We just love a great Craftsman and the Dallas neighborhoods where they reside. For our CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week column, we’ve indulged our whimsy and included three Dallas Craftsman houses for your viewing pleasure. They range in price from $499K to $1.189 million and one was actually built in 2015 as an East Dallas custom. All three are beautiful with Craftsman-like elements like wide and welcoming front porches; broad, low gabled roofs; and wide-open layout that makes the most of square footage.
