Let’s just clarify for clarity’s sake: Dallas home prices are breaking records, y’all, and if you want a great home inside the loop, you’re going to pay for it. There was quite a debate in the comments of our Tuesday Two Hundred, a super-cute Craftsman home in Sunset Hill that is priced at $239,000. Some folks felt that was too steep. Others thought the renovation was too modern and not true to the architecture of the home.
Allie Beth Allman agent Julie Coats Frakes had me raked in when she said this lovely home near the M Streets area had been updated recently, and included an upstairs master suite with its own elevated deck and entry.
I have always loved these townhomes, which were among the first to go up in the Farmers Market area before the residential building boom this neighborhood has recently experienced. They are the first homes you can spot if you take Canton downtown on your morning commute, and they’re just past Bark Park Central, another favorite Farmers Market/Deep Ellum spot.
Thursday Three Hundred, Romance Week Edition: Beautiful Greenland Hills Tudor is a Vintage Love Affair
Sometimes Realtors describe a home as “charming” or “romantic,” and you check out the listing only to find the same builder-grade cabinets, tired hardwood or laminate floors, the same-old granite counters, and blah, blah, blah. The home was probably charming or romantic once, but all the charm and romance has since been renovated out of the home.
Thursday Three Hundred: Adorable Santa Monica Home is Cozy, Quaint, And in One of The Best Neighborhoods in Dallas
It seems like every week someone tells us what a fantastic neighborhood Hollywood-Santa Monica is. Cassie, Candy’s wonderful and generous daughter, moved there just last year. Our staging expert Karen Eubank lives there, as does Realtor Britt Lopez. It’s a super hot neighborhood!
Stonewall Terrace is a fantastic neighborhood. The homes are adorable, there are restaurants and shops everywhere, there are tons of pedestrians and cyclists, nearby mass transit, and there’s easy access to North Central Expressway. But what really makes Stonewall Terrace a fantastic family neighborhood is its namesake elementary campus, Stonewall Jackson Elementary.
Thursday Three Hundred: Talk About Transitional! This Merriman Park Updated Ranch Will Delight Your Eyeballs
We were driving to the SuperTarget at Skillman and Abrams this weekend when I screamed at my dear, sweet husband, Dave, “STOP THE CAR! I NEED TO GET THIS ADDRESS!”
Thursday Three Hundred: This Oak Cliff Home is a Tudor on The Outside, Delightfully Modern on The Inside
So, you love all the charm of older homes but the idea of all the unending maintenance is a huge bummer for you. I have one word: PREACH. That’s why we left Junius Heights when one thing after another, then another, happened and our dream home turned into a money pit, and guys, I wanted to enjoy living in a house, not a construction zone!
Built in 1951 and recently renovated, this Glenridge Estates Midcentury is just what you need to forget Icemaggedon 2013. Forget the crazy weather, broken limbs, insane wait times to talk to an Oncor representatives, and just grab a cup of coffee and think calming thoughts while you check out this gorgeous home.
Thursday Three Hundred: Lovely Little Wilshire Heights Home is Cozy and Cute, With a Splendid Backyard
Yes, we talk a lot about Lakewood Elementary and how amazing it is, thanks to a very active parent group, the Lakewood Early Childhood PTA. But let’s not forget that there are other great elementary schools in this area, including Stonewall Jackson Elementary.
