Share News:

pitchesAs we’ve mentioned before, every week we solicit pitches for our various featured listing posts, including our weekly roundup of open houses.

You can tag us on Instagram, or even better, you can join our Facebook group, Getting the Dirt.  It’s a great place to virtually mingle with fellow professionals, ask questions, lend a hand, and, yes, pitch stories to writers. Not a Realtor? It’s a great place to get a first glimpse at some of the most recent listings all over North Texas, too.

Take, for instance, this week’s properties featured in our Open Houses of the Week. We have four incredible properties this week — consider it our usual three and a bonus house, if you will.

Midcentury Modern in Melshire Estates

Open house: Sunday, Jan. 27, 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The timeless design and floorplan of the Midcentury Modern home will never go out of style — and this 1964 Melshire Estates home is a prime example of that.

Listed by Janelle Alcantara with Galaxy Modern and David Griffin and Company Realtors, this five-bedroom, six-and-a-half bath home at 5545 Charleston Drive has 5,230 square feet of impeccably updated and maintained living space.

“This Midcentury Modern home has been remastered for a sophisticated buyer,” she said.

And the amenities are aplenty — from two kitchens (satisfying your entertaining needs for a catering kitchen, or a need for keeping Kosher) to an air-conditioned lanai that allows you to enjoy the great outdoors even in July.

In addition, the master suite has a private living room of its own, just in case you need to emphasize the retreat part of a master retreat.

Other perks of purchasing this home include a three-car garage, a library, a gorgeous courtyard, and a great laundry space.

It’s listed for $1,725,000.

Lake Highlands Traditional On Wooded Lot

Open house: Sunday, Jan. 27, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The crew at the Dallas Native Team with Dave Perry-Miller and Associates pitched us this roomy Traditional in Lake Highlands that feels like you live in the middle of the woods, not the city.

Located at 7026 Walling Lane, the lot not only is heavily wooded, but also backs to a creek. The three-bedroom, two-bath home itself takes advantage of those views by making sure the den, dining area and kitchen overlook the wooded, park-like backyard.

A formal living and dining space lead to the den, open kitchen and out to a tree-shaded patio. The kitchen features granite counters and a tumbled marble backsplash, as well as double ovens and plenty of prep space.

There is also plenty of storage space, and even a bonus room that is versatile enough to become a man cave, office space, or even a playroom.

It’s also close to the Santa Fe bike trail, White Rock Lake, and more.

It’s listed for $430,000.

Lower Greenville Traditional In Great Feeder Pattern

Open house: Sunday, Jan. 27, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Sharon Quist pitched us this beautiful traditional near Lower Greenville with a completely renovated kitchen and plenty of room for a family – which is perfect since it sits in the Woodrow Wilson feeder pattern, and is zoned for Geneva Heights Elementary.

Located at 6030 Goodwin Ave., this custom four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home has two offices, a game room, and a pool sitting in a gorgeous backyard.

It’s built for families and entertaining, with a renovated open kitchen boasting granite counters and plenty of room for prepping and cooking. The wood floors have been refinished, and the oversized master has a large garden bath, walk-in closet, and an attached office or nursery.

It’s also an easy walk to Teitze Park, a new aquatic center, and a golf course, Quist says.

The home is listed for $799,000.

Old East Dallas Home Designed by Joshua Nimmo

Open house: Sunday, Jan. 27, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The Kucharski Group with David Griffin and Company pitched us this incredible Contemporary home in Old East Dallas, located at 2207 Ashby St.

Designed by award-winning architect Joshua Nimmo, you can tell that the 2,052 square foot home has been crafted to make the most use of space, with an open floor plan that includes two living areas, tall ceilings to increase the spacious feel, and floor to ceiling windows.

The two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath home has tons of storage to cut down on visual clutter, and high tech home automation that stays with the home.

A gorgeous kitchen boasts quartz counters and high-end stainless steel appliances – including a full-size side-by-side refrigerator-freezer. A spacious master offers a stunning en-suite with rain shower, dual bowl vanity, a private water closet, and a massive walk-in closet.

The home is listed for $545,000.
