Spanish-Mediterranean

If I had to guess, I’d say this lovely Spanish-Mediterranean was designed by leading Dallas architects Marion Fooshee and James Cheek. Let me know if you think otherwise. But I do my detective work, and I can support my theory pretty well, so here goes!

Foshee & Cheek were well-known for their eclectic Spanish-Mediterranean style, including Dr. Hugh Leslie and Lydia Bowen Moore’s home at 4200 Beverly Drive. Their most significant design was Highland Park Village, the first self-contained shopping center in America. They were also involved in the design of the Hall of State and Aquarium buildings in Fair Park. Foshee lived at the duplex on 4441-4443 Westway Avenue, and Cheek lived at the duplex at 4417-4419 — right next door!

I think it makes for a natural assumption Foshee & Cheek are responsible for this wonderful Spanish-Mediterranean. So, I’m going with that!
