These Midcentury Moderns In Hill Haven Heights Are Giving Us Life

Share News:

Isolation isn’t all bad! Especially if you snag one of these Midcentury Modern gems. That’s right, these beauties deliver looks and location. And both are in sought-after Hill Haven Heights! In fact, these homes are the best on the block and just one minute apart. But their price points might as well be in different zip codes. Which would you choose, the Sexy Splurge or the Subtle Steal? Take your pick!

Splurge: Sexy Midcentury Modern Designed By J. Roger Crownrich For $645K

Hello lover! This beauty is so nice, we decided to feature it twice. That’s right, you might have caught this gem last week in a fabulous write-up by our own Karen Eubank, author at and owner of Eubank Staging and Design.

It’s been awhile since we have laid eyes on a Midcentury Modern that nails the Palm Springs lifestyle quite like this. So we couldn’t help but showcase it again in this week’s Splurge vs. Steal.

Legendary Design Details Abound

First off, it was designed and built by J. Roger Crownrich. He is well-known for designing and building dealerships for local and national auto legends, in addition to large-scale structures, and luckily for you, this colorful gem!

From Karen’s article, we learn that “Crownrich decided to build several homes on Valleydale near the intersection of Northaven Road. He reserved the corner lot and designed this Palm Springs Midcentury Modern for himself. The house has been referred to as ‘extreme contemporary’ because he pulled out all the stops. That included surrounding the home with a brick breezeway wall, also called abrise soleil, to provide complete privacy and to enclose a swinging courtyard.”

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom beauty sits high on a perch towering above Northaven. You can catch a glimpse of its punchy turquoise door peeking through the decorative concrete walls from the street.

Of course, we can’t help but picture a caftan-swathed gal, umbrella drink in tow, and a hunky dapper Dan soaking up the sun in that incredible courtyard. Per the listing, “The private courtyard is perfect for lounging, cocktail shaking, entertaining!” And we couldn’t agree more. 

Inside, there are walls of glass, sliding doors, and incredible period details throughout. But the real show-stopper is the kitchen! It shines with original Hotpoint dual pink refrigerators that Karen says, “would be absolutely criminal to replace.” Plus, there is not one, but two swanky master suites!

Where else can you find the ultimate Palm Springs pad in Dallas for the price? If you’re a buyer who wants to live that authentic Midcentury Modern life, this is it.

Steal: This Classic Beauty Awaits Your Final Touch For $499K

However, for nearly $150,000 less, you could live down the block in this newly revived Midcentury Modern find. Ideally nestled on a gracious 0.4-acre lot, it has all the updates. This includes a new roof, new siding, new front door, new exterior paint, and new garage doors. There aren’t any interior images available online, which leads us to believe it’s a bit of a blank canvas awaiting your final touch.

Make Your Mark, Revive This Midcentury Find

According to the listing, “The interior maintains its original character with a very spacious living room and oversized kitchen that combine for a great entertainment space. Great opportunity to update the interior and create value.”

Even better, it offers easy access to North Park Mall, Preston Hollow Village, Park Lane, Mockingbird Station, and Preston Royal. Who is itching for a project? This Midcentury Modern on Northaven could be the one for you!
