MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE 2017 HOMES:
Single Family Home on the Creek, Rock Creek Drive
Starting as a sketch on a napkin, this stunning 5,400 square foot Industrial Contemporary home features 3 bedroom and 5 baths. Modern, different yet inviting and cozy, situated on a tree lined ravine lot, this dream home was designed by architect, Mark Barry, along with RPCD, Inc. as builder and interior designer. The use of natural elements brings the outdoors in and plays off the modern vibe to create a welcoming and comfortable environment. The home features several unique works of art including Russian born artist, Oleg Zhivetin and Dallas based abstract artist, Jo Mattison.
Single Family Home on the Creek, Turtle Creek Drive
This secluded 3,948 square foot home was built in 1965 for Miss Geraldine Sporleder, a Dallas interior designer. Architect, Downing A.Thomas, described this 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home as “completely individual”, built on a sloping piece of land that once backed up to the Katy railroad, now the Katy Trail. In October of 1966 the American Institute of Architects awarded the architect and home a plaque for the best modern architecture. The natural light from all sides paired with abstract modern artworks which include Joan Mitchell, Jasper Johns and Williem de Koonig lend to a playful “tree house feel” which is perfect for both entertainment and relaxation for home owners Blake and Tom Stephenson.
11th floor of 3525 Turtle Creek, 3525 Turtle Creek Blvd.
In celebration of 3525’s 60th anniversary, 3525 will feature the spectacular 2 bedroom, 2 bath home of Brian and Leslie Purdy. Taken back to the studs, this originally traditional home was transformed by architect, Joshua Nimmo, and interior designer, Brant McFarlain, into an airy, light filled, modern space created for the empty nester media executive and his glass artist wife. The open floor plan allows for daily use of the 2,000+ square feet while enjoying sweeping views of Turtle Creek and downtown Dallas. One of the highlights of the 14 month renovation was the removal of the ceiling to expose the original 1957 cement beams. The warm contemporary interior is accented with several stunning glass pieces created byt the homeowner as well as artifacts from their extensive travels.

This 2,500 square foot classic contemporary is located on the 16th floor of the prestigious Claridge. With the focus on incorporating the stunning views of North Dallas, Architect, Michael Lyons, AIA, and designer, Betty Glaspy, combine traditional with soft contemporary design and furnishings to create a visually open and spacious environment. The art throughout this 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home is a collection of pieces from artists who are personally known to the home owner, Janet Ward, including renowned Texas bluebonnet artist, LaJuan Schlegel.
5th floor of Park Towers, 3310 Fairmount St.
Nestled in the treetop canopy of its park-like setting on Fairmount, this timely 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment overlooks both the serene swimming-pool terrace and the Katy Trail. This space was designed by home owner, Mike Wilkins, Vice-President at CallisonRTKL, to complement the mid-sixties modernist style of the building as well as to support a relaxed and comfortable lifestyle. It plays light against dark, hard against soft, texture against sleekness, suede against linen. Modern furnishings and art collected over several decades play off newer pieces and recent additions to the collection. The design goal of creating a space that is not only beautiful but also livable has certainly been achieved.
