I may have forgotten to tell you that 10 Nonesuch Road, the stunningly significant Dallas Landmark and Lakewood mansion that once belonged to the late Stanley Marcus, in fact, was designed and built by Stanley Marcus, has left the Hip Pocket world and entered the world of the MLS. Dave Perry Miller agent Nancy Johnson is the listing agent.
Inwood Mortgage Home of the Week: Frank L. Meier Historical Spread Built for Richard Rogers Had Two Lear Jets as Collaterol
This luscious home at 5622 Harbor Town up in Bent Tree North, was designed by starchitect Frank L. Meier in 1981. It brings us nicely out of our introspective week gazing at 1963-era homes built the year President John F. Kennedy visited Dallas and met with his sudden, tragic, untimely death. The home is being marketed by the amazing Jacqui Bloomquist of Coldwell Banker Apex.
Abraham Zapruder Lived at 3909 Marquette in University Park in 1963: JFK Week and Dallas Real Estate
These are notes shown in the issue of LIFE: 50 Years Later that is on newsstands with the incredible gut-wrenching story of how Life editor Dick Stolley obtained the video of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas 50 years ago. It was shot carefully with a Bell & Howell Zoomatic Director Series Model 414 PD camera, by University Park resident Abraham Zapruder.
LocalDwelling.com Lease of the Week: Tons More Mid-Century Style With This Condo Inside Howard R. Meyer-Designed Building
When it was built in 1957, 3525 Turtle Creek was the tallest and most luxurious condo building in Dallas. Today it’s just as historic, having entertained celebrities, dignitaries, and politicians alike.
It’s hard to imagine, but in 1963 Walnut Hill Lane was the new frontier of building in Dallas. Nothing typifies the period more than 5333 Walnut Hill Lane. Built in 1963, this sprawling ranch has all the ingredients that consumers were groovin’ back in 1963: port-cocheres with pebble aggregate driveways and patios; brick walls in the house. Sliding glass doors, oh my, they couldn’t get enough of them. Low ceilings were more typical of the 1950′s but they still abounded; however, in the early sixties we started to see a lot of these new things called “A-frame” ceilings where one edge of the room was at standard ceiling height, say 8 feet, the other soared up to a new height. Also so hot: brick and tile floors, aggregate marble, linoleum and even some stone. Very little wood was used as flooring unless specified. Iron gates as interior doors, barbecue grills right in the kitchen, and pendulous light fixtures that my dad once said reminded him of boobs.
Reston’s Article in ‘Slate’ Calls Oswald House on N. Beckley “Ramshackle,” And Lake Cliff “Fairly Rough”
It seems as if people are coming out of the woodwork to offer their experiences and opinions on Dallas and how it relates to the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination. What will prove frustrating to many Dallasites are the blatant generalizations made by these one-off columnists who’ve had only a glimpse of the city they are hot on critiquing.
Take, for instance, James Reston Jr.’s piece in Slate that serves as a journal of his tour through the city, following the footsteps of alleged JFK shooter Lee Harvey Oswald after the he fled the Texas School Book Depository in downtown’s West End and hopped a bus for Oak Cliff. Continue reading

With Wright Amendment Restrictions on the Way Out, Will Increased Air Traffic Affect Love Field Home Sales?
Love Field is surrounded by some of the best and priciest neighborhoods in Dallas. Flanked by Mockingbird Lane, Lemmon Avenue, and Denton Drive, this airport has always gotten the stink-eye from neighboring property owners who feel entitled to some peace and quiet.
Two former U.S. Navy SEALs, Clint Bruce and Stephen Holley, co-founders of Carry the Load, snagged The Dallas Foundation’s 2013 Good Works Under 40 Award at Trammel Crow’s Old Parkland Hospital Campus Thursday night.
Holley is a 2000 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy who completed four military deployments and now works in commercial real estate. He is with the Dallas office of Jones Lang LaSalle.
Let’s talk about Hill Haven Heights, OK? I love this area. It is a fabulous neighborhood bordered by North Central Expressway, Hillcrest, Forest, and Royal, so it’s extremely accessible. It’s also full of great single-family homes and a few great condo communities. It’s not far from the Park Cities, Preston Hollow, or the scads of shopping options lining Highway 75.
