Metairie

Coming soon to Southlake: The Metairie by Hawkins-Welwood Homes

Dallasites know the quality and prestige that comes with building and living in a Hawkins-Welwood home. The longtime Dallas homebuilder has been building custom homes in the Park Cities, Preston Hollow, North Dallas, and Plano for more than 60 years. The award-winning company is in the planning stages of a new development in Southlake — The Metairie, which will feature timeless architecture, spacious lots, and green spaces. Lot presales are underway.

The coming luxury development at White Chapel Blvd. and Dove Road in north Southlake will be a perfect fit for families seeking one of the best school districts in Texas as well as empty-nesters seeking low-maintenance homeownership, says Kelly Ongena of Hawkins-Welwood.

“These luxury custom homes offer everything you could want from a single-family home on a quarter-acre lot with the convenience of a HOA-maintained community.”

It’s no secret that Southlake is full of show-stopping luxury homes, so it’s the details that really set these glamorous properties apart. This home in coveted Westwyck Hills is one that has it all: A fantastic location near Grapevine Lake, a floor plan ideal for entertaining, and gorgeous outdoor spaces. If that recipe for the perfect house doesn’t sound enticing enough already, a recently renovated kitchen sweetens the deal further to make this home the epitome of luxury. 

Whether you love to cook or thrive on stocking your fridge with delicious takeout leftovers, this fresh, white kitchen has everything you need. A massive built-in fridge, Wolf range with double ovens, double dishwashers, and a Wolf microwave and convection steam oven make this kitchen capable of handling any Thanksgiving dinner or all-day birthday party, no matter how many guests you invite.

KellerPeople love Southlake for the schools and the amenities, but they don’t necessarily always love the price tag involved in living there. But Keller, the neighboring ‘burb, has long been considered a great alternative — close to all the Southlake amenities (plus a few great ones of its own), great schools, and friendlier house prices.

Keller ISD got an A grade from the Texas Education Agency’s A-F accountability scoring, too. 

This week’s Weekend One Hundred is an example of what you can get for less than $200,000 in Keller — and it’s actually quite a bit. Located in Keller’s West Bursey Ranch neighborhood, the three-bedroom, two-bath house sits in a cul-de-sac. (more…)

This week’s Suburb Sunday sends us to Southlake for three selections of simply gorgeous homes. (I just couldn’t resist the lovely alliteration.) One is transitional, another is modern, and the third is a geodome you have to see to believe. Which do you prefer? (Pick the dome!)

instagramDo you follow us on Instagram? Because it’s becoming THE place to share great listings and then get them on our radar — just like Mona Barnett did with this Southlake stunner she has on the market.

“I would love for you to take a peek at this unique listing I have in Southlake,” Barnett, who is with Haute Realty, told us. “It sits on 2.33 acres and backs to Army Corps of Engineering property, and the main level is up int he trees and the walk-out basement is built into a hill.”

Hold up — basement, in Texas? Tell. Us. More.

The custom Neo-Prairie home, located at 2480 Raintree Drive, was built by architect David Haverfield, and is full of luxury designer finishes and lighting on the inside, and boasts stunning grounds and a pool outside. (more…)

It’s not every day you come across a dreamy, peaceful estate ideally located near sumptuous shopping and dining. Situated on 1.5 acres, this beautiful house in the heart of Southlake is that rare find. But, shhhh … it’s off-market, so not everyone knows it’s up for grabs. Once you see the sprawling green lawn, airy open floor plan, and chic gourmet kitchen, you’ll want to be the one to call it home next.

Southlake

From staff reports

If your home is your castle, this nearly 20,000-square-foot mansion in Southlake, with its turrets and stained glass, takes that up a notch — and it will be up for auction this month.

The home at 3716 North White Chapel Boulevard sits on nearly two acres, and has eight bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, and four powder rooms. It includes an elevator, in-home theater, workshop, and a garage with space for 15 cars.

 

A chef’s kitchen, wet bar, and large common spaces provide plenty of room for entertaining, and outdoors, a grotto-style pool and hot tub provide the fun and frolic, while the covered and open lounge areas and outdoor kitchen provide the opportunities for cooling down and dining al fresco. (more…)

VisitDallas

A very good question: why does someone promoting Dallas, receiving almost a $700,000 salary funded by taxpayers to in fact promote Dallas, live and raise his family in Southlake?

Well, Mr. Jones actually does live in Dallas at The House, by Philippe Starck, where he and his wife, Patricia, own a 1,487 square foot condo on the ninth floor.

We should also clarify something else that has been a source of confusion, by the way: Funding for VisitDallas comes from a tax paid by visitors when they stay at Dallas hotels, not taxes from local residents.

Years ago, in 2004, Phillip Jones and his wife, Patricia bought a new house at 930 Deer Hollow Blvd. in Southlake. The house is now valued by the Tarrant County Appraisal District at $652,000. The home, in an area called Southlake Woods, is 3886 square feet on almost .60 of an acre. And this is where they raised their two children, who are now young adults.

About four years ago, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings apparently told Phillip that he really should live in Dallas, not Southlake,. So in 2014, the couple bought a unit on the ninth floor at The House by Philippe Starck. I’m told that Phillip actually rented the condo for seven years, then bought it. (more…)
