2016 Home Tour Preview III – Lausanne

Posted by    |    September 23rd, 2016 at 1:41 pm


The home at 1006 Lausanne, built in 1937, is one of the five homes in a family of Skillern homes in the Kessler Park neighborhood. Only two owners have lived in the house since the Skillern family and both made significant changes to the home’s original footprint and architecture. Built by a Skillern daughter and her husband, a German engineer, the home was designed to stay cool during hot Texas summers. With a full brick exterior, small windows and multiple interior doors and windows for cross breezes, the original home was incredibly functional, if not stunning.

2016 Home Tour Preview II – Siesta

Posted by    |    September 23rd, 2016 at 1:35 pm


When you walk into this ranch style home at 2115 Siesta Drive you have the feeling that you have walked back in time to 1956 when it was built. It was lovingly maintained over the years by the Cannefax family who raised 4 children in this home. The home features scalloped wood trim on the many doorways, closets and built-ins, all of which are in mint condition with the original wood finish. The Cannefax kids will tell you there are creatures in the woodwork! See if you can find them! The vintage bathrooms are in keeping with the era with tasteful colors and beautiful tile work that is still in pristine condition.

This charming Craftsman-style bungalow at 303 N. Willomet was built in 1914 by its first resident, J. W. Felix. Since then the house has passed through several owners until the current owners purchased it in 2000. The home is a classic example of the bungalows in Winnetka Heights Historic District, which with 625 homes is one of the largest historic districts in the state.
