Peek inside a minimalistic modern Dallas house designed by hometown architecture firm Bodron Fruit
This three bedroom, two bathroom, and half bathroom home in Bluffview was designed by the Dallas architectural firm Bodron Fruit. The house, completed in 2014, is located on a property that is surrounded by greenery and can be seen from the inside through numerous windows.
Architect Svend Fruit said the design was intentionally minimalist and without excess over an area of 3,312 square feet.
“It should be really easy,” said Fruit. He noted that the original owners – and those who commissioned the house – didn’t need that much space because it was an empty nest house.
The house gives a symmetrical and clean first impression from the entrance. It was built from a combination of block limestone and steel-framed glass walls.
While the exterior of the house features subtle, cooler tones, the interior features complementary materials in warmer tones. Wood floors and built-in wood accents add to the white stone and walls throughout the home.
The kitchen, dining room and living room are part of a large room with a view of the rear terrace and the back yard. The house sits on 0.56 acres.
“We created a number of small courtyards that you can look into so you don’t look at the neighbors on the sides,” said Fruit.
The back yard and property have been kept natural in terms of landscaping.
The single story home has a master bedroom that is surrounded by windows overlooking the wooded property. The main bathroom has a large bath with shower and toilet on either side. The warm cabinets contrast with the cool tones of the bathroom floor.
There is also an attached two car garage and covered terrace to the rear of the house.
The house at 4603 Bluffview Blvd. is listed by Frank Purcell of Allie Beth Allman and Associates for $ 2.895 million.
