The late Bud Oglesby‘s reputation only grows into legendary status, thanks to his magnificent architectural designs and his creative use of materials. To say it’s difficult to improve on an Oglesby masterpiece is an understatement, but this 2,114-square-foot residence does. Thanks to a brilliant understanding and appreciation for Oglesby’s commitment to perfection, the recent renovations to this exquisite two-story home enhance the designer’s original plans with today’s conveniences and advances.
The 20-foot-high gallery, just off the entry, with its polished concrete floors and museum-white walls, is flooded with natural light from the quadrant of oversized skylights. The flexibility of the space allows it to function in a variety of ways — from intimate dining to lavish entertaining. Just beyond the gallery is a spacious living room, highlighted by a floor-to-ceiling glass wall with sliding door that opens onto the landscaped courtyard shaded by mature trees. Punctuating the glass wall is a fireplace encased in striking custom steel panels.
Adjacent to the living room is a dining space opening to both the kitchen and courtyard. The gourmet kitchen features custom Danby marble counters and white oak cabinetry. The stainless appliances include a Bertazzoni gas range with convection oven, Liebherr refrigerator, and under-the-counter wine refrigerator.
The dramatic custom steel and white oak staircase leads to the second floor, which is finished with white oak flooring throughout. The master bedroom features a fireplace with custom surround, sitting area, and a balcony overlooking the backyard. The spa-like master bath includes marble counters with double sinks and custom cabinets, as well as a white-tiled shower room with soaking tub and frosted glass wall overlooking the treetops. The walk-in master closet contains built-in custom cabinetry.
A stunning glass and steel bridge overlooks the gallery and connects the master to the utility room and a second bedroom. This bedroom includes a walk-in closet with additional under-eave storage, along with an ensuite bath surrounded in white tile.
With a metal roof, powder room, sound system, gated alley and two-car garage, the home is conveniently located near the Katy Trail and the Knox/Henderson/Uptown shops and restaurants.

Lush parkways, towering trees, and character-filled homes make Greenway Parks one of the most family-friendly neighborhoods in the city. Here you’ll find clusters of homes centered on long stretches of private parkways known as “greenbelts” – an innovative concept when first developed in 1927, and the key characteristic that sets it apart today.
Named one of the first pedestrian-oriented neighborhoods in Dallas by the National Historic Register, it’s a place where people live to be outdoors.
