The Architectural Genius of Architect Howard Meyer is Well Known
Very few realize he designed his best Georgian home overlooking White Rock Lake.
Architect Howard Meyer designed this 5,000 square foot estate home on White Rock Lake in 1939. While Howard Meyer, FAIA, was best known for designing highrises, modern homes, public buildings and sacred spaces, his architectural eloquence can be seen in his eclectic work, especially this estate home on a hill overlooking White Rock Lake.
Architects designing homes derived from European styles often emphasize mood, historical detail and opulence. A modernist often thinks more of the space, proportions and engineering when designing an eclectic home. The opulence of this estate home comes from the execution of this well-composed home of perfect proportions and its integral details.
Historic Home Will be Restored
When an architect designs a home of this quality, careful renovation and restoration makes economic and aesthetic sense. The scale of this historic home is large enough even by today’s standards. The proportions of the space and the proportions of the architectural detail create a home with more grandeur than its mere size would imply.
This iconic estate home will be renovated by the new owners to be enjoyed by their family.
