Three Homes to Fall In Love With, All With Open Houses

loveAs we’ve mentioned before, every week we solicit pitches for our various featured listing posts, including our weekly roundup of open houses – and we love what you send us.

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 CandysDirt.com 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 CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week. We have three incredible properties this week — and one of them has even taken pains to help you out with your Valentine’s Day needs.

Two-Story Traditional With A Fun Valentine’s Open House

Open House: TODAY, Feb. 14, 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Our first open house happens today and is a fun way to check out this two-story Traditional located at 3824 Walden Way — because Opendoor is also offering the opportunity for folks grab some coffee and Valentine’s Day treats.

The company will have flowers, chocolates from Kate Weiser, and Houndstooth coffee on hand today, and they’ve transformed the home, they tell us, to showcase its love-nest qualities.

“Each year, 50 percent of Valentine’s presents are picked up in the last 48 hours before Valentine’s Day, so this year, Opendoor has the city of Dallas covered. On Thursday, February 14th, anyone in Dallas is encouraged to stop by 3824 Walden Way from 3-8pm to pick up their free bouquets of flowers and other sweets. No Valentine this year? Treat yourself.”

The home itself has been updated, and features an open concept kitchen, formal dining room, office, and large living areas upstairs and downstairs. Three bedrooms (including the master with full en suite) are upstairs, and one is downstairs.

The kitchen has granite counters, a prep island, stainless steel appliances, and a sleek mosaic tile backsplash.

Outside, a two-story deck overlooks a large back yard.

The home is listed for $370,000. You can get more details on today’s open house, and RSVP here.

New Construction in Bluffview

Open House: Sunday, Feb. 17, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

This newly constructed Modern home at 8819 Lakemont Drive is tucked away on a quiet cul de sac in Bluffview, and creates a dramatic entry to the property that starts at the curb, with a private courtyard that leads to a two-story grand entry.

The well-equipped kitchen has a prep sink, second dishwasher, and is open to both the living room and the large covered patio.

“Dining al fresco, enjoying meals cooked on the built-in grill, will become a regular event,” said listing agent Mary Beth Harrison of the Dallas Native Team with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. “Begin or end your day in front of the fireplace on the veranda soaking up your serene surroundings.”

The home also features an office that you’ll love for its gorgeous views of the backyard, and a master retreat with a sitting area and beautiful Bachman green belt views.

The second floor offers a media room and a bonus room with a balcony, plus three en-suite bedrooms.

The four bedroom, four-and-a-half bath home is listed for $2.15 million.

White Rock Creek Trail Soft Modern 

Open House: Sunday, Feb. 17, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Located just steps from the White Rock Creek Trail, this soft modern home at 6809 Bert Lane is on a large lot and has a lot to love, including great outdoor entertaining spaces and a pool.

“Not only is it designed to live in and enjoy, it’s also perfect for casual or formal entertaining of your family and friends,” said listing agent Charlotte Thompson with Dave Perry-Miller In Town.

The kitchen has everything the home chef would want — high end appliances, double oven, gas cook top, plenty of storage and counter space.

“The master retreat includes the expected two sinks, make up area, his and hers walk in closets, separate shower and soaking tub. But also a bar with microwave and refrigerator,” said Thompson.

The other three bedrooms also have en suite baths and walk-in closets, too.

The home is listed for $963,000.
