Nothing defined an era more than the 14-year run of the television series Dallas. The entire world was caught up in the complicated lives of the Ewing clan, and all we wanted to know was “Who shot J.R?” I remember traveling in London at the time, and the moment people found out I was from Dallas, that’s all they could talk about.

Nothing before or after the original series has created that sort of international interest. It cast our fair city in a brighter light and made everyone fall in love with the idea of “bigger is better.” Big cars, bigger hair and of course, the biggest houses. The infamous Dallas TV home of the Ewing clan is one of the biggest, one of the best, and it’s for sale. Allie Beth Allman has it listed for $12.95 million.

What is it about a Georgian house that offers instant appeal and imparts an immediate sense of gracious living? History for one. Georgian architecture has been around since the 1700s, and some of the most recognizable American institutions have been built in this style. From Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello estate to Yale University, the style instills a sense of stability and strength. Our Monday Morning Millionaire is a Highland Park Georgian at 3911 Gillon Avenue that is perfect example of this architectural style’s virtues.

With their ordered facades, perfect proportions and simple elegance of design, Georgian homes have always stood for stability and prestige. This Highland Park Georgian gem at 4529 North Versailles Avenue is a shining example of that traditional, classic look that has such a universal appeal.
