I spent a few days last week in Dallas, Texas at the State Fair of Texas. It’s an annual event that draws crowds for the amusement rides, entertainment, fried foods and the auto show (why I was there). I wasn’t able to venture out of downtown, so I thought I’d take a look online to see what kind of beautiful mansions I couldn’t afford in Dallas. It’s been said everything is bigger in Texas and this contemporary estate fits perfectly with that saying.This five bedroom, six bathroom home is on almost a half acre, which seems like a large lot for being so close to the city–it’s only minutes from Downtown Dallas. It’s 6,756 square feet and is listed for $4.95 million.If you’ve read some of my other posts you know I love lots of natural light in a home, and it’s plentiful here. The floating staircase is prominent in this design and can be seen when first entering the home. There is even a glass section in the upper hallway to have a look below. I love the modern design of the wine room here. I wouldn’t call it a wine cellar, since it’s on the main floor. Technically if it’s less than 500 bottles, they call it a wine closet. Since I don’t drink wine, I’d store my Tito’s Vodka in here. It’d be appropriate since it’s made in Texas!
The home has a minimalist design and the listing says this is a Poliform kitchen, which is an Italian luxury modern brand. I love how the lucite stools seem to disappear into the island. CB2 has something similar which I’m sure is much more reasonable than the ones shown here. How many burners are on that cooktop? It looks like seven! From the kitchen we get a peek of the den. Interesting placement of windows on the floor beneath the television. This room is surrounded by windows. I’d love to be in this room during a storm.Crate and Barrel also has a leather chair similar to the one shown here. Not far from the den is the dining room with a gas fireplace. I’d love to have a dining table next to a fireplace. Gorgeous! The home is just as gorgeous on the exterior and we get a good look into the room from this view. It should be no surprise that this home has won awards for its design, according to the listing it has won three ARC awards.The master bedroom and his and her baths are on the first floor. If you’re looking to spice up your bedroom you can find a similar zebra rug at Macy’s or West Elm.If wonder if this is the his or hers bathroom? I’m guessing his.I love the frosted glass garage doors. From here we also get a good look at the glass bridge walkway that connects the home to the game room and additional bedrooms.
