Everyone benefits differently from travel experiences. For builder Pierce Jordan, exploring the world means surveying some of the world's greatest architecture, both domestic and abroad, and using it as inspiration for a project right here in Dallas.
Jordan created these two modern single-family attached units at 5409 and 5411 Melrose Ave. Although 5409 is under contract, 5411 is still on the market for $740,000 and looking for a bold owner.
Agent Chad Meadors of Clay Stapp + Co says this a home for someone who has an appreciation for quality and attention to detail. It's for someone who "doesn’t mind pioneering a neighborhood."
That neighborhood is Vickery Park, where home values are rising, and Henderson Avenue shops and restaurants are just minutes away from your front door. Downtown is a short drive away too.
This three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom home has 2,606 square feet of possibility. It's a blank canvas waiting for the owner's personal touch.
Worldly influences are noted from the moment you walk into the kitchen, including Valcucine cabinets imported from Italy and Porcelanosa tiles from Spain. Other high-end finishes include Miele appliances, floating-edge quartz counters and Moen fixtures.
The remainder of the first floor, which is paved with polished concrete, comprises a dining room, study, living room and half bath. The 10-foot ceilings and the strategic placement of the windows keep the space feeling open.
Head upstairs via floating staircase and you'll find three large bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The highlight is the large master suite in the back, which features his-and-hers closets and a double vanity in the master bathroom. The upstairs also houses the utility room.
Just when you think you've seen it all on the inside of this property, an interior glassed-in courtyard ensures that your dinner parties are the talk of the town.
