White Rock Home Tour 2014

By
Real Estate Agent with United Real Estate Dallas TREC# 0544069

The White Rock Home Tour  features five contemporary homes this year.  My personal favorite is the house overlooking White Rock Lake Park.  Enormous white slab concrete steps separated by drought tolerant Sedum plants lead visitors to the 1,000 square foot deck and pool designed to take full advantage of the view.  Modern-Shed created the modules for this pre-fabricated energy efficient house.

The White Rock Home Tour benefits Hexter Elementry School.

Today is the last day of the tour.  Homes are open until 5:00 PM.  Stop by the following locations to pick up tickets for $15.  Tickets are also available at the homes for $20.

Ticket locations:

White Rock Coffee 4216 Abrams or 10105 East Northwest Highway

Hypnotic Donuts at 9007 Garland Road

Tom Thumb at 6333 Mockingbird Lane, 8698 Skillman, or 7700 Northwest Highway

Homes on Tour:

7151 Wildgrove Avenue - West Side of White Rock Lake

8712 Rolling Rock Lane - Highland Meadows Neighborhood

6558 Avalon Avenue - West Side of White Rock Lake

8643 Groveland Drive - Little Forest Hills Neighborhood

9211 East Lake Highlands Drive - The Peninsula Neighborhood

Joe, I love the sleek lines of contemporary homes.

Roy, the tour was well attended yesterday.  Today's weather has been great, so I'm hoping they made more money for the school today.

Sharon-The White Rock Tour sounds like a great way to see some of Dallas homes of an earlier era.

Wayne, two of the homes were tastefully renovated keeping the integrity of the original architecture.  Three of the home were built within the last four years.

Sharon, I hope they raised lots of money for the elementary school. People like touring homes and are willing to pay money to do it.

Love home tours Sharon, and I would have enjoyed the White Rock one as well. I just clicked through your link to Modern-Shed as well and bookmarked it. Very interesting to say the least!

Debbie, I was impressed by the number of people on tour, so I'm hoping they made a significant amount for the school.

Andrea, generally, I favor more traditional architectural styles.  I was in awe of this shed house. It was well built, ideally situated on its lot and had an upscale contemporary finish-out.  I loved the Modern-Shed website.  Imagine those sheds on steroids and you have the house that was on the tour.

Good morning Sharon, That would be an interesting tour, getting new ideas, but I would probably get stuck a Hypnotic Donuts while buying my tickets.
