Anton Korn designed many impressive homes in Dallas and Highland Park. It appears that he was the only architect of his caliber to be so involved in speculative homes in the 1920s. He might have even been the owner or partner in a home building company. Besides several homes on Swiss Avenue, from 1917 to 1920 he designed houses for Hugh E. Prather, Highland Park; Mrs. Cicero Smith, Beverly Drive; William Bacon, Beverly Drive; Hugh Bell, St. John’s Drive; Worth Wimberley, Beverly Drive; Thomas Morrissey, Turtle Creek Boulevard; and Henry Boazman, Maple Avenue. The Beverly Drive property was designed in 1924 utilizing replaned oak timbers from the grand Oriental Hotel when it was torn down. Ted Larson was a renovating architect of 3708 Alice Circle, which was originally designed by Anton Korn in 1924. Korn’s Tudor design can also be seen at 4500 Lakeside, 4328 Overhill and 5505 Keller Springs Road. At 4700 Preston Road he designed the home in a Georgian or Colonial Revival style.
