The renovation of the midcentury modern at 2606 Heatherwood Drive was thoughtful, comprehensive and completed in expert fashion. You would expect no less from the current owner, who specializes in architectural design.
The stylish update begins outdoors. Just beyond an impressively large tree and past twin plant beds, the turquoise front door pops against the light exterior; the door includes frosted glass that creatively displays the house number.
Step inside to an entryway with formal dining to the left. You’ll immediately notice the artistic light fixture, one of many mixed-metal custom designs throughout the home. On the opposite side of an art display wall, you’ll find an open-concept gourmet kitchen with a large waterfall center island that can easily seat five; there is a separate breakfast area as well. Across from the island is the high-end range with a sleek vent hood, flanked by two large rectangular windows that let in natural light and create a balancing effect. Underneath it all sits 12 deep drawers to hide gadgets, in keeping with the kitchen’s clean lines. The large adjacent living area includes a real-wood fireplace and looks to the outdoors.
“The two incredible outdoor areas are totally separate,” says listing agent Kimberly Ashmore, a senior vice president with Allie Beth Allman & Associates. “One is a Zen garden that can easily house 30 of your closest friends.” That space is custom lit, covered with geometric pavers and able to accommodate multiple seating areas. Then there’s the backyard. “That area is very large and spacious, and it has string lights. You could easily entertain in that area as well,” points out Ashmore.
The primary suite includes a custom closet system and a double shower. Two additional bedrooms and a second full bath round out the home. A climate-controlled garage, with partially windowed doors, includes a mirrored wall for an in-home yoga studio or gym. Aside from its beautiful midcentury style, there’s not a part of the residence (originally built in 1962) that hasn’t been modernized.
“The plumbing, the electrical, the HVAC, the custom lighting inside and out, the roof, windows — when I say everything has been redone, I mean everything,” notes Ashmore.
Located on a corner lot of .21 acres with mature trees, the Heatherwood Drive house sits in the heart of a neighborhood known for its walk-and-bike proximity to White Rock Lake and Casa Linda shopping, yet with an easy commute to Downtown Dallas.
“Out-of-town buyers from both coasts are flocking to this East Dallas neighborhood because it’s walkable,” says Ashmore, who adds that the 1,880-square-foot home is ideal for empty nesters or a small family. “It’s next door to a private Montessori school, and Bishop Lynch is right around the corner.”
2606 Heatherwood Drive is listed for $699,000.
