Rarely do we come across a home that is an urban contemporary through and through. So color us thrilled when Virginia Cook Realtor Angela Downes reached out to us about this white hot contemporary in North Dallas. Not only that, but this home, situated north of Preston Trails Golf Club and west of Preston Road, is inside the Dallas city limits, but located within the boundaries of Plano ISD. 

And the spaces inside this home, with their soaring ceilings and huge windows, are a breath of fresh air. It’s no wonder then that we’ve named this artful urban contemporary our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans. There’s so much to love in this luxurious, clean-lined home that we cannot wait to show you.

We called it. When we first heard of Sphinx Development‘s plans for a townhome community just west of Corinth and south of Cedar Creek, we had a feeling it would sell out quickly. There’s a dearth of new construction in the $200,000 range, and plenty of opportunities for infill just east of North Oak Cliff. So we’re not surprised in the least to hear that all 49 units of the development’s initial phases have been snatched off the market.

The Fiji Townhomes development, marketed by Virginia Cook Realtor Angela Downes, will soon launch a third phase that will include lofts and retail, as well as office space. According to Sphinx, Phase Three will be ready for occupancy in 2018.

The first phase of the Fiji Townhomes development is almost sold out. The affordable prices and functional floorplans are attracting a lot of interest.

The first phase of the Fiji Townhomes at Compton and Fran Way won’t be finished until July and it’s almost sold out, says Virginia Cook Realtor Angela Downes, who is marketing the property. The brand new development by Sphinx is set just west of Corinth and south of Cedar Creek in an area ripe with opportunity.

Of course, Dallas is experiencing a real pinch in entry-level homes right now. With median home prices in our region topping $300,000, Candy has declared the $200,000 range all but unattainable, relegating an entire generation of would-be homebuyers to keep forking over their meager salaries to their landlord.

But is it?
