Linwood

Seems I have to search for properties that aren’t even quite built yet to outrun the nimble Seth Fowler. See this week’s  Tarrant County Tuesday.

And even that is no guarantee. However, after finding that the dreamy Crestwood modern I had wanted to write about had been taken, I stumbled across a new, micro development that is more than promising.

Meet Wingate West 7th — new construction with a modern point of view while paying tribute to pleasing proportions of the past.

The townhouse development consists of two side-by-side buildings of five three-story units. The project is the latest effort from InTown Homes, whose sales are being spearheaded by dynamic broker, Brit Ewers. The project is located in a  neighborhood of mostly modest, single-story houses from the 40s, but lately, because of its desirable location between 7th Street and White Settlement Road, it has become the locus for small townhouse, urban infill development with Linwood Park at its nucleus. That makes the area a bit patchy with a lot of construction activity. Nonetheless, urban pioneers who buy early here are certain to be richly rewarded. Below is the current street view.

This is the perfect location for an executive home: geographically in the center of everything at the Shops at Legacy, Legacy West, and the Golden Corridor, but specifically located outside of the shops proper, where parking can be a challenge. Luckily there’s a two-car garage in this three-bedroom, three and half-bath townhouse, listed for $399,000 by Russell Rhodes of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices PenFed Realty Texas.

The great thing about 1980-built homes are the HUGE rooms, architectural touches, and overall quality found in them. I mean, they just feel sturdy and built to last. That’s how the townhouse at 12385 Montego Plaza in north Dallas feels. The two-bedroom, two and half-bath, 2,188-square-foot home is listed for $329,000 by Megan Stern of Dave Perry-Miller Park Cities.

LakewoodKendra Benningfield was admittedly very new to homebuying when she saw her Lakewood townhouse for the first time — but she knew that it had good bones if the right person got ahold of it.

And she knew she was that right person.

“I originally found my place while living in Uptown and realizing I wanted to be in an actual neighborhood/community,” Benningfield recalled. “I was very green when it came to home buying so I just started looking on Trulia.”

“After a few hours of scrolling the map around to see what would pop up, I happened across this amazingly well built Charlestonian townhouse smack dab in the middle of Lakewood.”

But it wasn’t completely love at first sight. However, Benningfield knew she could put her stamp on the interior of the home.

“It was very closed-in when I purchased, but I knew the bones were there,” she said. (more…)

Twenty windows — that’s how much natural light you can soak in if you end up unable to resist this incredible urban townhome. Apparently, some lucky buyer out there felt the same way and just snatched up this listing repped by Compass agent Mohammed Jaber. It’s not difficult to see why, as this week’s Inwood National Bank Home of the Week has near-universal appeal for pretty much half of homebuyers in Dallas.

“The townhouse appeals to today’s buyer because of its open and ‘loft-like’ floor plan,” Jaber notes about this end-unit townhome — an absolute bargain. “It’s especially attractive to the younger professional buyer who wants to be in a large open space.”

What a way to start Valentine’s Day! Our Inwood Home of the Week is a Tealwood Square townhouse that is in the heart of everything, yet so secluded you’ll have all the tranquility you desire.

Builder Jim Williams completed this Tealwood Square townhouse at 8849 McCraw Drive in 1969. Williams is known not only for Tealwood Square, but also for his work in Caruth Homeplace and Briarwood.

So, where is Tealwood Square? It’s next door to Bluffview and about a minute from the Dallas North Tollway. It’s a private enclave of Devonshire.But you would be hard-pressed to find it without a Realtor. And that Realtor should be Dave Perry-Miller listing agent Tricia Weiner because, you guessed it, this Tealwood Square townhouse is her home!

“It’s so secluded people don’t know where it is,” Weiner said. “One of the things I’ve loved the most about living there is that it’s so tranquil and private. Those neighborhood qualities are hard to find in a bustling Metropolis like Dallas! And being on the creek, shrouded in the giant magnolias and live oaks, it’s like living in a tree house because all you see is green.”

If convenient, lock-and-leave living, a choice West Side location, and an affordable price top your list of must haves, you should definitely take a look at a new listing at 716 Arch Adams Lane. Location? Off 7th Street and within easy walking distance of the museums and 7th Street restaurants and clubs. The street is easy to miss, and that’s a good thing. Though near the heart of so much action, Arch Adams Lane is surprisingly quiet and tranquil. The street front entrance is the garage. The front door is accessed down a private path behind. The design recalls an urban loft conversion with industrial style windows and rusty iron canopies sheltering the entrance. Though the building looks freshly minted, the project was completed in 2004. That has given thoughtfully planned landscaping time to grow and fill in.
