Our own Tom Greico, one of our select CandysDirt-approved homebuilders — we are kind of picky about these guys, and we interview folks they have built homes for — has a home that was recently featured in the Lakewood/East Dallas Advocate. It belongs to Mike and Donna Webster. And since April is Home Tour month in Dallas, we thought you might want to know their gorgeous Tom Greico home was also inspired by the Dallas Modern Home Tour:
The home of Mike and Donna Webster poses on a corner in Lakewood Heights with striking confidence. It has both a simplicity and elegance that mid-century modern architecture seems to capture so well.
The Websters wanted their home to embrace the street yet still offer some privacy. By pushing the front door away from the street, they were able to create a serene courtyard area. “We’ve always wanted a really gracious entrance to the house with a place where we could sit,” Mike explains. The Websters enjoy the view of the courtyard from their formal dining room, which overlooks the yard through a large window wall.Photo by Marissa Robles
When the Websters bought the property three years ago, building such a home wasn’t even on their radar.
“We were going for more of a rustic modern, Hill Country style,” Donna says, “but it took us a while to develop the floor plans, so we started to go to home tours. We went on the Dallas Modern Home Tour, and we fell in love with modern architecture. So we switched gears.”
Pretty, no? We’re getting with Tom for some specifics. See how important our home tours are?
