Rare Chance to Tour the Dallas Round House Tonight, and Benefit Preservation Dallas

You know how crazy we are over the Dallas “Round House”, commissioned by Dallas businessman and bon vivant Eddie Parker.

While it has never been officially confirmed, Bruce Goff is credited with designing the house because of its similarities to the other homes he has designed in the U.S. The home is now on the market for $1,725,000, be sure to check out our story on it.

Plus there are so many wonderful eccentricities: 24 karat gold dipped ceramic tiles, Hawaiian mahogany, Frankoma tiled glass walls, onyx terrazzo, intricate mosaics and brass inlaid concrete floors. All these elements plus typical 1960s materials that made that era of architecture so great — natural stone, walnut paneling, glass glass and more glass, and bamboo.

The Dallas Round House is still considered one of the most architecturally significant homes in the city and you do not want to miss it!

Tonight, you can benefit our great friends at Preservation Dallas (for a mere $20) and see this city treasure for yourself!

  • Falling out of bed in the morning takes on a whole new meaning. YIKES

  • I was speaking to one of the Preservation Dallas folks last night — amazing turnout, by the way — and it sounds like this was one of the highest-attended outings they’ve ever had. What a treat for these gracious homeowners to open up their home (even though it’s under contract) and allow the public to take a peek at what real architects, with vision, are able to create. A very special home.
