Just off Lower Greenville is Palo Pinto Avenue, a quaint, tree-lined street filled with Craftsman homes in a rainbow of colors. Today, we’re stepping into one of the newest builds on the block, 5711 Palo Pinto. This custom home has an architectural style that pairs nicely with its neighbors, but its modern details create a level of polish that sets it apart.
The brick façade is a creamy white, which helps its black windows and shingles pop. Tidy landscaping draws guests toward the front porch, which has ample space for outdoor living and would be a perfect spot for a porch swing.
Inside, the home is outfitted in a harmonious blend of neutrals, from white walls to light wood floors and metallic accents. In the main living area, natural light streams in through the windows that flank the fireplace. A wall of floor-to-ceiling windows and glass French doors lead the eye outside, so the open floorplan seems to go on forever. The kitchen has a minimalist feel with contemporary black hardware and white cabinetry. Two copper-toned pendant lights add just a touch of glam.
Turn the corner and you’ll find a wine cellar that faces the dining room. The tiny space is enclosed in glass, allowing the homeowner’s wine collection to take center stage.
In addition to its sleek home office, this build has a bonus study area just off the kitchen. You’ll find a desk, open shelving, pretty pearlescent tiles, plus plenty of extra storage.
In the master bath, a wall of high windows allows sunlight to pour in while maintaining privacy. The treetops outside provide the only splash of color in this all-white, marble-filled room.
Finally, step outside to check out the small but serene backyard. A pergola houses an outdoor fireplace and seating area, while a little green lawn offers just enough space for kids and pets to run and play.
