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.
Hunter Dehn is modest about his success in real estate. With the Platinum Series Realty brand, he’s marketed some of the most expensive listings in Dallas, including 4939 Manson Court. With Mark Molthan’s Platinum Series Homes, these two are building and selling some of the most sought-after luxury properties in Dallas.
Of course, growing up in Preston Hollow surely helps understand the ins and outs of the area, and gives Dehn a lot of leverage in a luxury market where inventory is as scarce as it is competitive. Continue reading
This area is beyond hot — it’s smoking! Homes in the Ash Creek/Alger Park area are selling fast and for just about asking price — especially if they have been staged. This home has been staged by an expert, too, and I bet this listing — 9774 Twin Creek from Dave Perry-Miller agent Janice Parson — will get snapped up fast as well.
What does $174,000 get you in the Alger Park/Ash Creek area? More than you’d expect!
Marketed by Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s Justin Easterling, 9829 Coldwater Circle is an amazing value. You get three bedrooms, two full baths, a cool backyard, and you’re super close to White Rock Lake. In case you missed it, this area is on the way up!

Glendora seems to be the street du jour, no? And I love a good hip-pocket listing. It gives a property a certain exclusive cache, doesn’t it?
What’s better is a hip-pocket listing I love, and that’s 6446 Glendora. This home, built in 2001 by Hawkins Welwood, has 7,000 square feet of indoor space that manages to feel cozy, not cold. That’s thanks in part to the use of muted colors and natural finishes, and especially exposed wood beams.
I love quirky houses! If a home has character, a neat feature, or some really defining characteristic, I love it!
While it’s no Bio-Dome, this concrete-shell house has two bedrooms, two baths, and 2,100 square feet. You’ll love the secluded location, but you’ll have to learn to live with few windows in this home. I love the upstairs loft, though.
Yeehaw, folks. We sometimes joke around about “head rooms” and such here on CandysDirt.com, but this Celina mansion marketed by Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s own Brian Luker and David Bergher has a trophy room that earns a gold star in my book. Curbed National picked up this listing, calling it an “equestrian amusement park.”
And a gorgeous one at that. I think I’ve found my dream home, folks! This beautiful Cliff Welch-designed home in the Cloisters is perfect! You’re close to the lake, you get Lakewood schools (DISD), and it’s an incredibly private enclave!
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!
Monday Morning Millionaire: A Home Ready for Summer with Outdoor Kitchen, Stocked Private Pond and a ZIP LINE Over to Sean Payton’s
Kidding about the zip line over to Sean Payton’s, but not kidding one bit about this Southlake treasure. And yes, there is a zip line! I honestly cannot recall seeing a home this jam-packed with great goodies. I don’t even know where to begin to describe it all. This 2100 Kimball Hill Court is like paradise for a family with kids.
