Monday Morning Millionaire, II: Contemporary Architectural Wonder on Watauga Taking Us to New Heights
This is one of those moments when you just want to go, ahhhh. Breathe deeply, because you will need it to get up the hill, the HILLS. This stunning abode in the bluffs is the home of a Dallas couple named David and Emily Corrigan. They LOVE architecturally significant homes. In fact, they told D Home Magazine a few years ago that, while David grew up in a traditional Highland Park home, Emily grew up steeped in Bud Oglesby on Strait Lane with interiors by the late, great John Astin Perkins. In late 2005, the Corrigans, who lived in a fairly traditional ranch in Preston Hollow, felt edged out by the McMansions shooting up around them, hemming them in. So they went shopping, and found a contemporary home on this magical hill in bucolic Bluffview, built by Dallas architect Downing Thomas in the 1950s. It was almost more about the setting than the house: lush, hilly, and heavily treed, country-esque, the anti-thesis of flat Dallas. It reminded David and their boys more of life on the family ranch or fishing camp.
