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.
