Peek inside the eclectic Highland Park home of Flea Style founder Brittany Cobb

Brittany Cobb, Dallas entrepreneur and owner of homewares and clothing store Flea Style, listed her historic home Monday. It went under contract Thursday. The home lends itself to plenty of design inspiration.

Built in 1930 by Highland Park Village architects Marion Fooshee and James Cheek, the home has the same Spanish style as the shopping center, which sets it apart from other historic designs.

Listing agent Amy Messer of Compass said it’s rare to find one of these designs on the market.

“These original Fooshee-and-Cheeks don’t pop up very often,” Messer said, acknowledging that the architect’s notability is likely why it sold so quickly.

The home sits on an 80-foot-wide lot, and Messer said that this is a rare find in the area. She estimates that most homes sit on 50-foot lots. The entirety of the property is nearly 0.23 acres, and the house is 4,146 square feet.

When the Cobb family purchased the home in 2011, they reconfigured the four-bedroom, four-bathroom home entirely, including functional updates like new windows and a tile roof. The downstairs layout was redesigned and includes a living room with a colorful stained-glass window, a sun room, a formal dining area and the kitchen.

The primary suite sits on the first floor and has two French doors that provide access to the pool and views of the green, tiled fountain. The bedroom has an en suite bathroom with a claw-foot tub.

Upstairs, a second living area sits with the three remaining bedrooms, bathrooms, an office and a laundry room.

Because of the lot’s width, the pool and surrounding seating area fits on the side of the home. A cabana sits nearby with a bathroom. At the rear of the home, there is more landscaping and an area that leads to the guest house and garage. On the opposite side of the home, there’s an additional courtyard.

The guest house is 600 square feet and has a bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette.

4509 Westway went under contract on July 9, but was listed by Amy Messer of Compass for $1,900,000.
