At 51 Vanguard Way inside Urban Reserve is this gorgeous Lionel Morrison original, says Alan Smith, who is listing this phenomenal property for $819,900. It’s an architectural gem designed by one of Dallas’ own preeminent modern architects, he adds, and it has a stunning lot just off of White Rock Creek Trail. You can see this beauty for yourself on Sunday, Nov. 16, from 1:30 to 3 p.m.

“The soaring ceilings and natural light of this two-story home highlight the exceptional museum quality detailing throughout. It has been featured in numerous magazines,” Smith said, adding that it was also featured in the 2007 AIA Dallas Tour of Homes. Not only that, but you’re in great company within Urban Reserve, which has some amazing homes designed and constructed by leading regional architects and builders.

The materials are on par with the breathtaking design. You get beautiful Calcutta Gold marble counters, Carrera marble flooring, rift-cut white oak cabinetry, as well as other well-thought-out interior fixtures such as chrome hardware and plumbing and space-saving pocket doors.

This home shows so well with two bedrooms, two full and one half bath, and almost 2,800 square feet that feels much larger thanks to the tall ceilings and open spaces. “The sophisticated and elegant two-story design rendered in a hand-troweled white stucco exterior with museum quality interior finishes providing the perfect palette for any collection,” Smith says. “Diamond polished concrete floors, soaring windows and dramatic museum lighting provide a breathtaking backdrop for any gathering from family and friends for holidays to a benefit for your favorite charity.”

And when you’re not entertaining, you can enjoy the master suite which is absolutely divine. This retreat features interlocking sculptural panels behind the bed, adding a wonderful Zen-like texture and warmth to the room, evoking the feeling of a garden of raked sand. There’s also a multi-colored LED lighting system, Smith says, which can provide a soothing nighttime ambiance. You can also take in the view of the courtyard from the oversized glass doors, where you’ll find a private spa.
