Fossil creative director Patrick Conner and his partner, television host and radio personality Chris Jagger, have put their 1960s modern home on the market, and it's everything you'd expect from an owner with an eye for design.
Built in 1967, the home at 6876 Spring Valley Rd. was taken to the studs for a complete remodel in 2014 and is now a study in minimalist design. The owners have managed to perfect the "less is more" approach by allowing features like Italian Porcelanosa tile, reclaimed cedar, and original stonework to take center stage, rather than cluttering the space with unnecessary furniture and decor.
The 5,206-square-foot home offers five bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, and three living areas. There are also four fireplaces and a three-car garage — but who's counting? Tech types will appreciate the fact that this an Elan Smart Home, meaning you can control things like audio and Lutron Lighting with a simple swipe on your smart phone.
Sitting on a sprawling 1-acre lot with mature trees, the house also provides a backyard with more than enough space to kick back and relax. Did we mention there's a 500-square-foot outdoor living space with a fireplace and retractable screen and a divine pool?
Oh, and if you have kids, know that the property is located just north of Interstate 635, off Hillcrest Avenue, and it's zoned to the highly desired Richardson schools.
It goes without saying that a property like this comes with a hefty price tag. It's listed with Rogers Healy and Associates for $1,995,000.
