This 1950s Dallas home has been remodeled and redesigned with a sleek, contemporary look
This mid-century Dallas home has an updated look thanks to a New York designer. The house was built in 1958 and updated this year.
Designer Janet Goldschmidt, who lives on New York’s Long Island but has family in Dallas, said the home’s original design caught her eye.
âI loved it because it was a beautiful mid-century design,â Goldschmidt said.
Goldschmidt worked alongside her husband Ricardo Goldschmidt to develop the property, she said.
The home at 11348 Valleydale Drive has five bedrooms, four full baths, and one half bath over 4,380 square feet. The interior design has a classic black and white palette that gives a contemporary feel. The vibrant color palette is evident throughout the home, and the clean lines demonstrate Goldschmidt’s penchant for elegant design.
The main living space of the house has an open plan feel with a unique feature: glass doors that separate the space. The living room is just inside the main entrance to the house and the dining room shares space. In the middle, glass doors separate the living and dining room from the kitchen. Goldschmidt said it was an intentional element.
âThanks to COVID, we’ve all realized that not all open concept is good,â she said.
Glass doors make it easy to close each space, preventing kitchen smells from transferring from room to room and adding a degree of privacy without the spaces feeling confined.
The kitchen is spacious and has a large counter island with seating. There is another living space across from the kitchen which has easy access to the patio.
The master suite of the house has two wardrobes and a large bathroom with two sinks and a separate tub and shower. The house has one floor, so all the bedrooms are on the ground floor.
Outside, the house’s covered terrace offers space for entertaining with an outdoor kitchen and a swimming pool. The house also has a garage for two cars.
Goldschmidt said she and her husband have invested in four more properties in Dallas that they are working on together.
âOne house led to another,â she said.
The house is listed for $ 2,100,000 by Lauren Savariego and Julie Haymann of Allie Beth Allman & Associates. He is currently awaiting contract, according to the listing.
