RichardsonEvery 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.

Four-Bedroom Traditional in Gated Community

Open house: Saturday, Jan. 12, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

This four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath home was custom built on a huge lot overlooking a Breckinridge Park, right in the gated community of the Hills of Breckinridge. (more…)

Splurge vs. Steal is a new feature on CandysDirt.com. Every week, we look at two properties that offer something in common, but are miles apart in their asking price.  

This is the tale of two renovations, both big and beautiful, in the northern suburb of Richardson. These two houses are half a mile apart from each other and a 25-minute drive to downtown Dallas. They’re both represented by Anne Westphal with Ebby Halliday Realtors, who has lived in Richardson since the 1970s.  

“They’ve both been totally remodeled, feed into Pearce High School, and are within a mile of [the University of Texas at Dallas],” Westphal said. “Richardson has a small-town feel and people love all the parks, the revitalized rec centers — it’s also less expensive with amazing retail surrounding it.”

Let’s take a look!

richardson midcentury

Richardson Heights is one of the hottest neighborhoods in DFW. It’s located just outside the LBJ loop, has great schools, and the houses are full of character.

I’ve found a just-listed Richardson midcentury modern ranch that is simply stunning! Located at 302 W. Shore Dr. near W. Belt Line Road and N. Waterview Drive, this beauty is listed by Anne Westphal and Morris Hanys with Ebby Halliday Realtors. It sits on a three-quarter-acre creek lot on a quiet street—this is one of the prettiest lots in the city.

The interior is renovated with luxury in mind, but keeping many classic, original elements and modernizing the floorplan. It’s a perfect blend of retro charm and on-trend appeal!

With four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bath, two living areas, and 3,232 square feet, this 1959 Richardson midcentury is spacious and totally livable. I love the flow and airy feel inside, and the killer curb appeal outside. For families, it doesn’t get much better, with so much space for kids and pets in the house and yard. Let me give you a tour.
