I love guest cottages! It’s the perfect solution for older kids who come back home from college for winter or summer break and are too used to being independent to have them in close proximity with civilized people.
Live in the city long enough, and the very things you love about urban life can become what grates on your spirit day after day. We often move to cities to be close to things — shopping, museums, parks, other people — but sometimes we miss being able to connect with nature and enjoy privacy.
Here’s a house that makes me just swoon! This Winnetka Heights Craftsman at 200 N. Windomere is totally flirty, especially that master suite!
Like most too-cute Oak Cliff homes, this one is marketed by Crystal Gonzalez of David Griffin & Co. Seriously, she seems to get the best listings! This adorable house, which has three bedrooms, two baths, and more than 2,000 square feet, is priced at a recently reduced $334,000. I think that might be the sweet spot for this listing.
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!
Brandon Stewart has left Ebby Halliday to park his license with David Griffin and Company Realtors. Brandon is one of the city’s more interesting agents: his background is in architecture– he’s an architect, in fact. Though he sells homes now and does not practice architecture, if you can use that phrase, he has one of the best modern home feeds in the town, and I scrutinize his site constantly for beautiful house porn for you, dear readers.
I’m mixing it up a little this week, mostly because I’ve been inspired. While driving home from White Rock Coffee a few weeks ago with my pal Joanna England, we passed this amazing house on East Lake Highlands. I don’t know if you’ve realized this about me yet, but I kinda dig mid-century modern design, and this place is THE perfect mid-century model without having to pour in all the money of updating an older home.

Thursday Three Hundred: Beautiful, Sleek, and Sexy — It’s Not a Model, But a Modern Marvel on Throckmorton Street
It’s funny how, just like their owners, houses have distinct personalities. I imagine some as refined Scotch drinkers who both have and are acquired tastes. Some are classics, some are works of art, and some are better off seeing the business end of a wrecking ball.
And some, well, they take your breath away like a gorgeous gal in a trendy sportscar. That’s 2712 Throckmorton, which is marketed by David Griffin himself! With all of the angles, textures, and colors, this home will get your engine running! Continue reading
Monday Morning Millionaire, II: One Arts Plaza Perfection — the Personal First Dibs Home of Lucy Billingsley
I caught up with the amazing agent and friend that is Scott Deakins the other day, fresh from his jumpola from David Griffin (with whom he remains, of course, great friends) to Briggs Freeman’s (beautiful) new Uptown digs in February. Scott is rather the proud papa of One Arts Plaza residential. He should be; he sold 50 of the 61 units. Only 3 (smaller, east-facing) developer units remain for sale in the $200 million building, which is the only downtown luxury condominium to mix commercial with residential living. Scott is as bullish on One Arts as a guy can be: units snapped up in 2007 have seen 10% appreciation already, he says, and HOAs at One Arts are among the lowest in town, thanks to the commercial neighbors who foot some of the bills: try .62 a square foot.
David’s dream team is growing like hotcakes! Handsome Robert Kucharski, buyer’s agent Paul Kirkpatrick and their assistant Kim Dunbar (a guy) joined forces with David Griffin & Company last week, moving over from Prudential. Robert’s work in Dallas is legendary, particularly in East Dallas and Oak Cliff, where he once listed the Mary Ellen Bentsen home on Swiss and now has 1504 Argonne Drive with over a half acre in Kessler Park listed at $1.295M. Recall that Keith Cox and David joined forces not long ago... I’d say things are not just heating up there in Kessler/Oak Cliff, they are downright nuclear…
I will just lay it right out: David Griffin and Keith Cox are two of my most favorite people in the world. David and I go way back to when he was marketing the W Residences — God, that makes me feel old! (But David looks so young!) He has always, always been bullish on downtown Dallas real estate and property Continue reading
