When I first saw The Avant Group‘s latest completed Midway Hollow home, I was fascinated. The small-batch builder does a fantastic job of building homes that feel so much more expensive than their sub-$1 million prices, with fantastic finish-out and smart home packages that add so much value to their contemporary aesthetic. But this new build at 3758 Bolivar is somewhat of a departure from the massing and shape of their other builds. And I’m smitten. 

Of course, we’d expect nothing less than a home that’s easy to fall for and, of course, easy to live in, from The Avant Group, a CandysDirt.com Approved Builder. But this house? It’s something of a departure for The Avant Group, who listened to buyers about what they wanted. The results speak for themselves.

I know this house and floor plan, and I know The Avant Group: quality construction with a unique, contemporary sleekness that preens with transitional elegance. Their “look” is what everyone wants, but their interiors are downright amazing. Come tonight and look for the many extra thoughtful touches in the kitchens, using every nook and cranny for space storage. Look for a secret storm room in some Avant homes. Look for the usual, the extra thoughtful. And look at how much living space they put on each and every lot. Look for me tonight, and I’ll show you around! Here are the floorplans… (more…)

When you enter an Avant Group custom home, there’s a certain atmosphere of sleek sophistication and glamour that you can expect. That’s not a coincidence, says Heaven Porteous, who oversees this small-batch builder’s design and finish-out. Their latest spec home on the market in Northwest Dallas’ Ridgecrest Village neighborhood (north of Northwest Highway and west of Midway Road) perfectly shows off the ease-of-living and contemporary aesthetic that has attracted families to the brand in droves. 

Sure, this soft contemporary with modern influences has some trendy fixtures and finishes. Take the roofline and the stained wooden siding, easily visible from the curb of 3889 Cortez Drive — it’s easy on the eyes and offers clean lines and the brand’s midcentury modern-influenced elevations. But what you don’t see from the curb is the glorious, glamorous details just behind that contemporary front door.

It’s hard picturing yourself in a home that is completely empty. Sometimes it’s even harder in a new build. That’s why staging is so important, especially for spec homes. 
 
When The Avant Group — a CandysDirt.com Approved Builder — finished this beautiful contemporary two story in Midway Hollow, the home’s incredibly lofty ceilings and cool neutral color palette made it feel cold and cavernous. So Avant’s marketing chief, Heaven Porteous, brought in Suzie Barrett, owner of Dallas Staging Solutions. The results speak for themselves.

3860 Dunhaven Road is a beautiful new build from the Avant Group.

The Avant Group, a CandysDirt.com Approved Builder, has easily kept pace with our region’s brisk real estate market. Buyers have been in an absolute frenzy trying to secure the next home by this acclaimed small-batch builder. Not surprisingly, the Avant Group sold both their Dunhaven and Valley Ridge projects for above list price. Even though these homes did not start out as custom builds, the Avant Group has been able to tailor the finish-out to meet their buyer’s unique needs. How’s that for custom?
