High Caliber Home of the Week: Marvelous Midcentury Modern in Lake Highlands


10741 Eden Roc Back

We know that there are a ton of midcentury modern homes in Sylvania Dells, an area of Lake Highlands where architecture is eye candy. We featured a unique listing from Ed Murchison just a short jog from today’s High-Caliber Home of the Week, and it was a midcentury modern with colored paneling and a unique floor plan, too.

However, 10741 Eden Roc surpasses all expectations with more that 4,000 square feet of wide open space on an acre lot. This home has been painstakingly preserved, with gorgeous expansive floors and the coolest open concept. You know, Realtors often put the words “MUST SEE!” in a listing description, and I usually just glaze over it. For this home, though, with its incredible windows, amazing back deck, and cool master suite, I really, REALLY want to see it!

All of these things — top-of-the-line design, amazing architecture, and perfectly preserved interiors — make this a high-caliber home. A home like this deserves a lender that’s going to look out for you and make sure that your dream becomes a reality. That’s what Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans does with her clients.

And a gorgeous one at that. I think I’ve found my dream home, folks! This beautiful Cliff Welch-designed home in the Cloisters is perfect! You’re close to the lake, you get Lakewood schools (DISD), and it’s an incredibly private enclave!

I am a sucker for modern design, especially homes that have been designed with their surroundings in mind. This home is split into two segments: Living and Sleeping. The living quarters are actually on the second floor of the main home, which results in a treehouse feel. The floor-to-ceiling windows with views of mature trees just outside the living room are swoon-worthy. So is that fabulous fireplace!

Other wonderful things about this house include: An amazing chef’s kitchen with Miele, Sub Zero, and Bosch appliances. It’s a super-sleek galley-style creation with dark grey cabinets and gleaming white counters.

There are four bedrooms, five-and-a-half baths, a media room, a music room, and a two-car garage accessed by a sunken driveway. The sparkling terrazzo floors go from wall-to-wall, giving all 4,835 square feet of this home a continuous, open feel.

What I am truly in love with is the back of the house. The rear yard, which you can access through the second floor via a beautiful spiral staircase, is one of those places that will get you nominated for hosting charity luncheons year after year. I love how the trees surrounding the home were kept intact, especially the large evergreen notched into the patio. The glass railing surrounding the terrace is beautiful, too.

There’s so much to love about this house, and the price tag shows it — 4755 Chapel Hill, marketed by David Collier of David Griffin & Company Realtors, is priced at $2.95 million. I guess it will have to remain a dream home …
