Walking up to the soaring columns, yellow façade, and manicured bushes, you can’t help but smile at the cheery and timeless style of the Neoclassical home.

Lakeside Drive
If you’re looking for a Dallas home like no other, one that has been publicly praised for its unparalleled beauty, this off-market listing is perfect for you. Perched on a coveted Lakeside Drive lot overlooking Turtle Creek, this magnificent house has been a statement of style for nearly a century.  Upon its completion in 1924, The J. T. Owens Home — as it was widely known — was described in the Dallas Morning News as, “One of the many reasons Dallas is known as the city of beautiful homes.”

Old-world charm is palpable as you step through the gracious front doors into the grand entrance, and details inside further prove that history and luxury go hand in hand here. Walk past discreet “service bells” and imagine them being delicately rung during glitzy parties as servers in white gloves descend with delectable bites and cocktails. The portrait of an early master of the manor still hangs above the library fireplace, reminding you that you are writing the next chapter of this Dallas treasure’s story, adding to the legacy.
