Share News:

We love bringing you an insider look at hot North Texas properties with our CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week column. Every Thursday, we pick three fabulous open houses in Dallas (and the ‘burbs from time to time) you shouldn’t miss.

This week, our houses range in price from $355,000 to $1,889,000. You’ll find a range of beauties, from the Forest Place transitional house pictured above to an awesome Claremont renovation. 



Open house: Sunday, April 15, 2-4 p.m. 

Topping our Dallas open house roundup is the lovely Forest Place transitional home at 11705 Parwen Dr. This home has five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, one half bath, three living areas, two dining areas, study, and 4,562 square feet on one story, built in 1983. It just underwent a seven-month transformation and wow, it shows! The curb appeal alone should sell this house, and that’s not even considering the spectacular interior.  

The home has three fireplaces, one of which is in the striking study with its charcoal-painted built-ins, pictured at the top of this post. The kitchen offers high-end appliances (Sub-Zero, Aga, Bosch, and Hoshizaki), a 10-foot island with contemporary pendant lights, white custom cabinets, walk-in pantry, and gorgeous herringbone backsplash. The house also features a wet bar, European oak floors, a circle drive, outdoor grill, Andersen windows and doors, mosquito mist system, and landscape lighting. 

This home was listed April 6 by Micky N. Carr with David Griffin & Company for $1,889,000.



Open house: Sunday, April 15, 1-3 p.m. 

If you love the look of a Craftsman but want a newer house, then cast your gaze toward the Ridgewood Park house at 6700 Fisher Rd., built in 2005. This home has three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bath, three living areas, two dining areas, and 3,035 square feet on two stories and it looks like the real deal from the outside.

Inside, you’ll find lovely style and amenities, including gracious formals, crown molding, hardwood floors, and plenty of natural light. The kitchen offers a center island, granite countertops, white cabinets, and stainless steel appliances and opens to bright breakfast area and big family room with a fireplace and built-ins. Nearby, a wall of French doors overlooks the flagstone patio with its gas firepit, play area, and rolling driveway gate. The downstairs master suite is good-sized with a walk-in closet and ensuite bath with dual vanities, jetted tub, and separate shower. The upstairs area includes two additional bedrooms and an oversized game room. In back, an open patio, privacy fence, and plenty of grassy green space. 

This home was listed Jan. 4 by Richard Graziano with Allie Beth Allman and Associates for $649K, reduced to $619,000.



Open house: Sunday, April 15, 1-3 p.m. 

We love the Claremont house at 8521 Bretshire Dr. with its professional renovations and sleek look. They’ve introduced a modern look and a sleek aesthetic to a house built in 1960 with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, and 1,719 square feet on one story. 

The location is prime, just a few blocks east of the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens as well as White Rock Lake. Inside, the owners have installed solid oak hardwoods on site through the living and dining rooms, as well as hallways. The kitchen offers stainless steel appliances, solid granite counters, custom kitchen cabinets to the ceiling, an island with breakfast bar, and a workstation with sink. This space is open to family room where French doors open to the patio and backyard, which has a brick fireplace. The bathrooms are renovated with quartz-topped vanities and porcelain sinks. In back, the storage shed has electricity and there’s a nice patio for relaxing. 

This home was listed April 6 by Edwina Dye with Ebby Halliday Realtors for $355,000.
