Lakewood Hutsell Mansion

When John Angell emailed me photos of this iconic Lakewood Hutsell mansion yesterday morning, I almost spit out my coffee. Yes, I was that excited. You see, these architecturally significant, historically important, and delightfully eclectic homes are not often for sale.

I was sure I had written about this Lakewood Hutsell before because I’ve seen and written about a lot of homes designed by this amazing architect.

I was wrong.

What had me fooled was the rarity of the outdoor curtains that hang on either side of the large arched stained glass window. And the balcony, and the piqué assiette courtyard floor, and the stained glass. Let’s face it. This beauty is almost the sister of the Hutsell at 7035 Lakewood Boulevard, making it a close copy of the home the architect built for himself. I’m not at all surprised that an old Hutsell fan like me was fooled, because repetition is present in all this genius designed.

Woodcreek contemporary

This Woodcreek Contemporary was voted Crowd Favorite on the prestigious White Rock Home Tour in 2012. That’s high praise if you understand anything about the standards of Dallas modern architecture fans.

This tour began in 2006 as a showcase for Contemporary, Modern, and Midcentury Modern homes. It has become one of the most exciting tours in Dallas. Chosen homes meet some pretty high standards and to have a house voted Crowd Favorite carries a lot of weight. It means not only has the house met those high design standards, but that everyone also fell in love with the home.

It’s easy to see why.
