Dallas Home Tour Inspired Tom Greico-Built Home in Lakewood Heights

Share News:

Tom Greico home AdvocateOur 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?

    You can’t go wrong with Tom Greico. I have know Tom for many years. He is active in the Dallas Builders Association where he keeps up with trends, materials and construction techniques through their education programs and working with other members. As an Architect I can say he designs and builds fine homes. Way to go, Tom.

    Modern style and architecture is one thing…nothing was mentioned about sustainability and the energy efficiency of the home. Is there going to be a follow up on such?

  3. Kelly Logsdon Rush says
