Modernists, rejoice. Today’s Hot Property, situated between Oak Lawn Avenue and the Medical District, is a contemporary gem. If you’re a fan of cool white walls, simple fixtures, and huge windows, then 2129 Wycliff Avenue is sure to please.
This property is one-half of a pair of homes that were designed by award-winning architect Javier Espinoza and constructed in 2015. Both are perched above street level, with sloped front yards full of greenery that draw the eye toward their front doors.
2129 Wycliff’s metal-accented exterior feels industrial at first glance, but its polished wood fence and golden uplighting ensure that the overall look is warm.
Inside, bright white museum walls are poised for new artwork. Honey-colored wood accents, from the stairs to the banisters, balance the clean-lined metal windows. Though the home is directly adjacent to Harry Hines Boulevard, the main windows have a view of treetops, not traffic. Additionally, sidelights (the proper term for narrow vertical window panes) are abundant, letting in sunlight while preserving privacy.
The all-white kitchen may be small, but its lacquered cabinets and granite counters give it a sleek look. Similarly, both bedrooms have crisp, simple bathrooms that minimalists will appreciate.
In the backyard, a fenced-in green space is surrounded by towering plants. The outdoor space comes equipped with decorative lighting, an irrigation system, and a patio for entertaining. This build was also outfitted with several smart features, like a Tesla plug, a Nest thermostat, and a Ring doorbell with floodlights.
