You don’t see homes designed by Dallas midcentury architect Arch Swank come on the market very often because they tend to stay in the family for generations, but if our research serves us right, we found a previously undiscovered Swank home on Eastlawn Drive in Northwest Dallas. This four-bedroom, three-bath home with 3,571-square-feet in Northway Hills is listed by Brandon Stewart of David Griffin & Company for $695,000.


Highland Park townhome

Maybe it’s the beautifully-mature trees that tower taller than this two-story townhome or simply the red brick, but there’s something about this West Highland Park townhome on Westside that feels so stately and elegant. That’s why we’re pleasantly surprised at the asking price for this 2,600-square-foot home priced in the lower $600s.


11219 Saint Judes

A few months ago I attended an estate sale here where I was more enchanted by the house than the treasure inside. This is that house.

Albeit, it’s hard to tell behind the overgrown trees in front, this 3,466-square-foot home on a .37 acre lot is gorgeous. The four-bedroom, four-bath on Saint Judes Drive at Hillcrest and Forest sits high on a corner lot with porte cochere driveway framing the dramatic step-up entrance. Swing the ornate wooden double doors open to the Spanish tile entryway and you can tell this is a special home. A JanMar home.


I’m not sure which has more pinch-its-cheeks charm: the 1926-built Hollywood Heights Tudor on Monte Vista Drive or the adorable bonus home in the backyard. The 1,897 square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bath home is listed by Svetlana Grujic of Compass Realty. The completely renovated home was taken down to the studs and extensively renovated with timeless designer touches inside, but the exterior remains as classic as ever.

In front, you’ll find a porte-cochere situated next to the steeply gabled entry porch that frames the home in a welcoming and charming way. Twin chimney pots crown the prominent chimney in front and give the home an almost textbook Tudor appeal.
