4. Lark Owen Daniel Mansion 2011 List
Daniel purchased 27 acres of land in the country just outside of Oak Cliff in 1901. As an expression of his wealth, a 5000 square-foot wood frame Colonial Revival mansion was built on this property in 1905. Surrounded by orchards and sitting on a hill, the Daniel family resided in luxury, complete with servants, damask and dinner bells.
Chicago Title took very good care of the landmark for years but moved over a year ago. The structure has been vacant and neglected since. Paint is peeling and railing on the third floor is falling off. The City of Dallas Landmark needs someone to love it.
