Hugh Cullen Mansion At 1620 River Oaks Blvd.


Recommended Posts

The simple answer is to look for a copy of Howard Barnstone's book _The Architecture of John F. Staub_. That will get you a lot of the ones from the '20s, '30s and '40s. Newer mansions are often not documented anywhere because their owners strongly desire privacy. Check the har.com listings from time to time.

1620 River Oaks Blvd (at Inwood) is the Staub-designed home of Hugh Roy Cullen, later owned by Oscar and Lynn Wyatt and now home to the Flores family, who did a massive and sympathetic remodeling of the home and grounds, adding spectacular gardens and a sunken swimming pool.

3800 Willowick at Knollwood is the Tillman Fertitta family compound. According to HCAD it was built between 1999 and 2001. That may be off a little, but it's clearly a newer home.

Yes, the loss of Dogwoods and of the Mitchell house both were heartbreaking.
