6861 Lakewood Boulevard

Although this is the preferred entrance for family use, it’s actually the service entrance of the home.

The Dines and Kraft Tudor at 6861 Lakewood Boulevard is, without a doubt, one of the most beloved homes in Lakewood — and it’s finally for sale again. It was just listed by Annamari Lannon of Allie Beth Allman for $1.249 million, and that is a great price for a home of this caliber.

Built in 1928, the three-story, 4,160-square-foot home is often referred to by neighbors as “The Ohio House.” Take a look at the first photo, closely. Look to the left, peeking through the leaves of the tree. Let us know in our comments section if you figure out why it’s been given that name! (more…)

7022 Pasadena A

When Linda and Stephan Martiniere relocated to Dallas from Chicago in 2009, they were looking for something magical in a Texas home. Deep in the heart of Lakewood on a street with rolling hills and mature trees, these two artists found what they were looking for at 7022 Pasadena Ave.

The 4-4 had gorgeous architectural detail throughout its 4,074 square feet, but the couple wanted to add their own touch to the space. Stephan immigrated to the U.S. from France some 30 years ago and the Martinieres have spent much time in that country, where they admired the feel of the old houses.

“When we saw this house, which was spectacular, we knew it was the home we were searching for—it’s not like any other part of Dallas,” Linda said. “We adored the incredible detail and workmanship of the house, the creative use of space, and we knew it would feed us creatively, and yet provide us with a great deal of peace and privacy.”

7022 Pasadena BLinda is the daughter of an interior designer and has renovated four other homes, so it was clear to her what the house could become with a redesign in a French farmhouse style. Part of that meant editing design choices made by a previous owner. For example, some rooms in the house were quite unfinished, while others had every detail imaginable, down to hand-carved door handles.

“The challenge was to make a more functional space, and yet also to create a harmonious statement with the home,” she said. “My vision was to let this home unfold itself and lead you seamlessly from room to room, with surprises at every turn, but is never jarring. I wanted to take the home to a place of slightly understated, old-world elegance, an homage to the stunning architectural detail of the existing home.”
