You’ve surely driven by and noticed the landmark Dallas estate designed by Hal Thompson and built in 1926 for Harry A. Olmsted, president of the State Fair of Texas and co-founder of Olmsted-Kirk Paper Company. The house sits on a peninsula-shaped lot—a little less than one acre—and it’s been updated and restored with great respect to its architectural integrity. The gourmet kitchen includes high-end design amenities such as a vegetable sink with a water purification and chiller system. The home boasts 8,023 square feet of artful touches—from the exterior fieldstone to the antique oak-paneled study. Additional features include six bedrooms, six and a third bathrooms, formals, solarium, study, office, exercise room, screened porch, pool, cabana, and greenhouse.
