modern house tour
Yes, I know, it’s a sign of maturity when real estate makes you slobber more than porn. On that note, there’s much to slobber about this weekend. Modern house tour. By White Rock Lake. Creammmmmmm. I really do plan to go. Heard two of the architects on NPR this morning. Can you say anti-McMansion? If you’re looking for motivation to get those multi-millions streaming into those empty pockets, here’s some details:
The First-Ever East White Rock Lake Home Tour, April 22-23 from 12-6 p.m., features break-through contemporary homes from the late 1950s/early 1960s and a modern “green” home built in 2000 to coincide with Earth Day weekend. The five home tour includes two homes built by then progressive Ju-Nel Homes and architect Lyle Rowley, two Ju-Nel like homes and a recently completed “green” home by GGOArchitects principal and resident, Gary Olp. Please feel free to tour the homes in any order. Architect Lyle Rowley will present at 10476 Silverock on Saturday and at 10449 Vinemont on Sunday from noon to 1 p.m. Architect Gary Olp will present 9744 Northcliff from 4 to 6 p.m. both days. Tickets are $7 through April 15th and $9 thereafter (11 and under admitted free) and may be purchased at Hexter Elementary, White Rock Coffee and at any of the homes on tour during the event. All proceeds go to Hexter Elementary School’s art education program, which is not funded by Dallas ISD and relies solely on Hexter PTA fundraisers like this to pay the art teacher’s salary and purchase art, music and drama supplies. Sponsors include: White Rock Coffee, Central Market, Elizabeth Simon Designs, Hollywood Floral, Urban Flowers and Gift Market, Casa Linda Bakery, Scallini’s Pizza & Pasta and The Wine Therapist. For further information, contact Hexter Elementary at 972-502-5800.
