This Mid-Century Modern Dallas Home Changed Its Layout During Its Renovation

When you think of your dream home, do you think of clean lines, minimalist spaces, and natural elements like wood accents?

If this sounds like your dream space, consider a mid-century modern home. This home in the Melshire Estates neighborhood is a prime example of this popular design style.

The house was built in 1962 and extensively renovated in recent years. The two-bedroom space embodies the mid-century modern feel with its striking custom millwork, clean lines, and simple yet striking finishes.

Listing agent Faisal Halum of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty said renovations to the 3,109-square-foot home included changing the layout. What was once a three bedroom home is now a two bedroom space with an office. Although the sellers didn’t add square footage to the home, they did add a detached two-car garage, he said.

Halum said the home’s orientation to the lot and the location of the skylights allow plenty of natural light to fill the space during the day.

“There’s a warmth and a comfort, a kind of zen, tranquil feeling that you get when you walk in,” he said.

The home has custom white oak millwork designed by Mike Henry, whose portfolio includes work at the Ritz-Carlton in Dallas, according to listing information.

When you walk through the front door, the living room and dining room of the house are next to the entrance hall. There are built-in wooden shelves in the living room and lots of natural light. The home’s kitchen and family room have an open concept design. The family room has a vaulted ceiling and the space has a fireplace, built-in cabinetry and shelving. The kitchen of the house has a large island and ample storage space. The family room and kitchen overlook the backyard with a wall of windows and a sliding glass door.

The house has a wine cellar behind the kitchen, a laundry room and a mudroom easily accessible from the backyard and the detached garage. The master suite is in its own wing of the house, across from the main living areas. The suite has a large bedroom with room for a sitting area, a bathroom, a dressing room and an office with a built-in desk. The second bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and a dressing room.

The property is 0.38 acres and has been landscaped. Outside, you will find three terraces and a swimming pool with a water feature.

The house at 5609 Willow Lane is listed at $1,395,000.
