Readers, we’ll admit it: our typical Hot Property is decidedly feminine. After all, it’s easy to be won over by white-and-gold kitchens, pretty wallpaper, pastel paint colors, and other delicate details.
Today, however, you won’t see a single smidge of pink. 11704 Forest Court is alluringly androgynous, both inside and out.
This 4-bedroom home is located on a private cul-de-sac just off North Dallas’s Forest Lane. It’s tucked behind a geometric iron gate and shrouded by myriad mature trees for extra seclusion. When the gates swing open, the brick façade on this 1984 build takes center stage. Black accents, from the roof to the iron-clad doors and windows, add a touch of modernity, while the exterior lights cast a golden glow.
Inside, the home is brimming with eye-catching accents. One wall of the foyer is adorned with sculptural butterflies and twigs; the opposite nook houses a white pear statue. The home’s future owners will have ample opportunity to display their art collection, thanks to the ample wall space, crisp white paint, and recessed lighting.
Though each room embraces a monochrome palette, the home never feels stark. A debonair parlor, for example, boasts black lacquered walls and custom built-in shelves, while both the kitchen and wet bar are enveloped in handsome brown cabinetry. Stunning stone details are another constant, but we’re not talking about your typical Carrara marble. The master bedroom’s stone fireplace has an eye-catching pattern that almost resembles zebra print. In the master bath, another black-and-white slab brightens the wall behind the standalone tub.
The foliage outside the home is like living art. It peeks through every floor-to-ceiling window to offer a touch of greenery to an otherwise non-organic interior.
Speaking of greenery: the backyard at 11704 Forest Court is an oasis that could rival a five-star resort. A plethora of plants fills the outdoor space, from trailing vines to towering palm trees. The pool deck is crafted from an eye-catching mix of stone and teak, while two chaise lounges on a nearby patio create an ideal space to soak up the sunshine.
