Sleek Sophistication Looks Clean and Contemporary in Kimball Square | CandysDirt.com

Fifteen minutes from downtown Dallas and 10 minutes from Bishop Arts, you’ll find the neighborhood of Kimball Square and a sleek, contemporary house we love. Located at 3508 Shady Hollow Ln., this house sits on a quarter-acre treed lot and is our Thursday Three Hundred.

The exterior is eye-catching, with architectural elements you won’t see anywhere else in Dallas. The interior is the work of interior designer, V Mode de Vie, who hand selected all interior finishes, materials, and details, while keeping with the natural architecture this home already had. The combination makes for a stunning and rare find, all for well under $400K.

This house has four bedrooms, two of which are masters, two full bathrooms, one half bath, an office, two dining areas, and 2,162 square feet on two stories.

One of my goals for Tarrant County Tuesday is to introduce new areas of Fort Worth to our readers.  While it’s fun to see large and expensive homes, not everyone can or wants to afford a home that sometimes comes with that type of dwelling.

It brings me great joy to showcase neighborhoods of Cowtown that have quality homes at affordable prices and values.
