983 Sylvania Front

983 Sylvania was taken to the studs and rebuilt into an LEED Gold masterpiece by D’J Perkison. But how do you find the right buyer for such a unique home? All photos by MetroplexHD.com

There are a few Dallas homes that are so unique that they earn a permanent spot in the bit of our brains exclusively wired for real estate. For me, this Eastwood midcentury modern that was completely re-imagined by architect D’J Perkison is one of those homes. You probably had the distinct pleasure of touring this East Dallas marvel at 983 Sylvania during this year’s White Rock Home Tour and thought, “What a wonderful way to breathe new life into an outdated home!”

And that’s just the reaction Perkison, founder of Studio Perk, was hoping for. When she bought this home with her husband and set upon remodeling it, the goal was to use only the most sustainable materials possible. The results were stunning, of course.

309 Hazelwood Front

This home is absolutely KILLING ME. Why does it have to be so dang perfect? UGH. It’s like the seller said to themselves, “Hey, I know we’ve got this amazing midcentury modern in one of the best neighborhoods in all of Fort Worth, but let’s go ahead and put in a family room and kitchen with floor-to-ceiling windows that will make every person who ever lived weak in the knees, and then let’s put the hardwood floors on the diagonal because there’s just not enough chicness and character in here.”

Seriously. Dying.

You’ll know what I’m talking about once you see the rest of the photos of this amazing 1955 home inside the haute Rivercrest subdivision.
