Modern Marvel Will Make Even the Most Traditional Dallasite Drool

But seriously, how does one pass up this pristine pool?

Driving up to 11719 Pine Forest Drive, you might have a sneaking suspicion that this North Dallas home is special. From the manicured lawn to the large circle drive and even the precise landscape lighting, this home has curb appeal down to a science. And lucky for buyers that tend to favor a modern home, this Forest Place pad is just as fabulous when you go inside.

The first things you are sure to notice when you walk in are the sky-high ceilings and the floor to ceiling windows. If you didn’t collect art before, you are destined to begin when you are handed the keys of this casa that was obviously built to house beautiful works on its walls. The home is also ideal for entertaining with two living areas and a gourmet kitchen that is great for gathering.

Unique features throughout make this property stand out from the rest. Custom curtains that would cost you thousands (yes, thousands) help you set the design tone of each room and a mix of both slate, wood, and carpet floors give each area of the home a distinctly different feel. The office is also a major perk for either the work-from-home parent or a child who is busy with virtual learning and needs some peace and quiet.

The master retreat relaxes you immediately with its Zen views of the backyard. Remember those floor to ceiling windows we loved? Yep, that continues in the master. The master bathroom has storage upon storage and ample space for two to get ready each day. A cozy fireplace makes you that much more likely to skip a fancy date night out and cuddle up in bed to read a book or watch a movie.

But it is the outdoor living spaces that we really think will sell this home. There are not one but two yards, an outdoor kitchen, and a lovely lap-sized, heated pool that features a spa and wet bar. And while you don’t have to be a real estate aficionado to know that pools are a dime a dozen in North Texas, this particular pool looks like a functional piece of art. Is going for a test swim acceptable at showings? We’re asking for a friend, of course.
