This historic home on Swiss Avenue was built in 1924 by architect Bertram C. Hill, who helped design the Adolphus Hotel and parts of the Lakewood Country Club, according to The Dallas Morning News archives. He also designed many homes in the Swiss Avenue district and Lakewood.
6014 Swiss Avenue is a five-bedroom, four-bathroom and two half-bathroom home. The house has 5,066 square feet and is situated on 0.46 acres, with a pool and a garage with a separate quarters in the backyard.
Listing agent Becky Oliver said one of her favorite aspects of the home is its curb appeal, noting the symmetry and live oak trees at the front of the property.
“The architecture on the outside of it is so pretty,” she said.
The family who owned the property for 30 years updated the home by renovating the kitchen and the upstairs attic. They also added a primary bedroom and bathroom suite, a family room, a half-bathroom and a wet bar.
The main living spaces sit on the first floor. Past the entrance, a light-filled living room sits adjacent to a piano room that has access to the lower front patio. A family room, powder bathroom and a wet bar also sit on the first floor. The redesigned kitchen has numerous arch details and flows into a breakfast room, which flows into a dining room.
The primary suite sits on the second floor attached to a bathroom and gym. The remaining bedrooms sit on the second floor as well.
In 2008, Oliver said the owners renovated the third floor to make it into a bedroom with two walk-in closets and a bathroom. The bedroom, initially designed for two children, is a single room separated by built-in desks and bookshelves. There’s also a laundry room on the third floor.
Outside, the property has multiple living spaces and a large pool. The backyard also has a garage with an attached quarters that includes a bedroom and bathroom.
