If you love country life and would do anything to have the ideal country-home with a touch of class, you are not alone. The following post tells of a 1938 home, which is still as amazing as it was when it was built:
Whimsical By Design: Charles Dilbeck’s 1938 ranch house still exudes luxury, comfort
Charles Dilbeck was a romantic architect whose copious output over a 60-year career encompassing the mid-1900s is still dotted across North Texas. His homes are considered eclectic gems, and one of his more remarkable structures is in Westlake in north Tarrant County. It is an elaborately imagined ranch house built in 1938 for a publisher of The Dallas Morning News, Ted Dealey. For the past 40 years, Scott and Kelly Bradley have owned it.
Like many Dilbeck devotees, the Bradleys have spent a fortune on their home — updating the kitchen and bathrooms, expanding the tiny closets, adding a master bedroom wing and guest house. In doing so, they doubled the square footage. Read more at Star Telegram…

“Our family has spent time at a cottage, or lived, on Rice Lake since the mid-1960s. And since we’ve been in the construction business for generations, we decided to build our custom home on one of the most prestigious lots on the south shore of Rice Lake,” says homeowner Joe Listro, the senior partner of the contracting team.

Frank McKinney eschews the terms typically used to describe someone in his line of work: builder, designer, developer. The way he sees it, he’s a real estate artist. And his canvas is Florida’s Gold Coast.
McKinney works in only one medium: luxury homes with commensurately high price tags…. Now he’s reinventing his brand, challenging the bigger-is-better movement that has been his mentality for the past 35 years….
“The micro mansion is the newest concept in ultra-high end homes, and I’m the first one to tap into it here,” McKinney says.
