H omes are our sanctuaries where we l i v e , e a t , sleep and play — the intersection of our realities and our wildest dreams. For a lucky few, the home is a dynamic, living work of art, constantly changing in response to its habitants. Artist Carly Allen Martin's idyllic Lakewood home, recently listed at 6621 Northridge Drive in Dallas is just that. Offered for $2.295 million and listed by Ryan Streiff of Dave Perry Miller Real Estate, the home is nothing short of a dream, from its intentional layout to the thoughtful finish- outs. Located in a coveted cul-de-sac in the heart of Lakewood, the 3,668-square- foot home has four bedrooms and five baths — but that's just the beginning. With artists as its owners, this home has a personality all its own. Carly Allen Martin is a contemporary artist best known for her use of color. She studied at Santa Reparata International School of Art in Florence; The European Academy of Art in Trier, Germany; and Aoyama Gakiun University in Tokyo. She also holds a BFA in painting from Texas Christian University. Her work is collected both privately and publicly around the world. Public collections include BBVA Compass Bank, Texas Oncology and Texas Christian University. She is currently gallery-represented in Texas, California, Maryland, P e n n s y l v a n i a , C a n a d a , and Washington, D.C., and her work can be viewed at The house at 6621 Northridge Drive is an extension of her art. Allen Martin and family had been living in the Devonshire neighborhood for nearly a decade when they decided to embark on the journey of building a new home, but they struggled to find the ideal lot. Ryan Streiff of Perry-Miller Streiff Group (and current agent for 6621 Northridge Drive) stepped in and found the perfect off- market, elevated, oversized lot in the heart of Lakewood. Once secured, Allen Martin worked with Ross Ikemire of Ikemire Architects to design the home. Ikemire recommended Rosewood Home Builders to make the project come to life. Allen Martin is an avid lover of both Santa Barbara and New Orleans architecture. She wanted to design a home that blended the two cities near and dear to her heart. "Ross and I would sketch out ideas," she says, "then I would come home and design and adjust layouts on parchment paper. It was an exhilarating experience, taking my passion for drawing and sketching and applying it to our dream home."
