Simply exquisite. Built in 1922, designed by noted architect Bertram Hill and sensitively restored under the supervision of architect historian Daron Tapscott, this property is affectionately referred to as one of the “Sister Houses” in Junius Heights Historic District. Sited on a beautifully landscaped ±.31 acre corner lot, this three bedroom, two and a half bath home seamlessly blends a medley of architectural styling, original fixtures and features and 21st century updating to create one of the most magnificent properties in Old East Dallas.
Formal living and dining rooms, both with Rookwood fireplaces, lend themselves to lavish entertaining. A butler’s pantry opens to a marvelous kitchen with Bosch and Sharp stainless steel appliances, soapstone countertops and the original Chambers stove and sink. Completing the 1" floor is a breakfast room, half bath with Rookwood tile and a stunning Rookwood tiled solarium with fountain. The fountain, titled “Boy and Dolphin” is dated 1914 and is signed by famed Cincinnati-based sculptor Clement J. Barnhorn, a frequent Rookwood collaborator. Upstairs are three generously sized bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms share an original bath, while the master suite boasts a private study and lavish bath with dual vanities, tub and oversized shower. Abundant walk-in closet spaces and two additional Rookwood fireplaces add to the enjoyment of the second floor.
A sparkling pool, cabana, original quarters and two car carport complete this outstanding offering. Gleaming oak and pine floors, fabulous millwork, lavish window treatments, laundry room, partial basement, fencing, electronic gate and alarm and sprinkler systems are just a few of the additional amenities.
5450 Gaston is located in Junius Heights Historic District and is just minutes to downtown, White Rock Lake and numerous shopping, restaurant and entertainment venues.
