Magnificent Manor Dallas Mt. Vernon Circa 1928

The Mt. Vernon of Texas

Find this impressive historic mansion estate eight miles north of downtown Dallas, on a ten acre site facing beautiful White Rock Lake. This exquisite property is a replica of the national landmark Mount Vernon which was George Washington’s home.

Dallas’s Mount Vernon is a Neoclassical Georgian home that was begun in 1928 and finished in 1930 by Thomas Y. Pickett. It was then owned from 1938 to 2000 by H. L. Hunt, a famed Texas oil tycoon who, at the time of his death in 1974 was the richest man in the world. Specimen live oak and pecan trees planted by Mrs. Hunt still adorn the majestic property.

Much of the original structure remains including hardwood plank floors, doors and wainscoting, foot-thick concrete walls, marble fireplaces and hearths. Modern updates have been made over the years including a bowling alley, tennis court, heated in-ground pool and outdoor kitchen complete with a pizza oven.

The property is also adjacent to the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, one of the number one tourist attractions in Dallas. It is very close to the city but you will feel like a part of nature with the animals you can witness such as deer, squirrels and the occasional bobcat.
