Our second Cocktails For Preservation reception will be

presented at the incredible Paigebrooke Farm in Westlake, Texas! 

In 1938, Charles Dilbeck designed this ever sprawling residence for publisher Ted Dealey of the Dallas Morning News.  Sixty years later Scott and Kelly Bradley spent a decade relocating the home which required cutting it into six sections and reassembling the 11,500 square foot home at its new location. The restoration of the house, which the Bradleys owned since 1977, was paramount and every detail is pure perfection. This is serious preservation you do not want to miss!

A complimentary shuttle to Westlake is available for guests to enjoy an exclusive tour of this amazing Dilbeck design, with so many of his wonderful quirky details intact. Explore the house and grounds with Sangria and refreshments, while enjoying the classical guitar music of Dallas Allegro Guitar Society’s Chris McGuire. A special bonus for our guests will be touring the guest’s Dilbeck-esque pond house designed by architect Nancy McCoy.

The shuttle will leave Preservation Dallas at 10 am and return approximately at 2 pm.  The shuttle is optional however reservations for a ride are required.



$100 for Preservation Dallas members
$125 for the public

Reservations are strictly required and non-refundable.  Make reservations here.

On the morning of November 14 we launched our Cocktails For Preservation program with great fanfare.  Our inaugural reception, Brunch At Bellosguardo, let our guests see Turtle Creek as they have never seen it before.  Homeowner and author, Robert Edsel, personally toured attendees through the historic Hess House and grounds discussing methods used to restore and preserve this significant 1926 Hubert Hammond Crane design.  Thank you Robert Edsel, Madeline Jobst, Harwood Catering and Ben E. Keith Company for making this opportunity possible.
