House by John deKoven Hill in Fort Worth

Post by row1concorde »

Might anyone have any information or photos of 1900 Canterbury Drive in Fort Worth? It is attributed by Taliesin to John deKoven Hill, circa 1977, as the Lee Paulsel Residence. It does exist, at the corner of Canterbury Drive and Indian Creek Drive. (I discovered it yesterday, on a driving tour of the Westover Hills neighborhood.) I'd love to see photos and know more!

From the air, it certainly looks like it came out of someone at Taliesin, but the heavy tree cover doesn't allow a good view. Hill's work shown online is mostly limited to the Corbett House in Cincinnati, OH, especially the grille work. He is perhaps the most overlooked apprentice of all, and one of the best.
