Rare Treat: Architecturally Significant Hal Thomson Tudor Hits the Market


Original Hal Thomson design accentuating the landscape of Highland Park at the prominent intersection of Bordeaux and Preston is the essence of the important house. Present since the neighborhood’s inception, this stately manse has experienced magnificent manifestations, the ca. 2000 renovation and expansion by Tommy Ford, contractor, and the 2015 improvements under the curated direction of Cynthia Collins, Collins Interiors, Blue Print Design, Clay Snelling, remodeler, and Thomas Fancher, Plant Concierge. A herringbone- patterned walkway introduces the formidable façade with signature slate and brick patterns, attributable to architect Thomson.


Parallel horizontal hallways take advantage of the expansive .561-acre lot, linking living areas and providing an excellent environment for entertaining. Three first-floor living areas include a handsome Living Room; pine paneled Library and Great Room, accessed via the Loggia. Formidable fireplaces anchor the walls of the living rooms as well as the Breakfast Room. The original Powder Room rests beneath a gracious staircase. Kitchen, Breakfast and Butler’s Pantry occupy the west end of the first floor. A perfectly appointed kitchen includes Viking cook range, Center Island, Sub Zero refrigeration, ice-maker, double ovens and warming drawer. The Butlery boasts a floor-to-ceiling Traulsen wine chiller and bar sink.


Atop the gentle staircase, the sumptuous Master Suite with his and her bathrooms, office, wrapping room, three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and Laundry Room comprise the second floor. The private en-suite bedroom is located at the northwest corner, while the remaining two bedrooms rest at the west end of the landing. This pair of bedrooms shares a beautiful bath with separate shower, water closet, bathtub and twin vanities. The third floor perch houses the fifth bedroom, bath and common room. Cedar lined storage leads to the mechanical room. Signature Blue Print adornments enhance every detail of the bedrooms and baths.


The first floor Cabana and half bath serve the architecturally designed pool and spa. Slate floors are consistent with exterior hardscapes. Marble surfaced counters, an ice-maker and refrigerator compliment the Blue Print designed half bath. A fireplace creates a cozy atmosphere. An exercise room atop the cabana has direct access to the Master Suite. The outdoor gardens are professionally landscaped and the pool and spa enjoy Pennsylvania green stone. A brick lined motor court services the three-car garage, topped with full guest quarters. In a climate devoid of detail, this fine residence is beautiful to behold.


Excerpt from Great American Suburbs, the Homes of the Park Cities by Virginia Savage McAlester, Willis Winters and Prudence Macintosh:


Thomson’s gracious Tudor houses were often located on spacious lots on many of the best streets in the Park Cities. The residence at 4209 Bordeaux (Thomson & Swain) built in 1925 for James R. Bower, the president of an auto rental business and cab company, is one such house: a sprawling picturesque English manse, superbly conceived and detailed, and rendered in a rich palette of materials. The home’s spatial volumes and gables were wrapped in undifferentiated brick planes virtually devoid of the standard menu of Tudor details. The architect utilized taut planar surfaces to achieve a strikingly modern interpretation of the Tudor style. The house bears a close likeness to the work of the great English architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, whose Daneshill of 1903 anticipated the broad, flat masonry gables of the Bower home.
