Every week, we’re featuring five fantastic open houses in Dallas (and suburbs from time to time) here at CandysDirt.
This week, we’ve found an exceptional group of homes on the market now. They range in price from $365,000 to $760,000. You’ll find everything from one of the best Tudor renovations we’ve seen in Hollywood/Santa Monica, to a three-story townhome with views of downtown Dallas from its rooftop deck. Let us know what you think of our choices, and if you know of any we should feature next week!
COLORFUL URBAN RANCH IN NORTHWEST DALLAS WITH ON-TREND RENOVATION
Open house: Saturday, Feb. 20, 2-4 p.m.
The home at 4231 Merrell Rd. in Northwest Dallas is total eye candy. Built in 1952, it’s now one of the most stylish and memorable properties in the area. It’s a 2-2 with 1,571 square feet, located near Midway Road and Royal Lane.
Nothing about this ranch is status quo, from the saturated blue-and-orange exterior to the ultra chic metal fireplace in the living room (and look at that awesome ceiling!). The colorful style carries throughout the house, with an orange oven in the kitchen and beautiful blue tiles in the bathrooms. All impressive. It was listed yesterday by Clay Stapp with Clay Stapp + Co. for $699,000.
HOLLYWOOD/SANTA MONICA TUDOR WITH STAINED GLASS, TASTEFUL UPDATES
Open house: Saturday, Feb. 20, 1-4 p.m.
Hollywood/Santa Monica in East Dallas is one of hottest neighborhoods in all of Dallas. The home at 7007 Lindsley Ave. is one example of why—this area is full of lovely Tudors like this one (although this is one of the best renovations we’ve seen).
This is a 2-1 with 1,169 square feet, built in 1926, near Garland Road and La Vista Drive. Look at that curb appeal and those stunning stained glass windows! The kitchen is updated with a large gas cooktop, cabinets galore, and granite countertops. Original arched doorways and an original fireplace add to the vintage charm, and there’s room for expansion of this home (plan available upon request). It was listed Feb. 6 by Shelley Nunley with RE/MAX DFW Associates for $365,000.
THREE-STORY TOWNHOME WITH VIEWS OF DOWNTOWN DALLAS FROM ROOFTOP DECK
Open house: Saturday, Feb. 20, 1-3 p.m.
Just steps from downtown Dallas, the three-story townhome at 3102 Pavonia Dr. is a light, bright, open place with lots of attractive features. It’s one of the Flora Street Townhomes in the Roseland neighborhood near Central Expressway and North Hall Street. The townhome has two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and a powder room, with 1,979 square feet, built in 2013. This is an end unit with an oversized rooftop deck offering unobstructed views of downtown and a private fenced yard in front.
Inside, the home has custom hardwood flooring, window coverings, and light fixtures. The open floorplan maximizes the space, and the kitchen is a dream, with custom cabinets, a quartz island, a contemporary backsplash, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas cooktop. The GE refrigerator and a Samsung washer-dryer convey with sale of the townhome. It was listed yesterday by Stephanie Strangis with Dave Perry-Miller InTown for $440,000, and the monthly HOA fees are $110.
UPDATED HILLCREST FOREST HOME ON ALMOST 1/2 ACRE WITH OVER 2,600 SQFT
Open house: Sunday, Feb. 21, 1-3 p.m.
The Hillcrest Forest home at 7222 Northaven Rd. is gracious and welcoming, sitting on almost half an acre near Royal Lane and Hillcrest Road. This 1959 ranch has been beautifully updated and has three bedrooms, three full bathroom, a powder room, and 2,663 square feet.
The kitchen is open to the living room and features marble and quartz countertops, a white farm sink, fresh white cabinetry, and stainless steel appliances, including double ovens and a gas cooktop. The master suite features walk-in closets, a luxe remodeled bathroom, and great natural light. French doors open to the patio and beautiful backyard with mature trees, landscaping, and lots of green space for kids and pets. It was listed Oct. 20 by Mysti Newberry Stewart with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate for $799,900, reduced last month to $760,000.
STYLISHLY UPDATED LAKE HIGHLANDS HOME WITH 2,885 SQUARE FEET, SWIMMING POOL
Open house: Sunday, Feb. 21, 2-4 p.m.
The Lake Highlands home at 9909 Faircrest Dr. is in the White Rock North neighborhood, updated for maximum appeal. It’s located near Audelia Road and Royal Lane and has four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, two half bathrooms, and 2,885 square feet, built in 1967. This home is zoned for Richardson ISD and is five minutes from White Rock Lake and 20 minutes from downtown Dallas.
The two-story house now has an open floorplan on the first floor, and the all-new kitchen offers on-trend white cabinets, light granite countertops and backsplash, a breakfast area, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas cooktop. Other updates include new low-E windows, new electrical, new plumbing, and two new HVAC units (great for keeping the second story cool in the summer). The backyard has an in-ground diving pool with slide and plenty of green grass, too. It was listed Oct. 26 Tony Nuncio with Dallas City Center Realtors for $494,900, reduced Feb. 10 to $475,000.
