When this Lake Park Estates Midcentury Modern was spotted by our executive editor Joanna England, on Instagram, we clamored over writing about it like ladies fighting over the last pair of Louboutins at Neiman’s Last Call. Well, maybe not that bad, but hey, this is a terrific house.
Jim Pasant owns this completely renovated Lake Park Estates midcentury modern. You may well have met Pasant. If you are of a certain era and danced through Deep Ellum and the Stark Club in the 1980s, he was probably the DJ keeping you on the floor.
Pasant is a Renaissance man. He’s been a DJ, an art director, and a photographer, and a producer of the Stark Club documentary. The list goes on, but suffice it to say he has excellent taste.
Twenty-one years ago, Pasant fell in love with Lake Park Estates the moment he drove through it.
“My son had just been born, and I’d been living in an apartment, so I thought it’s time for a house,” Pasant said. “I drove down Lake Gardens one day, saw that canopy of trees on the street, and knew I wanted to be in this neighborhood. Then the house popped up, and I snagged it.
