Knox-Henderson Townhome

So, you’re on the fence about downsizing. You’ve gotten used to living with the space around you as it was when the kids were still at home (although it’s a little more organized and a lot less sticky now). But maybe you’re not ready to live in a high-rise, or maybe the idea of a patio home in the suburbs isn’t your thing. 

For those who want to pare down a bit without losing easy access to their favorite Dallas-area amenities, this townhome near Knox-Henderson — our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week — is the perfect solution.

“This property gives an owner the ability to enjoy urban living in the heart of Dallas without sacrificing on square footage or garage space, with two private yards and three patios at an attractive price,” notes Rustin Smith, listing agent for 2627 N. Garrett Ave. “Dallas is at your fingertips, whether you want to walk to the restaurants and shops of Knox-Henderson, take a short drive downtown, or bike the Katy Trail. Being a few blocks from North Central Expressway makes accessing all the city has to offer easy and quick.”

Our Splurge: Phillip Murrell with Compass has listed 4206 Buena Vista Street Apt E for $669,000.

As one of Dallas’ most hip and trendy nightlife districts, Knox-Henderson is where people want to be. Last week we couldn’t take our eyes off this Dave Perry-Miller-owned cottage! So much so we decided to take a closer look at the neighborhood for this week’s Splurge vs. Steal. Which Knox-Henderson condo would you choose, the modern masterpiece splurge, or the LeComte Homes steal? We would love to hear in the comments!

Courtney Jubinsky of Dave Perry-Miller Preston Center has listed 3119 Oliver Avenue for $695,000.

Landing the perfect Knox-Henderson home at an affordable price is like finding a needle in a haystack, right? Wrong! We found one of the last remaining single-family homes in the area, and received a call from Dave Perry-Miller himself to chat about this once-in-a-lifetime listing.

“I think what makes the property exceptional or unique are the following: It is one of the only single-family houses left in all of Knox-Henderson in the entire city,” says Perry-Miller. “Secondly, it has a detached garage, a wonderful screened-in porch, and a terraced courtyard in the back, so it’s got a certain amount of privacy. And my gosh, I lived there for the last year and a half to two years after I sold my big house in Bluffview and I loved it!”

Every so often, I’ll get tipped about a listing in Dallas that seems too good to be true — a scam, some might say. Sometimes you get photos of the inside, and immediately understand why the Realtor or owner chose a bargain price.

Other times, you know immediately it’s a scam. And that’s what happened Friday when someone mentioned a three-bedroom, two-bath listing near Knox-Henderson that had been priced at $34,000.

Now, we’ve done this before, and by now most CandysDirt.com readers know we have zero reticence about engaging with folks that are probably up to no good. A few years ago we did just that when a property owner found her rental listing duplicated, with the new listing offering the house in Highland Park for a ridiculously low $1,000 a month.

Now, I’d love to send you to the actual listing, but after being alerted by the actual property owner (more on that in a minute), Zillow pulled the fraudulent listing down. However, knowing this would probably be the case, I grabbed screenshots. (more…)

 

Neighborhoods all along the North Central Expressway corridor are seeing resurgence and reinvestment in a very big way. Long neglected areas, once full of ramshackle and run down houses, are becoming a land of opportunity in the realm of urban infill for developers and architects. It is fascinating to watch the changing landscape, and though it’s sad to lose the cultural value of older homes, it’s heartening to see builders invest in interesting, engaging design. It allows a generation to put a stamp on the area, and sometimes to great results. 

Today’s High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans is an example of what’s great about modern design. With clean lines and a contemporary facade, 2215 Madera adds something different to the neighborhood landscape of Knox-Henderson. It’s a fabulous listing from Virginia Cook Realtor Ed Murchison

Kohler Exterior 1

Last night, my head was filled to capacity at the Kohler showroom grand opening do — invite-only ‘natch. Our own Leah Shafer scored me tix after she alerted us of the impending opening.

First, the Kohler companies — Kohler, Ann Sacks, Kallista, and Roburn — filled my eyes and brain with ideas galore.  Then La Duni filled my taste buds with treats as I walked around the joint. Thankfully, I ran into Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate gal pal Sharon Quist or I’d have been faucet-fondling all on my own, and probably on a watch-list by now. As it was I got to meet design power couple Sherry Hayslip and architect-husband Cole Smith.

Great news for design professionals and homeowners alike: Kohler is expanding availability of its bath and kitchen products with the opening of the Kohler Signature Store by Facets of Dallas in the Knox-Henderson neighborhood. Owned and operated by Hajoca Corporation, the new location will be the fourth Signature Store within the company portfolio.

Located at 4640 McKinney Ave., this will be the 19th signature store in the country, and the only signature store in Texas.

“Dallas has a high concentration of our target customer, both home owners and trade professionals, and home owners in the area value good design, American-made products symbolized by good quality,” said Michelle Kilmer, Kohler’s Director of Showrooms. “Knox-Henderson is a regional draw with great shopping, great brands, and great restaurants, all of which appeal to our ideal customer.”

The 3,600-square-foot Kohler Signature Store will offer the full breadth of the Kohler Co. portfolio. In addition, the Kohler Signature Store will feature their exclusive Kohler Surfaces line as well as kitchen cabinets made locally.

Nadine Meyer loves real estate so much, she didn’t even wait to finish college to get started selling it.

During her senior year at the University of North Texas, Meyer initially was looking for a part-time marketing internship. As fate would have it, a family friend’s real estate business was looking for help.

“That started my love for the business,” says Meyer, principal at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s The Meyer Group. She received her real estate license that same year and was hosting open houses before she’d even graduated.

Fast-forward to 2016, and Meyer is applying that same drive and initiative to power some of the hottest property deals in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The latest: Larkspur Capital Partners’ Capitol Flats — a four-story, 38-unit condo development in the Fitzhugh corridor area which, provided the city of Dallas agrees to a slight zoning change, will offer urban homebuyers a calmer but still-hip alternative to the Uptown scene.

Preliminary plans for Larkspur's Capital Flats show

For Meyer, who is the exclusive agent for this first-of-its kind condo development at 5209 Capitol Ave., Capitol Flats is a chance not only to build on her previous success in the area, but also provide valuable input to Larkspur. Having sold a neighboring project in 2009, Meyer spoke with her former clients about Larkspur’s plans for the area.

“I love to be involved in the process with them from the beginning,” she says. “Being involved and working with these buyers daily gives me first-hand insight into what is missing in the market and what buyers are looking for.”

For Meyer, selling in the Knox-Henderson corridor is equal parts passion and hard work.
