As far as architectural trends go, there’s nothing with staying power quite like the lines of a transitional modern farmhouse, complete with angular rooflines, symmetrical windows, broad hearths, and classic color schemes. Situated on one of the best streets in University Park and designed by one of our favorite architecture firms — Stocker Hoesterey Montenegro Architects — this gorgeous transitional modern farmhouse listed by Allie Beth Allman & Associates luxury real estate expert Nora Ling Lane is timeless, and could easily be the location for a romantic comedy or engrossing love story.

It’s easy to see why 3828 Greenbrier is our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans, but that won’t stop us from telling you all about it anyway.

You can tell from the exterior of this listing that inside, it’s basically drowning in natural light. And not only does the floor plan allow light to effortlessly move through the spaces, but the views are splendid, too.

This gorgeous, just-completed modern farmhouse is another beautiful, energy-efficient build from CandysDirt.com Approved Builder JLD Custom Homes.

Immediately, when I hear the words “modern farmhouse,” my ears perk up. Sometimes, though, the term is used so broadly and incorrectly that it’s been used to describe Tudors sporting a coat of white paint, Craftsman homes built in the 1920s and recently updated, and the random ranch fixed up by Fixer Upper fans. 

This home, however, gets modern farmhouse exactly right. That’s what you’d expect from CandysDirt.com Approved Builder JLD Custom Homes. And it’s crazy energy efficient, too!

Splurge vs. Steal: Two Modern Farmhouse Homes with High-end Finishes, Luxe Details | CandysDirt.com

The modern farmhouse look is a huge trend nationwide and it’s showing up in beautiful form all around Dallas. 

The North Texas take on modern farmhouse marries a contemporary-transitional design aesthetic with cozy natural elements to create a fresh, clean-lined, cozy feel. Think white or cream-colored exterior, front porch, standing seam metal roof, open floorplan, warm wood accents, sliding doors, and a back porch or patio. 

The two houses we’re featuring in today’s Splurge vs. Steal have all these elements and more — they’re excellent examples of the trend done Dallas-style. They’re in different well-known neighborhoods, but the vibes are similar. Which one is your favorite?

We look at houses all day long. And it’s not often that a new build delights us the way this modern farmhouse by Patten Custom Homes does. It is detail-oriented, with endless built-ins, fixtures, and flow designed specifically for family living. For partner Natalie Patten, 9215 Royalpine Dr. was a labor of love.

“I designed this home with a family in mind,” Patten said. “I put a lot of effort and love into making this home set up the way I’d want to live.”

We think that effort shows. Come, have a look!
