We have a soft spot for architect Charles Dilbeck, and we have a special affinity for the Greenway Parks neighborhood, so we’re excited to bring you our Inwood House of the Week at 5522 Waneta Drive today. The neighborhood is built in a traditional English manner, with houses surrounding a parkway, which the Brits refer to as a “commons.” One of the best aspects of this is that it affords an architect the opportunity to create two facades, one facing the greenbelt and the other facing the street. This home is a Charles Dilbeck Spanish Colonial Revival, and an excellent example of a double facade house. (more…)

Our Inwood House of the Week at 6941 Lakeshore Drive is a Lakewood Colonial revival-style home that appeals to our sense of nostalgia in a big way. The Colonial style has never lost favor, it’s just been adapted and reinvented every decade to suit changing lifestyle needs and design trends. For instance, this 1952 Colonial Revival features a Craftsman-era entry porch. It just serves to further enhance the all-American flavor and make you feel right at home. (more…)


We love Swiss Avenue. If you live in Dallas, no explanation is necessary. If you just arrived, do yourself a favor and explore this historic street. Take special note of this original, early prairie estate at 4937 Swiss Avenue, because once you’ve discovered the street, you’ll want to live here. We chose this particular home as our Inwood House of the Week because it captures the very essence of Dallas at the turn of the century, and it’s been completely renovated so you can move right in!

Highland Park Colonial

We’ve loved this Highland Park Colonial at 4511 Arcady Avenue for a long time. It reflects that all-American style that movie companies love. Look at the houses used as film locations for Father of the Bride, Home Alone, Baby Boom, and even The Amityville Horror. Hollywood loves a Colonial. The architectural style says “Made in America,” and more than any other style, it says you are safe — you are home. (more…)

Our Inwood House of the week is a Preston Hollow midcentury modern that encompasses the best design elements of the 1950s. The influences of Edward Durrell Stone, Bruce Goff, Phillip Johnson, and Frank Lloyd Wright are all apparent in the design of 7008 Yamini Drive. (more…)


If you’re building a home in a conservation district, you have to cleverly combine classic style with current amenities. Our Inwood House of the Week is a Vickery Place modern Tudor at 5528 Vickery Boulevard by LeComte Homes, and it’s an excellent example of how builders are getting it right. (more…)

Our Inwood House of the Week is a charming Midway Hollow Hill Country Contemporary at 4040 Davila Drive built for Robert and Jennifer Black in 2008 by Herman Darden Custom Homes.

The Blacks are Midway Hollow pioneers. They bought their first home in the neighborhood 13 years ago.

“It was a 1948 ranch,” Jennifer said. “When we discovered the neighborhood, we loved it immediately. We bought that house and lived in it until our son was about a year and a half old. Then the teardowns started. We knew we were outgrowing the house, we wanted another child, and we knew we did not want to leave Midway Hollow.”

The couple also knew what they did want.

When you have location — you have it all. Our Inwood House of the Week at 1123 Kensington Lane is not only in one of the best locations in Dallas, but it’s also one of the finest Texas Modernist homes you’ll find anywhere. Located on a hill about thirty feet above Stevens Park Golf Course, architect Aaron Angle created a vision in dry stack stone for a client that had fallen in love with Oak Cliff. (more…)
