Wilson McClure Designed Architecturally Significant Residence
3802 Shenandoah Avenue, Dallas, Texas
Wilson McClure was a prominent architect. Most of the windows were replaced to reflect the oversized panes of the dining room bay window and side great room window. The volume in the house is good, but the finishes were bad. Bruce Bernbaum and Emily Summers redesigned the house with 1940s furniture, custom designed wrought-iron railings and fireplaces with space and materials derivative of the period.
This is one of the first houses in Dallas with a great room at the back of the house that was larger than the living room. Dallas is filled with good solid 1960s built homes. This is an exquisite example of how you can not only update, but create a spectacular and exciting home.
