Situated in North Dallas on a little more than half an acre, this contemporary build boasts a linear and symmetrical design with colorful details throughout.
The home is a six-bedroom, six-bathroom and three-half-bathroom design that was built in 2009. The linear and contemporary design affords plenty of opportunities for floor-to-ceiling windows and natural lighting. The property is also gated for privacy and safety.
At the front of the home, a large dining room is big enough to host a party of 18 people. The dining table centers around a unique, contemporary light fixture by Cantoni.
With high ceilings throughout, the living rooms are spacious and expansive. Accented by a large floor-to-ceiling window, one of the living spaces has a fireplace. Nearby, there’s a bar with counter seating for entertaining with an ice machine that makes the coveted “Sonic ice.”
Listing agent Megan Stern said the kitchen is meant for entertaining because it’s so large.
“There’s two of everything,” she said, from appliances to the two islands at the center of the kitchen.
With high-quality appliances, including a built-in Miele coffee maker, the home boasts the type of expansive kitchen that corresponds to a home valued at nearly $3 million.
There’s a media room on the first floor, and the pantry can double as a storm room when needed.
Only one bedroom is on the first floor, and it functions as a guest room.
The primary suite is on the second floor and overlooks the surrounding treetops. The attached bathroom has luxurious features like a steam shower, a separate bathtub, dual sinks and two toilets. There’s an attached study next to the primary suite that has built-in cabinets and desk space.
One of the six bedrooms is a separate quarters that, though connected to the house, has a private entrance.
There’s an exercise room upstairs as well, with an attached bathroom. The home has space for an elevator, though it has not been installed.
Outside, there’s an additional 1,000 square feet of living space. A pool and spa take up half of the backyard, and the other half is devoted to open green space and a putting green area. There’s a bathroom in the house near the patio that’s designated as a “pool bath” as well.
The entire home is automated. Even the fireplace in one of the living areas can be operated from a cellphone. The backyard is also equipped with a mosquito-misting system.
6517 Dykes Way is listed for $2,950,000 by Megan Stern of Dave Perry-Miller.
