Highland Park Tudor 4312 Arcady Ave 1

“They don’t make them like this anymore,” Teffy Jacobs said.

Jacobs is Vice President of Doris Jacobs Real Estate with Allie Beth Allman, and she’s right.

Midway Hollow Modern
Our Saturday Seven Hundred, at 3938 Lively Ln., is a Midway Hollow Modern that is a prime example of why young families are not only flocking into this hot neighborhood, they’re staying.

If builders aren’t flipping, they’re creating spec homes like this cool contemporary built by Brad Thurman of Thurman Real Estate Partners. Thurman finished the 2,674-square-foot home in early 2015. With three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a powder bath, it’s what young families want today. Of course, it helps when you have a seller with great taste and an excellent designer like Gary Owens on board. Owens not only helped with the interiors, but he’s also responsible for the lovely landscape design.

Dave Perry-Miller agent Michelle McElreath listed this house for $739,000 a few days ago.

“It went under contract to the first person that saw it,” McElreath said. “Every single person that has looked at it has wanted to buy it. We are still showing the house, and people are asking about back up offers. What is so perfect about the house is — it’s just easy. You walk in and even before it was impeccably decorated you think, oh yeah this works. Whether you entertain four or 40, it works. It’s flooded with light but still private. It’s a great house in a great neighborhood.”

Kessler Park Estate
Privacy and space are hot commodities today. It’s hard to find one, much less both, but we have. Our Inwood House of the Week, at 1402 Yakimo Dr., is a Kessler Park Estate in Oak Cliff, set in almost an acre of woods. It’s hard to believe a property like this still exists only minutes from downtown Dallas.

Chris Brumley of Brumley Gardens worked with Bickers on the landscaping and seasonal planting in the front of the house.
