Sometimes your dream house is not your forever home. The owners of 10150 Marsh Ln. know this all too well. The couple bought the lot a decade ago and spent nearly four years building their ideal house. “They built it with love,” listing agent Terri Brak Thomas says. But “after living there for almost five years—it’s just the two of them and their three large dogs—it’s become a little bit too much of a home.”
So now they’re building a new abode and their 7,000-square-foot passion project is up for grabs.
The owners worked with architect-builder Blane Ladymon of Domi Works to build the residence. “Every detail of his home was a well-thought-out plan between the owners and the architect,” Thomas says. They wanted a resilient house, so they used acacia wood on the exteriors. They installed towering glass windows, which bevel out. Inside, they installed a mix of concrete, cork, and burnt oak floors; maple cabinetry; and onyx counters. The downstairs features 24-foot ceilings, which let in lots of natural light.
The resulting home is “very imposing but it’s very warm,” Thomas says. “When you walk in the home, you just want to lie on one of the couches in the three living spaces and just snuggle up.”
It’s also perfect for entertainers. The house has three living rooms, a sprawling courtyard for indoor-outdoor living, and five bedrooms spread across several wings. Additionally, the home sits on 1.39 acres, so there’s plenty of room in the front and backyards for parties. In fact, says Thomas, the front can fit up to 300 people.
To sweeten the deal, the owners are also willing to sell their 1.5-acre property next door, Thomas says. So, if someone were to snag the neighboring lots, “it [would] actually be a three-acre property, which as far as Dallas, that’s just very hard to come by.”
