This fabulous corner lot invites an owner that will honor the rare and untouched history of 1920s residential Dallas. 5847 Vanderbilt was the home of Geneva Heights' original developer, EF Duggan. Duggan hired renowned Dallas architect, George Dahl to design his personal home. Most known for his commercial design, George Dahl's buildings in the Fair Grounds at Fair Park are visited by over 5 million people every year. This three bed, one bath home has countless possibilities while keeping its original footprint. Only M Street home on record designed by Mr. Dahl, and only three owners. Full home water filtration system, new garage door opener. Detached 2.5 car garage. If desired, WW2 Chambers stove and refrigerator convey with the property. Fireplace is ornamental. School construction will be finished by June and pick up lines are on the other side of the school.
