North Davilla Drive

Midway Hollow is a big star among affordable Dallas neighborhoods. Lots of houses there, like our Thursday Three Hundred, have been totally remodeled to look fresh and modern, but still ring in under $400K.

Located at 3770 Dunhaven Rd. near Walnut Hill and Marsh Lanes in the North Davilla Drive neighborhood, this home is beautifully done with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,413 square feet on one story, built in 1951. It has hardwood floors and fresh paint throughout, with a new kitchen and master bathroom, among other areas.  There’s a partially open floorplan, and a great backyard. Let’s take a look!

9927 Lenel Place car port

I think we can all agree that not every remodeled midcentury home is a success. For certain, some well-intentioned homeowners and even some rather haphazard flippers have ruined some of the fabulous midcentury moderns and post-war traditionals. This Midway Hollow home, however, was brought up to date in a way that is sensitive to the architecture and style of the home.

And in a neighborhood as hot as Midway Hollow, I totally understand that 9927 Lenel Place, marketed by Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty agent Lou Alpert, probably won’t stick around on the market for much longer, even though it’s only two days on MLS!

3239 Whirlaway

Gabe Rounds was living next door when 3239 Whirlaway went on the market. He did a few remodeling projects in North Oak Cliff and was ready for another chance to put his talents to the test.

And while Northwest Dallas is growing in popularity with flippers and remodelers, not every home turns out right. Not every remodeler has the vision to realize a home’s potential.

But that might be Rounds’ gift, as his work on this stunning Chapel Downs home is a revelation. We’re thrilled to highlight this listing from David Griffin & Company Realtor Diane Sherman and her son Vinnie Sherman as our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans. With its outstanding curb appeal and stylish interiors, we’re certain this home won’t be on the market long. Before you visit it during the open house this Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m., be sure to call Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans to get pre-approved so you can sail through closing.

Jump to see inside this fresh-faced remodeled ranch!

spec house

I’ve got a total scoop for you today, a gorgeous transitional spec house in Midway Hills that just listed. This property is swoon-worthy, with rich, open spaces, high-end amenities, and beautiful conveniences. This is a Preston Hollow-esque home, but with a lot smaller price tag.

Located at 4046 Northview Ln., it’s the work of CandysDirt.com Approved Builder Michael Turner, owner of Classic Urban Homes. Turner builds in great Dallas neighborhoods, and he currently has eight luxury homes in various stages of construction. His creations are in demand, to say the least, and it’s easy to see why.

This home has five bedrooms, six bathrooms, three living areas, a three-car garage, and 5,638 square feet on two stories. It sits on just over a third of an acre near Northaven and Midway roads. It has a smooth, clean, uncluttered design with big windows, rich hardwoods, and high-end extras that make for exceptional living.

“I like the neighborhood because you can get the same amenities as the Preston Hollow area, but this house is about $500,000 less expensive that what you would pay there [because of the lot prices],” Turner said. “It’s still a Preston Hollow-style house and finish-out with all the bells and whistles.”

6452 Bordeaux a

With our North Texas market moving at its current pace, finding a home for under $200K can be like looking for a needle in a haystack.

But they do exist! Today, we’ve found a super cute place in the Bordeaux Village Condos near West Mockingbird Lane and Inwood Road that’s got tons of personality, superb location, and a friendly price tag. This area is just south of tony neighborhoods Bluffview and Greenway Park, close to the Park Cities and Medical District, and a block and a half west of the Dallas North Tollway.

The condo at 6452 Bordeaux Ave. Unit H was built in 1951 and the personality from that era shines through. But they’ve also done renovations to make it appealing to a modern buyer, like updating the kitchen.

This condo has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,029 square feet on two stories.

3446 Saint Cloud a

Northwest Dallas is one of the hottest areas in Dallas when it comes to home renovations and flips. These residential properties, largely built in the 1950s and 60s, offer nice-sized footprints for stylish, refreshed digs, and lots of folks are taking advantage with engaging results.

Our Thursday Three Hundred, located at 3446 Saint Cloud Cir. near Forest and Marsh lanes, offers a beautiful combination of up-to-date character and old-fashioned charm. Sitting on over a third of an acre on a cul-de-sac, this 1959 ranch has four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bathroom, and 2,491 square feet on one story.

It has been tastefully—and thoroughly—renovated, resulting in a cohesive, curated look. The rooms flow easily from one space to the next, and the clean lines and natural light make the home feel spacious.

There’s an open house this Sunday from 1-3 p.m. Let’s take a peek before then.

3106 Silverton d

Our Thursday Three Hundred takes us to the heart of Northwest Dallas, where we’ve found a renovated ranch that’s contemporary, stylish, and spacious.

The home at 3106 Silverton Dr., near Royal Lane and Webb Chapel Road, benefitted from a big overhaul and now this 1957 beauty stands out. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,961 square feet.

Every corner of this Northwest Dallas ranch was touched, from the exterior’s new wood accent hardscaping and landscaping, to lots of fresh amenities inside. Located in the Royal Haven neighborhood, this home offers a lot for well under $400K, from fenced RV/boat parking and covered patios, to a built-in wine refrigerator and dry bar. This is a large corner lot in an up-and-coming neighborhood, so let’s take a look before someone swoops in and buys this beauty.

Dallas Modern Mile Home Tour | CandysDirt.com

Home tour season is upon us, and we couldn’t be happier. We hope you enjoyed yesterday’s sneak peek from the Dallas Modern Mile Home Tour. Today, we’re bringing you a second one.

“The Y House” at 10209 Rosser Rd. in Northwest Dallas has an unusual shape—thus its nickname. Designed and built by architect Gordon Nichols in 1954, the house is marvelously midcentury, with a low-slung roof, vaulted ceilings with light coves that repeat in a specific 5/5 module, and an inner courtyard and back garden. Visitors on Saturday’s Dallas Modern Mile Home Tour will appreciate the pops of retro color, and organic expansion, which brought the home to 2,435 square feet, but retained the integrity of the original design and overall style.

We sat down with owner Brandon Emanuel to talk about the home’s distinguishing characteristics, renovations, design schemes, and his family’s plans for the home’s future.
