“Charles Dilbeck created a legacy in the 1930’s building fanciful country French style cottages and homes that are to this day unequaled in their charm and picturesque quality,” according to broker David Griffin. “Sitting on over .4 of a wooded acre just off of Colorado Blvd., this 4 bedroom/2.5 bath full two story home located at 1134 Lausanne Ave. has all of the famous Dilbeck touches (even an entry tower),” says Griffin.
“The large living room is a major architectural statement,” continues Griffin. “The room features a marvelous “walk-in” fireplace with hand carved wood ribbon and fleur-de-lis detailing.” There is a brick hearth and an iron pot holder. The living room has blonde hardwood floors and a beamed ceiling.
The dining room also has wood floors and a highly detailed wood ceiling that features a central medallion, and both a carved perimeter molding and diagonally place moldings.
The kitchen is large and open. Newer appliances include a stainless steel Bosch dishwasher, stainless steel KitchenAid wall oven, warming drawer and microwave. The den has brick floors, a beamed ceiling, and lots of windows looking out to the lush back yard.
“On the second floor there are 4 bedrooms including a very charming pine paneled bedroom also with 3 exposures that has a very “Ralph Lauren” kind of feeling,” says Griffin.
Attached to the home is a 2 car garage. At the rear of the property is a detached apartment or guest suite.
Griffin says, “Here is a home to be loved and updated by those who appreciate a superb location and charming design by one of Dallas’ most important architects.”
This home will be open Sunday 3pm – 5pm and is offered at $599,000.
