Farmersville, Texas, may sound like the name of a fictional town in a movie, but it’s an actual place in Collin County, about 45 miles from the heart of Dallas.

Farmersville, Texas, may sound like the name of a fictional town in a movie, but it’s an actual place in Collin County, about 45 miles from the heart of Dallas.

It’s close enough to Wylie and Rockwall if getting your milk from the grocery store rather than the cow is your thing.

It’s also got some pretty amazing homes with great prices on sprawling acreage.  There is land, people. Your kids can run around in the backyard and have large pets. They can probably even play in the street in some neighborhoods without consequence, but you didn’t hear that from me.

Check out this four-bedroom, two-and-one-half bathroom abode on Waterford Street for just $220,000.

[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 2020! Cheers, from Candy and the entire staff at CandysDirt.com!]

Nikki: This house is sold, but it’s one of our favorites of the year. We love Dallas as much as the next Real Housewife, but what we love most about this house is it proves there are incredible and unexpected houses throughout the Metroplex. You may not instantly think “cool” when you think of Plano, but 1603 15th Street is one reason you most definitely should. Read the original post below or here.

Within walking distance from Downtown Plano, which is still HOT even though they lost their Dude Sweet (RIP 4 real), there’s an adorable bungalow set on almost one-third of an acre. It’s rural living in the middle of the city with easy access to US-75 and basically the world.

This house is so cute and the current owners made it so cool. In the kitchen, you’ll find a tin roof ceiling, exposed brick, and open shelving. It feels modern and eclectic and the evergreen cabinets and butcher block countertops are basically *fire emoji.*

The first thing I want to say about this house, before we even get into how beautifully updated it is or the fact that it’s in Rockwall or the fact that it’s a single-story, three-bedroom, two-bathroom, 1,926-square-foot home, is the fact that the elementary school is called Nebbie Williams.

Nebbie. Williams. Is that the best name of an elementary school ever or what? No need to answer that, because it is.

And now we’ll commence talking about the actual house. Nope, we lied. One more thing we have to call out is the Subdivision is called Random Oaks at the Shores. It’s like the jackpot of good names.

This week we’re headed to Fairview because why not? It’s a town. It’s kid-friendly and it’s popping. Today’s listing is a townhome. That’s right a townhome in a quaint little suburb. And guess what else? There’s shopping, entertainment, and dining very nearby. Like, it’s not walkable, but it’s close and that’s good enough for us.

“Tell us more.”

Okay. Fairview, in case you’re not 100 percent familiar, is just east of Allen and puts you in super close proximity to the Allen Premium Outlets and Watters Creek, which contains a Market Street and all of your dreams basically.

Over on Cherrywood Ave., there’s a three-bedroom, two-bathroom traditional that just hit the market. It’s near UT Southwestern and Parkland so it’s perfect if you’re a med student, nurse, doctor, resident, orderly, or just accident-prone.

It’s recently remodeled and it’s “perfect for owner-occupants and renters alike.” Are you listening, future real estate moguls? This could be the first feather in your mogul-like cap. Are you also listening, people that want a killer home with amazing accents and a spectacular backyard? Your dream home awaits.

The cute little cottage at 10430 Sylvia Drive has a lot going for it including the location. It’s a bit east-ier than you’re thinking, but it’s still close to White Rock, all the trees and the best root beer you’ll ever wrap your lips around at the Dairyette. Plus Casa Linda Bakery, Highland Park Cafeteria, and so much more.

Truly, the greater Casa View area is a solid neighborhood that’s walkable and feels like a community.

Located off Gus Thomasson and Garland, the neighborhood is specifically called Reinhardt. It’s an established neighborhood and most of the homes were built in 1950s. It’s one of the most affordable neighborhoods in East Dallas and definitely worth checking out.

Today’s word is “potential.” As in this townhome off of Interstate 635 and Abrams has so much potential. First of all, it’s a townhome, but it doesn’t have any shared walls. That’s one in the win column.

Now remember what we said, it’s full of potential, and therefore priced accordingly. The seller isn’t interested in repairs or updates so it’s a for-real, for-real “as is” situation.

Now put on your best sequin duster and let’s really get to it.

Rhonda Seacat Hunnicutt organizes pre-demo sales for a living. She works with high-end builders and always sees the gorgeous post-demo results. This means she also gets to see the latest design trends in each of these homes and she’s not above borrowing a little from the pros.

Of course, she’s a pro herself. She remodels homes and condos and just happens to be the brilliant brain behind this Bryan Place condo at 3105 San Jacinto, #317.

This particular unit sits on the third floor of a building with easy access to Downtown Dallas and *ahem* Uber’s new headquarters. It was one of the first buildings to go up in the area back in the day so it’s been a trendsetter from the very beginning.
