DALLAS, Aug. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A true piece of Dallas' architectural history grandly situated in one of the city's most exclusive communities will be offered at public auction by Heritage Auction's Luxury Real Estate September 27, 2016.
Built in 1954, the historic estate at 3756 Armstrong Avenue was the creation of O'Neil Ford, known as the grandfather of Texas Modernism and widely recognized as one of Texas' most celebrated 20th-century architects. Each of the custom-built home's features was designed to integrate the timeless modernism of Europe with Texas-flavored early pioneer craftsmanship and materials.
"Highland Park is truly one of the finest and most singular communities in Texas and throughout the United States," said Nate Schar, Director of the Luxury Real Estate division for Heritage Auctions. "The sale of this estate represents a rare, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to preserve and restore a piece of architectural heritage or to build your own dream residence."
Built for privacy with a number of trees and mature landscaping surrounding the property, the exceptional placement on an oversized corner lot. Measuring at .85 acres — the lot alone appraised for $6.1 million in February 2016 — making this property a great blank canvas for those looking to build their own masterpiece.
This unparalleled location provides the perfect central point to tap into all that Dallas has to offer, with access to Dallas' top-rated schools, upscale shopping, dining, cultural events and natural beauty nearby at Highland Park Village, the Uptown area or Downtown Dallas, each of which is just minutes away.
The township's welcoming environs are noted for their lush tree-lined streets, stately boulevards, flowing tributaries and spectacular parks that blend seamlessly with the grand estates of the area. A number of walking paths, ponds, fountains and tennis courts highlight the well-planned community's extraordinary design.
"With everything that Highland Park and this estate have to offer, I can't state strongly enough the opportunity available to attain property in such an attractive, coveted area," Schar said. "This property will be sold to one very lucky individual at this prestigious auction event."
