting. The kitchen features quartz countertops, a farm sink, and luxury stainless steel appliances including dual fuel gas range cooktop, convection oven, electric oven, built-in microwave, and dishwasher.
Dining room options include casual banquet seating in the kitchen as well as adjacent formal dining, set against a dramatic wall of mirrored custom cabinetry with under-cabinet lighting. The living, dining, and kitchen all flow effortlessly as one — the effect Pickering was going for when she took this home down to the studs.
The bright open concept home has not one spectacular master bedroom, but two. Why do you need two? Real estate trends show us families are living together longer and combining households into one home where parents, grandparents, and children can all live together. Even as a mother-in-law suite, the second master is a smart addition to this home.
The first-floor master, measuring in at 17 x 12 feet, has hardwood floors and patio-door windows that feature exterior window shades for soft filtered light. The sliding barndoor bath has an entire wall of shelving and drawers for linens, dual sinks, elegant light fixtures, and tile flooring reminiscent of 60s-style hexagon tile floors. The standalone shower has multiple shower body sprays and steam settings for heavenly bathing.
The second master suite, located upstairs, is a whopping 20 x 21 feet. It’s got a walk-out balcony, a window seat long enough you could lie down, and still room for a sitting area. The bath brings back the mod design motif with diamond tile flooring and toiletry shelf for the frameless standalone shower with multiple body sprays and steam.
The spacious backyard has a pergola-covered patio with a transparent polylaminate-type of roof cover that blocks 98 percent of UV rays without blocking any natural light. There is no homeowners association and its zoned for Dallas ISD’s well-rated Nathan Adams Elementary, Marsh Middle School, and W.T. White High School. Located at Harvest Hill and Welch Road, it’s located just steps from Jesuit Dallas and near Hockaday, Greenhill, St. Marks, and Ursuline.
