This home is just a great combination of old-world charm and new-world conveniences in one of the most coveted and accessible historic districts in Dallas. And considering that 5101 Victor will be open on Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m., you can drop in and check it out after you’ve had brunch at the Swiss Avenue Mother’s Day Home Tour.
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.
Friday Four Hundred: Best of Both Worlds in Vickery Park! Historic District Charm With All-New Interiors!
This is exactly the kind of home I like. It’s in a quaint and accessible historic district near a ton of amenities, and it’s got absolutely none of the problems you often find with historic homes, such as horrible ventilation, mis-matched kitchens, sloping foundations, a complete lack of closet space, and antiquated bathrooms.
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.
When some people buy midcentury modern homes, they tend to keep all the things they love about them — the windows, the stone accents, the woodwork — and ditch everything they don’t — kitchens and bathrooms. But there are those homeowners who instead embrace the details and workmanship in these houses. They preserve pretty much everything in them, not just the things that are popular.
Friday Four Hundred: Munger Heights Home Pairs Historic Charm With New Construction And an Amazing Kitchen
I’ve lived in a 1921 Craftsman home in Junius Heights, and while I loved all of the cool details, such as the hardwood trim around the windows, the expansive front porch, and the window seat in the master bedroom that overlooked the garden, I hated how drafty it was and the awful water pressure.
Sometimes I run across a home that has me wondering if the builder was psychic or something. The house will have some cool finish or feature that I didn’t even know I wanted, but after ogling that listing, it becomes something I can’t live without.

Friday Four Hundred: Hold Onto Your Hat, Because This Gorgeous M Streets Cottage Will Blow You Away!
Oh my gawd I LOVE this house! I’ve seen a lot of renovation jobs — some turning out bland, some just plain butt ugly — and when you see a complete, to-the-studs renovation go right it’s like nirvana. Your toes get all tingly and your check-writing finger gets itchy and, well, you just have to have it!
Friday Four Hundred: Modern On The Inside, There’s Nothing Claustrophobic About This Kessler Highlands Tudor
One of the reasons I’m not a huge fan of Tudors is that they are notoriously cramped and crowded on the inside, with wall, after wall, after wall separating rooms from one another. I love the way they look on the outside, though, with the high-pitched roofs and the brick exteriors, and there are tons of them in Kessler Highlands.
