This house kills me dead! I am already fond of Russell Buchanan‘s work. He’s the award-winning architect behind the Mockingbird Lane box house we reported on last week. If you weren’t bowled right on over by that amazing home, then this one will knock your stinking socks off!
Y’all remember Rucker Hill, right? He’s the son of dynamo Nathan Grace agent Peggy Hill (no, not that Peggy Hill!) who has an eye for properties with remodeling in mind. His company, Rucker Design Build, has done some amazing work!
Midcentury Modern homes are so hot in Dallas right now that it’s hard to find one you can afford. Most are in high-profile locations, are remodeled, or have long pedigrees. But what if you could have an amazing Midcentury Modern home in a great neighborhood for $200,000?
Monday Morning Millionaire: Light And Bright Lakewood Contemporary Has Everything — Even an Indoor Hot Tub!
Let me tell you, when I look around for interesting luxury properties to feature on our Monday Morning Millionaire spot, I often get a surprise. Take this Lakewood Soft Contemporary for example. Built in 1956, it has three bedrooms, two full and two half baths, and a hot tub inside. Yeah, that hot tub is inside the house. And a steam room. Amazing.
Talk about a house that can charm the pants off of you! This gorgeous Midcentury Modern offered by Susan Griffin of Bill Griffin Real Estate Brokerage is just what the doctor ordered. Trust me, you’ll just die when you see the insides of 7306 Walling!
Tuesday Two Hundred: What A Value! This Bretton Woods 2-Story Sits On 2 Gorgeous Acres in Oak Cliff!
I heard from a member of an Oak Cliff power couple that there are no more affordable homes in the Cliff. Poppycock, I say! If you want a fixer-upper in one of the hottest areas in all of Dallas, then look no further than 2939 W. Ledbetter.
Thursday Three Hundred: Disney Streets Midcentury Has Plenty of Updates Without Sacrificing Character
Everyone is looking for the perfect Midcentury Modern these days. Lucky for them, Dallas has a fabulous collection of the much sought-after architectural style. This one, at 10815 Cinderella Lane in the Disney Streets neighborhood, is a great family home with tons of updates without losing the Mid-Mod charm!
I’ve seen a lot of midcentury modern homes that have been rather tragically updated to the point of losing all character. It’s a delicate balance, really, to make a home livable without losing the details that make it great.
When some people buy midcentury modern homes, they tend to keep all the things they love about them — the windows, the stone accents, the woodwork — and ditch everything they don’t — kitchens and bathrooms. But there are those homeowners who instead embrace the details and workmanship in these houses. They preserve pretty much everything in them, not just the things that are popular.
I’m not sure exactly what date range qualifies a property to be a “Midcentury Modern,” but we’ll let in 618 Tiffany Trail in Richardson regardless because, come on, this home is amazing!
