Swiss Avenue Prairie Craftsman

The Swiss Avenue Prairie Craftsman at 4807 Swiss Ave. won a 2008 Preservation Dallas Restoration Award and it’s one of our five featured open houses this week.

Is there any style of house as fetching as a Prairie Craftsman? We’ve found a stunning one in historic Peak’s Addition in Old East Dallas, and she’s a beauty. This winner of the 2008 Preservation Dallas Restoration Award leads the way in our CandysDirt Open Houses of the Week column. Every Thursday, we pick five fabulous open houses in Dallas (and the ‘burbs from time to time) you shouldn’t miss.

This week, our houses range in price from $327K to $725. You’ll find a range of properties that are all memorable, from a renovated Forest Meadows contemporary in Lake Highlands (with the coolest kitchen island!) to a Hockaday Manor home with an elegant finish-out and architectural interest in every room. Let’s go!
