Sure, midcentury moderns seem to be popping up on the market more often now, but it’s rare to find a home that is both as large and as open as this midcentury located in North Dallas. Not only that, but its on a huge lot — almost three quarters of an acre.
And once you see inside, you’ll definitely understand why this Brandon Stewart listing is our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. Also no surprise: It’s already had multiple offers. However, it’s not over until the ink dries on the closing papers, so call Lisa Peters today if you are ready to put in your highest and best on this stunning midcentury modern in a quiet, tranquil enclave.
“Purple Sage Road is a nice pocket of midcentury moderns that many are unaware of,” says Stewart, whose Mod214 brand specializes in the style. “There are a number of very nice examples there. We’re not sure who exactly was the architect on this home, but David George did the home next door.”
Stewart, a Realtor with David Griffin & Co., says that this listing at 13304 Purple Sage is on a cul-de-sac — a highly sought-after feature. “The house itself is an open linear plan that focuses views from the master and all public spaces to the pool and amazing backyard via a continuous wall of windows,” he added. There are four bedrooms, three full baths, and more than 3,200 square feet in this beautiful 1965-built home, which is listed for $679,000.
We love the vaulted, exposed-beam ceilings are painted a soft white that helps the home feel much more bright and open, pulling in the light from the clerestory windows. It doesn’t hurt that the house has enormous walls of floor-to-ceiling glass drawing the outdoors in. A combination of stone and wood helps keep the design grounded, including the dark espresso cabinetry in the kitchen — a perfect buffer to the stainless steel appliances — as white or gray would make it feel too cold and surgical.
“The gourmet kitchen features Viking double ovens, and Viking cooktop, and a Sub Zero refrigerator, wine cooler, ice maker,” Steward said. “It’s an appliance package that you wouldn’t typically find in this price point.”
We also love that the kitchen opens to the family room, which is perfect for today’s homebuyer that wants casual spaces for entertaining. “The kitchen/living space is probably the best room in the house,” Stewart added.
You get views to the very private backyard here, which is perfect for parents who like to keep an eye on their babes as they play. Of course, I’m going to disagree with Stewart and say that the oversized master suite, which clocks in at 23 by 16 feet (!) is the best room in the house.
I love the enormous, two-person jetted tub, and the frameless glass shower, both of which benefit from the huge skylight. There’s also a gigantic walk-in closet. Hubba hubba!
“We had multiple offers this weekend and just executed one this morning,” said Stewart. We can see why!
