Splurge: Eye-Catching East Dallas Townhouse With A Turf Yard For $695K

For starters, our splurge comes with a lot of bells and whistles. The newer townhome is in acclaimed Mockingbird Elementary, has a low-maintenance turf yard, and sits in a great location just steps from all the Greenville action. In fact, the listing says, “This newer home offers the epitome of convenience, minimum maintenance, and an exciting urban lifestyle.”

The three-bedroom, two-full-and-one-half-bathroom townhouse is light and bright with plenty of space to refresh and renew during trying times. This includes a 2,893-square-foot layout filled with natural light. It’s adorned with gorgeous wood floors, clean lines, and walls of glass to a fantastic upstairs balcony and a lower level backyard. 

And the shiny new chef’s kitchen turns heads! It has gray cabinetry and stainless appliances, with easy flow into a gracious living with gas fireplace. A floating wood and iron staircase makes a statement as well and leads to the upper level master suite with spa-bath. Complete with an attached two-car-garage, this home is a blank canvas awaiting your personal touch.

Scott Jackson with Compass has listed 5617 Longview Street for $695,000.

Steal: Newly Built Single-Family Contemporary With All The Upgrades For $549K

For nearly $165,000 less, you could find yourself keeping chill in our single-family steal. It offers four-bedrooms, two-full-and-one-half-bathrooms, plus an expansive covered patio for grilling out or catching some fresh air. 

Inside, you’ll enjoy plenty of contemporary style, including a muted gray chef’s kitchen with stainless steel appliances and breakfast bar, plus a large pantry. Walls of windows look out to the private fenced backyard, while a fireplace anchors the open-concept family room.

There is also a tranquil master that the listing says, “will satisfy your need for a private sanctuary.” It has a huge walk-in closet and spa bath with glass shower and jetted tub. If you need to work from home, a built-in desk area in the upper landing does the trick.
