Open house: Sunday, Jan. 14, 3:30-5 p.m.
Elegant sophistication and a clean, contemporary look make 8401 Linwood Ave. a delight. This Linwood Place home in Bluffview is a gorgeous example of modern architecture with an Energy Star Certified rating. It has five bedrooms, four full bathrooms, one half bath, three living areas, and 4,100 square feet on two stories, built in 2016 (the main house is 3,633 and the casita is 467).
The open floorplan of the main house flows seamlessly from one space to the next and is kept bright with lots of natural light from walls of stacking glass doors and double-height ceilings. The super luxe kitchen is a dream with walnut high gloss lacquer cabinetry, quartz countertops, huge central island, and high-end appliances, including a gas cooktop.

UPDATED KESSLER SQUARE TUDOR WITH IMPECCABLE STYLE
Open house: Sunday, Jan. 14, 2-4 p.m.
One of North Oak Cliff’s most desirable neighborhoods is Kessler Square and we’ve found a wonderful Tudor there that’s just magical. The home at 1011 N. Winnetka Ave. was built in 1928 and retains era-appropriate craftsmanship coupled with a thoughtful restoration and expansion that is marvelous. This home has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bath, two living areas, two dining areas, and 2,470 square feet on two stories.
The floorplan offers easy flow and traditional style with spaces sun filled and warm, with ten-foot ceilings, chunky moldings, leaded glass windows, and reclaimed hardwood floors. The kitchen sets a high standard with a gorgeous Bertazzoni range, quartzite countertops, center island, bead board cabinetry, custom banquette, and wine captain. Upstairs, find lots of modern updates, like a super sweet master bath with soaker tub, an open den area with built-in desk, and full-size washer-dryer convenient to bedrooms. The backyard twinkles with string lights casting a glow on the paver patio, mature trees, privacy fence, and two-car garage.
