Every inch of lighting designers Tully and Kalynn Weiss’ Lakewood digs is a piece of art.
From the gracious elevated lot to the European-inspired kitchen to the Zen-like principal suite, this home is a knockout! And the price will have you floored. Take a peek, then immediately dial your Realtor.
A Lakewood Home Like You’ve Never Seen Before
“Rarely does a home with this much panache and style, located on such a superb block, come on the market at this price point,” says listing agent David Griffin with David Griffin & Company Realtors.
“This one-level home vibrates a unique sense of space and aesthetic. It is rare to find a home with such a high quality of design at any price point. And it is doubly rare to have the opportunity to purchase an artist’s own personal design statement.”
Custom Designed By A Creative, For A Creative
Built by a creative, for a creative, it’s only fitting that the Weiss’ home inspires.
The scale is somewhat smaller than the homes that Tully Weiss Lighting Design has worked on. The company is an open secret among art collectors and highly sought after those with substantial collections, including Howard Rachofsky, Kalita Beck Blessing, and even Ray Nasher.
Their own home is a modest two-bedroom, one-bathroom beauty that lives large with light-filled interiors spanning 1,515 square feet.
But don’t be fooled by the numbers. This contemporary charmer has room to spare! Clever design solutions and ample storage give it an easy flow, indoors and out.
“The home’s main living area is a large L-shaped space, providing wonderful versatility for arranging and re-arranging its use, as is the want of the creative mind,” says Griffin. “Unusual accents include stylish built-in, perimeter counters that serve as seating and/or display space. Sliding window shades are another unique touch – practical, original and aesthetically appealing. The home is blessed with wonderful storage. And closets and cabinets are fitted with industrial strength piping and sliding doors to accommodate a gamut of size and weight requirements.”
A Place That Promotes A Sense Of Airiness And Calm
Anchored by an open-loft plan, it’s a showplace that ensures. Best of all, it affords a sense of airiness and calm. This is of course thanks Kalynn and Tully, who, 16 years ago, orchestrated a complete overhaul of the property supervised by noted architect Dan Shipley. The result is a full reimagining of the original home.
First, you’ll find an abundance of art walls. Next, clean lines, concrete floors, and raised ceilings. Lastly, without even realizing it, the home’s one-of-a-kind designer lighting steals the show.
“The marvelous light quality in the house speaks to the owner’s professional expertise, both from the perspective of natural lighting and from the masterful deployment of exemplary lighting features. Pella windows, including floor-to-ceiling windows and doors opening to the rear garden, and large single-panel casement windows make the living environment pleasant throughout the day,” adds Griffin.
Situated on a Wide Elevated Lot With Outdoor Enchantment
Even better, this Lakewood gem sits on a wide elevated lot, yet still feels worlds away with intimate and serene spaces to entertain.
You’ll enjoy a fully hedged “outdoor living room” shaded by a massive Pecan tree. And there are spaces for the green thumb too! This includes gardens, flower beds, and room to grow your own vegetables and herbs.
And what’s better than growing your own, then mixing up a craft cocktail or meal with fresh ingredients in an European-inspired kitchen?
According to Griffin, this one comes “streamlined and uncluttered by upper cabinets.” You’ll also love the room-sized pantry, which doubles as a laundry room.
Zen-Like And Ideally Located In Prime Lakewood Territory
The owner’s retreat, which Griffin calls “serene and Zen-like,” is equally appealing. It affords a large bath resembling modern art, complete with a coveted, ipe-floored shower.
Other highlights include an attached two-car garage and a prime cul-de-sac location that opens to the SoPac trail, mere steps from White Rock Trail!
What’s not to love? Get it while it’s hot, y’all.
