Last week, I discussed my obsession with driving down Turtle Creek Boulevard, and my now eternal interest in “The Point.” Today, we’re moving our real estate focus just a few yards away.
The most interesting part of Avondale Avenue is the stretch between Turtle Creek and Oak Lawn Avenue, lined with stately English garden homes, Craftsman designs, and modern masterpieces, the latter of which comprises today’s “Hot Property.” Deemed “Casa di Luce” by its original owners, the home was built in 2014 by Morrison Dilworth + Walls (the same architects behind NorthPark Center), and makes great use of its unique, triangular lot.
Like much of Dilworth + Walls’ work, Casa di Luce blurs the lines between interior and exterior seamlessly. At 4347 Avondale, rows of floor-to-ceiling sliding glass door panels surround a clean-lined courtyard and pool, the true focal point of the home. A cohesive interior is filled with polished white marble and concrete. With its mostly closed off façade (apart from one sleek, vertical kitchen window), the rows of windows keep their focus on that peaceful pool, creating an airy, open, and private oasis in the middle of one of Dallas’ sought after areas.
We shouldn’t breeze by the topic of the thoughtful, minimalistic exterior, with its hand troweled stucco and Roman travertine rain screen. It’s the aesthetic opposite to the gated, French-inspired Place Des Vosges across the street.
The internet can be a hectic place these days—hopefully this serene home’s slideshow can offer a bit of zen.
