Friday Five Hundred: Remodeled German Contemporary on La Vista Looks Traditional on The Outside, But It’s All Modern
Happy Friday! It’s wedding season, so I know a lot of you are headed out of town. I’ll keep things short and sweet: This house is amazing, you’re going to love it, and someone is going to buy it before you can get your checkbook out.
This home is just a great combination of old-world charm and new-world conveniences in one of the most coveted and accessible historic districts in Dallas. And considering that 5101 Victor will be open on Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m., you can drop in and check it out after you’ve had brunch at the Swiss Avenue Mother’s Day Home Tour.
This little house is just right for a family. At 2722 Lawtherwood Ct., you are within walking distance of White Rock Lake and right next to a private greenbelt. This is such a great home for parents of young children, especially considering the great Dallas ISD schools in the area.
It’s been almost a year since that freak hail storm demolished roofs throughout Lakewood and East Dallas, leaving many of the slate and clay-tile roofs on Swiss Avenue in pieces.
Some homes that line Swiss have gotten new roofs only within the last few weeks. It’s incredible, to me at least, that these historic properties have sat with only a blue tarp protecting their interiors from the elements for more than nine months.
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!
That’s it, TWO tickets for anyone who can tell me in what year J.J. Long School, pictured here, was built. So much on tap in Lakewood this weekend, you cannot miss Eddie Maestri’s modern farmhouse on Coronado, a spectacular mid century-modern influenced new build on Lake Circle, or a historic Spanish-style Hutsell home right Lakewood Boulevard with an original fresco above the fireplace that was recently restored. This house was almost destroyed by a fire and essentially rebuilt, but retains many of its original features. Now here’s a street I plan to live on before I die: Bob O’ Link, just LOVE that name, and check out a charming ranch-style home on Bob O’Link. Scuttlebutt: the owner of Times Ten Cellars and Blow hair salon bought it last year from the former personal secretary and close friend of Mary Kay, who had lived there for four decades. The new owner has created a fascinating fountain of wine bottles in the garden, which is essentially an outdoor living room, as interesting as the house itself!

The 20-plus year real estate veteran has his own team, Ben Jones Real Estate Group. He is one of the most sought-after agents in the Dallas area and thought we’d find out more about him.
Everyone Loves Lakewood and Lakewood Schools: I Have Free Tickets to Lakewood’s Tour of Homes This Weekend…
Get them while they are HOT! I’ve got tickets in my hot envelope-holding hand for this weekend’s Lakewood Home Tour featuring six Lakewood homes, AND J.L. Long Middle School, the first non-residence featured on the tour since its inception. Haven’t you ever thought you might want to LIVE in a school? In London, people are living in insane asylums gone condo. Why not an elementary school? J.L. Long opened in 1933, is a historical landmark and was recently refurbished to the tune of multi-millions. The ticket will get you in Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm, or Sunday from 11 am to 5 pm.
I wanted to raise a bit of a debate with our Thursday $300K this week. First, I want to say that I love this Williams Caruth three-bedroom traditional. It’s very cute, and it has plenty of well-chosen upgrades, including an updated master bath and granite counters in the kitchen.
Lakewood is home to so many great homes by incredible architects. Street after street, block after block, you’ll see gorgeous historic houses with outstanding details. If you manage to find a home for sale designed by one of these architects and has a view of the lake, well, that’s a great stroke of luck.
