Located on a narrow wooded site flanked by a creek and a railroad track you would not guess you were in the North Dallas suburbs. Accessed by a 250-foot long drive from the street, this 4300 sf house and pool stretch the remaining length of the property. An elongated plan allows for multi-directional views from each room of the house and appropriate climatic orientation. The first floor includes a brick garage and a glazed living area, separated by a decomposed granite motor court breezeway. These elements support the long Cor-ten steel clad second floor, including bedrooms, gallery, office, family room and utilities. Materials used respond to adjacent railroad, economy and desire for house to blend in with the site.
