P

roperties lining parkland in Dallas’ University Park don’t come up for sale that often. So, when a nearby family of five living in a home with a small yard heard about the opportunity, they jumped at the chance to fulfill a long-held wish to build their dream home. The park setting inspired architect David Stocker’s design, which includes huge, floor-to-ceiling windows spanning both floors.

Designer Leslie Jenkins, meanwhile, infused the interiors with serene colors, dramatic lighting and abstract art. “We were trying to marry the modern and the traditional, to give this house a more timeless look,” Jenkins says.

As the design came together, the focus remained on creating a seamless indoor/outdoor flow: The L-shaped home embraces the backyard and pool terrace, with doors in nearly every room leading outside. Builder Robert Elliott then created a sliding gate to open the yard into the sprawling park with its fountain, fishing ponds and soccer fields. “It’s literally an extension of our backyard,” the owner says, though staying inside is also a treat: “Amid all the craziness of all these little boys around me, a soft palette is soothing.”
