Location: Dallas, Texas
This “soft contemporary,” as the listing calls it, was designed in 1983 by an architect that managed the local branch office of I.M. Pei during the development of Dallas City Hall, and bears a few of the latter’s trademarks, including extensive use of glass and geometries. Located in Dallas, the subtly ’80s-style four-bed-five-bath measures 4,625 square feet and features a unique triangular entrance marked by a skylight that extends toward the back of the house.
White walls and pale tiled floors line the spacious interiors, where a step-down living room with fireplace and sliding glass doors face the private garden, pool, lake and fountain—perfect for entertaining—and a den, formal living room, eat-in kitchen, and vaulted office reside. Updated and carefully maintained by the owners, the home, located at 11714 Pine Forest Drive, is asking $1,375,000.
