Jeff and Leon Henderson embarked on a full-scale, historically sensitive remodel of The Castle House in Cochran Heights. You can see it up close on April 6.

The inaugural Cochran Heights Home Tour made us fall in love with this neighborhood, which is full-to-bursting with adorable, quirky Charles Dilbeck designs. This year, deepen your affection for this East Dallas nabe on April 6, and get to know a whole new crop of homes, both Dilbeck and not!
