New Build in an Old Neighborhood Is the Perfect Dallas Combination

You get all the timeless charm without the hassle of things falling apart.

The situation is all too familiar. You’re in the market for a family home and have to make a choice. Do you want to live in a great neighborhood in an old home or do you want to live in an area that might be a little less established and enjoy the benefits of a new build? This 2020 construction by Nichols and Judy Custom Builders allows you to have both—a new construction that also happens to be in a storied North Dallas neighborhood. The best of both worlds can officially be yours.

Walking into the home you are taken by how the windows and doors bring in the most magnificent light. There is a formal dining space and an oversized office at the front of the home that leads to a truly stunning kitchen that any chef would drool over. The space has marble countertops and backsplash Sub Zero and Wolf appliances, an ice maker, and a second dishwasher. Custom glass front lighted cabinetry provides beautiful storage options. Trust us when we say that people always end up congregating in your kitchen regardless of how big your home is, so you might as well make sure that yours is equipped with the best, right?

Another fun feature of this home comes in the form of a slider door that brings the outdoors in and allows guests to truly enjoy the bottom level in its entirety. It seamlessly connects the indoor living area to a patio area complete with a fireplace, fan, and a remote-controlled phantom screen. It is the best of indoor-outdoor living and something that we have learned in quarantine is so, so essential to our daily happiness. Dallas has a lot of great weather, and it is a shame to miss a moment of it. Speaking of, the backyard oasis also has a custom pool and spa and a built-in BBQ area with a grill and built-in refrigerator.

Downstairs also has a grand primary bedroom with an equally grand bathroom and closet. The closet, in fact, has a built-in vanity that allows for the fashionista of the home to sit a spell, coffee in hand, while getting ready for the exciting day ahead. The downstairs also has a guest room with an en suite bathroom. There’s a lot of space, however, after touring we are confused about how we ever lived without all of it.

Upstairs is where the fun happens. There is a media room and game room with extensive media built-ins. Whether you are watching a movie or the big game, this house is the perfect place to cozy up and enjoy. There are also three additional, oversized guest rooms with their own bath. We are talking large enough to be a primary room, but away from the hustle and bustle of the house so that your guests or your teenagers can feel like they have some private space.

This home is calling and all you have to do is answer. Will you?
