Friday Five Hundred JFK Week: Bringing the Past to the Present, Walnut Hill Ranch Has Been Remade Into a Modern Beauty
Built in 1959 and reimagined as a contemporary home for today, this ranch at 4242 Walnut Hill is an excellent example of how you can convert an older, less-functional home into a showstopper. Let’s look at some “before” pictures, which show some of the hallmarks of this building style.
Friday Five Hundred: With Curb Appeal Galore, Gorgeous Mid-Mod in Sought-After Meadows Will Move Fast!
You don’t see a whole lot of midcentury modern homes in this area of North Dallas, so expect this gorgeous home at 7208 Mimosa to go fast! This is one of those homes that begs for a great twilight exterior shot — it showcases the details of what makes this home so stunning! The symmetry! The clerestory windows! The ample front yard! All of it really draws you in from the curb — a great asset when it comes to marketing a property, that’s for sure.
Let’s talk about Hill Haven Heights, OK? I love this area. It is a fabulous neighborhood bordered by North Central Expressway, Hillcrest, Forest, and Royal, so it’s extremely accessible. It’s also full of great single-family homes and a few great condo communities. It’s not far from the Park Cities, Preston Hollow, or the scads of shopping options lining Highway 75.
Dear Party People,
You know who you are. You’re the person who lives for Friday. You’ve got weekend plans solidified and RSVP’d weeks in advance. Your bar only has a top shelf. You have an iPod that has playlists for pretty much any occasion you or Martha Stewart could dream up. You have a cocktail repertoire even the most seasoned mixologist can envy.
You don’t have to head for the ‘burbs if you want to spread out. That’s what this gorgeous condo in State Thomas — a wonderful Uptown enclave — will make you see. It’s cozy and bright and spacious without sparing the luxury finishes you’d expect in this area.
We were thrilled to get this adorable, fresh-to-MLS listing from Coldwell Banker Lakewood agent Robby Sturgeon last night. Seriously, y’all, this is a rare bird for Hollywood Heights, and I am so sure it’ll get snapped up in no time.
When Ray Kira sent us this home, I didn’t have a few spare moments to really get a good look at why he had considered it “a great property worth sharing.” But last night, as I was catching up on the last few emails I missed while I was out of town last week, I saw just exactly what he meant.
Oh. My. Gawd. Talk about perfection! Talk about terrific transitional! Talk about House P! This unbelievably gorgeous Forest Knoll home at 4147 Hockaday has been renovated all the way to amazing, no?
Friday Five Hundred: Straight Out of a Wisteria Catalog, This Lake Highlands Home Will Knock You Over
I am going to be pinning the hell out of these listing photos, y’all. Don’t let me be the only one. Seriously, from the exposed beam ceilings, the expert whitewashed look, and the pops of color that just suck you in, this Lake Highlands home is just perfection.
This house kills me dead! I am already fond of Russell Buchanan‘s work. He’s the award-winning architect behind the Mockingbird Lane box house we reported on last week. If you weren’t bowled right on over by that amazing home, then this one will knock your stinking socks off!
