Lake Highlands home

Kelsey Faires of Rogers Healy and Associates gave us the heads up to this newly remodeled two-story Lake Highlands home with nearly 4,000 square feet of contemporary style for $869,000. The 1964-built home with five bedrooms, four and half-baths, and 3,965 square feet was taken down to the studs for this complete remodel that includes a one year builder’s warranty.  (more…)

Midway Hollow ContemporaryMidway Hollow is beyond hot. With a wide variety of styles from hip midcentury moderns and classic ranch homes to cozy cottages, there is something for everyone, and it seems almost every street comes with a new amenity — a construction crew. If a home is not being renovated, it’s being razed. Builders are everywhere, and the range of price points is dizzying. When I heard about this Midway Hollow contemporary, I could not wait to share it because it’s just a cut above what you typically find anywhere. And that’s because Carolyn Isler, owner of Isler Homes, took it down to the foundation and rebuilt it.

Oh, my. This one is a beauty. This immaculate renovation at 7512 Colgate Avenue could not be any cuter, from a drive-up that delivers a bit of romance, to impeccably clean lines and endless updates. But I think the stagers (or homeowners) here have really outdone themselves. It’s just so lovely inside. I’ll save the curb appeal for after the jump and instead, show you my favorite room in the house. Sigh. It’s so, so pretty, right?

With two bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,967 square feet, this stunning Caruth Hills ranch-style is listed by Doris Jacobs for $875,000. Just minutes from shopping and dining at NorthPark and Snider Plaza, its location leaves little to be desired. Join us after the jump for more loveliness, including a killer kitchen and a back patio made for entertaining.

Oooh, this one is different. Today’s Saturday Eight Hundred is far more ornate than my usual picks, and it just barely makes it into the $800,000 block. But I dig it in its crazy ornate madness. There’s so much for my imagination to run wild with! With Swarovski crystal chandeliers aplenty and gleaming marble floors, 17183 Club Hill Drive definitely brings the bling. And this French Normandy-inspired home backs up to Bent Tree Golf Course, so the views aren’t half bad, either.

With three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms in nearly 5,500 square feet, this Far North Dallas home is also roomy, to say the least. It’s downright enormous. Speaking of, have you seen your family this week? No worries. Your spouse is hanging out in the wine cellar and the kids are in the pool. You might as well fix yourself a snack in the gourmet kitchen and run a hot bath in the jetted tub. The others can fend for themselves. This week’s pick is listed by Re/Max’s Michael Gaule for $899,500. Join us after the jump for some soaring ceilings and a whole lot of crystal.

Urban living at its finest. That’s what the listing for this property promises, and honestly, it’s hard to argue. With three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms in 3,046 square feet, 2140 Helsminster Drive is certainly urban living at its largest. High ceilings, plantation shutters, and well-planned spaces with high-end finishes make this townhome feel every bit the luxurious city abode. But ultimately, you’ll find that what’s outside truly sets this home apart.

Built in 2013, this spacious townhome is listed by Tony Nuncio of Dallas City Center Realtors for $849,900. Join us after the jump for a roof deck to beat all roof decks.

A high-rise condo with custom everything that’s priced well under a million? You’re not dreaming. Rub your eyes, folks and take a gander at this week’s Saturday Eight Hundred.

This Preston Tower condo, made up of four single units, is the largest in the building. It comprises three bedrooms and three full and one half bathrooms in 2,855 square feet and features and incomparable 120 feet of balcony – and the views to go with it. Clocking in at $850,000 this impeccable condo at 6211 W Northwest Highway is listed by Nancy Martinez with Virginia Cook Realtors. It’s a see-to-believe wonder, my friends.

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…)
