Welcome home to the Regency Place Community. Listing Agent Bob Moran with Dave Perry-Miller InTown said the two-bedroom, two-bathroom house is like the Goldilocks Story – it’s not too big and not too small.

You can downsize from a big house or upsize from a condo. With the house on Highplace, it can all be yours!!! And again, this is a whole detached house with its own little lawns and no adjoining walls. Just so we’re clear, turkeys.

Old Lake HighlandsBeautiful brick and a super fun exterior color palette? Updated throughout, but it also maintains the original charm and character of the house? OH, AND IT FEEDS INTO HEXTER ELEMENTARY? That’s not just a yes, or even a double yes, it’s actually all the yeses.

Let’s take a look at this charming charmer located in Old Lake Highlands. First of all, LOCATION. With Easton you can take Mockingbird and head Downtown or boogie down Northwest Highway to connect with North Central Expressway, I-635, the Dallas North Tollway, and everything else. PLUS White Rock Lake, the Arboretum, and Casa Linda are just around the corner.

Tucked away up north, there’s an updated 1981 home located within walking distance to Saigling Elementary and Cheyenne Park in Plano. We know the neighborhood and it’s one of our favorites. It’s walkable and there’s even a cool coffeeshop – Mudleaf – nearby.

The house is a three-bedroom, two-bathroom spread with over 2,260 square feet. It has a perfect little pool that gets lots of shade to keep it cooler in the heat of summer. There’s a patio, a firepit that stays and a dog run.

Inside it’s been updated from top to bottom and it’s all modern.

Built in 1962, this Midcentury-style house was a later arrival to the era, but you know what? We’ll take it.

The angles, the ceiling, the updates. Come on. This is a white-and-gray house that feels so modern and open — it’s just waiting for your pops of colors.

Out back there’s a concrete deck shaped like a hexagon. Something different, something fun and that’s kind of the theme of the house.

Out front, you’ll find a fully wooded wall and a matching flower box. Your biggest challenge in this house will be keeping the landscape alive to look as cool and contemporary as it does today.

If you like the charm of a historical cottage with all the updates and want one that’s so picture perfect you almost can’t stand it, go check out this home in downtown McKinney (AKA The Mecca of suburban downtowns).

It’s so cute and walkable and we’ve written about it before so we won’t bore you with a regurge. It’s lovely, though, and perfect and let’s have dinner and shop and coffee and pie. Those are all things you can do. And get your picture taken and your hair did.

Now that that’s out of the way, let’s dig in on this house. It’s so pretty.

Write what you know, right? That’s why I typically gravitate towards 1980s-built soft contemporary homes, popcorn ceilings and all. But I became a fan of midcentury modern style the moment I purchased a Mies Van Der Rohe Barcelona Table reproduction and started learning more about the architecture and design of this distinctive era. I’m a novice though, so I tend to defer to other CandysDirt expert writers about MCM homes.

I’m taking the plunge though with this Bud Oglesby midcentury modern townhome at 3615 Gillespie Street #A in Oak Lawn, listed for $345,000 by Charles Gregory with Dave Perry Miller Real Estate.

Listing agent Heather Wilkinson of Fathom Realty says homes in the gated Hickory Estates neighborhood on Lake Lewisville don’t come on the market very often, but when they do they go quickly.

The 1978-built stucco home has 1,652 square feet on half an acre that backs up to the lake and is listed for $384,900.

Chauncey Pham of Phamily Realty Group in Denton gave us the heads up on our CandysDirt.com Facebook group to a really pretty flip she and her husband completed at 1705 Woodbridge Court in Arlington, and apparently, others fell in love with it as much as we did. In just six days, this 1986-built split-level home listed at $329,900 went under contract. Here’s why:
