1001 Turner Ave Front

Though it sat unchanged and rather unremarkable for years, 1001 Turner Avenue never lost its vintage charm. It just needed a skilled person with a vision to bring it back to its splendor. Built in 1925, this two-story traditional in the sought-after Kessler Highlands neighborhood has so much personality and character. Now it really shines, thanks to a buyer with great sense and vision.

The transformation from hodge-podge to sleek and beautiful has earned it the title of High Caliber Home of the Week, that’s for sure. If you have your heart set on this home, I sadly report that it’s already under contract, though it wouldn’t hurt if you went ahead and called Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans to get pre-approved and ready to put in your highest and best offer should the deal fall through.

Jump to see what this home looked like before its stylish transformation!

1618-Eastus-Front

“If they could pick this house up and move it to a bigger lot, they would,” says 1618 Eastus Drive listing agent Courtney Tauriac. It was a passion project for them, and everything within this midcentury ranch was hand picked.

So it’s with a tinge of sadness and a whole lot of admiration that we name this 1952-built stunner in East Kessler our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. Thanks to their hard work, we’re pretty sure these sellers will get an offer on this beautiful North Oak Cliff home in a jiffy, so if it’s speaking to you, better call Lisa Peters today to get pre-approved and ready to bid!

6615 Bandera 1A Front

The Drexel Park Hollow condominiums is in a fantastic location. It’s ridiculously close to both the Tollway and Northwest Highway, but without all of the terrible congestion at preston Road. The building itself is a classic layout that allows for courtyard views and a visual buffer from the street, as well as quiet public spaces.

And inside the luxurious building you’ll find some fab amenities and this stellar listing from David Griffin & Company Realtor Micky Carr. Unit 1A at 6615 Bandera is our High Caliber Home of the Week Sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.

“This area is so desireable,” Carr said. “Unlike some of our city’s high-rises and mid-rises, this building is located within a residential neighborhood, perfect for an evening walk.”

130 N. Edgefield Front

The old house life is one coveted and enjoyed by legions of history buffs and appreciators of fine craftsmanship. To love an old home is to accept one of the most fundamental things about them — they’re old, and they’ll need fixing.

But in the hands of a true lover of aged architecture, an old house turns into a breathing, living structure full of history and life. That’s what we love about a brand new listing from David Griffin & Company Realtors agent Diane Sherman in historic Winnetka Heights. It was lovingly restored by its more recent owners, including sellers Barry Binder and Tracie Dockwell. The before-and-after shots will floor you!
