People, you have to see this home to believe it, one of the most significant in Dallas and a full blown tribute to the ’60s! Read all about it and see you at the party!

Natalie Westbrook says that she can’t sit still for long. Whenever boredom creeps in, she has to create something. These days she is staying busy with her most ambitious creation, The Westbrook Real Estate Group, which started last September.

“It’s scary jumping out into the water, but if you don’t jump, you’ll never learn to swim,” Westbrook said.

So far, things seem to be progressing swimmingly. Westbrook currently has listings in University Park and Oak Lawn as well as a high-profile, $7 million home on 4606 Chapel Hill Road overlooking White Rock Lake. In fact, you can tour this incredible house on Wednesday, March 28, with both Westbrook and our own Candy Evans — RSVP here. And Westbrook’s also working on other projects near Frisco that she hopes to announce soon.

I have always been curious about this house on White Rock Lake. Everybody is. The heavily treed lot in the exclusive Cloisters enclave is more than three acres and gracefully bows to afford sweeping waterfront views from most every window of the house. When I say most, I mean the majority of a 12,000-square-foot masterpiece that is peppered with floor-to-ceiling windows to take full advantage of the environment. It’s really like no other house in Dallas, given it’s prime lakefront location and the heritage of it’s tile titan owner, Robert M. Brittingham, founder of Dal-Tile, now a division of Mohawk Industries and the largest manufacturer and distributor of tile and tile products in North America. We are talking wall tile, floor tile, granite, marble, mosaics, stone and allied products used in the installation of these products. Robert M. Brittingham created thousands of jobs everywhere, but especially in Dallas, where he strategically located his firm. He has beautified thousands of homes, inside and out, since the company was founded in 1947.

We love tile but quite frankly, we love 4606 Chapel Hill even more. Come see why:
