Elegance and comfort can be found throughout the home, each room blending the two elements seamlessly. The seller, who travelled and worked around the world, wanted to bring pieces of each culture that they saw and kept in mind into the design of this home. From the Greco-Roman inspired front entry, to a Thai culture-inspired kitchen and family room, the story of each room can be felt and admired throughout.
The chef’s kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances and boasts custom-painted kitchen cabinets and a full wet bar. Don’t miss little details in the home, such as the wet bar that features accent pieces from Walt Disney World’s Swiss Family Robinson’s Tree House.
“A part of the classic style of this immaculate home is the ability to adapt the space to your desire. No detail was overlooked, from the luxury features to the graceful and seamless connection of the interior through the sublime exterior spaces,” says listing agent Mark Bradford with Coldwell Banker Realty in Dallas-Fort Worth.
On the first floor, the living room and Egyptian-inspired master bedroom connect to the outdoor area, which is perfect for entertaining guests.

The top pool trends from Mountainscapers Landscape & Design are in for this summer, 2017. Mountainscapers offers a variety of services for new or contemporary pools, such as waterfalls, fire fountains, and flowing creeks, to name a few.
An upgrade from the ever popular infinity edge design, the knife-edge shares the same negative drop-off characteristics without the necessity of an overhanging ledge. Ideal for every backyard and even smaller pools, knife-edge design can accommodate any flat-surfaced area.
LED lights can push a pool over the top and are very suitable for swimming after dusk. Lighting systems can even be programed to change color, depending on the look one desires.
Fire and water features are a vivid addition and can add depth to a backyard atmosphere, while setting the tone of the landscape. Fully functional, and optimal for warming up after a swim, these features enhance and accentuate the characteristics of the pool.
Bringing the indoors outdoors is a a very popular trend this year. Outdoor kitchens, seating areas and areas to entertain and relax in are must-haves for a modern and engaging backyard.
