Throughout the 1920s and 1930s, legendary developers Albert Dines and Lee R. Kraft built many Tudor, Dutch Colonial, and Prairie-style spec homes across Dallas. Some of their properties dot Swiss Avenue, but most of their homes now make up the Lakewood Conservation District, including the sweeping 100-year-old Tudor at 6633 Country Club Cir.
“She’s a grand old dame,” says listing agent Jennifer Robertson, whose son and daughter-in-law, Brock and Scholle, currently own the home. The 3,006-square-foot house has original hardwood floors and multiple sunrooms and patios. The Tudoresque arch motif on the home’s façade is carried throughout the house. “Those arches are very indicative of the time this house was built,” Jennifer says. The stunning arches appear in doorways, transom windows, columns, and window muntins upstairs and down.
But besides the architectural details, Jennifer says the most spectacular part of the property is its views. Across the street from Lakewood Country Club, the home looks out onto the golf course’s lake and fairway. Downtown is in the distance. “This home probably has one of the best views of the downtown Dallas skyline of any home in Dallas,” she says.
The house is near many city conveniences, like the Lakewood Whole Foods, however its proximity to the country club makes you feel like you’re in the country, Jennifer says. Especially in the evenings, when all the golfers have played their final rounds for the day. Despite how close the home is to the course, though, stray balls rarely fly over. “But every once in a while, you’ll find a golf ball on top of the carport.”
There is another benefit of being so close to Lakewood Country Club, Jennifer says. You have a great view of the club’s Fourth of July fireworks, which are shot off from below the nearby driving range. She says last year Brock and Scholle had a watch party on their front lawn with about 60 people. They were so close, “we had a few ashes on us that night as they were falling.”
