Real Estate

Hot Property: Hilltop Lot Atop White Rock Lake

Love is a pool with a view.

Happy Valentine’s Day, dear readers! We hope your day is filled with sweet messages and only the good chocolates, but to really lavish on the love this February 14, we’re gifting you with some glorious, aspiration-inducing real estate.

At 4211 W Lawther Drive, architectural significance isn’t gained by historic exteriors alone. Filled with 200-year-old oak trees and a wildflower meadow, the grounds were perfectly groomed by internationally recognized local architect David Hocker. And what a project that must have been. With clear views of the water from three sides of the lot, the four-acre property is instantly recognizable to anyone who’s made the rounds at White Rock Lake. What might not be quite as clear from the trail is the stone-lined outdoor pool, or the charming 3,600-square-foot home originally owned by H.L. Hunt’s oldest son in the ’30s. Dallas architect Ted Larson reverently renovated the house in recent years, while adding some appropriate modern touches, such as a slate roof, Waterworks fixtures, and copper gutters.

Though some listings explain that the structure can be easily expanded upon or used as a guest house, we’d be completely content to call the classic, New England-inspired exteriors and warm, white-oak filled interiors home.
