Triple Crown

Here is a historic home that is a Triple Crown winner of Dallas historic and architecturally significant home recognition. In 1997, the Dallas Chapter of AIA selected this 1915 historic home built for the first SMU Bishop as a 50 Significant Home. In 2008, Willis Winters, Virginia McAlester, and Prudence Mackintosh selected this historic home as one of the homes they featured in Great American Suburbs: The Homes of the Park Cities, Dallas. And now Preservation Park Cities has selected this historic home at 3444 University Boulevard as one of the Top Ten homes to save in the Park Cities. Maybe the greatest distinction this University Park home has received is that it is part of SMU English Professor Bonnie Wheeler’s book she wrote, The Block Book: HISTORY AND RECOLLECTIONS OF THE 3400 BLOCK OF UNIVERSITY BOULEVARD. In this book, the home at 3444 University Boulevard and its history is recounted as is the history of every home on the block. The late Gloria Wise, the former Executive Director of the Dallas Chapter of AIA first brought my attention to this home as she and her husband had restored it and wanted to preserve it in the future. They found the perfect buyer, their son! Their son Philip Wise has done a beautiful job further restoring and preserving the home. This is another preservation success story. *Triple Crown
