A groovy midcentury modern home is on the market in Richardson, Texas, an affluent inner suburb of Dallas. Originally built in 1963, it has since been restored, updated, and expanded, resulting in 3,278 square feet of living space that includes four bedrooms, three and a half baths, and two living areas, all arranged around three courtyards.

The single-story features a low-slung post-and-beam construction and a flowing H-shaped floorplan characterized by floor-to-ceiling glass expanses, sliding glass doors, and clerestory windows, all of which require minimal coverings because of the home’s unique design.

Exposed beams, hardwood floors, tongue-and-groove paneling, as well as brick and stone detailing, further the residence’s connection to the outdoor space, which boasts mature trees, a swimming pool and spa, and multi-tiered decking.

In the main living room, a large stone hearth anchors the dynamic space, which flows into a custom “European” kitchen and dining area. A wall of glass provides views onto the backyard. A secondary family room follows, with the rest of the spacious bedrooms placed strategically across the rancher, which occupies a nearly half-acre corner plot. A circular driveway and oversized garage equipped with electric-car charging round out the smart-tech enabled, energy-efficient home.

Located at 2300 Custer Parkway, the property, renovated by designer Tavis Westbrook and architect Charles Bobo, is offered at $1.2 million.
