This Contemporary estate is located at 4130 Cochran Chapel Road in Dallas, TX. It was built in 2002 and was patterned after concepts of Richard Meier, architect of the Getty Museum in L.A. It boasts over 8,000 square feet of living space and is made of 71,000 pounds of steel and 6,000 square feet of glass. It offers 5 bedrooms, 6 full and 2 half bathrooms, limestone and maples floors, 2-story great room, open concept kitchen and family room, home theater, billiards room, gym, swimming pool with spa, 3 beautifully lush acres and a 4-car garage. It is listed at $7,499,990. I for one hate the floors in this home and everything is a little outdated, but the grounds are quite nice.

    This is not what I could consider a well-done contemporary. It’s missing the detailing that could make it something special. It looks more like a cold art gallery than a home. The wood-paneled corner of the family room was a start at some interesting detailing, but then it didn’t go anywhere. “Patterned after concepts of Richard Meier” is very different than being designed by Richard Meier.

    It’s really a beautiful house. They did a great job of siting it on the lot. It has a nice interplay with the outside. Personally, I’m not crazy about the master bath.

    As I recall, it’s actually a remodeling. It was published several years ago. Maybe in D Home or one of the regional shelter magazines. I can’t find the cite for that–it’s be wonderful if somebody else could.

    True, it’s not a Richard Meier–but you couldn’t touch a Richard Meier on 3 acres even in Dallas at that list price.

    While it isn’t the most horrific white prison/elementary school I have seen, it is far from nice (in my opinion). The exterior isn’t a complete loss, but I hate how the two ends of the home are windowless on the first floor – looks like an honest to god prison. Inside is boring. The first thing I would do is rip out the current floors – dirty and dingy as-is. Perhaps some nice veined marble would spruce up the place. Hate the wood in the dining room. Living room looks nice, and the pool area looks great with the lush landscaping. I think it’s pretty cool that there’s a creek in the backyard.

      Hang on to your hat, Dan…..I actually agree with you on a number of points! The house is ENTIRELY waaay too white, the front exterior is awful due to those “faux garage door” indentations on the walls, and even the inside of the house is waaay too white………GAG. Needs COLOR desperately, and the master bath is entirely too “avant garde” or whatever for my tastes. Best thing about it is definitely the lot, gardens & pool.

    Dan…you speak true! This is a horrible house! Too much prison/elementary school. And architectsdaughter has been smoking something BAD to consider this a “beautiful house” c’mon, lady it’s BORING!!! Lets not bring Richard Meier into the conversation. I think he would GAG!!! And me? in my tiny apartment? I can still say what I believe. Just in case there’s some critic watching from the side-lines. Pwfft…;)
