For Sale, and Quite the Bargain, a Winner of a 2006 Preservation Dallas Achievement Award

The redo of the once-deteriorating Embarcadero Building at Fair Park was among the recipients of Preservation Dallas's 2006 Preservation Achievement Awards; so too were The Big Thicket at White Rock Lake, the Belmont Hotel, the restoration of SMU's Dallas Hall Dome and Rotunda and ARCHITEXAS's job well done restoring the Cathedral Santuario de Guadalupe tower downtown.

Also on the list was a lesser-known property: 8534 Eustis Avenue, among four residential restorations and rehabs feted by Preservation Dallas. The honor was given to owner Todd Allen.

But this morning's New York Times gives us this heads-up: It's on the market. The paper included the mid-century modern just up Lakeland Drive from White Rock Lake in its round-up of what you can buy for $260,000 in Dallas, Chicago and Memphis. Built in '52 and rehabbed in '06 (naturally), it's not quite the steal of the Memphis four-bedroom. Still. I highly recommend the virtual tour. But does the furniture come with?

I knocked on the door Sunday during the posted open house from 2 to 4 and no one answered. I felt kinda awkward and left. Was the sign actually for THIS upcoming Sunday?

The house backs up to some active train tracks; caveat emptor.

This is a gorgeous house on a beautiful street. The house next door and one down the street are both being remodeled. I've been watching this house and still surprised it hasn't sold. If I hadn't just bought mine, I would snatch this up in a second. Truly a classic in Dallas.

Ohhh, I like that. My furniture would look horrible in there, so I guess I'll keep my $260k, but I like it very much indeed. What a great floor plan.

That is the most hipster house I've ever seen.

I lived next door to this house for 7 years and saw the whole restoration. It was a disaster beyond belief before Todd moved in. He deserves high praise for the job he did renovating! The original owner lived in the house before Todd. And I think her husband was one of the architects for a majority of the houses on the street, including mine. It's an amazing home and well worth the $260k price tag. Plus, the street is wonderful and the neighbors are close. I also used to own those red couches in the living room. Theylook great, but are not comfortable.

I remember when The Big Thicket was the place to go on summer weekends. People playing frisbee on the grass, driving their cars and riding their motorcycles back and forth on that narrow two lane road, relaxing at the picnic tables with some cold beer, good times.
