If you’re looking for a traditional, run-of-the-mill University Park home, then keep searching, because this one-of-a-kind beauty may not be for you. The smart home has today’s cutting-edge technology with the look of a Midcentury Modern, and is just a year old so nothing needs fixing.

When builder Josh Zielke began construction on the captivating house, he had plans of making it his own home and created customizations some only dream of. Lucky for you, the expert builder ended up needing to move on and now the unparalleled abode is up for sale.

According to CNBC’s number crunchers, Dallas made the list. And it’s not too surprising, after all, another study from Zillow found that someone with a high school diploma and no college hours at all could afford (in theory) to buy a home in Dallas.  (more…)
