Paigebrook Farm
Westlake, Texas

This very unique project included the accurate documentation of one of architect Charles Dilbeck's best residential designs followed by the moving of the house to a new site within a 90-day timeframe. This 1937 residence was over 300 feet long and clad primarily in brick and stone.

Following its move, the residence was re-installed and its masonry re-constructed on new ground with an extensive addition that nearly doubled the size of the home. New electrical and mechanical systems that included geo-thermal air conditioning and radiant heat floors were sensitively integrated.

The addition was designed to be visually integrated with the historic residence and its impact on the historic character of the home was minimized by placing much of the new space in the basement and as a separate guest house wing.

Nancy McCoy served this project as Project Manager/Architect and designer for ARCHITEXAS.
