Friday Five Hundred: Remodeled German Contemporary on La Vista Looks Traditional on The Outside, But It’s All Modern
Happy Friday! It’s wedding season, so I know a lot of you are headed out of town. I’ll keep things short and sweet: This house is amazing, you’re going to love it, and someone is going to buy it before you can get your checkbook out.
Cargo container homes don’t have to look like they just got off the boat.
I enjoy exercising my curiosity. Just a few days ago I heard that there was a home being built on Peavy Road out of shipping containers. Sounds interesting, to say the least, so of course I had to investigate.
We’ve talked about this gorgeous Alger Park/Ash Creek home. It’s 9774 Twin Creek, and this fully remodeled mid-century beauty went under contract just 30 days after listing.
That’s thanks in large part to dynamic Realtor Janice Parsons with Dave Perry-Miller & Associates. She marketed the heck out of this property, staging and adding this amazing artwork, and made sure that her clients got top dollar for all the work they put into it.
This little house is just right for a family. At 2722 Lawtherwood Ct., you are within walking distance of White Rock Lake and right next to a private greenbelt. This is such a great home for parents of young children, especially considering the great Dallas ISD schools in the area.

Burton Knight is a smart fellow — he has a horticulture degree from my alma mater, Texas A&M University — but all the wits in the world might not be enough to win a fight against Dallas City Hall.
It’s My Mansion: Sure, The Market is Moving Fast, But Can Optimistic Listing Prices Get Out of Hand?
I really do like this little house in the San Juan Heights area of Casa View Haven. It’s a three bedroom, two bath post-war traditional in an up-and-coming area of East Dallas. There’s a lot of community involvement, and lots of young families moving in. This is a great house for a middle-class couple with two young kids to make their own.
If you have young children, this isn’t the house for you. Everyone else, listen up: THIS HOUSE IS AH-MAZING.
Because this home is situated pretty much right on top of a creek, it would be exceptionally hard to keep a willful toddler from injuring himself or costing you your sanity, so that’s why I say that this home isn’t for families with little ones. On the flip-side, the creek view is fantastic, and would you get a load of that deck? Beautiful.
Friday Four Hundred: Lake Park Estates is The New Honeypot of East Dallas, Y’all, And This House on Galway Proves It
I’m going to get real with y’all.
*Turns chair around and sits in it backward*
I love East Dallas, and I live close to Lake Park Estates. It’s a fantastic neighborhood full of great homes and good people. And this house, well, I just want to let you know that it’s awesome, and if you’re as awesome as this house, then yeah, this neighborhood could be for you.
It’s been almost a year since that freak hail storm demolished roofs throughout Lakewood and East Dallas, leaving many of the slate and clay-tile roofs on Swiss Avenue in pieces.
Some homes that line Swiss have gotten new roofs only within the last few weeks. It’s incredible, to me at least, that these historic properties have sat with only a blue tarp protecting their interiors from the elements for more than nine months.
Friday Four Hundred: A Tudor That Feels Modern, Sleek, And Still Has Tons of Great Details? And in Hollywood Heights, to Boot!
We feature around five or six great homes every week, and some listings are better than others. I have my favorites, and I’m allowed to pick and choose. It’s a privilege that comes with writing for the top real estate blog in Dallas.
