Cliff May East Dallas Home Leads the Way Among Our Dallas Open Houses |

We do the hard work every week to find the most wonderful open houses every week. Every Thursday, we pick three fabulous open houses in Dallas (and the ‘burbs from time to time) you shouldn’t miss.

One of the houses in our Open Houses of the Week this week is a Cliff May-designed beauty. 

“[That house] was designed by famed architect Cliff May in 1956 and was featured in the Casa View Cliff May Home Tour in 2016,” said listing agent Mindy Oglesby-Niehaus with JP & Associates Plano. “It was a favorite to many tour goers as they said it felt as though they were up in the trees. Cliff May’s architectural design was focused on indoor and outdoor entertaining and boasts classic midcentury design elements.”

This week, our houses range in price from $299,000 to $2,999,999. Which ones will you visit?
