I could not let Friday pass by without showing off this beautiful northwest Dallas renovation from Mike Rodriguez and RS Construction, a well-known and highly-respected remodeler with more than 15 years’ experience with renovations in North Dallas and the Park Cities. . 

These home crafting geniuses took a four bedroom northwest Dallas ranch on Beauty Lane and in four months turned her innards into a total sleek show of beauty. Oh and the address is 10924 Beauty Lane. She had 2856 square feet, 382 square feet added during the reno. She is being marketed by The Source Group at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s, who will have TWO open houses there this weekend: Saturday from 1 to 3pm, Sunday from 2 to 4 pm.

First of all, the property: you get almost a quarter of an acre (.228, 80 by 125 feet) that is loaded with trees. Not junk trees, either, but thickly trunked mature Live Oaks and Red Oaks.

In fact, one is in front of the house and I beg the buyers to wrap that tree with white holiday lights and invite me over for a glass of (spiked) eggnog this December.

This area is well known for lusciously treed lots. How do I know? We bought over 30 years ago on Ainsworth, a few block away. Thirty years ago we thought the trees and yards were amazing and they even bigger now. Plus the access from this area is divine: newly completed LBJ west to Coppell or DFW, or east to the Dallas North Tollway. It’s the folks east of Central who are hurting now for LBJ. We’ve paid our dues with traffic, congestion and construction these last six years: how many standing-still single line jams did you sit in? It’s high time for us to hit 90mph in the Express Lanes and go!

So they started with a great piece of verdant green dirt, found a typical 1964 ranch home and went all out. I mean ALL OUT! Everything inside was gutted down to the studs, and then the work began to create an open-floor living paradise with attached two-car garage. Absolutely everything is brand NEW!
