Across from an elementary school, this unassuming home sat awaiting some tender-loving-care. With GrunBuilt’s help a diamond in the rough was revealed. With a new fountain and concrete planter, the front courtyard and fresh landscaping instantly improved the new curb appeal of this now modern looking house.
From the exterior front-entrance steel canopy, metal roofing and elongated wood siding, to the expansive lit barrel vault ceilings, surround fireplace, lit built-in bookcases and floating shelves throughout, this home boasts a feeling of comfort and coziness, a retreat away from the fast paced lives of the prominent (yet private) home-owners.
Rich aesthetics with designer wallpaper, metallic ceilings and premium textures graze the surfaces within, giving a sense of opulence without pretentiousness. This carries through to the entirely remodeled kitchen worthy of a James Beard Foundation Award winner, including custom cabinets, marble countertops and a Viking vent-a-hood with shelf.
Due to the close proximity of the Love Field airport, the ceilings contain soundproof sheetrock to mitigate any noise pollution from planes overhead. In addition to the kitchen remodel, the primary bathroom was completely remodeled as well with marble countertops, custom cabinetry, built-in tub in enclosed glass shower, and Robern medicine cabinets embedded in counter-to-ceiling led lit mirrors. One of the unique construction features of the home, was a custom-built lit cabinet boot display with floating frameless glass doors to showcase the owners proud Texas heritage through his boot collection.
The back patio is enclosed with phantom-style motorized retractable screens separated from interior wall of glass. A Big Ass Fan was installed in concert with ceiling embedded heaters for the colder months and the patio floor-treatment includes decorative concrete to suit the style of the surroundings. Lastly, low maintenance, premium-quality, natural-looking artificial grass was installed in the backyard, looking like manicured golf course greens able to withstand the elements for years to come.
