Devonshire Traditional Tops Our Dallas Open Houses This Week | CandysDirt.com

A classic Devonshire traditional that’s updated and gorgeous with almost 4,000 square feet and a fabulous backyard caught our eye this week. That’s why it’s the lead for our CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week post. Every Thursday, we pick three fabulous open houses in Dallas (and the ‘burbs from time to time) you shouldn’t miss.

This week, our houses range in price from $437,500 to $1.295 million. Let us know what you think of our choices, and if you know of any we should feature next week!

3628 Mockingbird Lane is ready for its close-up!

Remember the movie Father of The Bride? Whether you saw the original Spencer Tracy version or the Steve Martin remake, one thing has remained constant — the look of that iconic house. The white, two-story colonial with green shutters is the quintessential all-American family home.
