About Douglas Barrilleaux
I am a south Louisiana native who spent the last 12 years in Dallas and 9 of those refurbishing this Prairie Style home. We love this house and hope that you will as well. We were very torn on our move back to Louisiana and away from Dallas and our St. Thomas community that we were so fond of. We did not have the heart to sell the home we have so many good memories of, and have not ruled out returning to it at some point in time.
Douglas Barrilleaux purchased this House in 2003
Why Douglas Barrilleaux chose Junius Heights
This home is conveniently located in East Dallas. It is a very short drive to the Dallas Convention Center (3.8 mi) and anything else in the downtown area. Convenient access to I30, 135, I45 or Central Expressway. Whole Foods is just down the street along with Starbucks and many other local conveniences. The Sante Fe trail is located 2 blocks away for the joggers and bikers, and there are tennis courts just around the corner. Tenison Golf Course (public) is approximately 2 miles away and Lakewood Golf Course (private) is less than that. This house is located in the Historic Junius Heights District next to Lakewood and Hollywood Heights. With the pool in the back yard and pool table in the game room, there is plenty to keep everyone occupied while visiting. Come stay with us and you'll be sure to have a good time.

We are sooo very grateful to have been able to stay in this beautiful home!!!
Thank you soooo very much to the owners!!!
Roomy enough for our family get together. Bonus to have two places in one property.
We had a great time. Two of my sister's and our families met up for a weekend. The house was big enough to accommodate all of us. Kitchens had enough pans and utensils to use. The pool was great.
Neat period home with ample sleeping and bathroom space convenient to many attractions.
Our family group really enjoyed our stay here. The backyard pool was the star of the show, sparkling and refreshing in the early July heat. The “grandparent unit” used the back house and liked the peace and quiet while remaining close to those adorable grandkids. Lots of TV sets for the media generation. All in all, a decent value for the cost.
Our stay was awesome the house is beautiful in a great location!
The house is beautiful it's in a great location we never got bored there was always something to do whether we wanted to go out and explore the town or stay home and hang out by the pool or just cuddle up with some popcorn and watch a movie!
Fantastic home with all the right character
I was fortunate to spend a weekend in this house while in Dallas for a SEC football game. The house was in great shape, each room has it's own feel and charm, the dining room was a fantastic gathering place for friends and meal time.
The house is very large, has room for numerous families to be comfortable, the back pool house apartment has a second full kitchen and game room.
I would recommend this property to anyone, the house far surpassed my groups expectations.
The friendly home owners checked on us upon arrival and then gave us privacy the rest of the weekend. This is one of the nicest homes I've rented online. 5+ Star.
