What makes it even more significant and special is that it has remained in the family for three generations. I recall when his grandson, John Greene Taylor, called me about the home that he lived in for several decades before his death in 2022. He loved the home and lived in it to the very end with dignity and joy. I also have always liked homes on Highland Drive, as they sit across from Hackberry Creek and behind them are the estate homes on Lakeside Drive overlooking Turtle Creek. This home is sited on the high point of Highland Drive, allowing views of the trees that line Hackberry Creek and Turtle Creek. It is a special home that many homeowners will want to preserve, renovate, and enjoy for their families for the next two or three generations.
