Lakewood Heights Contemporary Craftsman 6111 Lakeshore Drive

East Dallas neighborhoods can get confusing. Consider Lakewood. You have Lakewood proper, Lakewood Hills, and Lakewood Heights. Add to that the apartment communities of Lakewood Flats and Lakewood Greens. While they may all share a first name, getting that last name wrong is like being referred to as the first husband’s wife, when husband number three is manning the backyard grill. No one wants to make that mistake. So, we’re going to clarify exactly where Lakewood Heights is located, and exactly what’s so special about this neighborhood, because our Saturday Eight Hundred is a Lakewood Heights contemporary craftsman cottage that is a brand-new David Weekley custom build at 6111 Lakeshore Drive. It not only pays homage to the character of the neighborhood, but it’s also staged to perfection — and you know how much that means to this particular CandysDirt.com staffer. (more…)

IHOTW Contemporary

Our Inwood House of the Week sponsored by Inwood National Bank at 4216 San Carlos Street is a University Park new contemporary build by the Robert Raymond Group. Listed for $2.35 million with Laura Michelle and Ryan Strieff of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, it’s a beauty inside and out. (more…)

10731 Bridge Hollow Court facadeWe love a livable home, especially a livable luxury home. So many multi-million dollar homes are filled with rooms that rarely, if ever, get used, but that’s certainly not the case with this modern Mediterranean at 10731 Bridge Hollow Court in the Creeks of Preston Hollow.

For those of you unfamiliar with that subdivision, it’s between Strait Lane and Inwood Road, just south of Royal Lane. Yep, the honeypot of CEOs, sports stars, and those with extremely discerning taste. (more…)

6924 Azalea Front Hillcrest

Homes hold so much more than rooms full of furniture. They carry with them the memories of all the families who spent days, both good and bad, sheltered inside. That’s what makes it difficult for Jon Leatherberry to sell his lovely home in Hillcrest Forest, just east of Hillcrest and north of Northwest Highway. It’s a wonderful, sprawling ranch that has been remodeled to be well-scaled for family life.

6105 Glennox Lane facade

We’re going to get picky today. Our Friday Five Hundred at 6105 Glennox Lane, is a fantastic family home and according to the Dallas Central Appraisal District, this East Lovers Lane traditional is in, well, the East Lovers Lane subdivision. So, don’t let the University Meadows street signs fool you, or the fact Ridgewood Park is only two streets away.

All any of this means is that you are set if you buy this house, because this is one of those areas that is darned hard to beat, but wait — there’s more!

6410 Woodland Dr. IHOTW
Location, location, location. There’s nothing more important when you’re looking for a home. Our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week is in a perfect location within Preston Hollow, and it’s a gorgeous homage to that 19th century classic European style we all love.

6410 Woodland Drive Front Door

This magnificent two-story, 6,360-square-foot luxury home at 6410 Woodland Drive, is located right between two of the best shopping areas in town: NorthPark Center and Preston Center. It’s close to two excellent private schools: St. Marks School of Texas and Ursuline Academy. And it’s a hop skip and a jump to the Dallas North Tollway. The lovely Preston Hollow Park is just down the street. See, it really is in a perfect location.

We can’t think of a better way to kick off the year than with this drop-dead-gorgeous Highland Park modern French chateau at 4441 S. Versailles Avenue. Joan Eleazer with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International has recently listed the luxurious mansion for $8.495 million.

And we do mean luxurious. Built as a spec home in 2008, it combined the talents of builder Christine Goff, architect Will Snyder, and interior designer Ann Schooler, to create a flawless three-story, 11,698-square-foot home that has everything you could possibly imagine — and then some. Now if that is not enough pedigree let’s add another ingredient into the mix — sellers with extraordinary taste.
