Fall Home Tour Preview I

Ivanadell / North Cliff Conservation District

This charming and unique Spanish Eclectic home was built in 1927 although the address doesn’t actually show up in the city’s telephone directories until 1933.  It was the first home built on the street and sat alone for six years.  The original owner was a contractor who had built similar but much larger homes on Colorado Blvd. around the same time.  He built his own 1000 square foot home here using similar materials and design elements from those mansions.

In an effort to preserve the character and architectural integrity of their neighborhood, area residents began the process of forming a conservation district.  The North Cliff Conservation District (CD 9) was formally created by the city of Dallas in 1994.  The five recognized architectural styles targeted for preservation are Tudor Revival, Arts and Crafts, Minimal Traditional, Spanish Eclectic and Prairie Foursquare.  The purpose of the district is to preserve these styles through architectural guidelines, development standards, and special provisions including zoning, land uses and setbacks.  The ordinance would ultimately save this home from the wrecking ball ten years later.
