This outstanding 6,200-square-foot home, finished in 2006 sits on an acre overlooking a pond. It was the culmination of three years of meticulous planning by interior designer Emily Summers, ASID; architect Sharon Odum, AIA; builder Diane Cheatham; and the owner. It has five bedrooms, a sleek gourmet kitchen, five full and one half baths, a screened porch, an office, a playroom, and a three-vehicle carport. The home also has a unique entrance through a gabion wall that takes in the pool and fountains. Expansive glass walls maximize the beauty of the treed lot and pond, and evoke the impression that every room—even the back patio—is floating. Glass-walled hallways bridge the living and service wings to the entertainment wing. The master suite features a huge tub with an exterior view and large rainfall shower/sauna, which provides a courtyard view and opens to a private exterior patio. The home is a rare display of detailed contemporary design. Ellen Terry, founder of Ellen Terry Realtors. 214-572-1357, 214-727-6767.
