How cute is this house? So cute. Once we get inside, I have a few … notes. But on the whole, it is a lovely 1941 traditional featuring an uber-charming drive-up, tasteful updates, and lots and lots of room. With five bedrooms and five bathrooms in 4,210 square feet it’s really spacious – just perfect for a growing family. Becky Frey with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty listed 5019 Elsby Avenue for $879,000.

Vickery Place modern townhouse facade.ashxYou know a home has star power when it’s a TV series location twin. Last season, Bravo Network’s reality show, The Real Housewives of Dallas, was looking for a knocked-out modern home. One that would sway Tiffany Hendra’s musician husband Aaron away from thoughts of Nashville and convince him Big D could indeed be home. Tiffany, in case you are Bravo deprived, is one of the leading ladies on RHOD. They loved the look of these Vickery Place modern townhouses, but they were too darned late. The 5411 Melrose Avenue townhouse was snapped up before they could get an offer in place.

Our Saturday Eight Hundred — right next door at 5409 Melrose Avenue and an exact twin of 5411 — was not yet available. Dang, we could have rubbed elbows with Tiff and Aaron at Trader Joe’s or downed cocktails next to them at Capital Grill on a regular basis. (more…)

5332 Miller Front

For the most part, I’m not a “big house” person. Small, compact, well-planned homes are more my jam. Still, part of me loves the idea of versatile, wide-open floor plans with plenty of room to spread out. Often times, though, homes that start to cross into the realm of 4,000 square feet feel sterile in all of their open space. However, in the case of this listing from Dallas City Center Realtors David and Sharon Cox at 5332 Miller Ave. in Vickery Place, the spaces are expansive, yet still warm and inviting. And with four bedrooms, four full and one half baths, and 4,189 square feet replete with oodles of storage, you’ll find tons of opportunities to stow clutter and fill these rooms with laughter, not junk. The Cox team has this home on the market for $827,000.
