Friday Four Hundred: Best of Both Worlds in Vickery Park! Historic District Charm With All-New Interiors!
This is exactly the kind of home I like. It’s in a quaint and accessible historic district near a ton of amenities, and it’s got absolutely none of the problems you often find with historic homes, such as horrible ventilation, mis-matched kitchens, sloping foundations, a complete lack of closet space, and antiquated bathrooms.
Location, location, location. This Lakewood duplex at 6009 La Vista has a completely fabulous location if you want to be close to pretty much everything. Seriously, this spacious two-story unit with a two-car garage is within walking distance of fantastic restaurants and great shopping.
Tuesday Two Hundred: Montebello Park Traditional Will Make The Perfect Nest For a Pair of Lovebirds!
Love is in the air! What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than christening your first home with your mate! This house, 4241 Somerville Avenue, is a cute, cozy traditional that will be perfect for a pair of lovebirds to make their nest!
I love brand new rentals! They have that new-car-like smell to them and they feel like a good pair of shoes that no one else has tried on. Being the first-ever tenant in a new development is pretty great, and if you want to move into a great, brand new townhome, this week’s featured lease is for you.
Friday Four Hundred: Hold Onto Your Hat, Because This Gorgeous M Streets Cottage Will Blow You Away!
Oh my gawd I LOVE this house! I’ve seen a lot of renovation jobs — some turning out bland, some just plain butt ugly — and when you see a complete, to-the-studs renovation go right it’s like nirvana. Your toes get all tingly and your check-writing finger gets itchy and, well, you just have to have it!
Do not let this stunning home’s address fool you: 9226 Greenville. Though it faces the northernmost stretches of Greenville Avenue, it is located in a beautiful, quiet residential crook of Lake Highlands in area loaded with large luxury homes. Yes, Lake Highlands: Richardson schools. It overlooks a tranquil, treed creek with one of the biggest entertaining decks in the city. And it has been meticulously securitized by the best in town: 16 high security video cameras protect this property — which is more than you find in some mansions on Strait Lane! That plus a state-of-the-art alarm system, and tall stone walls that block out both noise and the bad boys.
Friday Five Hundred: Just Give Me a Glass of Iced Tea, Because This Front Porch is Where I’m Staying
Who doesn’t love a good front porch? They’re gaining in popularity — builders such as JLD Custom Homes make beautiful ones — which is great because big front porches are excellent neighborhood gathering spaces.
Everything about this home screams skinny jeans and ironic glasses. From the modern furniture straight from West Elm and the Anthropologie accessories to the hilarious print in the water closet, this two-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath cottage is Generation Y heaven. Continue reading
I can’t believe it, but my son Cooper will be turning one in August. My husband and I were talking about how much our lives have changed in less than one year.
“Pretty soon we’re going to need more room,” I said to him somewhat offhandedly. Of course, he stopped dead in his tracks. His face turned white as a sheet.
“You’re not … pregnant again, right?” he stammered.
I got such a giggle over that! No, we’re not pregnant again, but it got me thinking — we love our home in Casa View Haven, and we’ve put a lot of work into it, but if we were to move to a bigger house, where would we want to go? Continue reading
