Share News:

Details matter. Which is why this North Dallas transitional contemporary is the epitome of thoughtful design. Special features abound. Double islands in the chef-quality kitchen. A super chic wood wine rack that displays 40 bottles. Towel warmers in the master bath. A two-story, over-the-top custom closet designed to house off-season clothing.

“Visually, it creates a big splash.”

“A lot of care went into what homeowners would really appreciate,” says Rogers Healy and Associates listing agent Kodi Nelson.

Incredible drive-up appeal makes for a striking first impression. Bright white brick is a handsome contrast to the black slanted roof, steel door, and windows. Mature trees overlook a modern concrete walkway.

The house is the handiwork of EMRO Homes, a leading real estate investment company specializing in high-end new construction and renovations. Founders Eric Messer and Roger Oquist have over 40 years of combined experience in the real estate and construction industries. Daughter Hannah Messer is the mega-talented in-house interior designer.

An impressive double-height ceiling gives the great room a spacious, airy feel. The abundance of windows floods the room with natural light. A textured ceramic tile fireplace makes for a stylish anchor.

White oak flooring extends throughout the open floor plan. The great room flows into the large gourmet kitchen, outfitted with stainless Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances. White cabinetry, two quartz islands, and matching backsplash are sleek and modern.

“Features are designed to captivate the most discerning entertainer,” says Nelson. We were especially intrigued by the home’s full kosher-ready prep kitchen.

The adjacent dining area houses the previously mentioned decorative white oak wine rack, a wine refrigerator, and nugget ice machine. A cool, contemporary lighting fixtures ups the room’s style quotient. Two additional first floor rooms can be used as either a home office or workout area.  

The master bath oozes luxury.

Think heated towel racks, coffee/beverage center, even a customized drawer to store hair appliances. Designer touches add to the allure, from the elegant black soaking tub to fashion-forward floors and tiling. An oversized shower offers an array of options, including multiple rain heads, body sprayers, and hand-held nozzle.

The pièce de résistance lies behind a hidden doorway. A double-story master closet, complete with a full range of customized storage solutions, is a fashionista’s dream. A spiral staircase connects the 18-foot by 11-foot downstairs to an 11-foot by eight-foot second level.

The main stairway sports a cable railing system leading up to three additional bedrooms and baths. A media/game room is wired for a large screen television.

The covered tile patio features an outdoor kitchen and fireplace/pit for year-round outdoor living and entertaining. The spacious grassy backyard can be customized to suit the owner’s specific needs and lifestyle.

The 5,667-sqaure-foot house sits on an oversized 120 by 140-foot corner lot in Melshire Estates, one of Dallas’ most desirable and convenient neighborhoods. It also features a three-car attached garage and downstairs guest quarters.

“It’s a real showpiece,” says Nelson. “The builders really knocked it out of the park.”

Located at 5707 Willamstown Road, the five-bedroom, five-bath property is listed for $1.99 million by Kodi Nelson and Maggie Parks #ModelRealtors of Rogers Healy and Associates.
