This place is just too stinking adorable to pass up! Located in McKinney’s W. A. Rhea subdivision, 519 W. Hunt St. was built in 1901 and has so much of that turn-of-the-century beauty intact.
I read about the brand new, two-way buffered bike lanes that were installed on Jefferson Boulevard today and I thought, “As a way to honor this long sought-after accomplishment, we should feature an Oak Cliff home for our Tuesday Two Hundred.” I started rummaging through MLS and my jaw dropped. Folks, you will not believe what I found.
Some homes are beautiful, and some homes are charming. The homes that are my favorites, though, are the cute ones. They are the ones that somehow manage to be both beautiful and charming at the same time. They have little details that make you gasp in delight. They are they homes you picture your furniture in.
Cameron Holland Helps Clients Flip Homes ‘With Training Wheels,’ And This Tudor on Monticello is a Prime Example
Cameron Holland, Broker at Howell Holland Real Estate, is a young gun at just 29 years old. And yet, he’s got an eye for real estate and he knows what sells.

Thursday Three Hundred: The Dream of The 1880s is Alive in McKinney, And This Restored Farmhouse is Proof
You’ll have to forgive me for the lame Portlandia reference. I love old homes. They remind me of a time when things were crafted by artisans, built by hand and appreciated. They remind me that, while it feels like we’ve reinvented construction and made old new again, there was nothing really wrong with “old” in the first place.

Thursday Three Hundred: In With The Old? That’s Right. Restored Junius Heights Charmer Needs a New Family For The New Year
Of the neighborhoods I’ve househunted in and lived in, Junius Heights is my favorite. We didn’t end up buying in this area as it was out of our price range, but my husband and I rented our first home together there.
All I can really say is that the current owner of 114 N. Windomere has some very diverse tastes. You can’t tell from the curb, but woo wee! This homeowner is not afraid of color!
Thursday Three Hundred: Plenty of Space to Shoot 3-Pointers in This Remodeled Winnetka Heights Craftsman
This house, if it could say one word and one word only, it would be “AHHHH-DORABLE.” Just like that. In fact, it would be shouting it, so when you heard it from around the block, you would come jogging through Winnetka Heights until you found 314 N. Clinton, a butter yellow Craftsman just west of Tyler Street. Continue reading
Gray is the hottest neutral right now, and I am loving how it’s just popping up everywhere and in every conceivable shade. All 50 of them.
Trashy adult novel puns aside, this gorgeous Junius Heights Arts and Crafts home is the perfect example of how neutral doesn’t mean boring. With all of the wonderful cool slate, marble, and pearl grays, all of the details stand out. Continue reading
