Designed by Bodron + Fruit and completed in 2009, this residence is situated on a secluded site in one of Dallas’ most scenic neighborhoods.  The house is nestled amongst trees away from the street, creating a sense of privacy. The footprint of the residence is U shaped with the public areas running parallel to the street.

The master wing and guest wing extend towards the rear of the property enveloping a landscaped courtyard. The extended height volumes of the living and dining rooms open up to the landscape on either side, blurring the exterior and interior boundaries. Limestone, copper, mahogany, and steel windows and doors were chosen reflecting a modern, but warm palette of materials. The residence features a dedicated library housing the owners’ extensive library.

Texas architect Bud Oglesby’s final residential design, completed in 1992, is this Highland Park residence originally  built for Dallas art collectors. The current owners have updated this spectacular window- walled home to display their amazing collection of contemporary art.  

The house’s exterior plan creates strong interaction to its site and is fronted by a modernist colonnade.  The slate floors, soaring ceilings and open spaces of the interior are the perfect canvas for both vintage and current furnishings and cutting-edge art, creating stimulating living spaces for these leading advocates of the arts.
