Colleyville homes

This home at 6905 Westmont Drive in Colleyville has unique treeline views from the pool deck.

Typically for Suburb Sunday, we highlight homes within three different price ranges, or three distinctly different parts of the city to show a slice of life there. This week’s Suburb Sunday is a little bit different because we chose three $1.7 million-plus homes for their unique architectural or design elements that make them one-of-a-kind. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Colleyville:

ESTATE WITH GUEST HOUSE IS A UNIQUE GEM

mistletoeOur Saturday Six Hundred for this week was an obvious choice — and not just because it happens to sit on Mistletoe Drive in historic Hollywood Heights-Santa Monica neighborhood.

It’s also because it’s a charming Tudor that has only been on the market two times in its history — which is remarkable because it was built in 1935. It’s also a home that could be a really great property if someone with the right vision came in.

First, the positives of this home — beautiful hardwoods throughout, original features like beams, wooden ceilings, light fixtures, and a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace make this home at 6919 Mistletoe Dr. a home filled with character. Many of the windows, in fact, still possess their original hand-blown glass.

Rachel Trowbridge recently moved to Allie Beth Allman & Associates after five years with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate.

“I was very happy at Dave Perry-Miller,” Trowbridge said. “It’s a great place but there were a few reasons that made me decide to move.”

Among the factors she cited were the hands-on involvement of Allie Beth and Pierce Allman in both their business and the community.  She was also impressed with the low turnover rate of agents and their ability to network and sell high-end products.

“To be in house with those agents now is just great,” Trowbridge said. “I can learn from them.  It’s exciting to be with high producers that help push you ahead.”

WoodrowEvery Thursday, we bring you our pick of the hottest North Texas properties in our CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week. These are the places you don’t want to miss that weekend. And this week, our homes all have one Dallas ISD feeder pattern in common — the Woodrow Wilson High School feeder pattern.

If you’ve never checked out Woodrow Wilson High, you owe it to yourself to investigate, because from academics (it’s an International Baccalaureate school, and routinely gets multiple distinctions from the Texas Education Agency) to fine arts (its band has been featured on the Today show) to athletics, there’s a reason it’s one of the most sought-after of public high schools.

And if you think that’s hyperbole, just wait until a few parents and alumni find this story and take to the comments or Facebook. They’re fiercely proud of this school, and with good reason.

So let’s take a look at the three homes (two zoned for Mockingbird Elementary, another zoned for Geneva Heights) we’ve chosen this week. (more…)

Word came early today that Allie Beth Allman & Associates executive vice president Jack Jacobs, adoring father and husband to luxury real estate powerhouse Doris Jacobs, father to their two beautiful powerhouse daughters, passed over the weekend. Jack, who passed away early Sunday morning, June 10, losing his four-year battle with pancreatic cancer. 

“We cannot imagine a life without him, for he always lit up the room with his dashing looks and quick wit, and was completely devoted to his family,” said daughter Teffy Jacobs. “He will be missed and never replaced — he was truly one of a kind!”
