White Rock Lake Texas Modern Home
Wilson McClure designed many beautiful homes in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. Many of these had a Georgian influence, but this home on Chapel Hill, built in 1940, is pure Texas Modern. It was designed as one of the three original homes on the east side of White Rock Lake. Wilson McClure always devoted much space to the living room, which he certainly did in this home. The living room had wide passage ways to the screened-in porch overlooking the deep ravine carved by Humbard’s Branch. The diagonal beveled plank ceiling, knotty pine and standing seam metal roof were also used in the David Williams and O’Neil Ford homes built a few years earlier.
