This home is one of the treasures of the Park Cities: a striking French Quarter flavor built by Rusty Goff in 2007 that is owned by one of the most talented landscape architects in town, Doug Smellage, owner and founder of Lawns of Dallas.
True landscapers, they built the structure and landscaped as carefully as they crafted the home’s interiors. That is why, from the very start, you notice that something is very different about 3141 Southwestern Boulevard.
First of all, it’s on a corner lot, the south east quadrant of Southwestern and Airline. The lot is elevated to an almost Hill Country feel, and the house is set back more deeply than most. You actually walk up the cobbled stone driveway, which is curved and large enough to park a bevy of cars. The sensibility is New Orleans as you walk to the front door, surrounded by greenery, a side entrance from the gracious porch. Here is where Daisy Buchanan would be swinging and watching the world go by.
