Homes with History: Mission-Style Mansion in Dallas

Built in 1916, this Mission home located just outside of Dallas, Texas has been carefully preserved over the years. Though the 6,483-square-foot property now includes modern amenities like an open-concept kitchen and media room, the home retains its original crown moldings, grand staircase and stone fireplaces.

Mission Home With Lush Lawn

This stately home was built in 1916 on over an acre of land in Dallas, Texas. The luxury residence includes four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a lap pool, media room and more across a 6,483-square-foot floor plan.

Entrance Shaded By Awnings

Large windows get snappy green-and-white striped awnings, shading the interior from the hot Dallas sun. The awnings also add some symmetry.

Arched White Front Door

The front door is quaint and so appealing in a wide arch with pretty, patterned stone work adding a colorful welcome.

Foyer Features Wood Details

This grand staircase and charming built-in bench are made of walnut, its handsome dark brown meticulously maintained over the years. The wood floors complement these pieces and flow into other rooms.

Staircase With Built-In Bench

Over the years, great care has been taken to keep the home's stunning original details (check out the railing on that walnut staircase and bench) in beautiful shape.

Charming Curved Staircase

A gently curving staircase swoops up through the center of the home. Bannisters, railings and the charming built-in bench are all part of the home's original 1916 details.

Living Room With Two Leather Sofas

One of the home's three Batchelder fireplaces commands this living room. Gleaming exposed wood beams (that stand out especially well against the white ceiling) and trim are more of the original details.

Sliding Doors Open to Sitting Room

Another of the home's charming original details are its glass-and-wood pocket doors, like the ones that separate (or join!) this sitting room from the adjacent living room.

Bright & Airy Breakfast Nook

Just off the kitchen, a petite dining room is just right for a cozy round table and pretty, curved-back dining chairs. The wood trim stands out handsomely against cream-colored walls.

Kitchen With Moveable Island

An island on wheels lets the workstation be moved to wherever it's most needed. For storage, cabinets reach floor to ceiling on three walls.

Green Cabinets and Mosaic Backsplash

A beige mosaic tile backsplash brings depth to this large kitchen and is an elegant pairing with the room's pale green cabinetry.

Ovens With Wood Surround

This large kitchen skillfully combines the home's original 1916 details with modern-day functionality. Light green is a pretty color combination with the darker wood elements.

Brown & Green Butler's Pantry

In this butler's pantry, mosaic tiles in a range of green make for a lovely backsplash against the brown wood cabinetry and trim.

Traditional Dining Room

The dining room sports one of the home's several Batchelder fireplaces and original wood moldings and trim.

Game Room With Red Pool Table

The game room gets elegant in this historic home where a pool table is paired with a beautiful brick fireplace and wood trim.

Landing Includes Sitting Area

The wide landing at the top of these stairs has been turned into a pretty sitting area, with natural light pouring in from a row of windows and a skylight.

Bedroom With Original Fireplace

This bedroom, one of four in the home, contains an original Batchelder fireplace. There are three such fireplaces in the residence.

Media Room Boasts Refrigerators

This media room has all the allure of a secret hideout with walls covered in vintage memorabilia, shelves for music, books and DVDs and four wine refrigerators.

Vintage Art Decorates Walls

Multiple televisions, a colorful vintage art collection and plenty of seating makes this media room the place to be come game night.

Luxury Garage and Workshop

With room enough for multiple cars, this luxe garage also has a secluded workshop.

Screened-In Porch With Stone Floor

A screened-in porch is a fun way to enjoy meals almost outdoors, only without the bugs and blistering heat. Ceiling fans keep a breeze constantly circulating.

Detailed Look at Backyard

Back behind the mansion, a covered porch gives way to expansive lawns, walkways and gardens. There's also a tucked-away lap pool when it's just too darn hot.

Green Awnings Complement Yard

The home features sporty green trim and striped awnings, a complementary tie-in with expansive green lawns.

Stone Patio and Swimming Pool

On its 1.2 acres of land, this historic home fits in a lap pool among its extensive lawns and gardens.
