Urban Reseve 14 Vanguard Way

Urban Reserve is where the cool kids live — there’s no doubt about it. You have to have a certain aesthetic and sensibility to appreciate what this master-planned, sustainable, modern oasis is all about. It’s not surprising that in a neighborhood of 50 homes spread over 13 acres you’ll find seven architects, artists, and interior designers — you know, the cool kids.

Now you can join them (and be cool, too) because 14 Vanguard Way, our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week, has just been listed by Joseph Garcia of Gharbieh + Associates for $904,900. Architect Brent Brown designed the 3,008-square-foot, three-bedroom, three-bathroom home. Brown is a director with BC Workshop and the founding director of the city of Dallas’ CityDesign Studio. And he’s won more awards than we have room to write about.

Tokalon

I’ve driven, walked, biked, and strolled past this house on one of the prettiest streets in Dallas — Tokalon Drive — and I’ve always wondered how the sharp angles and gridded windows conveyed to the interiors. The answer: AMAZINGLY. Fans of contemporary architecture will love this classic 1980s home that takes full advantage of the gorgeous views from its hilltop perch near White Rock Lake.

If Lakewood living has always been on your bucket list, don’t let this stellar opportunity pass you by. Call Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans today to make sure that you breeze through your buying experience from bid to close. It takes experience and know-how to make a luxury purchase seamless, and Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans has just that.

10300 Strait Lane ext

Comes word that the tear down of the Bud Oglesby home at 10300 Strait came sooner rather than later.

In fact, she is gone, her body laid to a fitful rest somewhere in Lewisville …

Few homes truly rock the twilight photo shoot. Sometimes it looks like you’re hiding something, like imperfect masonry or ugly landscaping. And then there are grand homes and estates for which it seems that twilight photoshoots were truly made. This listing, from Jarrad Barnes of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Gullotto-Barnes group, is absolutely stunning in a very sublime, almost ethereal way. It’s like a monolith, and when lit at night, it is spectacular, not unlike a sculpture. Now that’s architecture!

A home like this is truly a high-caliber home, and such a listing deserves an equally high-caliber mortgage professional to guide you through the process.

24 Vanguard Front

We are just loving how hot Urban Reserve is right now. I mean, this development, the brainchild of the wonderful Diane Cheatham, is as spectacular as you’d expect, with incredible architect-driven modern homes side by side along a placid creek, right inside Northeast Dallas. The homes inside Urban Reserve are getting a lot of attention, and this one at 24 Vanguard Way just went under contract!

This home, listed with Virginia Cook Realtor Ed Murchison, is priced at $748,520 and has all the makings of a High Caliber Home. For a home like this, you want a lender who is going to make sure that you get the right loan. Don’t waste any time and make sure that you’re pre-approved with Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans, so the modern home of your dreams isn’t under contract before you can put in an offer!

4135 Lively Front

There are not enough exclamation points in the world for this home. Seriously, this is one of those listings where I am just gushing all over the place. I spotted it on a random Realtor’s Facebook page, and I knew that I had to feature this listing. At first glance, I was overwhelmed by the photos, which really pick out all of the fantastic details and upgrades that these sellers have put in. I was like this:

I think I’ve heard just about everything there is to hear about PV14, the modern home constructed of 14 shipping containers located on Peavy Road in Old Lake Highlands. The home, which has outstanding panoramic views of White Rock Lake and downtown Dallas, including Boy Scout Hill, has been praised and has raised several eyebrows as neighbors watched the home go vertical.

It’s been called both trendy and tremendous, but while there was some negative feedback from some of the homeowners, many of whom felt the structure was too tall for a neighborhood full of single-story 1950s traditionals, after the AIA Dallas Tour of Homes the collective gasp of excitement over the home was well heard.

10741 Eden Roc Back

We know that there are a ton of midcentury modern homes in Sylvania Dells, an area of Lake Highlands where architecture is eye candy. We featured a unique listing from Ed Murchison just a short jog from today’s High-Caliber Home of the Week, and it was a midcentury modern with colored paneling and a unique floor plan, too.

However, 10741 Eden Roc surpasses all expectations with more that 4,000 square feet of wide open space on an acre lot. This home has been painstakingly preserved, with gorgeous expansive floors and the coolest open concept. You know, Realtors often put the words “MUST SEE!” in a listing description, and I usually just glaze over it. For this home, though, with its incredible windows, amazing back deck, and cool master suite, I really, REALLY want to see it!

All of these things — top-of-the-line design, amazing architecture, and perfectly preserved interiors — make this a high-caliber home. A home like this deserves a lender that’s going to look out for you and make sure that your dream becomes a reality. That’s what Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans does with her clients. She’s a mortgage professional that takes the time to make sure that there are no financing hiccups at closing. Find out what Lisa Peters can do for you today.
