The purpose of the annual Historic Home Tour is to show case architecturally and historically significant homes of the Park Cities and illustrate how these homes have been restored or remodeled and updated to serve the lifestyle needs of families today.


Tish Key is chairing the Annual Historic Home Tour happening on Saturday, April 1. This year's tour features four fabulous Park Cities Homes:


  • 3600 Greenbrier: A reimagined 1930s Colonial style home, extensively renovated with grand interior spaces and dramatic design, maintaining the exterior six stately live oak trees and changing the entrance to Thackery, honoring and celebrating the relationship between the home and the land in a splendid way;

  • 4218 Fairfax Avenue: Built in 1929, a rare jewel created by Clyde H. Griesenbeck, the original architect. Each phase of renovations were diligently researched and period appropriate glass, slate tiles, masonry, carpentry and hardware were utilized. Winner of the Historic Preservation Achievement Award in 2004. Dorothy Malone lived here for a number of years. The traditional exterior disguises the fact that you have stepped into a whimsical Tudor wonderland;

  • 4309 Westway: Built in 1942, an elegant example of French Eclectic architecture, retaining the original front fa?ade and decorative appliqued plaster window elements, the interior space has been redefined in a creative, imaginative manner;

  • 3825 Miramar: A stately example of eclectic Greek Revival architecture was built in 1922 by J.A. Pitzinger, architect. The Delagi family retained the exterior fa?ade and more during an extensive renovation and restoration endeavor. The residence reaches out and embraces nature from every room while the contemporary interior enhancements provide comfort and pleasure. A vintage treasure and a Highland Park classic rescued and updated in magnificent fashion.

Advance tickets for the Saturday, April 1 Historic Home Tour will be available in March 2017 at Tom Thumb stores in the Park Cities area or through the PCHPS office (214) 582-0021, the PCHPS website www.pchps.org or checks for the April 1st Historic Home Tour tickets can be mailed to 25 Highland Park Village, Suite 100, Box 286, Dallas, TX 75205-2789.
