I pass by this gorgeous, gigantic, classic Tudor at 622 Newell Avenue almost every evening as I walk the dogs. Two years ago I did a staging consultation with the sellers and Cassie Evans wrote about it for the blog, so I was surprised to see it back on the market this week.

You see, people tend to never leave Hollywood Heights. They move, but they move within the neighborhood. For example, both of the neighbors across the street from me have moved to larger homes in the neighborhood. And both of their homes sold within 30 days. A house on Monte Vista listed Saturday and went to contract Monday. This is reflective of what’s happening in general with real estate in our market, but Hollywood Heights, specifically, is hotter than ever. (more…)

Monday Morning Millionaire

When we imagine the perfect country home outside a scenic little European village, this eclectic country French estate is exactly what comes to mind. Fortunately, you won’t need a passport to enjoy 6803 Lakewood Boulevard. You need to give David Bush with David Bush Real Estate a call and book an appointment.

Bush has this iconic house, named one of D Magazine‘s “Ten Most Beautiful Homes in Dallas” in 2008, listed for $2.3 million. This lovely, picturesque property has not been on the market for 40 years. (more…)

An “O” House is a home so fabulous you have to drop whatever you are doing (yeah, even that) or holding, including your nail file, to look!

typing the name “Angie Barrett” takes me back about ten or so years, to when I had fewer wrinkles, smaller gluts, and Skip Hollandsworth wrote his famous “Angie Barrett Does Not Use Butt Cream” chef d’oeuvre for Texas Monthly.

(If it works, then I surely need it.)

Remember Angie Barrett? Click here if you need a refresher course or are so new to Dallas that you’ve never heard of her. Strong woman, smart woman, a real Dallas survivor.

The story of Angie Barrett’s ascension to the top of Dallas’ social heap is a story so unusual, and at times so utterly comical, that many people who have heard it told around the tables at the city’s best restaurants still have trouble believing it is true. Exactly twenty years ago, Angie was not a famous socialite. She was not even remotely on her way up the social ladder. Her name was then Angie King, and she was on her way to the state penitentiary, charged with stealing more than $500,000 worth of designer clothes from the downtown Neiman Marcus.

Yeah, but she served her time, got out of the pen, and worked her butt off, cream or no cream.

Tremont IHOTW

Nestled into a grove of mature trees on a double lot in the Parks Estates section of East Dallas lies a stunning Tudor treasure at 6347 Tremont Street. Built in 1927 by Dines & Kraft, it overlooks the Lakewood Country Club and is absolute perfection. David Bush has the two-story, four-bedroom, three-full-and-one-half-bath Tudor listed for $1.65 million.

“One of the great things about this home is that it’s a mid ‘20s Tudor with all the original architecture, and a downstairs master,” Bush said. “That’s almost impossible to find.”

The house underwent two remodels over the years. The transition between the original home and additions are seamless.

Museum Tower (3)

Word just in that the ink is dry on yet another contract pushing Museum Tower’s sales up over the 60% point, as I predicted it would soon be back in May, when we did our PartyLine show there.

“With homes closed and in escrow, Museum Tower is over 60% sold on both sale-able square foot basis and unit basis,” says Steve Sandborg, Managing Director, Sales & Operations.

Meanwhile, the Dow is coming back up as we realize that Brexit isn’t going to be so painful, not to us at least. Shall we take a wager on when MT hits 70% in sales? I’m gonna say around September 30….

Museum Tower Party Line Real Estate at the Penthouse!

As we told you a few weeks ago, Museum Tower has now sold more than HALF of the luxury high end condo units available, and by the time you read this the number could be 55 percent or even 60. The sales team has pushed, but most buyers are just in love with the building so much that they want even bigger homes, or they want friends to buy next door. Buyers have included VIPs to multiple home owners to  sprinkling of Millennials who think Museum Tower is the best possible place to live not just in Dallas, but anywhere.

And of course, the 10,000-square-foot penthouse is available on the tip top floor marketed for about $21 million. Pricey, yes, but you have a raw shell to do whatever you want in, including rooftop space for a patio, pool, even a heli-pad. The possibilities are endless.

Here’s your chance to take a look at the Museum Tower penthouse, with our latest Party Line Real Estate show. This time, we talked not just to the agents and buyers, but press — Jeff Crilley came — and urban living experts like Kourtny Garrett, President of Downtown Dallas Inc., who tells us about the growing urban culture in Dallas — cycling, trails, parks, downtown recreation and even kids:

bryan street loftGet ready to be wooed by our Thursday Three Hundred.

The loft-condo at 3030 Bryan St. Ste 207, near N. Haskell Avenue and Live Oak Street, shows spectacularly, with 11-foot ceilings, stained and polished concrete floors, an open floorplan, and access to a 2,200-square-foot rooftop deck with breathtaking downtown views.

It’s a 2-1 with an additional half bath and 1,512 square feet, built in 2005, a study in New Modern craftsmanship. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow sunlight to flood the space, which feels considerably larger than its measured square footage.

It was listed Tuesday by Matthew Edwards with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate for $399,000. Monthly HOA dues are $412. There is an open house Sunday from 2-4 p.m.

Architecture on Tap

The Dallas chapter of the American Institute of Architects sponsors a lively series, Architecture on Tap, which is having its final event this week.

How big is your digital footprint?” will explore four perspectives on the use of technology and social media within the practice of architecture.

The three panelists will be Bob Borson, AIA, of Malone Maxwell Borson ArchitectsRick del Monte, FAIA, of Beck Group; and Eddie Fortuna, AIA, of Omniplan.

Discussion topics include:

  • What effect does the use of social media have on the studio environment?
  • How has the increased ease to connect with content from across the world affect the way we view the built environment?
  • ​At what point is our use of digital interaction within the work place too much?
