Hot Property: A Modern New Build with Some Austin Flair

New homes and developments are cropping up all over Dallas. And while you can have your pick of 5,000-square-foot-plus, multi-million-dollar mansions or luxurious high-rises, the West Dallas Haciendas development is offering something different. 

San Antonio-based Lake Flato Architects, which also designed Austin’s Hotel San José, is behind the development. You can see that Central Texas inspiration in the homes, like 1011 Nomas St., listing agent Jason Saucedo says. “You can definitely tell the vibe with the rustic Hill Country, modern feel to it.” The property features xeriscaping and drought-tolerant native plants. The courtyard is filled with decomposed granite instead of pea gravel or your typical grassy Dallas lawn. “Honestly, if you were out hiking in Austin and that kind of rock trail that you would be walking on? It’s that type of feel to it.”

The home doesn’t waste an inch of its 1,570-square-foot open floorplan. The great room includes the living, dining, and kitchen areas. “It’s really meant to where you can live and entertain all at the same time,” Saucedo says. “So, if you’re cooking, you’ve got a TV wall, you’ve got your dining room, you’ve got your living room, all there where you can enjoy it all together.” Plus, its nearly 20-foot vaulted ceiling, large picture windows, and indoor-outdoor living floorplan help enlarge the home. The bedrooms are roomy, with a walk-in closet and a spacious bathroom in the primary suite. 

“It is a two-bedroom home, but it lives very large,” Saucedo says. 

And the house is not without luxury, he says. There are museum-finish walls and a designer kitchen with a gas range, stainless steel appliances, quartz counters, lots of natural light, and a double-sided island that has storage on both sides as well as bar seating. 

Efficiency was kept in mind while building, Saucedo says. It’s “definitely centered around as much as zero waste as possible.” There’s LED lighting, a tankless water heater, low-flow toilets, and drip irrigation in the backyard. It’s well insulated, with high-efficiency windows and polished concrete floors to help control the temperature. The house also has a tin roof, which helps reflects heat. It’s a “forever roof,” Saucedo says. “That’s not like a shingle (roof) that you’re gonna have to replace every 20 years or so. The tin is made to last.” 

They aren’t spec homes, but “there’s a little bit of flexibility.” New owners can have a say in some of the properties’ details, like cabinet types, countertop color, and hardware finishes, like brushed nickel, brushed gold, or matte black. For the later homes in this phase, homeowners will also be able to select the exterior color, like light gray, sage, or navy blue. The color of this home, however, is already a light gray. 

The development is ideally located, Saucedo says. “They are centered, really, in between all the stuff where you want to hang out right now.” It’s blocks from Trinity Groves and just a short drive from the Design District, Bishop Arts, downtown, and more. If you don’t feel like hopping in your car, 1011 Nomas is just a block away from Benito Juárez Park. It’s also right across the street from Lorenzo De Zavala Elementary, the Anita Martinez Recreation Center, and Hattie R. Moore Park.

While 1011 Nomas St. is still about a month away from completion, scroll through the gallery to get an idea of what the home will eventually look like.
