4839-Junius-Front-2

We’ve all seen it happen: A well-meaning buyer purchases an older home inside a historic district and sets to work making a 100-year-old home fit a 21st century lifestyle, but instead of maintaining the character and feel of the home, they iron out the quirkiness and history into basic oblivion.

However, in the case of this lovely listing from David Griffin & Company Realtor Courtney Tauriac, you get modern amenities with all of the charm of a historic property. With style for miles, this warm 1914-built prairie home in the Peak’s Addition neighborhood is our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.

5544 Goodwin Front

While I adore Craftsman homes from the outside, there’s only so much wood and Mission-style furniture that I can take. Sure, the Arts & Crafts homes of Vickery Place are as iconic as you can get in this style, but for interiors, I definitely lean more toward a contemporary aesthetic.

Thankfully, so does our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. It’s a new listing from David Griffin & Company agent Bart Thrasher, and it’s sure to please your Craftsman-turned-contemporary design style thanks to its effortless combination of clean lines, natural materials, and open spaces.

1001 Turner Ave Front

Though it sat unchanged and rather unremarkable for years, 1001 Turner Avenue never lost its vintage charm. It just needed a skilled person with a vision to bring it back to its splendor. Built in 1925, this two-story traditional in the sought-after Kessler Highlands neighborhood has so much personality and character. Now it really shines, thanks to a buyer with great sense and vision.

The transformation from hodge-podge to sleek and beautiful has earned it the title of High Caliber Home of the Week, that’s for sure. If you have your heart set on this home, I sadly report that it’s already under contract, though it wouldn’t hurt if you went ahead and called Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans to get pre-approved and ready to put in your highest and best offer should the deal fall through.

Jump to see what this home looked like before its stylish transformation!

Thanks to their hard work, we’re pretty sure these sellers will get an offer on this beautiful North Oak Cliff home in a jiffy, so if it’s speaking to you, better call Lisa Peters today to get pre-approved and ready to bid!

6615 Bandera 1A Front

The Drexel Park Hollow condominiums is in a fantastic location. It’s ridiculously close to both the Tollway and Northwest Highway, but without all of the terrible congestion at preston Road. The building itself is a classic layout that allows for courtyard views and a visual buffer from the street, as well as quiet public spaces.

And inside the luxurious building you’ll find some fab amenities and this stellar listing from David Griffin & Company Realtor Micky Carr. Unit 1A at 6615 Bandera is our High Caliber Home of the Week Sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.

“This area is so desireable,” Carr said. “Unlike some of our city’s high-rises and mid-rises, this building is located within a residential neighborhood, perfect for an evening walk.”
