You remember our post about the estate sale over at 6243 La Vista. The home, a historic treasure that had been lovingly preserved by Willetta Stellmacher, will hit the market soon, listed by none-other than Elizabeth Mast.
Mast, the foremost Realtor for the Swiss Avenue area, plans to take her time freshening the Landmark Stubbs home and staging it to show off its colorful history and beautiful details. She plans to list the five-bedroom, four-full-and-two-half-bath estate this coming April for $1.5 million. Mast will stage the home using some of Stellmacher’s incredible collection of antiques and showbiz memorabilia. Continue reading
How I love this home! Seriously, how could you not love this Prairie-style one-story in Vickery Park just from the curb. I bet people hit the brakes when passing 5226 Richard Ave. all the time, just to slow down and admire shutters, bright white porch, and the rich “Stiffkey Blue” exterior paint on the broad wood siding. This is the only blue Valentine I’d ever want!
Monday Morning Millionaire: Still Have a Holiday Hangover? Start Fresh in This Bright And Lovely Traditional
Classic. That’s how I’d describe this stunning traditional near Saint Mark’s School of Dallas. It’s a beautiful home that is grand without being pretentious in an area that is safe, accessible, and filled with caring neighbors and families.
Monday Morning Millionaire: Contemporary Amenities With a Texas Flair, This Lennox Lane Home Uses Natural Light to Bring it to Life
Just a block away from the much-famed Strait Lane is Lennox Lane, a street brimming with homes just as amazing and luxurious in an area that is known for its exclusivity. You’ll find some of the most unique architecture in this talked-about neighborhood — Roxbury Park — and 10427 Lennox Lane is no exception.
Rangers 2B Ian Kinsler Traded to Detroit For Prince Fielder, But Will The Longtime Dallas Resident Sell His University Park Mansion?
My husband was absolutely grief stricken Wednesday evening when reports rolled in that Ian Kinsler, longtime infielder for the Texas Rangers, was traded to Detroit for Prince Fielder plus $30 million in cash.
Sure, a fresh coat of paint is necessary for a home heading for the market, but it won’t make a $250,000 home into a $325,000 home. And while 8806 Rolling Rock is a good, balanced contemporary home, it’s a listing that’s fallen victim to optimistic pricing.
Why Buy When You Can Look? Owner of Oswald Rental in Oak Cliff Is Giving Tours of Alleged JFK Assassin’s Room
I understand Pat Hall’s need to pay the bills on the Oak Cliff home where alleged JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald lived, but I doubt opening its doors to tourists will get the house sold. Hall, whose mother rented a room in the Beckley Avenue home to Oswald for $8 a week, is seeking $500,000 for the whole shebang according to DMN reporter Roy Appleton. Continue reading
Living Luxe in Southlake: Merlene Ingraham is Selling Her Gorgeous Southlake Home to Move Closer to Dallas’ Culture
Southlake is such a fabulous town, with great schools, incredible shopping, and beautiful neighborhoods. I just love this area, which is perfect for families with school-aged kids. But what if your nest is empty and you’re not expecting a boomerang kid? Downsizing has probably crossed your mind.
An anonymous reader sent us this message this week, which started a discussion between me and Candy:
I have a real pet peeve with some home listings I’ve seen recently. If a client is paying a realtor to list their home, the LEAST the realtor can do is a professional listing. When I see things like this I think that either the realtor can’t be bothered with the property or is not very bright. Either way it’s sloppy and to me reflects poorly on the agent and the property.
Be prepared for the loud cheering that will come from every car departing carpool lanes on Aug. 26 as parents throughout North Texas celebrate the first day of school. No more hearing “I’m bored!” every five seconds! No more shuttling to camps! No more packing and unpacking trunks! And of course, think of all you’ll get done during the day without a kid dragging their feet behind you!
