The Skinny: After retiring as chairman of real estate investment company Trammel Crow, J. McDonald Williams set about doing a little development of his own. He tapped Bodron + Fruit Architecture to design a modern mansion for an 1.3-acre lot in the tony Dallas neighborhood of Bluffview. The result is this stunning, clean-lined spread, incorporating three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a 5000-book library, Bulthaup kitchen, and an expansive master suite with fireplace and hidden television. A covered patio links the main house with an entertaining pavilion—equipped with a wet bar—while a long lap pool also features plenty of seating for guests beleaguered by the hot Dallas summers. Set amid a beautiful stand of well-spaced trees, this prime modern manse is now up for sale, asking $9.75M.
