Originally built as a cottage house in the early 1940's, this two-story home underwent a complete interior and exterior renovation that entirely transformed the style and appearance of the structure. The work was conducted in three phases, and the family lived in the home during the renovations.
The original front entry and porch was enclosed, and a new entry, with wrap-around porch and extended deck, was added on the west side. The two gable roofs that faced north were changed to hips to de-emphasize their original intent. A curved Pennsylvania slate walkway now leads visitors to the new entry where they are greeted by a richly textured, hand-crafted cedar front door. Massive cedar post and beams add to the ambiance of the prairie style architecture and continues the theme to the back entry.
Selected interior walls were removed, and the home now enjoys many spacious and warmly lighted rooms with red oak hardwood floors. A master crafted staircase leads to the second floor. Other interior amenities include Berber carpets, a custom built entertainment center, custom built kitchen cabinets, 4-panel solid wood doors, crown molding, granite counter-tops with tile back-splash and contrasting inlays, marble tile in the master bath and shower, recessed lighting throughout the home, operating Velux skylights in the upstairs bedrooms, and Lincoln replacement wood sash insulated windows.
The home is prominently located across from Southern Methodist University in Highland Park, Texas.
