The original house was built in a prominent Dallas, Texas neighborhood, but was in need of substantial renovation. The exterior of the 1970's house was given a major remodeling. A new addition included a barrel vaulted family room, home office, laundry, mudroom, and bathroom. The kitchen was updated as an open circulating room for a family that entertains frequently. A new master suite includes a sitting room, a freestanding curved glass shower, and closets with custom millwork. The openness of the plan is accentuated with new bow windows and large French doors to the landscaped gardens and pool house.
