This perfectly preserved mid-century house in Northern Dallas will transport you back to the 1950s. Its over-the-top retro styling, complete with a flamingo-pink Cadillac sitting in the driveway, make it a perfect home for a design aficionado with a particular interest in mid-century modern. Virginia Cook Realtors have recently listed this quirky and extravagant property which is currently on sale for $665,000.
Originally designed by renowned architect Gordon Nichols in 1954 and restored by its current owner, graphic designer Carlos Cardoza in 1994, the four-bedroom house features an open-plan layout, original cabinetry, a retro swimming pool and vaulted ceilings.
It is located at 11016 Pinocchio Drive, one among several roads in Dallas named after Disney characters and part of a post-war development project built in the 1950s by the National Association of Home Builders. Cardoza restored the house and embraced bubblegum colors, sci-fi shapes and technicolor textiles as some of the trademarks of the era. Thanks to his efforts, the house looks as if it hasn’t aged a day.
