Relocation

Everyone is moving to North Texas. If you have a move-in ready home with a pool, it’s bouncing off the market in days. The Dallas Business Journal said so just last week:

“We have seen a tremendous increase in the number of prospects and projects we have in very diverse industries.

Why This House is Right For Those Relocating

It also has 14,795 square-feet, seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, four powder baths, and an extremely rare commodity for Texas — a fully finished basement.  

Provenance

When musician Darren Kozelsky and his wife Amy decided to make Dallas their home many years ago, they enlisted architect Lionel Morrison to create this clean-lined, minimalist home. They wanted to see the sky and the trees, yet have privacy.

Morrison and minimalism go hand-in-hand. He’s well-known for creating calming, light-filled, residences with a natural harmony between the structure and nature. He does not sacrifice warmth, however, and this is not a sterile house by any means.

Morrison designed this curved contemporary masterpiece to have the necessary privacy from the street. He then opened the interior up with floor-to-ceiling glass walls that wrap around an infinity pool.

If you’re new to Dallas and Morrison’s talents, his vision was instrumental in the design of NorthPark Center and One Arts Plaza, which anchors one end of the Dallas Arts District. We’ve written so much about his residential projects he has his own section in our archives where you can read more about this magnificent home here.
