Highland Park, Texas, National Historic Landmark – Sold by Douglas Newby

Many consider this Highland Park home designed by Mark Lemmon to be the most historically significant home in Highland Park and maybe Dallas and North Texas. Richard R. Brettell, the former director of the Dallas Museum of Art and founder of the Dallas Architecture Forum, co-authored with Willis Cecil Winters, FAIA, and former Dallas Parks Director, the book, Crafting Traditions—The Architecture of Mark Lemmon. Edmund P. Pillsbury, the former director of the Kimbell Art Museum and the Meadows Museum, wrote the introduction to this book on Mark Lemmon. Ted Pillsbury wrote that, “Mark Lemmon (1889-1975) was the most important historicist architect of 20th-Century Dallas.”

Highland Park prices are not speculative because Highland Park buyers have the highest incomes and net worth in relationship to the price of the homes they are buying. A small pool of homes available with the distinct advantages of Highland Park not replicable in other parts of Dallas or the country make Highland Park an attractive investment and place for a home.
