Home tour season is upon us, and we couldn’t be happier. We hope you enjoyed yesterday’s sneak peek from the Dallas Modern Mile Home Tour. Today, we’re bringing you a second one.
“The Y House” at 10209 Rosser Rd. in Northwest Dallas has an unusual shape—thus its nickname. Designed and built by architect Gordon Nichols in 1954, the house is marvelously midcentury, with a low-slung roof, vaulted ceilings with light coves that repeat in a specific 5/5 module, and an inner courtyard and back garden. Visitors on Saturday’s Dallas Modern Mile Home Tour will appreciate the pops of retro color, and organic expansion, which brought the home to 2,435 square feet, but retained the integrity of the original design and overall style.
We sat down with owner Brandon Emanuel to talk about the home’s distinguishing characteristics, renovations, design schemes, and his family’s plans for the home’s future.
