Hot Property: A Freshly Built Four-Bedroom in Little Forest Hills

The quickly growing Little Forest Hills neighborhood has an unofficial motto: Keep Little Forest Hills Funky. This East Dallas area, which is just steps from White Rock Lake and the Dallas Arboretum, offers a multifarious mix of homes, from dark green Craftsmans to red brick traditionals. Many are decades old, and while new builds do pop up, renovations and restorations are common, too.

8926 Groveland Drive was completed in 2020 and has some serious curb appeal. The angular façade incorporates a mix of materials, vertical windows, and sconces to add bursts of light to a moody black wall.

Inside, polished concrete extends through each space on the ground floor, from the minimalist all-black mudroom to the first of the four bedrooms.

The living area is the heart of the home; it has an open floorplan with the kitchen at its center. A marble waterfall island and light wood cabinets brighten up the room.

The adjacent living area isn’t especially large, but its ultra-high ceilings create an open feel. Its built-in electric fireplace is nestled inside a slate gray column. A tiny alcove houses a dry bar, complete with a wine fridge.

The master suite is on the lower level, too, and the concrete flooring flows inside. Two pendant lights are already suspended in front of a black accent wall that’s fit for a headboard. In the master bath, dual sinks are complemented by a bold black-and-white wall, and there’s a walk-in shower as well as a bathtub.

The other bedrooms include details like walk-in closets, tiny touches of wallpaper, and patterned tile in the bathrooms.

There’s not much by way of a backyard, but the home extends further back than its neighbors. The spacious back patio feels private. The entirety of this side of the home is black, which lets its angles stand out against a sunny sky.
