We have more proof that CandysDirt.com Approved Builder S & R Development Inc. can build and sell a home faster than we can write about them. This Preston Hollow house went on the market and was under contract in under ten days.

“There were several on the market at the same time. But this was the only one that sold right away,” said Saad Chehabi, principal at S&R Development.

The 4,800-square-foot home comes with two master bedrooms downstairs, three bedrooms upstairs, a separate gym room, elevator, and storage on both the upstairs and downstairs levels. Priced just under $2 million, it had everything a buyer could want. Even though the home now has residents living in it, we managed to wrangle a few photographs so you can see some of the impressive work the builders did.

Key Residential took on a full remodel of a 90-year-old home and the results are fabulous!

We’re back with another look at the creative problem-solving that Candy’s Dirt Approved Builder Key Residential put in to practice for a home built in 1929. The old brick colonial had undergone multiple renovations during its lifetime and had too much of a piecemeal layout after all the disparate projects.

The goal? To create a cohesive living space with modern upgrades on the interior and upgrade the exterior so it meets the same standards as the revamped interior.

The result? A sophisticated airy plan with vintage finishes that honor the 1920s era of the original home.

A home in the Greenland Hills Conservation District usually has such strict architectural protections around it that owners aren’t allowed to tear down any existing dwellings. However, the house at 5240 Mercedes Avenue was a rare exception.

Since the existing home didn’t have the same Tudor style as the rest of the neighborhood, it was given the coveted status of being teardown-worthy, which led to the perfect combination of two worlds. Thanks to CandysDirt.com Approved Builder Patten Custom Homes we now have a new-build Tudor that is consistent with the nearby properties and has all the construction amenities of a modern home. Foam encapsulation, security camera wiring, a high-end kitchen, beautiful hardwood floors, and a contemporary open-plan layout are just some of the features.

When homeowners bought a remodeled home, it came with an old pool house that definitely hadn’t seen any modern updates in quite a while. That’s where Key Residential, a CandysDirt.com Approved Builder, came in and worked some magic. They tore down what was there and started from scratch to create a backyard haven that is so versatile it can host a party for 50, a dinner for two, or an afternoon pool party for a rambunctious group of kids. When you’re building an outdoor space that has a full working kitchen, a pool, outdoor fireplace, and space for a huge television then practical considerations become just as important as the aesthetics.

A custom-made home in Dallas is an architectural dream to behold. This four-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath home with game room and pool was built by CandysDirt.com Approved Builder Desco Fine Homes at the request of some private clients who wanted a house that followed feng shui design principles while also incorporating their own unique style. Everything from the flow of the stairway to the design elements that stay consistent throughout the home to gradient of the yard from front to back was designed with feng shui in mind.

You could say that JLD Custom Homes were experts at building houses on Tucker Street. They recently completed their sixth home in this little enclave and it just so happens it is the only home available in Lakewood Hills for less than $1 million. The location is superb given that Tucker Street is a cul-de-sac that backs up on to the Santa Fe Trail, so you won’t have any through traffic. Just a peaceful neighborhood in the Lakewood Elementary School attendance area. With four bedrooms, a bonus room, four bathrooms, and a large backyard, this is a perfect addition to the neighborhood.
