History, curb appeal, and livability? Yes please!

The stunning residence at 6014 Swiss Avenue was designed by Bertram C. Hill, the architect behind some of the most recognizable buildings in Dallas. In addition to numerous other homes in the prestigious Swiss Avenue district, Hill had a hand in the design the Adolphus Hotel and parts of the Lakewood Country Club.

Like the rest of Hill's work, this 96-year-old estate showcases both Italianate and French influences. Listing agent Becky Oliver told The Dallas Morning News that one of her favorite aspects of the home is its curb appeal, particularly its classic symmetry and live oak trees.

The 5,066-square-foot house is situated on 0.46 acres and boasts five bedrooms, four bathrooms, two half-bathrooms, a gym, office, wine cellar, stained glass windows, and period details throughout. Outside you'll find a pool, two-car garage with attached living quarters, and numerous spaces for alfresco entertaining.

6014 Swiss Avenue is listed by Becky Oliver of Briggs Freeman Sotheby's International Realty for $2,199,000.

The landscaped backyard is shaded by more than a dozen well established Oak and Magnolia trees. We're particularly big fans of the covered outdoor dining space beside the pool.
