BEFORE AND AFTER: Behold the Power of this Richardson Reno to Attract Buyers | CandysDirt.com

We love a good before-and-after real estate success story and we’ve found one that shines in Richardson. 

The 1975 home at 1706 Yorkshire Dr. went from outdated to outstanding, getting 37 showings and four offers, one of which was chosen yesterday for over-list. That’s just one reason it is our Thursday Three Hundred

This flip is the work of Holly Montilla and her husband of Moxy Real Estate+Design, a new Dallas company that takes buyers and investors through the process of home buying and renovating with an eye toward luxury and a modern feel. 

“This house was one of our first projects with this particular investor and we love this style of property where we can open it up,” Holly said. “A big hurdle [for people] is the renovation process — they’re not able to do it on their own. We take that off our clients’ shoulders.”

This home has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bath, two living areas, and 2,047 square feet on one story, built in 1975.

[Editor’s note: Merry Christmas! This week, we’re taking time off to focus on our loved ones, so we are sharing some of our favorite stories from this year. Keep an eye out for our top features from the archives as we rest and get ready for a brilliant 2018! Cheers, from Candy and the entire staff at CandysDirt.com!]

From Leah Shafer: I love a great story. So when I saw this Munger Place townhome, which I chose for my Thursday Three Hundred, its rich history appealed to me. In our era of tear-downs and “bigger-newer-now” mentality, it pleases me immensely to see a 1916 building made appealing for today’s homebuyer. I hope you enjoy and appreciate this fun flashback to January 26, 2017.  


Using most standards from around the world, Dallas homes aren’t very old at all. Sure, you’ll find the occasional 1920’s property, but rarely anything older. Not so with today’s Thursday Three Hundred, a slice of Dallas history as the site of the original Piggly Wiggly store, built in 1916. It is also rumored to have been a speakeasy during the Prohibition era.

Located at 315 N. Collett Ave. this is a rare townhome in Munger Place, both architecturally and historically significant. It offers a distinctly loft-like vibe inside. Think 12-foot ceilings, exposed ductwork and rafters, and exposed brick with custom texture on the walls.

This property is full of stories, and not just its own: the reclaimed maple hardwood floors were recovered from the former gym at the Hockaday School. Pretty cool.

With three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,249 square feet on one story, this is a spacious townhome with luxe extras, like three-zone wiring for total house sound, including the front patio and courtyard.

This is such an unusual, storied property, located near N. Munger Boulevard and Columbia Avenue, just minutes from downtown Dallas — let’s take a look.
