Always Wanted a Peek Inside 5310 Wateka? Tour This Greenway Parks Gem Tomorrow

Published April 14, 2012 by Joanna England

Cliff May-designed 5310 Wateka, at Wateka and Inwood, will be open for onlookers tomorrow.

Preservation Dallas has done it again. Listen up, all of you Mid-Century Modernophiles: Cliff May’s award-winning 1948 Pace Setter House design is on display tomorrow.

May, who was a bastion of modern design, sketched up this Greenway Parks abode that was custom built and owned by all of one person, which is almost as amazing as the home itself.

The open plan and natural light is characteristic of Cliff May's take on modern design.

Much of its distinctive mid-century character is still intact.  ”Although the house is need of updates and repair, it retains a coveted, characteristic Cliff May aesthetic — an open floor plan and plentiful outdoor living spaces to connect the interior with nature,” says the notice from Preservation Dallas.

Markeeta McNatt Brown, whose parents built the home at 5310 Wateka, will be on hand tomorrow for the tour, which is at 10:30 a.m, as will Maribeth Missineo Peters, a Preservation Dallas board member who will discuss Greenway Parks — a notable Dallas neighborhood planned by Texas architect David Williams.

Admission is free for Preservation Dallas members, and $10 for nonmembers. For more information, contact Lisa Kays at 214-821-3290.
