“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!

It may not catch your eye immediately, but there’s just something about this adorable traditional cottage in Stevens Park Estates. The tidy front lawn, freshly planted flower beds, and colorful dark teal blue front door — it’s an absolute classic.

It just hit the market today, as listing agent Sam Saladino with David Griffin & Company tells me. We’re just pleased as punch to feature it on CandysDirt.com as our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.

And if you think the exterior of this classic cottage is on point, just wait until you see the bevy of built-ins — a true neat freak’s dream come true — throughout.

When architect and city councilman Vernon Smith built this Oak Cliff home in 1949, much of the features were revolutionary for the time. A double carport worked well for the growing number of two-car households. The windows and lines were clean and angular. The floorplan allowed for movement throughout the space with relative ease.

And that design, while revolutionary 67 years ago, is perfect for today’s family. Thanks to sellers David and Becca Holt, both of whom are interior designers, the functional and aesthetically pleasing design of this home is updated with carefully chosen materials that stay true to its history while looking to the future.

We’re thrilled to feature this listing from David Griffin Realtor Crystal Gonzalez as our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. If you find yourself smitten with this midcentury modern home in North Oak Cliff, call Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans today to sail through your transaction from bid to closing.
