Sure you could summer on the Vineyard. But why not get a change of scenery right here in Dallas? This lovely and amazing midcentury modern home—built in 1960 and completely updated—boasts everything you need to turn your summer around. You’ll channel Ina Garten while creating summer pudding with rum whipped cream in the gourmet kitchen. You’ll cool your heels on the original terrazzo floors. You’ll find serenity in the spa-like master bedroom. You’ll become the envy of your friends when you casually mention that the house was featured in the AIA Guide to Dallas Architecture in 2001. And you’ll have trouble getting those friends to leave once they experience the incredible views of downtown Dallas and White Rock Lake. Subhi Gharbieh for Clay Stapp + Co. 214-872-0872.
