It doesn't take a real estate mogul to realize that something special is going on at 5409 Melrose Ave. in Dallas' ever-blossoming Knox Henderson-Lower Greenville corridor. And that something is the sophisticated yet totally modern home that is currently for sale or lease.
This 2014 Pierce Jordan construction was designed by a commercial architect, which makes it stand out among other new-ish constructions in the area. From the museum finish walls to the commercial grade doors and windows, this space is spectacular.
"The center glass courtyard, high windows, and floor-to-ceiling glass on the second level buck the builder trends to fill out square footage and save money on materials," listing agent Kyle Baugh says. "On a nice day, you can turn off all the lights in the house all day long and not skip a beat."
There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms; however, it's easy to tell that the open-concept kitchen is where all of the time is going to spent hanging out in this haute home. The Valcucine cabinets provide clean lines for a minimalistic look, and the Miele appliances are leaps and bounds better than your standard stuff. You won't even have to replace the countertops as soon as you move in because they are already the Cesarstone quartz that everyone loves.
The home is sitting at a five-way intersection near other uniquely modern and significant homes. Could this be foreshadowing the intersection you find yourself in in your own life? To stay in the 'burbs or be bold and move to the city? To continue spending money on Uptown rent or blaze a new trail on Melrose Avenue?
"I foresee a savvy urban professional moving into this home, potentially even an international buyer," Baugh says. "The current owner is originally from Bulgaria, by way of San Francisco. Many buyers in urban markets like San Fran, Chicago, or New York appreciate the use of light and living space. They are also drawn to the high-level modern elements in the home."
But if you are on the market for your parents or your in-laws, don't count them out, either.
"We've also have had lots of interest with empty nesters and baby boomers looking to downsize to live 'cool' in the city," the agent says.
This luxurious listing is currently being offered for $799,000 or for lease for $5,000 a month. Liking what you see? There is an open house on Saturday, January 25 from 1-3 pm.
