When duplex design is done right, you don’t even realize the stunning home that shines in stature is actually two homes. So, when you drive by the beautiful Barnett West Custom Homes-built property at 3611 Northwest Parkway in University Park, you probably didn’t realize its identical twin is subtly mirrored next to it. Rogers Healy of Rogers Healy and Associates has the unique University Park listing for a million and change.

This single-family attached home is as new as they come, built in 2019 and never lived in. Its sister home next door, which sold quickly in October, has new residents calling it home. In this spacious 4,335-square-foot home, there are four bedrooms and five full bathrooms over three stories in this well-planned open floorplan with hardwoods and high ceilings.


Sleek and simply modern, that’s how you could describe the six new homes that makeup Centre Living at Lakewood, an exclusive new project designed by the award-winning Dallas-based architecture firm FAR+DANG.

Located at Swiss Ave and La Vista, the new Centre Living Homes community is a mix of two single-family homes and four duplex homes. The two- and three-bedroom homes located in the 1900 block of La Croix range from 1,653 to 2,105 square feet with a starting price of $539,900.


Stop what you’re doing. We have the scoop on a George Dahl masterpiece in Preston Hollow! The Imperial House epitomizes Hollywood Regency design at its best, with rare and elegant offerings that don’t sit on the market long. This property has panache, attracting past residents ranging from Elvis to Frank Sinatra to a current WFAA-TV anchor! And now, you too, could be among the select few to own a slice of Imperial House history.

Ged Dipprey and Emily Ray-Porter with Dave Perry-Miller InTown just listed a lovingly restored first-floor condo you have to see to believe.


The single-most striking fact about the new townhomes going up at Swiss Ave Crossing is that they’re single-family detached homes. Yes, a detached townhome with no shared walls!

Centre Living Homes, the custom home builder behind Richardson’s CityLine, Bishop Arts, and the Cedars south of downtown, is halfway complete with the single-family home community called Swiss Ave Crossing. Located at 4100 Swiss Avenue in Old East Dallas near the Baylor Medical District and Deep Ellum, Swiss Ave Crossing by Centre Living Homes will feature 21 fully detached luxury townhomes starting at $459,000.


Coming off the success and rave reviews of NOVEL Bishop Arts, developer Crescent Communities is now leasing NOVEL Deep Ellum, a new 7-story living and entertainment complex at 2900 Canton Street near Malcolm X Blvd. The new building that replaces a block-long one-story industrial building will be home to 231 one- and two-bedroom rental apartments ranging from $1,405 to $3,624 a month.

NOVEL Deep Ellum will feature art by local artists, ground-floor food and beverage options, and a rooftop pool and lounge. It joins a host of new and coming soon rental options in booming Deep Ellum, but what sets them apart is their community-based approach to development. (more…)

Looking to relocate and rein in your downtown Dallas commute? You might consider Skyline Terrace Villas, a new single-family offering by Crescent Estates Custom Homes. With close proximity to both the Dallas North Tollway and I-35, the central Dallas location stands out as pretty hard-to-beat. Just five minutes to the Medical District and the American Airlines Center, Skyline Terrace Villas certainly places a premium on convenience. And space! Lot sizes in Skyline Terrace afford the square footage required for traditional house layouts, not just townhomes.

“That really is the biggest draw,” says Crescent Estates Custom Homes CEO Brad Oellermann. “It’s a unique opportunity to have a large lot close to Dallas. And we’ve been able to build true homes and they feel spacious. They’re livable like a traditional home. That’s very hard to find in a location with downtown views.”


Now, this open-house tour takes things to a whole new level. Tomorrow, October 20, Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty is flinging open the doors to almost 200 homes across North Texas — from Fort Worth to Dallas to Southlake to Lakewood. The prices swing, too, from $229,000 to more than $9 million — proof that it’s not just all museum-quality offerings from the luxury boutique firm founded here in 1960.

But our favorite part of tomorrow’s tour? A baker’s dozen of the homes are priced above $3 million. Those are some prime properties, dear readers, and a way to see luxury living at its bubbly best.
