Beloved Dr. D's Homestead is ready for a new generation to love and nurture. Located in the beautiful White Mountains of Arizona a young doctor and his wife purchased acreage in Lakeside in the 1940's. Tthey lovingly cleared the land built roads and barns and drilled a well. Many members of the community helped in the building of the Dysterheft home which was built in 1956. Architect Carl Lamar John designed the home in 1955 and it was completed in 1956.There are so many wonderful details in the home- Three fireplaces were built with bricks hand selected by Dr. D . The Entry-Living room and upstairs fireplaces as well as chimney's all are from the old ''Power'' house in McNary. They are ''Fire'' bricks.The long beams in both the living room and upstairs sunroom were a a special cut by Turnbull and Henning from the local mill.
The wood paneling in the upstairs sunroom was all hand picked and milled to have NO knots. Favorite rooms in the home are the main living which a has long beams- expansive windows and the hand picked brick fireplace. The upstairs sunroom is spacious and also features a gorgeous brick fireplace and hardwood oak floors along with a wall of windows.
