University Park Architect Designed Home
4144 Shenandoah Street, Dallas, Texas
Earlyl 20th Century Description of Home
Designed by Charles Dilbeck in 1934, this eclectic Normandy style 3,400 square foot stone cottage has become the best-known and most loved Dilbeck designed home in Dallas. Dilbeck captured in this home the European charm and Texas idiosyncrasy for which he is famous. Rough-hewn wood, plaster walls and random cut stone floors express his understanding of materials and artisanship. The meandering floor plan of angled rooms, courtyards and balconies reflect the indigenous architecture of early Texas pioneers. This delightful house attracts you with its whimsical design and embraces you with its warm and simple splendor. Architect David Oswald designed the elaborate kitchen and oversaw the renovation.
