First of all, LOCATION! 4557 Belfort Avenue in Highland Park EAST of the Dallas North Tollway. Can you find a sweeter spot? Then you have this stunning, creamy, ivy-covered charmer with a garden courtyard that has been remodelled and redecorated by award-winning interior designer extraordinaire Emily Summers. Summers, along with Dallas design legend Laura Hunt, is one of the very few designers in town to have been named to the top 100 best designers in the world by Architectural Digest numerous times. Both are well loved by AD’s haute editor, Paige Rense. Summers is also the only Dallas designer to have served on the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation from 2002 to 2006, by Presidential appointment, from President George W. Bush. She served as Chair for the Communication, Education, and Outreach Committee. Her signature work has been said to possess “clarity of vision” and the resulting spaces “luxurious yet restrained”.
