Stubbs House

You remember our post about the estate sale over at 6243 La Vista. The home, a historic treasure that had been lovingly preserved by Willetta Stellmacher, will hit the market soon, listed by none-other than Elizabeth Mast.

Mast, the foremost Realtor for the Swiss Avenue area, plans to take her time freshening the Landmark Stubbs home and staging it to show off its colorful history and beautiful details. She plans to list the five-bedroom, four-full-and-two-half-bath estate this coming April for $1.5 million. Mast will stage the home using some of Stellmacher’s incredible collection of antiques and showbiz memorabilia.

Elizabeth Mast“We’re already starting with an incredible property,” Mast said via phone this morning. The home on La Vista, which sits just at the northeastern end of Swiss Avenue, has stunning original details, including pocket doors, millwork, and etched glass all over the home. It’s amazing how much of the original details have made it through the home’s past life as a piece-meal boarding house, but many bathrooms sport vintage tile, too.

“It has survived everything,” Mast said of the home, which has a solarium, a carriage house, pool, and porte cochere. It has more than 5,500 square feet of interior space, according to Dallas Central Appraisal District, which values the 1927 landmark at $874,300.

Sure, this would be an amazing home for a history buff, but what Mast wants to emphasize is that this house is perfect for any family. Considering its amazing structure and age, this home could be carefully updated to accommodate any modern family’s lifestyle. And it would do so beautifully.

“This home has such a great deal of warmth to it,” Mast said. “And the more you’re in the home, the more you feel it.”

We can’t wait to see it, both before it hits MLS and during the incredibly popular, not-to-be-missed  May 10-11 Swiss Avenue Mother’s Day Home Tour, of which this incredible property will be the star.
