3216 Colgate Front

I love the story behind this gorgeous home. It was built in the true “transitional” style — the exterior and materials are high-quality and timeless, while the shapes and angles are all very modern feeling. Lots of clean lines and a cool neutral palette go so well with classical design attributes like coved ceilings and marble accents. It’s marketed by one of the fastest-rising agents in Dallas — Alex Roostaei of Allie Beth Allman & Associates — for $2.995 million. Considering the amazing location and incredible finish-out of this home, that’s quite a good price.

The style, the location, the expert build — all of this make 3216 Colgate a truly High Caliber home,  a property with matchless design and thoughtful construction. Of course, for a home like this, securing a loan should be an equally high-caliber experience, one that Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans could provide. Lisa, a seasoned mortgage professional, knows that financing an amazing home must be a just as flawless as the home itself.

1019 Sarasota Curb

Yes, yes, this is another glorious home from Alex Roostaei, a young and driven Allie Beth Allman agent. In fact, you’ll be surprised to hear that this amazing Realtor is marketing another property on the same street as one we featured from him earlier this year.

Roostaei, who sold 1115 Sarasota Circle in February just days after we posted about that romantic Tudor. And brand spanking new to the market is 1019 Sarasota Circle, another gorgeous home with thoughtful updates that is oh-so-classy! Roostaei is marketing this beautiful abode on this gorgeous tree-lined street in Hollywood Heights for $549,000.

1115 Sarasota Front

The Hollywood/Santa Monica neighborhood is hot right now, with hundreds of families looking for the perfect home in this sweet little subdivision, but thanks to higher prices and a market that is poised for even more growth, it’s hard to find the right house for the right buyer.

Still, there are some very lovely homes in this area, including 1115 Sarasota Circle. While this beauty blends with the rest of the Tudors and cottages in the area, you’ll be surprised to hear it was actually built just 13 years ago, a labor of love by a retired builder, Daryl Davis. It’s marketed by Allie Beth Allman agent Alex Roostaei for $549,000.

“This home was built for [Daryl] and his wife back in 2001. He’s one of those guys who if he’s going to do something,  he does it correctly,” Roostaei said. “He built this house not only to be beautiful and functional, but also to be just as sound behind the walls and in the construction.”

1115 Sarasota Entry

Sounds like this beautiful stone-and-brick-clad home will stand the test of time just like the rest of the 1920s-era Tudors you’ll find in Hollywood Heights and in Lakewood Heights. This particular home has three bedrooms, three full baths and two half baths, a huge backyard and a two-car garage with an air-conditioned studio/office space upstairs.

Inside you’ll find elegant millwork and trim, with glossy stained hardwood mouldings throughout. The gorgeous fireplace in the living room is modeled after Rookwood fireplaces that are common in the area. The dining room is spacious, perfect for entertaining, and has a lovely chandelier overhead.

1115 Sarasota Kitchen 1115 Sarasota Breakfast

In the kitchen you’ll fall for the beautiful red cabinets and gorgeous pendant and wall-mount light fixtures that add a soft vintage flair. Of course, you’ll find high-end stainless appliances and a built-in, made-to-match refrigerator. A wine nook and a beautiful island complete the space, which benefits from tons of natural light from the windows. There’s a beautiful breakfast nook next to the kitchen with huge windows and a lovely, understated fireplace.

1115 Sarasota Master 1115 Sarasota Master Bath 1115 Sarasota Vanity

Upstairs, the master suite is just absolutely adorable. The same touches you love in a 1920s Tudor can be found in this home, including the adorable commode with a vessel sink modeled to look like an old wash pan. The woodwork, honeycomb tile, and the cast-iron claw-foot tub make it a trip back in time. Nostalgic and more romantic than a New England bed and breakfast!

1115 Sarasota Screen Porch 1115 Sarasota Yard

Just off the breakfast room is the screened porch, which opens to the huge, grassy backyard. In all, this home is perfect for lovers of vintage details with tons of modern amenities that make this incredible property a perfect Valentine for anyone!
