This challenging small corner site with a full story slope is in the prominent “Uptown” Dallas area. Zoning requirements included dual front yards, facade setbacks at upper levels and the Oaklawn Special Purpose District standards. The extensive client program requirements were accomplished without zoning variances.
This design was a collaborative effort by the two principals of the firm. The 5000 SF house has two stories and a basement and sits on an 11 acre site with a pond. The goal was to minimize the vertical impact of the home on the site while incorporating characteristics of a southern plantation home with natural materials and contemporary interior elements. The home provides an open and airy environment with abundant natural light and still feels cozy to a family of four. The owners required plenty of indoor and outdoor space to entertain large family gatherings for 50 to150 people.
Planned for a large lot in North Dallas with many mature trees, the home was designed with an updated Prairie Style character on the primary facades and opens up to a more contemporary approach on the private side facing the pool and landscaped backyard. The design uses a combination of rich materials such as cut limestone, custom wood windows and stepped zinc roofing.
The home has traditionally planned separate living, dining and service areas as well as a large open plan family room / daily dining / kitchen area. The first floor has a master bedroom wing including dual master bathrooms and a separate mother-in-law suite. There is a partial basement which includes a home theater and workout room. A partial second floor has three guest rooms designed similar to large hotel suites. An elevator connects all levels of the home.
There are several beautiful covered porches and extensive outdoor spaces including an outdoor kitchen area. Adjacent to the swimming pool is a fully appointed pool house. There is an attached three car garage and a supplementary garage structure with additional living quarters above.
The home is approximately 12,600 square feet in size on the primary floors plus the basement and out buildings.
