With its boldly colored glass walls, sleek silhouette and museum-inspired touches, it’s impossible to miss the house on the corner of Milam Street and Garrett Avenue, within steps of hopping Henderson Avenue.

Now this showstopper in one of Dallas’ most sought-after neighborhoods is for sale — yes, for the very first time. The original owners, who are in the architectural and design fields themselves, built the 2,438-square-foot home in 2008, and only now do curious passersby and serious shoppers have the chance to picture themselves living there.

Real estate junkie Candy Evans toured the house and offered her first-hand impressions over on Candy’s Dirt.

Briggs-Freeman Sotheby’s agent Robby Sturgeon has the listing for this open-concept contemporary treasure, which features two bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths. A garage/workshop is attached, and the generous outdoor area plays off the home’s fun personality with a colored fence that’s in line with the the property’s bright hues.

Inside, however, the atmosphere is calm and tranquil, with museum-smooth white walls and lighting designed to highlight art just so. Polished concrete anchors the first floor, while Brazlian Koa hardwoods run throughout the second.

Ann Sacks tile encases the master bathroom, which also features a walk-through shower. The second bath boasts a tub in an unexpected octagonal shape, and both bedrooms are roomy and light-filled.

The kitchen is a cook’s dream, with commercial-grade appliances and walnut trim and accent walls.

So how much will this home set you back? $779, 000.
