The home was described this way in a Dallas Times Herald article from Sept. 23, 1957, titled "Not a Splinter of Wood Used In Outstanding Home in Dallas":
Wood, the most frequently used material in homes, is completely shunned in the home of one Dallas family. There isn’t so much as a splinter of wood in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Martin Mayrath, 10707 Lennox Lane…Built on columns of steel, the two story house is constructed with aluminum, glass, concrete and Austin stone. It may look like a country club at first glance, but it is a luxury home—one that probably is not equaled in the vast Southwest.
The 5,240 square foot home has five bedrooms, five full bathrooms and one half bath. It is situated on a 2.29-acre lot and has three additional structure...a cabana with pool room, bar, and two bathrooms; a one-bedroom apartment; and an office with windows on three sides.
The feature, however, mentioned most often in comments about the impending teardown is the pristine set of mint green Geneva cabinets in the kitchen. With luck, they will find a deserving and appreciative home instead of ending up in a dumpster.
Another architecturally significant home comes down. I suppose most people would call this progress, but I'm not so sure.
