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!
Monday Morning Millionaire Extravaganza! Serenity House Hits the Market on Greenwich For a Serene $1.695 Million
First up, if this home is still available after I hit “publish”, well, I’ll be a monkey’s uncle. It is beautiful, it is a bargain. You have heard me wax on and on about Michael Turner’s “Serenity House” at 6720 Greenwich Lane in Dallas north of Forest. Michael is, of course, one of our highly selective Candy’s Approved Home Builders: we INVITE them to be on the blog after we have talked to homeowners who have worked with them. 6720 is an award winning property built for Steve and Terri Woodward, Steve being a marketing executive at Fossil. I believe the home has won 7 ARC awards, an industry award to recognize building excellence for Associates, Remodelers and Custom Builders. Both Steve and Terri had great input on the home from start to finish, the blueprints evolving from a single napkin drawing one cold night. The home-passionate couple personally selected Michael to build their 4050 square foot masterpiece of brick and glass, reinforced with steel. The floor plan is basically three sides of a rectangle: the first floor master and a jewelry studio create the east wing, the guest bedroom and a built-in bar create the west — what a nice treat for guests, eh? In front facing north are the formal living room, dining room and kitchen. There is even a modern-style front porch to invite neighborly chats. The home is one of the warmest examples of modern design I have seen in a long time.
It’s not like you have to do a background check on every single client who contacts you when you are a Realtor. But then again yes, maybe you do! When you have agents’ faces plastered all over glossy mags and billboards, they are noticeable but maybe to the wrong people.
So, I had a plumbing disaster at my White Rock Lake-area postwar traditional, so I’m reporting from our Forney bureau today as a means of escape from a horde of noisy dryer fans and dehumidifiers.
Like we usually do when it comes to dissin’ and discussin’ high-priced real estate in Dallas Your Mama gave the deliciously dishy Dallas-based property gossip Candy Evans a ringy-dingy and asked if she thought there was much of a market for a $135,000,000 house in Dallas.
There may very well be a market for an $135 million house in Dallas, but it’s a small one, as Candy said. You never know, right? Still, as Your Mama pointed out, you’re going to need big bucks and a lot of water to run this place. Natch:
Want To Waltz Through This Preston Hollow Abode Like You Own The Place? Get in Line This Sunday, Because It’s Not on MLS!
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.
Jenni Stolarski and Rob Puckett of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s are marketing two Stevens Park Village homes that back up to one another and sit on the fifth green of Stevens Park Golf Course —2036 Old Orchard and 2041 Mayflower — as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a family to be really close without moving in with each other.
