Million Dollar Listing
Turtle Creek townhome wows with midcentury appeal
When a home has a price tag upwards of $1 million, the pressure’s on to truly wow potential buyers. Listed at $1.65 million, the townhome at 3514 Springbrook St. definitely doesn't have trouble in that department.
Let’s start with location. Located in the tony Turtle Creek neighborhood, minutes from Uptown and downtown, the three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath townhouse is also steps from the Katy Trail.
Second is curb appeal. Designed by architect Cliff Welch in 2007, the home’s modern exterior makes a striking first impression. The entrance is set back along the side of the property, maintaining a clean (not to mention nicely illuminated) look, thanks in part to a wood-wrapped second-floor balcony.
Then there’s the interior. Inside the bold orange front door, a soaring two-story entry and dining space sets the tone for what’s to come: 3,069 square feet of impeccable midcentury design. In that foyer, exposed brick, blond wood floors, and lots (and lots) of paneless windows create a welcoming space. These design elements carry through the home for a cohesive, considered feel.
Sliding glass doors open the dining space to the outside for indoor-outdoor entertaining and dining. And then there’s that show-stopping suspended staircase and mammoth chandelier. Every detail is perfection.
The open floor plan flows straight into the kitchen, which is outfitted by Bulthaup and features Wolf double ovens, a SubZero refrigerator and freezer drawers, and an industrial gas cooktop. As if that weren’t enough, there’s also a 72-bottle wine cooler with dual temperature controls for oenophiles.
The nearby living space looks minimalist and clean thanks to a wall of mahogany cabinetry, while a second living area on the other side of the front door makes for a cozy library or TV room.
Head upstairs, past dramatic white gallery walls and lighting, to see the three bedrooms. Currently utilized as an office and a study, the larger of the two guest rooms features a sizable balcony and a wall of open shelving. The spacious master bedroom also features a balcony — one of four total outdoor living areas — and an en-suite bathroom with Caeserstone counters, a skylight, custom built-ins, and a large walk-in shower and closet.
