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.
Thursday Three Hundred: Updates Make a Difference, And This Cute Craftsman Will Be Worth The Investment!
While this house isn’t technically $300,000, it will be worth at least that much when you renovate the kitchen. Located in the Belmont Addition, this cute Craftsman at 5930 Richmond Avenue is listed by Dallas City Center at $290,000.
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!
Hollywood-Santa Monica is definitely in my top-10 Dallas neighborhoods list! This East Dallas hideaway is littered with adorable homes on picturesque streets with great neighbors. Here’s a great opportunity to own a cute little Tudor with an outstanding backyard for just $262,500.
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.
Seriously, 6623 Winton has so much character and really, tons of DRAMA! This home has been completely renovated from top to bottom and even inside out (check out that stone pathway!) and feels thoroughly modern. You get Lakewood schools (Dallas ISD) and 2,456 square feet for just $574,900. Continue reading
Thursday Three Hundred: Caruth Terrace 1955 Time Warp For Sale, And You Can Tour The Ranch on Sunday
Sometimes you see traces of what an older home used to look like through the slick veneer of fresh paint and new flooring. Perhaps the cabinets in the kitchen get a refacing and the paneling in a bedroom is stripped and recoated, but under decades of haphazard updating is a mystery.
Just staring at the blank walls, the clean floors, and the uncluttered countertops at 7023 Casa Loma is soothing. I love imagining how my things would look in a home, freshly unpacked and organized. Continue reading
Happy first day of school, folks! I know you’re excited to send your boys and girls off to class, so I’ll give you something to read while you’re anxiously waiting to get out of the carpool lane. Continue reading
Tuesday Two Hundred: Back to School on The Brain? University Terrace 3 Bedroom is Ready For a Young Family
Tax-free weekend has come and gone, and the new school year looms like the dark clouds above us. Well, at least that’s the case if you’re young enough to be heading back to school. I’m sure there are several mothers and fathers and caregivers out there that are intensely delighted about the impending school year.
Perhaps, though, there’s a family out there that is craving more space, whose young tribe needs a home with room to stretch and play in a great Dallas ISD attendence zone, to boot. For those kind of needs, I think University Terrace is a perfect neighborhood. This quiet enclave of ranch homes sandwiched by Northwest Highway and DART’s Blue Line tracks is full of great properties that have been meticulously updated. Continue reading
