Georgian home tour in Dallas, Texas. I have never been to Texas and have little knowledge of the South in general, so I am often curious about states like Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Oklahoma. The tornado’s in Oklahoma and Texas have been all over the news lately so my head has turned south. I discovered a Georgian house in Dallas, Texas that is a landmark Highland Park Historic home designed in 1922 by a famous architect, Anton Korn.
I like beautiful rooms full of space in every direction like a rolling ranch and this Georgian house has that in spades. I also like detailed millwork and hardwood floors, and large kitchens like you will see in this house. There is a master bedroom with a separate sitting area with a beautiful antique fireplace. At first glance you can see how much the owners have loved their Georgian home.
This gracious Georgian is not too tall and just the right size wide. I wish I had the money to buy this beauty listed for $8,500,000. There are five bedrooms and even nine bathrooms within the homes 12,369 square feet.
Let’s take a peek at historic Georgian house living in Dallas, Texas.
Hello entrance you’re as lovely as I thought you would be. I want to go up the stairs and touch the millwork, but have to wait.
More interesting millwork in the dining room.
Don’t miss the patterned wood floor. The details don’t stop in his house with more millwork. The shiny, glossy, mirror-like ceiling is a special touch. I have no idea how they created this, so I went looking and found a glossy stretch vinyl called Extenzo that designers use to create this effect.
Nice warm study.
I notice not only white wood trim like in the upper photos, but now wood trim and doors in this house too. I like the mix.
Large gourmet kitchen with double ovens and not shown here are custom refrigeration units.
Nice close-ups show the details of this gracious Georgian at 4205 Lakeside Drive, Dallas, Texas. I love it all from start to finish.
