With its romantic influences and historical style, this home designed by 1930s Dallas icon Charles Dilbeck is an architectural treasure. Now, one of these treasures is ready to be found. Beautifully updated, this gorgeous duplex is one of the largest homes ever built by Dilbeck. It evokes all the old-world charm and character of a classic farmhouse, with the most modern luxuries and amenities of today.
Famous for his rough-hewn architecture, Dilbeck widely employed the use of plaster, wood and stone, as you would see in old European homes. His designs often included surprises around every corner: turrets, balconies, wood-carvings, prominent chimneys, oversized fireplaces, a leaded-glass front window, and wavy brick that makes the home look as if it had been around for centuries.
Dilbeck often built his best houses on prominent corners, to garner the attention of as many admirers as possible. This strategically located duplex is on the highly visible corner of Preston road and University boulevard, in one of Dallas’s most exclusive neighborhoods, University Park. This upscale area is the home of SMU and the George Bush Presidential Library. Residents enjoy a multitude of high-end dining and shopping options, and kids go to the nationally-recognized Highland Park Independent Schools.
