However, this listing from David Griffin & Company Realtor Robert Kucharski is the exception to this general rule. This Bryan Parkway Tudor is a recent build in a cozy, quaint historic neighborhood close to downtown Dallas, offering easy living in a fantastic location.

It’s almost St. Patrick’s Day, and we just can’t believe our luck. Not only were we able to find a truly high-caliber home to feature this week, but this huge house in Cedar Hill is so wonderfully secluded and private, with nature on all sides and a backyard that’s perfect for kids that we couldn’t ignore it. 

What’s not to love about 2424 Amberleaf Court, a listing from David Griffin and Company Realtors agent Lori Ericsson in the Lake Ridge subdivision. It’s such a stellar family home, complete with everything you could want and nothing you don’t — like neighbors! It’s another fantastic High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.

“It’s a fun house located in Cedar Hill,” Ericsson said. “It has a family friendly floorplan with dual staircases, master bedroom downstairs, three bedrooms and a fantastic media room upstairs.”

That sounds like the perfect layout for epic family gatherings and slumber parties all year! Want to try your luck? Find out more about this gem after the jump:

As more and more of Dallas’ urban core transforms from single-family homes to more dense, modern development, neighborhoods are seeing quite the renaissance, with more and more young professionals and city-dwelling families finding the perfect combination of location, amenities, and community. The area we call East Village — the residential neighborhood just east of City Place, near North Central Expressway — typifies this trend. 

This week’s High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans is the perfect example of a centrally located, well-designed, and superbly accessible townhome in East Village. It’s a listing from Compass agent Phillip Murrell that will show you that you can have it all, perfectly wrapped up in beautiful modern design.

“Buyers will love that this home is newer construction, but isn’t the same cookie-cutter, three-story townhome,” Murrell said of 2321 Rusk Court. “At two stories, this home has a true modern design that capitalizes on its lengthy floor plan to afford the homeowner an incredible amount of natural light.”

The Azure is a building that draws plenty of buyers thanks to its beautiful design and great Uptown location.

It seems as if Joshua Nimmo will become something akin to Charles Dilbeck one day. The award-winning modernist architect is seeding the Dallas landscape with his designs, colonizing some transitioning areas of the city much like Dilbeck brought his eclectic designs to East Dallas, Oak Cliff, and beyond. However, with Nimmo’s sleek architecture, the placemaking effect is one that offers a deep, cleansing breath to areas that have suffered from decades of blight and neglect. 

As listing agent Robert Kucharski categorizes his Nimmo-designed listing at 2207 Ashby, the home is efficient by design, making use of every inch of space. This is a High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans that will lower your blood pressure. If you’ve recently KonMari’d your home and are looking for a dwelling that “sparks joy,” this is definitely inspiration for that, though as Kucharski notes, it’s already under contract.

As far as architectural trends go, there’s nothing with staying power quite like the lines of a transitional modern farmhouse, complete with angular rooflines, symmetrical windows, broad hearths, and classic color schemes. Situated on one of the best streets in University Park and designed by one of our favorite architecture firms — Stocker Hoesterey Montenegro Architects — this gorgeous transitional modern farmhouse listed by Allie Beth Allman & Associates luxury real estate expert Nora Ling Lane is timeless, and could easily be the location for a romantic comedy or engrossing love story.

It’s easy to see why 3828 Greenbrier is our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans, but that won’t stop us from telling you all about it anyway.

You can tell from the exterior of this listing that inside, it’s basically drowning in natural light. And not only does the floor plan allow light to effortlessly move through the spaces, but the views are splendid, too.

Located inside the exclusive Lake Forest subdivision, there’s not much about this classic Hill Forest Drive mansion that doesn’t scream “high caliber.” Built in 2000, this home received a complete and thorough renovation recently that has made this gem of a listing into the crown jewel of the neighborhood.

“Everything about this home is simply remarkable,” says Debbie Ingram, listing agent of 6917 Hill Forest, this week’s High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. “One steps into this home, which is an oasis and welcome respite from the outside world!”

Ingram describes this Hill Forest Drive mansion as chic, sophisticated, classy, and timeless — which is what we expect of such an outstanding High Caliber Home. And the remodel doesn’t disappoint, either.

“A complete, gutted remodel of the home in the last few years implemented the finest in design, materials, and craftsmanship,” Ingram added. In fact, the interior remodel totaled more than $750,000 in upgrades, making this classic Hill Forest Drive mansion an absolute deal at $1.618 million.

Turtle Creek Pad

There are very few condos in which I could easily see myself living, mostly because I’m rather fond of backyards and front porches, as are my two dogs and rambunctious 7-year-old. That said, this particularly stylish unit inside The Beverly on Turtle Creek definitely has my eye. 

“The designers who made this home so special are the homeowners who brilliantly selected everything themselves,” says Harriet Shaw, the listing agent of this week’s High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. “Their visionary expertise and impeccable coordination of interiors and decor in fact was featured in D Home 2018.”

A lot of the time, when I fall in love with a home, I see that long list of exclusions and my heart just sinks. I’m no designer, and when a home is expertly furnished, it’s hard to not want to buy all the furnishings and fixtures that fill it so well. 

But that’s not the case with this particularly stylish High Caliber Home, says Shaw. In fact, all of the gorgeous furnishings are up for grabs should you want to negotiate.
