2020 Dream Street

Not one, not two, but our 2020 Dream Street on an exclusive cul-de-sac in Southlake’s Oxford Place will feature three Dream Homes, built on 1-acre lots.

Dream Street

Two decades of Fort Worth Magazine partnerships with luxury builders and subcontractors have produced some of the region’s finest Dream Homes in neighborhoods ranging from Mira Vista to River Crest, Colleyville, and Southlake. For 2020, the magazine for the first time is collaborating with builders and subcontractors to produce a Dream Street — three luxury-built homes on 1-acre lots at the end of a cul-de-sac in Southlake’s exclusive Oxford Place.

Oxford Place is an enclave of 11 private estates, minutes from churches, fine retailers, and restaurants in Southlake Town Square, strong public schools, and Dallas-Fort Worth Airport.

Travis Franks, CEO of Willow Tree Homes, is Oxford Place’s developer and one of the three Dream Street builders, with a planned 7,551-square-foot home at 1105 High Court.

Another of our Dream Street builders is Jon Atwood, CEO of Atwood Custom Homes and the builder of the magazine’s Dream Home in 2015 in Southlake’s Carillon. Atwood is building a 6,600-square-foot home at 1100 High Court. The third Dream Street builder is John Webb, CEO of Heritage Homes, who’s building a 7,271-square-foot home at 1104 High Court. Webb built the magazine’s 2019 Showcase Home in Colleyville.

Each of the builders is teaming with design groups who will produce the house plans and finish the interiors.

For the plans, Willow Tree is teaming with Flynn + Watson Architects of Southlake; Atwood with J Bolton & Associates designers of Southlake; and Webb with the Paragon Design Group designers of Southlake.

For interiors, Willow Tree is teaming with Susan Semmelman Interiors; Semmelman has collaborated on multiple previous Dream Homes as a partner in Grandeur Design and now has her own firm. Atwood is teaming with Maria Mock of Spice Designs, who has worked in interiors for more than 20 years. Webb is partnering with Traci Darden of Elements of Design, who was one of the designers on last year’s Showcase Home and is Heritage Homes’ in-house designer.

As in the magazine’s previous Dream Homes, the builders are teaming with groups of the finest luxury subcontractors in the area to build the Dream Street homes.

The Dream Street homes are slated to be complete in the fall, and the homes will be open for a month of tours in October to benefit the magazine’s official charity, a Wish with Wings, which fulfills wishes for chronically or terminally ill children. Proceeds from ticket sales go to a Wish with Wings.

Franks’ home is a two-story with six baths and two garages, one connected to the home by a porte-cochere. The open floor plan connects the great room, kitchen, formal dining, and breakfast nook, with a prep kitchen for entertaining. The first floor includes a master suite with his-and-hers water closets; guest suite; media and game rooms; and multiple outdoor living spaces, including pool and outdoor kitchen. The second floor features three bedrooms and three baths.

Atwood’s home is a sprawling one-story with two wings, five bedrooms, six baths, and two garages. This home, like the others on our Dream Street, has an open floor plan that links the family room, kitchen, and casual dining, with a hidden prep kitchen. The home has a formal dining room and a wine room, and this wing also contains media and game rooms, study, and two bedrooms. The second wing contains the master suite with his-and-hers closets and two other bedrooms. The home has multiple outdoor settings, including pool and kitchen.

Webb’s home is two-story with five bedrooms, six baths, and two garages. The first floor features an open floor plan connecting the kitchen, family room, and family dining room. For entertaining, the home has a wine room and catering kitchen. Media and game rooms face the backyard and its pool and include a powder bath. Multiple outdoor living settings include a covered terrace with fireplace and porches and outdoor kitchen. The owner’s suite includes a big bath, walk-in closet, and exercise room. The first floor also features a study and guest bedroom with bath. The second floor has three bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths, with living space, and balconies.
