I need some advice, folks. I live in a quaint little 1950s home in Casa Linda, and I’ve spend the better part of 4 1/2 years remodeling it. It’s come a long way, people, believe me. But today, I ran into one of my most perplexing decisions while trying to finish up the guest bath before our house guests come in for the weekend. Where the hell should I hang the toilet paper holder? Continue reading
I’m taking some classes over at UTA, so I thought I’d throw Arlington some love today. First of all, the house is HUGE. This jewel is 4,627 sq. ft. with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2 half baths, so let’s just say you’ll have plenty of places to hide if you some “me time” away from the fam. Continue reading
I’m mixing it up a little this week, mostly because I’ve been inspired. While driving home from White Rock Coffee a few weeks ago with my pal Joanna England, we passed this amazing house on East Lake Highlands. I don’t know if you’ve realized this about me yet, but I kinda dig mid-century modern design, and this place is THE perfect mid-century model without having to pour in all the money of updating an older home.

Guys, I’m in love yet again. Sitting on almost a half acre with a park view, 3860 Shorecrest Dr.–listed by Ebby’s Linda Jordan Hobbs–is just a hop, skip and a jump from Bachman Lake. Built in 1948, this gorgeous early mid-century modern feels like a livable work of art. Every time I went back through the property photos, I noticed another unique detail that I hadn’t before.

Speaking of mayors, former mayor Woodall Rodgers’ home at 5750 Swiss Ave is on the market, and this place has some serious history. It’s in need of some restoration, but with a little TLC, you can own a piece of Dallas history for under a million bucks. Continue reading
Tom Leppert’s place at 9925 Alva Court (once listed by Eleanor Sheets) will be up for grabs on MLS tomorrow morning. Mary Poss of Ebby Halliday will be the listing agent.
Mary describes Leppert’s home as “an absolute masterpiece.” Continue reading
I started writing about this house for the July 4th edition of Wishlist Wednesday, but due to the lack of WiFi on a West Texas excursion followed by a week in the Colorado mountains, I’ve been unable to share. But this three bedroom, two bath, 1,886 sq. ft. home at 4065 Beechwood Lane listed by Rogers Healy is definitely worth mentioning. A few weeks ago this house was listed at $395,000 but has now been reduced to $389,500!
Resting on a gorgeous 1.36 acres, this jewel in Oak Cliff’s West Kessler is a welcoming escape from the roar of the city. This beautifully remolded mid century modern at 808 N. Hampton Rd. is surrounded by rolling hills and mature vegetation. Spread out over a roomy 4,018 sq. ft., it has 3 bedrooms, 3.1 bathrooms and 3 living areas. And for those house guests that just can’t take a hint, there’s a guest suite with its own bedroom, living room, full bath and separate HVAC. Listed at only $900,000, this urban oasis is a steal. And it’s only about a mile from Bishop Arts District.
Admittedly, I’m a sucker for Ranch-styles, and this 1950 ranch-style, recently remodeled by Bella Vista Construction, has me drooling. I will dream about this kitchen tonight. It’s equipped with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, beautiful hardwood floors and plenty of natural light. Love the contrast of the industrial stove, barn wood island and industrial pendant lights.
After the news reports of the damage in Lakewood last night, I just had to see it for myself. Lakewood-area streets are littered with tree limbs and leaves and lined with cleanup crews and repairmen. The teams that weren’t already at work were circling the streets like hawks, but from the looks of the area, there will be plenty of work to go around. Continue reading
