Candlelight Tour

This intimate event provides a first glimpse into the six spectacular homes showcased during the Lakewood Home Festival on Friday, November 9, from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m.

6636 Avalon Avenue – FRIDAY NIGHT ONLY
This 1927 Tudor is one of only two houses on Avalon built by noted contractor George Dolph, builder of Munger Place Church. A major renovation in 2008 preserved the character of the home while modernizing it for today. Original architectural features include metal window casements, picture molding, a Rookwood tile fireplace, and glass-front built-in cabinets. Beautiful traditional furnishings and eye-catching artwork populate the home.

The Homes

6947 Coronado Avenue This 2011 modern farmhouse was designed by the architect-owner and inspired in part by his great-grandparents’ home in the New Orleans garden district. The home was designed around a traditional archetype but reveals a modern interior consisting of clean lines. Furnishings and art demonstrate the owners’ fondness for Mid-century Modern, their love of travel and a connection to the architect-owner’s New Orleans roots.
6739 Avalon AvenueAn example of the Traditional architectural style that became more prevalent in Lakewood in the late 1930s, this stately abode, situated on close to a half acre, invites you to step inside and feel at ease. The owners’ seamless updates reflect their abiding love of the home’s classic character blended with their busy family lifestyle.
7031 Lakewood BoulevardAfter a fire in the late ’90s, this 1926 Hutsell was brought back to life through the efforts of designer and neighborhood resident Carol Gantt. The current owners have introduced their own unique decorating style to the home, which includes many family pieces mixed with flea market and antique store finds. The furnishings and décor perfectly complement the home’s Spanish Eclectic architectural style.
6552 Lake Circle Drive The first reaction of most who view this extraordinary home curbside is a stunned and simple, “Wow.” This Mid-century Modern-influenced home, built in 2011, is fully integrated with the natural features of its heavily forested creek lot. Constructed to showcase its setting, the home reveals spectacular creek views from every room. The gorgeous homeowner-designed landscape, and the sunken stone-lined pool, a collaborative design between the homeowner and the original architect, perfectly suit the home’s raw, natural environment.
6903 Bob O Link DriveThe Austin Stone exterior of this striking ranch is a feature commonly found throughout Lakewood’s northern side. Not so common is the Hill Country Contemporary vibe and the backyard oasis that takes you to another world. This home was completely remodeled in the last year but maintains its original 1945 footprint. The owners designed the home and landscape themselves and live in every room, indoors and out.
3616 Vintage Place Although built in 2007, this Hutsell-inspired home with its strong Spanish Eclectic characteristics would not be out of place alongside any of the 1920s-era homes found on Lakewood Boulevard. The exquisite furnishings and décor enhance the home’s many standout architectural features, including an intricate ironwork staircase, magnificent stained glass and colorful decorative tile.

J.L. Long Middle School, 6116 Reiger Avenue – SAT & SUN ONLY
Opening its doors in 1933 and recognized in 2005 as a Dallas Historical Landmark, this is the first non-residence to appear on the Lakewood Home Tour. Designed in the Modified Elizabethan style with art deco influences, it boasts turrets, dark red brick, finials and scrollwork, ornate woodwork, Rookwood tile, and vintage Potter Art Metal light fixtures. The windows and many interior design elements were refurbished through a recent multi-million-dollar restoration.
