What Do You Think of This AIA Design-Award House? (Excuse Me, I’m Not Impressed…)

Published August 17, 2011 by Candy Evans

I know this is a one of a kind Mid-century Modern masterpiece designed by architect John Barthel for his personal residence in 1959. And I know it is the winner of the 2002 AIA Design Award. And I know it’s probably one of our more shining examples of Mid-century Modern in Dallas, excluding the Frank Lloyd Wright house over on Rockbrook.

And I know it made the New York Times last month because it’s such an amazing deal at $425,000.

8931 Capri Court is listed by Virginia Cook’s Ed White, who is our very own MCM home specialist. He calls it a sculptural piece of art set on a lush green carpet. Four bedrooms, two baths, two stories, on almost half an acre. The interiors are great. But I just think it looks, I don’t know, like a spaceship or something.

Is the heat getting to me?
