The 1935 Walton House has always perched on the center of its vast Bluffview Estates lot, the landscape and grounds cascading down around it with a natural flow. Carol and James Walton selected a huge lot in Bluffview for their impressive 1930s home. At the time, Walton owned and ran City Wrecking and Trading Co., an early Dallas architectural demolition and salvage company.  He later expanded into supplying steel building products. It leads me to wonder if Charles Dilbeck did not use City Wrecking for his rustic architectural elements.  It would make sense.

Splurge vs. Steal: Two Modern Farmhouse Homes with High-end Finishes, Luxe Details | CandysDirt.com

The modern farmhouse look is a huge trend nationwide and it’s showing up in beautiful form all around Dallas. 

The North Texas take on modern farmhouse marries a contemporary-transitional design aesthetic with cozy natural elements to create a fresh, clean-lined, cozy feel. Think white or cream-colored exterior, front porch, standing seam metal roof, open floorplan, warm wood accents, sliding doors, and a back porch or patio. 

The two houses we’re featuring in today’s Splurge vs. Steal have all these elements and more — they’re excellent examples of the trend done Dallas-style. They’re in different well-known neighborhoods, but the vibes are similar. Which one is your favorite?
