Renowned architect Frank Welch’s home for sale

Some can say they live in homes designed by great architects, but very few can say they live in the former home of a legend.

 

In Dallas, there is no architect more revered than the late Frank Welch, deemed the dean of Texas architecture. The opportunity to own Welch’s former home at 3511 Cragmont Ave. is now available with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate Associate Tricia Weiner for $1,179,000.

 

Built in 1997, the 2,932-square-foot home is nestled discreetly amid the modern and contemporary homes in Northern Hills, just outside Highland Park and steps away from the Katy Trail. Much like the other homes he designed around Dallas, Welch’s former home is marked by a modern, simple aesthetic and use of natural light.

Welch designed homes to retain their true beauty within, he once said, with humble façades that allow for stunning surprises inside the home. This philosophy applies to his former home, with its simple, gray exterior only showing glimpses of the light held within. A two-car, front-facing garage blends seamlessly with the rest of the exterior.

 

Upon entrance, there is no lack of light inside the two-story home, which features 11-foot ceilings, skylights and an open floor plan.

Welch sought high-quality details within his home – from dual baths and closets to two brick fireplaces to beautiful gray granite counters in the galley kitchen. An elevator completes the home.
