You might expect to pay a cover fee to attend an open house at a property of this caliber. The art alone is worthy of exhibit. And together with  perfectly selected fixtures and finishes, 1717 Arts Plaza, unit 2208 strikes a masterful balance between the warmth of home and the aloofness of a gallery. The combination is purposeful and stunning.

“It’s very livable, though still museum-like,” said Realtor David Griffin. “It’s just very thoughtfully designed.”

With museum-smooth walls and impressive 11-foot ceilings, the design intent of this space is clear: art lives here. “The owner of this unit is an art collector,” said Griffin. “I think the floor plan, finish-out, and amenities of this particular home are perfect for those with artistic interests. It’s perfectly set for that purpose.”

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!

S. Edgefield HCHOTW

If you’ve been ogling over those cute tiny homes that are popping up everywhere, but you’re not sure if a life on wheels or in the boonies for you, this listing from David Griffin & Company Realtor Bart Thrasher shows that you can live itty bitty in the city.

Bart, who lives in Winnetka Heights with his wife, Karen, and son, Henry, knows a thing or two about good construction. Bart is a contractor and Karen is an incredibly talented architect, and with all that know-how between them they founded Thrasherworks, a boutique architecture and design firm based right in North Oak Cliff. And in Bart’s opinion, this property is perfect for those who believe in the gospel of minimalism and the zen of tidying up.

No wonder this unique Craftsman in Winnetka Heights is our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans. While this listing is in contingency (the buyers are waiting to sell their current home), it doesn’t hurt to be prepared should it go back on the market. Call Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans today to get your pre-approval in line so you can put your highest and best offer in on this tiny home should you get a second chance!
