There are a handful of Dallas real estate agents that specialize in Midcentury Modern homes, and Brandon Stewart is one of them. Never willing to just preach to the choir about this architectural style and its ability to nimbly transform, Stewart practiced what he was preaching when he purchased his home in Highland Meadows, a neighborhood teeming with Midcentury Modern homes in various stages of renovation — some of them still largely original.
The home was taken to the studs in 2013 and renovated by Stewart, who is also an architect. The results speak for themselves, but that didn’t stop Stewart from dishing the details on what went into this spectacular Midcentury Modern renovation.
Now, if I were to take on a Midcentury Modern renovation, I’d definitely use Stewart’s home as a reference point.
“It’s a Midcentury Modern that’s been updated to today’s standards,” he said. “It has a large master suite, open kitchen, improved insulation, and energy-efficiency — the best of both worlds.”
No detail was left unexamined in this three-bedroom, two-full-and-one-half-bath, 2262-square-foot Midcentury Modern. The open floor plan is a huge selling point, as is the media room, home office, and perfectly landscaped backyard that is going to be party central once the temperatures cool down.
Plus, Highland Meadows is such an incredible area, with the highly ranked Highland Meadows Elementary School and a very active neighborhood association.
Stewart also invested in quality designer lighting and fixtures in this home, so you know you’re getting a good value.
“There are Danze Parma plumbing fixtures throughout, no carpet in the home, smooth-finish walls, and Cat 5 wiring throughout the house,” he said. “There is a media room with an electric screen that lowers in front of a wall of windows. I don’t know that I’ve seen that in a Midcentury Modern before. I love movies!”
But his favorite part of the home is the master suite for obvious reasons.
“We have always loved the large master bathroom with dual sinks, over-sized dual shower with rain dome, and the freestanding tub,” he said. “The backyard is also very nice. The 77-foot-wide lot provides a generous size while the mature trees give it a lush private feel.”
Brandon Stewart with David Griffin & Company Realtors is offering his personal home at 8736 Mediterraneanfor $589,000. It will go active on MLS later this week, so keep your eyes peeled!
