It seems as if Joshua Nimmo will become something akin to Charles Dilbeck one day. The award-winning modernist architect is seeding the Dallas landscape with his designs, colonizing some transitioning areas of the city much like Dilbeck brought his eclectic designs to East Dallas, Oak Cliff, and beyond. However, with Nimmo’s sleek architecture, the placemaking effect is one that offers a deep, cleansing breath to areas that have suffered from decades of blight and neglect. 

As listing agent Robert Kucharski categorizes his Nimmo-designed listing at 2207 Ashby, the home is efficient by design, making use of every inch of space. This is a High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans that will lower your blood pressure. If you’ve recently KonMari’d your home and are looking for a dwelling that “sparks joy,” this is definitely inspiration for that, though as Kucharski notes, it’s already under contract.

As teardowns in the increasingly dense East Village area create new opportunities for urban infill, more and more award-winning architects are designing new riffs on the classic townhome structure. This particular project — the Deere Street Residences — was designed by Dallas-based FAR+DANG Architecture and is a particularly beautiful example. 

We’re thrilled to feature this listing from David Griffin & Co. Realtor Don Neilson as our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. Packed to the gills with over-the-top, luxury upgrades, you’ll be amazed at what you can find in this spectacularly executed unit.
